A Quick Ship Restroom Partitions - Baked Enamel - Between Wall CMost retail bathrooms attempt to save wall space by installing smaller lavatories in order to leave plenty of room for stalls and urinals.  Urinals cannot be located too near the vanity area, so a certain amount of wall space is sacrificed in order to provide an acceptable level of comfort.  This usually results in a restroom characterized by fully accessible and very comfortable stalls built of fine partition materials, but a cramped vanity area built around a cheaper, inferior lavatory that was chosen only on the basis of its ability to fill a tiny space.


XPB Locker Supply can help you develop a custom public restroom layout that will save wall space even more, and will offer your users a more attractive and user-friendly vanity area that features an energy efficient, ADA accessible, multi-user lavatory system or lavatory deck.


If your retail bathroom is considerably large and distinctively rectangular, you can use an alcove layout to save on wall space.  The ADA stall spans the entire width of the far wall.  A row of standard stalls runs along one of the longer walls.  On the opposite wall, a vanity area can be built near the door, with plenty of space still left for a row of urinals mounted closer to the ADA stall, and separated from the vanity by several feet of space and an extra urinal screen.


The problem with this idealistic scenario is that it can only be done in very largeThe store restrooms that are significantly longer than they are wide.  Most store restrooms, however, feature walls that have far less total square footage, and four walls of the room are close to near equal in length.    


To save wall space in retail bathrooms that are either squared or near squared, you have to think beyond the typical layouts that most partition websites recommend and look for creative ways to get all the essential fixtures and accessories into the existing area without creating a space that is too constrictive for multiple users to comfortably navigate.


In small and mid-sized store bathrooms with a basically squared floor plan, a better way to save wall space is to build an ADA stall along one wall and build your standard stalls along the opposite wall.  If this is a men’s restroom, both the ADA and standard toilet stalls can be built free standing.  This will leave corner areas in the back free for urinal installation.  While this does not describe the current typical retail bathroom layout as far as men’s restrooms are concerned, it nevertheless offers the advantage of using the stalls themselves to separate the urinal area from the vanity area so you do not have to sacrifice several feet of walls and install an extra urinal screen for comfort. 


Granite and Stainless Steel Toilet PartitionsThe above scenario describes just one of hundreds of possible ways we can help you save wall space and build a larger, more functional, and far more user-friendly vanity area.  Consider the fact that most users typically care more about a large, clean, and comfortable hand washing area than they do about how the stalls appear in relationship to one another.  So long as stalls are accessible, private, and comfortable, users are happy.  Sacrifice a clean, comfortable, and accessible vanity area, however, and customers may spend less time in your store to avoid using a retail bathroom that feels cramped and uncomfortably lacking in privacy.
