Replacing commercial bathroom partitions does not have to be as daunting as it may appear. There are many options that will allow you to completely remodel your restroom and remain well within your budget. Understanding the process of remodeling, and knowing what options are available to your facility, will help you expedite your project with the best possible outcome.
Begin by Taking Detailed Measurements.
Before taking measurements, draw the layout of your restroom. Include the entrance, any alcoves, and all restroom stalls. (Don’t worry about artistic ability. The point is to capture the measurements for your order—not draw a blueprint for the contractors). Most importantly, measure the spaces between your existing commercial bathroom toilet partitions. The average standard stall is 36”, and ADA stalls are typically 60”. Be sure to confirm all existing stalls currently conform to these measurements. If they do not, call our office and we can advise you on how to make the proper measurements.
Decide on Partition Materials
Powder Coated Metal
If you are on a very tight budget, and if your restrooms experience little or no vandalism, you can remodel your bathroom with commercial toilet partitions made from powder coated metal. These stall dividers are the most affordable and should hold up quite well under normal wear and tear.
Solid commercial bathroom toilet partitions are a bit more expensive, but the investment is worth it. They are manufactured from recycled materials and are ideal for companies who are “going green” because solid plastic is environmentally friendly. They are corrosion and moisture resistant and difficult to scratch or dent. If they are damaged by vandalism, they are easy and affordable to repair.
Stainless steel commercial bathroom partitions are admittedly high-end in both price and quality. Generally, they are found in very fine restaurants, hotels, and professional office buildings. If you are managing such a facility, consider the aesthetic advantages in addition to the durability that stainless steel adds to your design. Any marring resulting from vandalism (which is infrequent in high-end environments) can be buffed out by your maintenance team in a matter of minutes. Stainless steel lasts for years and retains its luster if properly cared for.
These commercial bathroom toilet partitions are very hard and vandal resistant. They are designed for the toughest environments and are also good for healthcare facilities. Phenolic is the most resistant to bacterial buildup and is preferred by healthcare facilities for this reason. Phenolic’s higher cost is offset by its low replacement factor.
