Solid Plastic Shower Rooms For School Gyms
Solid plastic is the most popular material to use in building shower stalls for schools. Solid plastic is a low maintenance material which is hard to scratch. Tests have proven it to resist pressures less than 8 pounds per square inch. Similarly, over 192 pounds of force are required to dent solid plastic. This makes it ideal for schools with vandalism problems. Graffiti can easily be removed from the surface, and panels never have to be repainted because they are contiguously colored throughout. Solid plastic partitions are also eco-conscious. They are manufactured from 30 percent recycled HDPE plastic.
Phenolic core is a durable material that is usually used in high traffic areas. Phenolic is highly attractive, with a variety of finish options and colors. As a low-emitting material, it is GREENGUARD Certified. Not only do phenolic core shower panels for schools resist water, but they are also bacteria and oil resistant. Private schools with high numbers of students using the shower at one time may want to consider the higher price point on phenolic because of its environmental friendliness and its additional hygienic qualities that differentiate it from solid plastic.
