When ordering Commercial Restroom Partitions, it’s important to get precise measurements. You’ll need to measure the height of the room, from the finished floor to the finished ceiling. If the floor isn’t installed, the thickness of flooring will change those measurements. Measure each toilet compartment from wall to wall, and from the wall to the center line. Depths are measured from the wall to the front edge of the partition, allowing a minimum of 30 inches of space for the door to swing in. Other measurements are pivotal in getting the right fit, and the experienced staff at Commercial Restroom Partitions will help you get the right ones.
Account for ADA Compliant Stalls
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires stalls with a minimum 60-inch width and 56-inch depth for wheelchair accessible partitioned areas. Doors on these units swing outward, allowing more clearance and fewer obstructions.
Walk-in accessible partitioned toilet stalls should be 36 inches wide, and a minimum of 60 inches deep. ADA compliance has other guidelines that you’ll need to familiarize yourself with, and Commercial Restroom Partitions can help with that, too.
Choose the Configuration, Materials and Finishes
Once you have your measurements and a general idea of the floor plan, then you can think about materials and installation preferences. Some commercial bathrooms use floor-mount partitions, and others work with ceiling-mount configurations. Still others use a combination of floor and ceiling styles for the most durable installation.
