Aside from plumbing, toilets, and lavatories, restroom dividers are the most important things that an organization can install in a commercial bathroom. Aside from plumbing, toilets, and lavatories, restroom dividers are the most important things that an organization can install in a commercial bathroom.  Partitions define the emotional comfort level of the restroom as well.  Aside from a clean, odor free environment, privacy is the most important consideration to most people when they visit a public facility.


Anyone who walks into a public restroom hopes that they can find in that environment the same level of privacy and dignity that they experience at home.    If people feel uncomfortable about a particular restroom, they will feel uncomfortable about the building it is in, and they may never return. 


This is obviously bad for businesses.


Because of this, almost all public restrooms now use some type of restroom dividers to create private stalls around toilets and urinals.  These partitions are used in both private and public sector facilities.  They are found in the world of commerce, transportation, administration, government, defense, recreation, and education.    


The simple fact of the matter is that every one of these sectors is operated by humans who have to go the restroom at some point in time during the day.   Organizations that invest in bathroom partitions see to it that people are appropriately accommodated with the privacy they expect.


Another very important fact is that different buildings have different interior architecture in their restrooms.  These interiors must be accommodated as well.   Restroom dividers are consequently manufactured in a manner that allows them to be mounted in four different ways.   


Ceiling hung restroom partitions attach only to the ceiling and stop before they reach the floor.  They are used to conserve floor space in very small restrooms. 


Floor mounted partitions are used in remodels where either the ceiling cannot be penetrate, or it cannot be feasibly reached due to height. 


The most vandal resistant and sturdy partition walls are floor mounted at the bottom and braced at the ceiling.  The brace not only penetrates the ceiling but runs back toward the wall parallel to the top of the partition.


Floor and ceiling hung partitions are not quite as rugged as overhead braced equivalents, but they come close enough.  They are also cost effective, easier to install, and well able to handle heavy traffic.


In addition to the four mounting styles, there are also four primary materials that are used to manufacture restroom dividers.   


Partitions are made from powder coated metal, stainless steel, solid plastic, or phenolic. 


Powder coated partitions are fireproof and made from 100 percent recycled metal content.  Many designer colors are available, and they are the least expensive and least difficult dividers to install. 


Stainless steel partitions are more expensive of course.  That is because they are much more attractive and hygienic.  They are the favored restroom dividers of the health care industry for this reason.  Obviously as well, they are super vandal resistant.


Plastic is low maintenance and very inexpensive.  It is also very vandal resistant and particularly resistant to graffiti.  This is because it is water resistant and does not absorb moisture from pens or markers.  This also makes plastic ideal for hot, humid climates. 


Phenolic restroom partitions behave much like plastic dividers.  However, in addition to being water resistant, they are oil and bacteria resistant too.  This makes them more impervious to chemical damage and more hygienic for health conscious environments that may not be able to afford stainless steel. They can be used for showers partitions, and they are easy to clean. 


Restroom dividers can be customized to accommodate the dimensions and special needs of individual restroom facilities.  ADA compliant units are available so full handicapped accessibility is guaranteed in the restroom.
