How to Economize School Bathrooms

School-Lavatory-SystemsTo economize school bathrooms, we begin by developing a design that incorporates accessibility, durability, and amenity into the basic restroom layout.  Stall locations and dimensions are developed first.  Lavatory system areas are designated in a manner that makes the most efficient use of space.  Accessorization can then be done by populating these two key areas with varying degrees of amenity that address the fundamental needs of students. 


When the design is done first, it is easier to recommend products that fit the budget of the school and still accomplish the objectives of the project. 


Toilet Partitions - Plastic Laminate - Ceiling HungWhen it comes to toilet partitions, schools on varying budgets have a choice of materials that will allow them to construct stalls within the parameters of available funds.  Vandal resistance, low maintenance, and long-term durability are key elements to consider in addition to the obvious considerations of privacy, accessibility, and overall functionality.  From this perspective, building a low-maintenance environment with minimal replacement costs is one way to economize school bathrooms from a long-term perspective. 


In terms of the highest grade materials we offer, stainless steel partitions and solid plastic partitions definitely give schools the greatest advantage in resistance to long-term wear and tear and any attempts at deliberate vandalism.  These are high price point items, however, and some schools may not be able to afford them.   It is possible to substitute plastic laminate or phenolic stalls that feature sufficient moisture and vandal resistance to offer long-term performance after installation.  In the short-term, such options offer the obvious advantage of lower construction costs.  Often these options are exercised in school environments with medium to light restroom traffic and a lower likelihood of vandalism. 


Another way to economize school bathrooms is to eliminate the constant expenditures onThe Advocate Lavatory System - 2 Station paper towels.  Paper towel waste is also something of a sanitation issue, and paper towels can be used to stop up toilets and vandalize floor areas.  Hand dryers eliminate these issues.  They add a hygienic value to the environment, and they also use a minimum of energy in comparison to the cost of constant repeat bulk purchases of paper towels. 


Both wall space and budget can be handled with conservatism through a number of lavatory system options.  The best way to do this is to look for lavatory systems that can service more than one student at a time.  Most of these systems have fewer connections than previous generations of sinks, so they take less time to install.  Ordering such a lavatory with touch free activation adds further value by building water conservation into the equation.  ADA accessible models are available in all major lines.


Sensor Activated Towel DispenserAt this point, accessorization becomes a matter of populating key areas with various essentials and amenities.  Both can be accomplished with multi-purpose unit that allow facility managers to economize the school bathroom and still offer users the very best level of accommodation.  Accessory options exist for stall interiors, vanity areas, and general wall areas.  Combination units conserve on space as well as costs, making for a more efficient, orderly design at the end of the day.
