When Should You Buy Metal Restroom Partitions?
Whether using stainless steel or powder-coated steel, the durability of metal restroom partitions allows for years of use in high-traffic areas with a minimal amount of maintenance required. To resist humidity, our watertight, interlocking Permaseal™ panels are designed to resist moisture penetration and rust and therefore they are suited to areas where humidity is not a concern. Our metal restroom partitions have also met the criteria necessary to be GREENGUARD Certified as low-emitting materials.
Metal restroom partitions are important in buildings where appearance is a concern. High-quality buildings, such as in Class A office buildings, fine restaurants, and hotels, are top-notch in location, design, construction, and management. So many of today’s high-profile buildings put an emphasis on a sleek and modern image as part of their presentation to the public. Stainless steel partitions, with seamless Permaseal™ panels that have been welded smooth, exude this image with a no-fuss appearance. Finish options for panel edges include satin brush, 5WL, or leather grain texture.
If there is a more adventurous color palette at your disposal, powder coated steel partitions offer 15 (21?) stylish colors to choose from to meet your aesthetic needs. Further attention to design detail is also seen in the stainless-steel pilaster mounting shoe. The contoured corners of the shoe conform to the shape of the pilasters, adding to the already streamlined appearance of the partition system. The pilaster shoe is available with both the stainless steel and the powder-coated steel restroom partitions.
In buildings of smaller stature and lower profile, such as small office parks, Class B and C buildings, and rural churches, where cost-effectiveness overrides image as a crucial factor in restroom partition selection, metal is the way to go. This is particularly the case with our powder coated steel partitions, which feature the most economical partition material available. Thanks to Bradley’s Permaseal™ panel edge design, there is no need to worry about rust or moisture penetration. Interlocking facing metal sheets are welded together, with smoothed seams and corners, to lock out moisture and thus prevent rust from occurring from the inside out.
Our metal restroom partitions are also backed by a 15-year rust-out material warranty. Both metal restroom partition systems are accompanied by corrosion- and tamper-resistant hardware, available in standard-duty chrome-plated zamac or heavy-duty stainless steel. Both stainless steel and powder coated steel systems make use of a new, redesigned pilaster mounting shoe, which further saves time and money that would otherwise go to maintenance. The shoe assembly employs wider “L” brackets, contributing to the increased stability of the partition system. Slots in the brackets allow for vertical and horizontal adjustment of the pilasters without the need for costly disassembly and reassembly. Unsightly rust stains are also avoided with this stainless-steel pilaster shoe.
Metal restroom partitions are good choices for buildings in which vandalism is not a concern. Unfortunately, public restrooms are well-known sites for graffiti, whether they be in a bar or a school. A metal partition is not an uncommon canvas for this type of vandalism, especially if something hard-to-remove such as marker is used. In the case of vandalism, metal restroom partitions tend to be better-suited to facilities that are occupied by a smaller group of occupants, and one that isn’t marked by considerable anonymity or turnover. Small churches are an ideal location for metal restroom partitions since they pose very little risk for vandalism by their own guests or congregation members. This can also be said for restaurant restrooms that are available only to employees, as well as restrooms in small-town, family-owned restaurants.
No matter what the building or occupancy type, our metal restroom partitions are available in a variety of mounting styles, accommodating different construction methods, such as overhead braced, floor braced, ceiling hung, and floor to ceiling configurations. Several mounting options are also available with urinal and entrance screens.
