Commercial Toilet Partitions for Bathroom Privacy

September 29th, 2012 by
Share


Commercial toilet partitions for bathroom privacy solve the problems of diminished aesthetic and user amenity that standard partitions often generate. Standard partitions can be impeccably manufactured and assembled correctly and still not create the desired privacy and comfort that people expect from a restroom stall.  This is not the result of the way they are manufactured, but the inevitable consequences of the laws of physics.  A door and pilaster connected by a latch do not touch each other physically.  This leaves a sight line into the interior which can grow ever wider if the flooring beneath the pilaster shifts with the natural movement of the earth or the settling of the building as it ages.  The gap that results can and will make users uncomfortable even if no one ever actually looks into the toilet stall.  The very fact that someone can see into the interior if they want to creates an unsettling feeling for many people that can motivate them to avoid the restroom—and the facility that houses it—in the future.  This can diminish the likelihood of repeat business, and if any type of privacy violation ever does actually occur, it can be a public relations disaster for an airport, a bus station, or a public school.

Commercial toilet partitions for bathroom privacy use a very simple modification to keep these potential negatives from happening in the first place.  There is nothing at all different about the pilasters and panels. What differs is the design of the door hinges and the edge of the door that meets with the pilaster.  On standard partition doors, the edge of the door is slightly rounded on the end.  With European-style, Bradley no-site partitions, the door is built with a lip that overlaps the pilaster edge and acts as a door stop when it is closed.  Unlike standard partition doors, you cannot swing the door inward to enter the stall.  You open the stall door much like you open the door to a house or a private office, and when you close it, you seal off the interior with the same level of privacy you can expect when you go home at night, or when you step into a conference room for a private conversation with an employee.

In a very real sense, then, Bradley no site commercial toilet partitions for bathroom privacy create a level of personal comfort and amenity that generates a lasting, positive first impression that can directly impact the likelihood of repeat business.

Industrial Washfountains for School Shop Areas

September 27th, 2012 by
Share

Shop class is typically one of the most popular electives in public schools. While the safety hazards are typically marginal compared to those of many chemical processing and manufacturing plants, students nonetheless have to wash their hands and arms of a variety of contaminants with which they come in contact.  Industrial wash fountains with deep bowl designs are obviously preferable for this task.  However, public schools must put ADA accessibility on equal footing with functionality—much more so than factories—in order to accommodate the increasingly diverse demographics that now constitute what was once an environment that in decades past consisted almost exclusively of able bodied male students with a passion for physical labor.

A very different student body now constitutes the typical school shop area. Not only have gender boundaries come down, but many students who suffer from disabilities are now engaging more than ever in physically challenging activities.  As such, the design requirements of an educational shop facility are somewhat inverted in comparison to their industrial counterparts.  Whereas in factory restroom design, separate accommodations for disabled workers often makes for both a more efficient AND accessible environment, schools must take a more inclusionary approach that reaches out to everyone at once.

Industrial washfountains here must be ADA accessible AND fully capable of meeting the medium to heavy-duty hand washing requirements of metal shop and wood shop. A large bowl design is still required to provide adequate cleaning area for students to wash all the way up past the elbows when they are exposed to contaminants.  However, the bowl cannot be deep, as it is in the classic design, because ADA requirements specifically mandate a shallower bowl that will allow wheelchair bound users to access the interior.   At face value, it would appear that shop areas in schools face an insurmountable challenge.  On one level, they have to provide students with a way to clean up after class.  On another level, however, the typical design featured by most hand washing stations has too deep a bowl for handicapped students to use.

The solution to this dilemma can be found in Bradley’s new Terreon Deep Bowl industrial washfountain. While it bears the label of a deep bowl unit, it actually features a bowl that is shallow enough to meet with ADA stipulations, but that provides enough interior volume to closely equivocate the traditional deeper bowls we are accustomed to seeing in hand washing fountains.  While not recommended for factory environments, The Terreon hand washing station will meet all the typical requirements of shop areas in schools and provide 100 percent compliance with all pertinent accessibility codes.

Toilet Partitions for School Bathrooms

September 25th, 2012 by

Toilet partitions for school bathrooms can be purchased in baked enamel, plastic laminate, satin finish stainless steel, or solid plastic. Typically, schools on tight budgets opt for either baked enamel or plastic laminate.  Provided the risk of vandalism is minimal, these partitions can last well over a decade under normal-high restroom traffic.  Schools with more funds who wish to invest in vandal resistant grade material have a choice between stainless steel with a satin finish, solid phenolic, or solid plastic.

All Bradley Mills school restroom partitions are manufactured with the intention of being used in any layout. Most of our door latches are ADA compliant, and special hardware is available for advanced accessibility requirements.  School restroom panels, pilasters, and doors can be mounted either floor to ceiling, ceiling hung, floor braced, or floor mounted overhead braced.

Baked enamel and plastic laminate both feature a solid core to which materials are applied and sealed together on the edges and ends. There really is little difference in price between these two options, and both can be expected to last well over a decade provided the risk of vandalism in low.  Many people feel plastic laminate is a little better suited to very high traffic restrooms, which is why these particular toilet partitions for school bathrooms are also found in many other facilities such as retail centers, restaurants, and movie theaters.

Schools may not want to take a chance, however, on losing their investment to vandalism. Even in the most peaceful of neighborhoods students can still engage in various forms of criminal mischief.  If funds are available, we always recommend that a school district invest just a little bit more in materials that are impact resistant.  This will better ensure against the need to spend even more money in the event that panels become damage and need to be replaced.

There are three materials available that can better meet the requirements of vandal resistance. They are stainless steel (with a satin finish—textured costs 30 percent more), solid phenolic, and solid plastic.  Stainless steel restroom fixtures have become iconic to the collective mind, having been used for so many years in so many types of bathrooms ranging from formal to modern to contemporary.  More colorful interiors can be fitted with either solid phenolic or solid plastic toilet partitions for school bathrooms.  Both are very impact resistant, available in a wide spectrum of colors, and moisture and impact resistant.

High End Designer Bathroom Accessories for Commercial Office Buildings

September 23rd, 2012 by
Share

Xlerator Hand DryerThe Diplomat™ series by Bradley Corporation represents a superb blend of aesthetics and functionality that can make the interior of any commercial office building restroom a truly upscale, accessible, and amenable environment. These high end designer bathroom accessories feature two unique attributes that give them an almost universal appeal.  The first of these is a compact design that allows them to be fitted to even the smallest of restroom interiors and toilet stalls.  The second feature is a new design known as “dual-curve geometry.”  This unique style has a way of adding to space without consuming it, which we will see in a moment.  These products can be ordered in recessed, semi-recessed, and surface mounted styles that will accommodate any new construction, remodel, or renovation.

Let’s look first at the aesthetic contribution these commercial restroom products make.  Dual-curve geometry actually adds a new dimension of form within the confines of a very compact object.  While the eye actually sees an extra dimension of material around the perimeter of the product, the space around the product is not consumed.  The optics of the eye and the brain then interpret this convolution of matter as a veritable expansion of space.

In small commercial office building restrooms, high end designer bathroom accessories have the effect of enlarging the apparent size of a wall or partition, which in turn makes a small bathroom appear larger than it actually is.  In larger restrooms, however, they have something of a counter punctual effect.  Along very long stretches of wall, positioned above wash fountains or lavatory systems, they have a way of distinguishing the surrounding space as points of visual distinction.  This makes user stations, which serve a purely functional purpose, much more inviting and personal.

Because less can be done with more using the Bradley Diplomat™ series, it does not take a very large budget at all for a company to create a truly upscale restroom environment. Even with a two-stall, single lavatory layout, these products can be used to blend décor and functionality to such a fine degree that a level of design previously only seen in the largest of corporations can now be extended to the suburban office park on the borders of a residential community.

High end designer bathroom accessories also offer a high level of accessibility to disabled persons who either work in or visit commercial office building. Some are designed for ADA compliance, while others can be mounted in at any height required by Federal, state, or local accessibility guidelines.

Health Club Personal Storage Lockers

September 20th, 2012 by
Share

Health club personal storage lockers have become so popular that they are now used by many other types of organizations besides health clubs. Schools have now begun to use plastic lockers in their gym areas and cubby lockers in the classroom.  Shoe lockers have become popular in bowling alleys, retail establishments, factories, repair shops, and even private homes.  Box lockers are also favorites with the corporate and retail world.

Depending on the line you choose, these lockers are made from either solid plastic or a solid core surrounded by a tough plastic overlay. This plastic surface is moisture and graffiti resistant, resistant to scratching and denting, and easily compliments a wide range of interior designs due to a broad spectrum of color options.  Lockers are warranted against delamination and rust under normal usage conditions, and none of our lockers ever require refinishing or repainting.

Storage space is not only sufficient, but also highly organized in many models. They average locker interior measures 12” wide, 18” deep and 72” high or 12”, 15” and 18”, depending on the line and model selected.  Additional space for storing a full set of clothes neatly is accommodated by the “S” lockers.  These health club personal storage lockers have a larger vertical space on one side to accommodate clothes on hangers.  Storage shelves and hooks make it possible for users to organize various personal items, company issued equipment (if present), and clothing.

Lockers are used to store a variety of personal, educational, or company-issued items. Shoe lockers are specifically designed for storing shoes, but they provide enough room for other valuables and personal items to also be stored in the compartment.  In schools, cubbies are used to store classroom supplies and personal belongings.  Designer and plastic lockers in gyms can store athletic equipment, personal clothing, and personal valuables.

Facilities can choose what mechanism they want to use to secure locker contents. Most lockers come equipped for padlocks or key locks.  Some are available with our Digi locks, a system that features a digital keypad, four-digit-user-selected code, usage indicator and a low battery indicator. Other options include built-in key locks, and coin retain locks

Health club personal storage lockers can withstand most any type of corrosive environment. Unlike metal, plastic does not rust.  Plastic that is solid features contiguous color throughout, so it never needs repainting or refinishing.   All hardware is made from stainless steel with a 20 year warranty against rust.

Industrial Stainless Steel Unbreakable Security Mirrors

September 19th, 2012 by

Industrial stainless steel unbreakable security mirrors are used by schools, correctional facilities, public transportation centers, sports arenas, government buildings, and mental health care wards.  They offer an excellent alternative to the cost and possible hazards associated with broken glass mirrors.

Stainless steel mirrors are needed when the risk of vandalism or violence is high. These mirrors are extremely durable being virtually impossible to destroy or vandalize.  They also eliminate the possibility of broken glass being used as a weapon.  Any facility would prefer to install materials to last through most any miscreant activity and maintain a level of safety for their visitors.

Schools, detention and penal facilities, mental hospitals and high traffic public venues require these mirrors to retain their use as long as possible. Even some government buildings use unbreakable mirrors in their restrooms for security reasons.  Another advantage to stainless steel mirrors is their resistance to bacteria and germs.  Stainless steel is easy to clean and disinfect – an important point in high population, close quarter spaces such as jails and school locker rooms.

Industrial stainless steel unbreakable security mirrors can be mounted on any wall at any height, just like any other mirror. Many of these mirrors are designed with hanging brackets for theft resistant mounting.  The backing is tempered in Masonite and bonded with adhesive so securing it to the wall with mounting screws makes it virtually tamper resistant.

Stainless steel mirrors may have some distortion, but they reflect almost as well as glass. The mirrors are highly polished to reflect as close as possible to an actual glass mirror.  They are available in a variety of sizes, depending on the style requested.  There is also a large variety in the type of stainless steel available for these products.  They include heavy gauge steel, 20 gauge stainless steel, 22 gauge stainless steel. and 14 gauge stainless steel.

Our Angle Frame Mirror with Shelf is also available with additional options in reflective surfaces such as Laminated Float Glass, Float Glass, Plexiglass, Tempered Glass, Bright Annealed Stainless Steel and Highly Polished Stainless Steel.

Safety is important no matter where we are, and stainless steel mirrors are the keys to maintaining a higher level of security. Whether in a municipal sports facility, busy bus station, detention facility, mental hospital or school, no matter where industrial stainless steel unbreakable security mirrors are placed, users can enjoy a mirror without cracks, chips, or hazardous breakage.

Commercial Outdoor Hardwood Furniture

September 18th, 2012 by
Share

What types of organizations buy commercial outdoor hardwood furniture?

Universities, colleges, municipalities, and local office parks are some of our larger customer bases.  All of these facilities have a notable preference for linking classic, historical, or formal architecture directly to the natural world.  Wood is the best material to use for this because it a foundational natural substance.  It will compliment brick, trees, indigenous vegetation, gardens, and courtyards with a soft, natural appeal that stands out without overwhelming the senses.

Many businesses and schools even use the benches and trash receptacles as indoor furniture pieces.  Since we are all accustomed to wooden furniture in our homes, the visual effect of wooden indoor furniture in a business or school helps to immediately create a warm, welcoming environment.

Can the furniture handle the weather?

Yes.  Tables, benches, trash receptacles, and planters are made from either high quality pine or mahogany that is treated to handle the elements.

Where would you recommend mounting the mahogany bench?

As the highest-end item in our commercial outdoor hardwood furniture selection, it deserves the premier spot on your campus.  It can be placed near the entrance of a concert hall or administrative office.  County seats normally place these benches in front of historical renovations of the original courthouse.  Corporate offices may place one in front of the main building to indicate its significance.

Do you have cheaper benches?

Yes.  In fact, our standard wooden bench with back is affordable enough to allow towns, schools and businesses to create ornamental seating arrangements.  The iron arm rests are curved to reflect late 19th Century and early 20th Century designs.  The seats and backs can be made from either pine or mahogany.  You can also choose backless benches that are excellent for trails, walkways, restaurant waiting areas, and smoking areas.

We also have several wooden waste receptacles based on inverted conical designs or square designs.  We recommend that you invest in mahogany wood planters as well.  These square boxes are large enough to plant miniature gardens, flower beds, and even small trees.  They are an excellent way to offset the obviously utilitarian purpose of waste receptacles with a warm, natural touch.

Do you have picnic tables?

Yes.  Wooden picnic tables are ADA compliant and measure either 6 or 8 feet in length.  They are ideal for break areas and also make excellent additions to the outdoor patios of family restaurants.

Bathroom Design Toilet Room Layouts

September 14th, 2012 by
Share

How important is material type to bathroom design?

It is very important.  Toilet room layouts are based on the number of users anticipated within the space of a day.  Partitions in heavy traffic environments need to durable enough to handle constant usage.  In areas where vandalism is a concern, contractors may only have one or two material options that cost more on the front end but also have greater durability that pays off the investment through lower maintenance costs and cost-effective repairs to damaged surfaces.

The true level of cost must always be ascertained by balancing purchase costs with product ROI through superior longevity. Clients are always free to order whatever partition types that they feel will cost them the least.  However, choosing the cheapest material is less than optimal for a particular bathroom design can easily cause the project to run over budget if the partitions prove incapable of handling either heavy usage and/or vandalism.    Organizations that have to keep repairing, or even replacing, panels and doors that are inadequate to the demands of users will end up spending far more money in the long run that they will if they invest initially in higher grade materials more suited to the actual environment.

XPB Locker Supply always provides multiple options for toilet room layouts that take tight budgets into account, but that also allow organizations to opt for materials that will pay them back over the course of time. Sometimes this can be a rather difficult balancing act between two points of value, and by giving our clients more than one choice; we can offer time-saving value in the form of professional recommendation based on proven experience.

Along with helping clients select the very best material for their facility, we also add value to the transaction by developing a detailed bathroom design that specifies stall configuration, accessibility, and customization for the purpose of amenity.

With over 30 years combined experience in developing and installing toilet room layouts, we can recommend configurations ranging from corner alcove to free standing stalls. Furthermore, we can recommend the best way to mount and customize pilasters, doors, and panels for maximum access and user comfort.

These services are not extras that clients have to invest in. They are part of our quotation process.

With every final quote, we publish a free drawing to our clients that specifies layout, mount, accessibility compliance, and hardware customization.

Plastic Coated Outdoor Benches

September 13th, 2012 by
Share

Plastic coated outdoor benches are manufactured out of 2 3/8 inch O.D. galvanized tube and are further reinforced by 1 and 1/16 inch cross brace. Legs are designed to make the bench portable so it can be placed either indoors or outdoors.  Seats are 2 X 10 inches, with bench lengths measuring 6, 8, and 15 feet in length.  15 foot benches have 3 legs for extra stability.

Portable benches are great to use in civic centers that have an athletic field that is used for various types of sporting events. The football field may also be the baseball field or soccer field, depending on the season.   This lets civic directors create whatever kind of sideline or dugout seating is needed on command simply by moving the benches into position.

County fairs and travelling amusement parks are another large user group of portable benches. These organizations setup on fair grounds or other public grounds (the smaller ones even use large parking lots) for only a short period of time before they move on.  Plastic coated outdoor benches provide amusement park guests with the best possible seating.   Park staff can set them up anywhere that is convenient, and benches can be moved around if guests request different seating arrangements.    Because they are water resistant they are ideal for any environment, any time of year.

Portable indoor and outdoor benches are also ideal for larger churches that build recreational and entertainment facilities into their sanctuaries. These churches need flexible seating because these areas are used for a variety of different purposes that require different types of seating.  Portable indoor/outdoor benches are excellent options for team seating in gyms, outdoor picnic areas, and locker room areas used by church staff and members.   Benches can be moved to a central storage location as well if these facilities are needed for any type of assembly that requires chairs or tables.

Portable benches are also a great option for public seating in these factory outlet malls and outdoor strip centers that are becoming popular all over the country. The advantage to using plastic coated outdoor benches is that they are extremely weather resistant and can take heavy usage.  To some extent, they are also impact resistant and rather easy to repair.

Since most of these outdoor malls are very secure, the risk of theft is low enough that portable seating can be used during business hours, and then stored in a locked location after shops close. Letting customers arrange their own seats in comfortable, shaded areas can even be an attraction factor for the mall.

Outdoor Accessories for Public Parks

September 12th, 2012 by
Share

Outdoor accessories for public parks help make for a more environmentally friendly visitor area. Trash receptacles need to be covered with something when it rains so they do not flood and spill out their contents.  There are a number of bonnets and dome lids park managers can choose from that will keep the interior of trash cans dry.  Another advantage these covers offer is they trap odors inside the trash can.

In parks where people do a lot of biking and skateboarding, they sometimes collide with trees. While this will damage the person if it is a large tree, it will damage the tree if the tree is only a few inches in diameter.  Steel tree guards can protect trees of any size by encircling them with a protective metal barrier whose curved surface also helps to deflect impact.

Outdoor accessories for public parks are also intended to keep the area safe. Fire is one of the biggest threats to forested areas that need to be avoided at all costs.  People throwing cigarettes into a trash can often starts a fire that escapes the trash container and spreads throughout the park.  It is best to fit trash cans with ash bonnets that provide smokers with a place to extinguish their cigarettes.  Even in parks where smoking is not allowed, these ash bonnets should be installed on trash containers near the park entrance so that people will extinguish their smoking devices upon entrance to the grounds.

Another thing we have to look out for in parks are skateboarders who can easily get too close to benches or tables. Anti-skateboard tabs install on the edges of tabletops and benches to keep skaters away from these surface areas.

Outdoor accessories for public parks are also manufactured to enable park guests to have a much more comfortable experience during their visit. Shade is an essential amenity for park coordinators to provide.  Few people want to be in the direct sun for very long.  Umbrellas allow for shaded areas to be created around any seating or dining area.  Not only can they be mounted in picnic tables, but they can also be mounted in umbrella stands that can go anywhere in the park where there needs to be more shade.

XPB Locker Supply also sells park accessories that are designed to protect table legs from impact and to secure trash receptacles against thieves and vandals who would attempt to remove them.
