Bradley Bradmar™ Solid Plastic Quick Ship Partitions

December 30th, 2011 by
Share

Q: Are the only Bradley Bradmar™ solid plastic quick ship partitions the only toilet dividers that can be ordered with expedited shipping?

A: No.  We recommend Bradmar™ because it has proven to be the most durable of all divider materials.  Other materials ranging from Baked Enamel to Stainless Steel can also be ordered expedited shipping.  The determining factor is whether or not partition components in finite sizes will meet your requirements.

Q: What do you mean by finite sizes?

A: Finite size refers to the available space you have in your restroom for toilet stalls.  Various components that are used to assemble Bradley Bradmar™ solid plastic quick ship partitions must fit into these spaces.  Spaces with unusual dimensions typically require non-standard sized components which are typically not kept in stock.  Standard size components and colors that are kept in stock can be quick shipped and delivered in about 7 working days.

Q: Do Bradley Bradmar™ solid plastic quick ship partitions come in many different colors?

A: The colors that we have in stock are deep blue, gray, and starry night.  If you need different colors, they are available from the factory, and they will take longer to ship.

Q: Is Bradmar™ tougher than stainless steel?
A: In terms of hardness, no.
  However, the hardness of the material is not what determines its durability in use.  Stainless steel can be damaged in a number of ways.  Certain industrial cleaners can ruin it.  Steel wool can also scratch it badly enough that it becomes visibly marred.  The cost of repairing a stainless steel partition is very high—if it can be repaired at all. 

Bradley Bradmar™ solid plastic quick ship toilet partitions, on the other hand, are not as difficult, nor are they as costly, to repair. 

Q: Is Bradley Bradmar™ plastic easy to maintain?

A: Yes.  It is made of one solid piece of pre-colored, contiguous plastic.  This makes it resistant to the peeling that damages other partition materials that are composed of multiple, compressed layers of various substances. 

Q: If our Bradley Bradmar™ solid plastic quick ship toilet partitions ever get damaged, can they be repainted?
A: Actually, the plastic is dyed, not painted. 
You don’t want to repaint these dividers if they are damaged.  What you want to do is to seal off the scratches, cuts, or dents that severe impacts or vandalism can inflict.  This can be done with an acetylene torch. 

Keep in mind that it takes 60 pounds of force to damage one of these toilet stall dividers, so don’t go out and buy an acetylene torch unless you need one.

Toilet Enclosure

You can build a toilet enclosure out of Bradley partitions that come in a wide range of material builds, colors, mounting options, and component accessories.  Stalls can be as large or as small as they need to be, and they can be configured for full ADA compliance in any building environment.

XPB Locker is well aware of the fact that cost plays a very big role in determining your final choices in partition materials. Low-end and mid-range options include very affordable baked enamel to plastic laminate and Phenolic.  More expensive choices are stainless steel and solid plastic.  Factors such as ease of cleaning, resistance to moisture, ability to withstand heavy usage, and vandal resistance are proportional to the cost of each partition type.

If you are working on a limited budget, ask our team to help you determine just how durable and rugged you need your partitions to be. There are many ways to customize a toilet enclosure that will give it the best chance of lasting in your particular environment.  Our team has full access to all Bradley Corporation configuration, customization, and accessory options.  There is a way to build your restroom stalls with materials that your organization can afford to invest in.

There are also many color choices available that will allow you to build a toilet enclosure that is aesthetically matched to its environment. Restrooms in restaurants, hotels, schools, libraries, and churches not only have to be clean, but they have to also look attractive.  Having multiple color choices, many of which are very eclectic, allows contractors to accommodate everything from basic single user restrooms in retail stores to high-end hotel and casino restroom interiors that feature the most sophisticated interior designs.

The ability to mount toilet partitions in many different ways also makes it possible to custom design a toilet enclosure for different space considerations, room size limitations, and user requirements. Partitions mount either to the floor, to the ceiling, to the ceiling and the floor, or to the floor with an overhead brace bracketed to the back wall.  These different mounting options exist because different room heights, floor constitutions, and accessibility requirements call for different design options.  It is possible to design a secure, sturdy stall in any environment thanks to this versatility in installation options.

There are many different bathroom accessories too that can be installed in a toilet enclosure.  These include both restroom amenities, such as dispensers and toilet seat covers, and customization tools such as grab bars that make stalls ADA compliant. Ask our staff about these and other options, including our quick ship program for select configurations.

Stainless Steel Hand Washing Station

December 22nd, 2011 by

Regardless of the size of your commercial, public, or industrial restroom facility, there is a stainless steel hand washing station ideal for your organization.  Not only is stainless steel highly durable, it is also one of the most hygienic surfaces you can choose from.  Everything from airports and sports stadiums to factories and health care facilities can benefit from stainless wash fountains that are easily accessed, easily controlled, and are designed to conserve water while meeting the needs of up to 8 users at once.

There are three basic geometries in bowl design you can choose between when ordering a stainless steel hand washing stationThese bowl designs are built to accommodate the immediate environment in which the wash fountain is installed.  If you want to put the unit in the middle of the restroom, then a circular design is recommended.  This floor-mounted unit can easily accommodate 8 users at a time, making it ideal for heavy traffic restrooms in large buildings. 

Another option is to mount one or more stainless steel hand washing stations along the wall.  Semi-circular bowls are designed to mount flush with the wall in the back and extend outward to handle as many as four users. 

If you are truly limited on space, then corner units are also available that can accommodate 3 people at once.   This diversity in bowl design, combined with varying heights and bowl depths, allows you the freedom you need to adapt washroom fixtures to the existing space without having to rework the space to try to fit the fixtures in.

Stainless steel hand washing station design also makes it easier to build ADA restrooms.  Accessibility is easier to provide with a fountain because, unlike a sink, it does not have exterior pipes connecting it to the wall.  The bowl can be built to extend outward from the base, giving the wheelchair bound user all the leg room that he or she requires.  

These benefits are further magnified by the innate efficiency of a stainless steel hand washing station.  With flow controls that regulate standard usage at .5 gallons per minute, and heavy duty hand washing at 3 gallons per minute, these stations can meet the needs of users without wasting a drop of water.  Control options range from push button to foot pedal to infrared sensors.  Heights range from juvenile heights o 36 inches to 54 inches so that both children and adults can be accommodated.
