Metal Toilet Partitions for Commercial Restrooms

August 30th, 2012 by

What environments typically prefer metal toilet partitions for commercial restrooms?

Clean environments, as many call them, prefer stainless steel for its super hygienic qualities.  Stainless steel is non-porous.  Because it blocks the absorption of water, bacteria do not have time to breed on its surface.  The material is remarkably easy to clean—so easy, in fact, that many people have to be reminded to only use warm soap and water to wipe the surface down.

Stainless steel toilet partitions are popular in hospital restrooms, medical clinic restrooms, and food processing plants for this reason.  Crews can go into the restroom several times a day and wipe down the partitions in only a few minutes.  This minimizes labor costs and keeps the facility clean throughout the day.

There are also many organizations that prefer the attraction factor that metal partitions add to commercial restrooms.  A large percentage of new restroom constructions and remodels feature an upscale look, a contemporary/modern look, or a blend of the two.  Stainless steel features a unique aesthetic that many could describe as a blend of the chic and the minimalist.  As such, it contributes sophistication to more formal bathroom designs, but it contributes a sense of less-is-more when surrounded by contemporary and modern designs.  This makes it something of a universal material in the world of restroom build outs.

How durable are Bradley stainless steel toilet partitions?

They are exceptionally durable due to two unique features of their construction.  For one thing, panels feature a seamless construction that is created by bonding two separate metal sheets together.  The interior of each sheet consists of a water-resistant honeycomb surface that enables sheets to tightly fit together.  The panels are welded around the edge to create the Bradley trademarked Permaseal design that makes the entire length of the edge, along with all four corners, absolutely impervious to moisture.

Are stainless steel toilet partitions environmentally friendly?

The newest generation is.  Along with many other materials that Bradley uses to make toilet partitions, stainless steel is now GREENGUARD Certified as a low-emitting substance.  This allows facility managers in charge of LEED projects to take advantage of the physical and aesthetic qualities of stainless steel and still remain compliant with new, environmental awareness and building requirements.

What mounting styles are metal toilet partitions for commercial restrooms?

They can be mounted to the floor, ceiling hung, floor to ceiling mounted, or floor mounted overhead braced.

Commercial Hand Wash Fountain with Foot Control

August 29th, 2012 by

The two most popular types of handwash fountain activation are foot pedal control and infrared touch free control. There is no doubt that infrared activation, which activates only one sprayhead at a time, conserves more water than a foot control that activates all spray heads at once.  However, we must also realize that commercial hand wash fountains that are activated by foot controls are nonetheless still more efficient than an equivalent number of commercial lavatories.  The degree of water conservation, while noticeably different between foot activation and IR activation, may not really save some organizations as much money as a face value understanding of technology would suggest.

This is because the amount of money actually saved is relative to how often the device is used consistently throughout the day. In some very high traffic environments, a steady stream of multiple users is continually using the handwashing station.  However, this is not the typical usage that these fountains experience in the average commercial or industrial environment.  In these far more common environments, commercial hand wash fountains are typically used by one user at a time during most of the day, and by multiple users during intermittent periods of brief, heavy traffic.

What water is actually “wasted” during these brief periods does not represent a threat to the typical operating budget. What money could be saved through what is at best marginal conservation in the light of intermittent use is not going to come close to returning the investment in a more costly unit compounded by higher installation costs.

Due to the fact that the average public school and the typical industrial facility typically have only brief periods of high restroom traffic, it is not cost effective for either to invest in a unit that will cost at least $1,000.00 more on the front end and also add the additional cost of electrical wiring to the invoiced. IR units operate on hard-wired electrical circuits that have to be plumbed in addition to water connections.  This can really become expensive for circular units mounted in the very center of the restroom.

In light of the fact that most employees wash their hands before and after lunch and right before they leave the factory, it is more cost effective to install a foot controlled commercial hand wash fountain that still saves more water than typical bathroom sinks. This is even more practical for a public school, where teachers typically encourage students to use the restroom only between classes, before and after lunch, and before and after the school day ends.

Commercial Bathroom Lavatories for Public Restrooms

August 28th, 2012 by

What is a good space saving, vandal resistant bathroom sink?

We recommend the BradMate Two Station Stainless Steel Lavatory System if you are looking for a blend of vandal resistance, water conservation, space saving ergonomics, and multi-user functionality. These commercial bathroom lavatories for public restrooms are built with flow restrictors that maintain a .5 GPM at all pressures.  Water pressure ranges from 20-80 PSI.  Models can be ordered with one user or two user stations.  Shipped preassembled from the factory, the BradMate takes only a fraction of time to install, which makes it ideal for remodels and reconstructions as well as new constructions.  Popular installations include bathrooms in public transportation centers, municipal buildings, any medical facility, and in high schools in very high risk neighborhoods where vandalism is common.

What commercial bathroom sink offers the highest level of accessibility?

We recommend that you consider the Express Lavatory MG-2.  It features the highest number of compliance features that conform to not only ADA regulations, but also to Juvenile accessibility requirements and TAS compliance.  A variety of control options are available that include battery infrared, electronic pushbutton, air metering valve, and infrared operation.  With 73% fewer connections than other commercial bathroom lavatories for public restrooms, and with reduced plumbing rough-ins, these lavatory systems can be installed at drastically lowered installation labor costs.  Maintenance costs are also lower thanks to impact resistant Terreon® and a contiguous, one piece bowl design that makes it easy to clean this multi-user station in a very short amount of time.

What lavatory systems do you recommend for progressive and upscale environments?

Two lines in particular stand out.  These are the Verge system, made from Evero™, an all natural quartz blend that is GREENGUARD Certified, and the Vessel Sink Lav Deck Straight Edge, made from recycled Terreon® that is vandal resistant and easy to clean.  One of the finer points of the Vessel lav deck system is the vessel bowl sinks that extend up from the base of the deck.  With a blend of contemporary minimalism and formal appeal, they add an upscale look to any bistro, wine bar, cigar bar, or hotel restroom.

Another lavatory sink that is ideal for progressive, environmentally conscious organizations is the Verge system, made from Evero™ all quartz.  This GREENGUARD Certified, all natural material is non-porous, non-emitting, and perfect for any college, LEED certified building, or fine restaurant bathroom environment.

Both of these superb commercial bathroom lavatories for public restrooms come preassembled from the factory and offer facility managers a cost effective savings on labor installation costs.

Sports Bleachers

August 25th, 2012 by
Share

What is the difference between elevated and non-elevated sports bleachers?

Elevated bleachers are built into a raised deck that is accessed by one or more staircases.  They also feature aisles that separate seating rows into two or more sections on either side of each aisle.  This type of sports seating is also known as a grandstand and is normally found in large professional stadiums and larger educational campuses.  Grandstands are both more complex and more expensive to install, and they are typically out of the price range of smaller schools, towns, parks, and summer camps.

Non-elevated bleachers do not have a separate deck, staircase, or aisles.  Instead, the rows of seats themselves serve a dual function as stairs.  People simply climb up the sides of the stand and move toward the center of the bench to find a seat.  Smaller stands that are only 3 or 4 rows high do not even require safety rails.  Many are portable and provide ideal indoor seating for gymnasiums in churches, small schools, and civic centers.  Fixed bleachers of up to 10 rows can also be moved with special stand movers that are sold separately.  These movers allow outdoor leagues to customize stand areas for different types of games and sizes of crowds.

Why would an organization choose non-elevated sports bleachers?

Normally they are chosen when portability is an issue.  As we alluded to above, many municipalities often use the same fields and courts for multiple types of sports.  Non-elevated bleacher stands allow different leagues to set up their own spectator areas with each new sports season.

Another reason for choosing non-elevated stands above elevated grandstands is budget.  When crowds number in the hundreds and not the tens of thousands as we see in professional sports, there is little point in spending the additional money required to build elevated stands that must follow even stricter building costs and inevitably require greater labor cost investments.  With the right non-elevated bleachers properly configured, even the largest little and municipal league crowds can be comfortably and safely seated at a price point well within the budget of a township, summer camp, or smaller school district.

What types of facilities can be fitted with non-elevated sports bleachers?

Both indoor gyms and outdoor fields can be equipped with non-elevated stand areas.  Various building codes apply in different parts of the country.  Some degree of customization will no doubt be required to accommodate these codes, but the installation of non-elevated seating is nonetheless easier and less expensive than grandstands.

Cell Phone Storage for Business Employees

August 22nd, 2012 by

What types of campuses use student cell phone lockers for schools?

Since even the youngest of children now carry smart phones with them, schools of all grade levels and types are now installing mobile phone storage lockers in their classrooms.  Elementary schools encourage young children to store their phones to prevent them from playing games during class.  Middle and high school students are asked to lock up their phones to avoid distracting themselves with the Internet.  Colleges and universities also require students to store their lockers during exams so that they cannot send and receive multimedia messages for the purpose of cheating on exams that they have not studied for.

Does it cause resentment to require students—especially adult ones—to lock up their phones?

No.  What causes resentment is allowing a student to bring a phone to class and then telling him or her that the phone cannot be taken out, handles, turned on, or looked at during class. People become incredibly rebellious when you try to manage anything inside their personal space.  A mobile phone locker, however, is a designated, assigned space, NOT a personal space in the same sense that a wallet or a purse is.

The whole psychology of a student cell phone locker for school is different and therefore works to build better classroom morale and discipline.  When a student checks his or her phone into a locker, he or she is placing the phone in a safe, designated space where it will remain undisturbed until class ends.  Also, the phone is still accessible for emergencies and urgent personal communications—it is simply not TOO accessible to people whose minds can quickly become absorbed in their smart phones.

What is the best type of mobile phone locker?

There are many sizes and models that you can combine to match classroom size.  They can be mounted on shelves or on the wall, so the layout of your particular classroom, practice hall, athletic facility, or laboratory does not restrict installation.  You can choose to have your lockers equipped with key locks or combination locks.  However, you will retain master access to any locker, key or combination, through the use of a master key that comes with each unit.

Other than improved classroom focus, what specific benefits do student cell phone lockers for schools bring to educational facilities?

In high risk neighborhoods, gang activity and narcotics trafficking can be significantly limited on campus by controlling communication devices that are commonly used to set up rendezvous, meetings, and illicit transactions.  Illegal videography and photography can also be kept to a minimum by storing mobile devices that have built in cameras.

Toilet Dividers for Commercial Public Restrooms

August 20th, 2012 by

Toilet dividers for commercial public restrooms let facility managers create attractive restroom designs in any public building. Better materials let contractors build stalls that can take heavy traffic and acts of vandalism.  Environmentally friendly designs are also possible with GREENGUARD Certified partition materials.  Better workmanship and customization options, combined with outstanding industry warranties, allow for both short term and long term investment protection.

Attraction factor is easier than ever to create thanks to multiple mounting styles and a broad range of color choices. Each of Bradley Corporation’s six material options features both basic and designer colors that can compliment any type of facility from the basic to the high end.  Different ways to mount toilet stalls let contractors build sturdy compartments in bathrooms no matter what the constitution of the floor or the height of the ceiling may be.  New configuration and customization options, such as the no site configuration which eliminates the gap between the door and the pilaster, create superior privacy and upscale appeal in even smaller bathrooms.

Many facilities have to protect their investment in restroom fixtures and accessories by purchasing the most durable, and if necessary, vandal resistant supplies. Toilet dividers for public restrooms are constantly being manipulated by users.  In high traffic environments, they are opened and closed repeatedly throughout the day.  In many public bathrooms, they are often the first target of deliberate vandalism.  Facility managers have to ensure that if they invest in new toilet partitions that this investment will be protected against damage and criminal mischief.  To address this need, we offer partitions that are made from materials like solid plastic, stainless steel, and fusion granite.  These materials represent mid-level to high-end price that return your investment in the form of lowered maintenance costs and the reduced likelihood of replacement costs.

Renovations and new constructions on a limited budget can also benefit from less expensive partition materials that feature superior workmanship, the best warranties in the industry, and a range of customization options that can make even a simple restroom design comfortable and accessible. Permaseal™ edge design locks metal sheets together around the entirety of the panel’s perimeter, making even the least expensive panels durable enough to justify a 15 year warranty, which is the best in our industry.  Furthermore, all types of toilet dividers for public restrooms can be customized with a variety of hardware options appropriate to a diversity of restroom interior and user needs.  Superior customization also makes it possible to build handicapped stalls at an exceptional level of accessibility that exceeds basic ADA requirements when necessary.

Designer Bathroom Accessories for Commercial Restrooms

August 15th, 2012 by

With new designer bathroom accessories for public restrooms, you can create an immediate sense of upscale appeal in any washroom environment. Bradley Corporation’s new Diplomat™ series feature dual-curve geometry that work to subtlety expand the space around them.  Available in recessed, semi-recessed, and surface mounted options, they can be installed at any level of construction at cost-effective labor rates for conservative budgets.  Their stainless steel construction and near intuitive accessibility combine ease of function with low-maintenance operability.

The aesthetic element that this new line of products contributes cannot be overemphasized. Building appeal is largely influenced by restroom appeal.  Architects know this, and often struggle with costs associated with investing in the latest and greatest designs to create the best possible attraction factor.  However, a great deal of attraction factor can sometimes be generated more with a balanced presentation of a group of restroom products that extend appeal throughout the room.  Designer bathroom accessories for commercial restrooms are ideal for this purpose because they collectively generate a feeling of the upscale even when installed near partitions and fixtures characterized only by basic visual appeal.

The key to this enhanced aesthetic is the dual-curve geometry that every product is built around. Everything from paper towel dispensers to waste receptacles and napkin dispensers features a unique curvature that generates the optical impression of an extra dimension of space that mysteriously avoids consuming space.  This catches the eye without overwhelming it, and works on the mind to expand the actual space surrounding the form.

In small restrooms, this aesthetic can actually make the room look larger, less constrictive, and resultantly more comfortable. In very large restrooms, this same effect can create aesthetic high points around user stations that make a very large room look more personal and accessible.

However, accessibility here is more than an optical effect.  These products are actually are easier for people to operate than previous generations of similar products.  Special designs also make it easier for maintenance crews to reload supplies into the products themselves—making them less expensive to maintain in terms of long-term hourly maintenance costs.  The compact nature of the products, which visually compliments the room regardless of physical location, allows architects to mount them in wall locations that put them in easy reach of disabled persons.  Because Designer bathroom accessories for commercial restrooms look good with a wide range of partition and lavatory designs, it is also possible to easily compliment some of the more exceptionally accessible lavatories and toilet stalls that actually exceed the basic requirements of ADA code.

Flat Benches for Locker Rooms

August 14th, 2012 by

What types of facilities are wooden flat benches for locker rooms best suited for?

Honestly, they are durable enough to hold up in any athletic facility that wants to add an upscale touch to its interior.  They feature a level of craftsmanship and finish that allows them to maintain their integrity and appearance in the typically high humidity environment of a locker/shower facility.  In terms of appearance and functionality, they equal many forms of indoor furniture.

Typically, however, we see organizations that are particularly conscious of their image investing in wood benches.  This is not an absolute, but nevertheless, a noticeable principle.  Spas, upscale health clubs, and country clubs in particular prefer the classic, formal look of wood that functions as a fine, aesthetic compliment to the typically formal, conservative interiors of these establishments.

We also see some of the more upscale townhome and high-rise apartment communities investing in wooden locker benches for the private gym facilities they offer to residents and guests of residents only.

What types of facilities prefer aluminum flat benches for locker rooms?

Believe it or not, one of our fastest growing markets is the emergent church community.  Also known as “mega churches,” these religious organizations have congregations that number in the tens of thousands.  Their approach to evangelism involves many non-traditional outreach programs that mirror the secular activities of the community surrounding them.  Athletic facilities and locker rooms are almost always present somewhere in a large, emergent church.  While budgets often do allow for the superior look of wooden benches, many churches prefer portable, aluminum benches that can be moved around to accommodate fluctuating membership and different ages of members.

Civic centers are another vertical market where we sell a lock of aluminum benches.  Locker rooms in many municipal centers and stadiums tend to be utilitarian in function and minimalist in design.  This may due to limitations on budget, or a community insistence on pragmatism and simplicity.  Regardless, aluminum locker room benches are very popular in towns that build athletic facilities for local residents and local sports leagues.

What facilities prefer plastic flat benches for locker rooms?

Any athletic facility that includes a swimming pool of some kind tends to prefer plastic over other materials.  People coming out of the water are obviously soaking wet with chlorinated water.  The imperviousness of plastic to any type of corrosion makes it ideal for constant exposure to water.  Its contiguous color is added to the plastic prior to final molding, so it never loses its color or needs repainting.  Plastic is also vandal resistant and easy to repair at low costs.  Benches made from solid plastic are therefore very popular in amusement parks, water parks, and natatoriums.

Flat benches for locker rooms can measure anywhere from 36” in length to 96” in length and can be ordered with 24”W seats for ADA compliance.

Stainless Steel Commercial Bathroom Accessories

August 13th, 2012 by
Share


Stainless steel commercial bathroom accessories always seem to stay in style. With an score of new materials now emerging in the restroom architectural supply market, stainless remains a material constant that is still preferred by a large percentage of architects and facility manager.  Fixtures and accessories made from stainless steel offer superb vandal resistance, a higher level of sanitation, and an attraction factor that works with any interior design.

Organizations today who are investing in new constructions and remodels have to spend their money wisely. Products must offer long-term value to justify expenditures.  The less maintenance a product requires helps keep operating costs at a lower level.  The less likely that the product will require serious repair or replacement also offers additional savings.  Stainless steel bathroom accessories fit these requirements very well.  Their corrosion resistance allows them to endure for decades.  The quickness and ease with which they can be cleaned makes them relatively low maintenance as a general rule.  As a metal, stainless is also very difficult to break, so a certain degree of vandal resistance is to be expected.  Furthermore the most vandal resistant products used in correctional facilities are security fixtures and accessories made from all-welded stainless steel.

Stainless steel commercial bathroom accessories are also ideal for any environment that demands a higher than average hygienic factor. Medical facilities, restaurants, hospitals, and food processing plants need exceptionally clean restrooms to keep the entire facility clean.  Stainless steel is a nonporous substance impenetrable by moisture.  Since bacteria live in water, any surface that stimulates rapid evaporation by causing water to pool at the top will shorten the life of disease-causing germs.  In spite of new materials that also feature this solid surface non-permeability, stainless products are still the most popular of materials to use in restrooms where sanitation matters more than anything else.  Also, its solid surface nature makes stainless remarkably easy to clean because any trace minerals left behind by evaporating water can usually be wiped off with standard cleaning methods.

Universal attraction factor is another advantage offered by stainless steel commercial bathroom accessories. There is something about steel that can go with just about anything.  Stainless materials have a noticeable luster that typically stands out, but does not produce excessive reflective glare.  As a material that is noticeable to the eye, but also rather easy on the eye, it works with both the minimalism of contemporary and modern interiors, and also with the strict formality of upscale restroom environments.

Commercial Bathroom Accessories for Public School Restrooms

August 10th, 2012 by
Share

What types of commercial bathroom accessories do your recommend for school building renovation projects?

We recommend surface mounted, multi-function units that increase restroom functionality within the available areas of existing wall space.  Combination paper towel dispensers and waste basket units are just one example of this type of fixture.  An all-in-one design, contained within compact dimensions, offers a convenience appropriate to an upgraded facility.  Also, such multi-feature units look truly modern in comparison to the single function accessories they often replace.  People who are expecting a better restroom that features a visibly improved aesthetic will not be disappointed with the latest lines of Bradley Division 10 products.

What products do you recommend for new schools in growing districts?

We also recommend combination units in these schools because combination units speak of modernity and progress.  They make a new school “look new” and they offer convenience to larger numbers of users.  Additionally, we recommend you consider some products that will expand restroom functionality beyond the standard amenities that most of us grew up with in previous generations.  Commercial bathroom accessories like feminine napkin dispensers and disposal units are ideal for girls’ restrooms in all secondary grade levels.  Facial tissue dispensers can cut down on toilet paper waste and also speak of conscientiousness to students suffering from allergies and colds.  A variety of bathroom shelves can also be selected to give students a place to put their books and backpacks when they use the restroom.

Do you have products for alternative schools?

We have security restroom accessories that are ideal for restrooms in facilities built to educate young people with discipline issues and juvenile offenses.  These products are design to be super vandal resistant and super safe for students who may decide to act out frustration by attacking school property.  Take a look at such items as stainless steel mirrors that eliminate concerns about students breaking glass in the restroom during moments of anger.  There are a number of other products as well that have proven themselves safe in other types of correctional and mental facilities that you may want to include as line items on your design plan.

Do you have ADA compliant commercial bathroom accessories?

Absolutely.  All school restrooms, regardless of size or geography, must accommodate the disabled with special designs and products.  Items such as grab bars, and a host of wall-mounted products that can be positioned within easy reach of wheelchair bound students, can be accessed in our Division 10 products section.  Feel free to ask XPB Locker for help with your school restroom design if necessary.
