Commercial Bathroom Dividers provide the privacy that people demand in public and office restrooms. These dividers are offered in a large variety of designs and materials. This article will explore the most popular designs and materials currently on the market. Commentary will also be offered about the most common application for each type of material and the key features.
The most affordable class of Commercial Bathroom Dividers is Baked Enamel. Today they are stronger and more moisture resistant than those of the past. Their increased strength and moisture resistance is derived from the interlocking panel construction which locks facing metal sheets together without any opening. This prevents moisture from entering the interior and corroding the metal. The manufacturer backs this design with a fifteen year warranty against panel rust-out. The paint process uses the latest technology to create superior adhesion of the paint to the metal. The unit is then "baked" for a very durable and attractive outer finish. This class of divider is the least expensive and most popular with budget-conscious customers. These dividers are found in schools, shopping malls, restaurants, office buildings, and warehouse and manufacturing facilities.
The second most affordable class of Commercial Bathroom Dividers is Plastic Laminate. This is also an attractive divider that can be ordered in numerous color and pattern selections. State-of-the-art manufacturing facilities provide durable lamination and edge banding for these dividers. The dividers are constructed by using high pressure to bond decorative plastic laminates to both sides of a particle board core. All of the hardware is heavy duty chrome or stainless steel which contrasts nicely with the bolder colors. These dividers are found in movie theaters, restaurants, office buildings and retail locations. They are moderately inexpensive and are sold with a three year warranty against delamination.
Solid Phenolic is a class of dividers constructed with a resin impregnated core material. The core material is compressed under high heat and pressure which lends it strength and durability. A decorative melamine face is attached on both sides of the core and the divider is impact and water resistant. These dividers are also offered in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Since this divider is not a laminate and water resistant, it is an ideal choice for wet or humid locations. Its high strength also makes it vandal resistant. The solid phenolic is a moderately expensive divider and is frequently found in schools, stadiums, parks, showers, locker rooms, spas, and swimming pool facilities.
Stainless Steel is perhaps the most well known of the Commercial Bathroom Dividers. They are offered in a variety of finishes from smooth satin to textured and leather grain patterns. These dividers are extremely durable, attractive, and vandal resistant. Stainless steel will not rust and is resistant to most chemicals. These dividers are demanded for a number of their features but the aesthetic value is perhaps the most important. Stainless steel dividers are moderately expensive and are usually found in class "A" office buildings, high-end retail establishments, airports, restaurants, and other style conscious locations.
Solid Plastic Dividers are one of the more durable Commercial Bathroom Dividers. They are constructed of at least 30% pre-consumer recycled high density polyethylene and are dent and scratch resistant. They also have a unique ability to resist graffiti - a highly desirable vandal resistant feature. Graffiti has poor adhesion to the plastic and is easily removed with a cloth and cleaner. These dividers are sold with a fifteen year warranty and are frequently found in schools, parks, and retail establishments. These dividers are more expensive when compared to other types.
Fusion Granite is the latest design class of Commercial Bathroom Dividers. It is an elegant combination of granite and stainless steel that creates a bathroom divider that is extremely durable and stain / scratch resistant. These dividers are available in four colors of natural granite and three stainless steel finishes.
These elegant dividers are the most expensive divider on the market and are frequently found in trendy hotels, casinos, art galleries, museums, high-end restaurants, class "A" office buildings, and high-end retail locations.
