Church restrooms are high traffic areas that require
durable fixtures. Because cleaning
crews may not be present every day, materials must be highly sanitary as
well. In many churches too, vandal
resistance is an important attribute because all sorts of people visit the
cases, churches are also the targets of robberies and should be protected as
much as possible against this very unfortunate possibility.
Some of the most important commercial bathroom fixtures to consider
for a church restroom are toilet
partitions. These fixtures
represent a considerable investment and should be thoughtfully chosen. The size of the restroom and the amount
of traffic that it witnesses should be factored into the decision on what type
of partition to invest in.
church is very small, and located in a rural area, it will not see a great deal
of traffic. So long as the
partition can be wiped down clean, it does not have to have any special
features. The most affordable
material for this purpose is baked enamel.
It is not the most durable material, but for a smaller building with only
a small congregation, it is ideal for a limited budget.
Most of the mid-sized churches in suburban areas and small towns,
however, see more traffic than this.
They need something that can withstand a great deal of usage. They also need something that is
moisture resistant and easy to clean.
Solid plastic meets these requirements.
urban mega-churches, thousands of people pass through the restroom every
year. Many of these people are not
even coming to church, but rather to special programs, events, and
concerts. These church restrooms
can seem more like airport restrooms at some times, so partitions
here need the same level of vandal resistance and durability.
Hand dryers are recommended in church
reasons for several reasons. To
begin with, paper towel waste on the floor is a sanitation issue. There is never a guarantee that a
trashcan will not overflow. Even a
smaller church will have children in it, too, that like to play with paper
towels and throw them on the floor.
Unless a church is very big, it may not have a cleaning crew to come
by every day to collect this litter.
Anyone who sees it will find the odor and the mess offensive. This makes a bad impression on
Even if all the paper towels stay in the trash can and never end up
on the floor, they are still an enormous cost. It is a waste of money for a large
church, and it is a strain on the budget of a smaller church. , Using hand dryers eliminates all of
the problems associated with paper towels.
Dryers are just as capable as drying hands as paper is, and most are now
energy efficient as well.
Because most church restrooms are high traffic areas, bathroom
mirrors should be easy to clean, durable, and warranted for many years. Ideally, mirrors should be framed or
backed with stainless steel to prevent vandalism, accidental breakage, and
peeling of reflective material.
Grab bars should be installed in all restroom stalls. This will help elderly persons and
handicapped persons safely maneuver in stalls. Multiple model styles exist that are all
ADA compliant, and which can be mounted on stall walls in a number of ways.
restrooms should also have baby changing stations to accommodate couples with
small infants. Churches can choose
between plastic, antimicrobial, and full-table changing
