Installing Restroom Accessories for Dynamic Industries

July 21st, 2014 by

Bathroom-Accessories-For-Public-RestroomsProject Summary

XPB Locker recently was contracted by a company by the name of Dynamic Industries to act as a vendor and installer of commercial restroom accessories.  Dynamic Industries offers a number of fabrication, manufacturing, and construction services to offshore oil companies.  A new facility, which has the ability to monitor and remotely control oil flow, is being constructed in Gonzalez, TX.  This facility features a men’s restroom in the shop area, and a men’s and a women’s restroom in the office area.

As we do throughout the state of Texas, XPB Locker both supplied and installed both commercial restroom accessories and restroom partitions.

Commercial Restroom Accessories Spotlight

Toilet Tissue Dispensers

In all three restrooms, we installed cost effective, durable toilet tissue dispensers.  These particular units are surface mounted to the partitions and hold two rolls each, one on top of the other.

Grab Bars

In the office area restrooms, we had to install ADA compliant stalls as well as standard stalls.  ADA regulations stipulate that grab bars be installed on both sides of the toilet to allow disabled persons to maneuver within the stalls.Restroom-Accessories-For-Public-Facilities

Napkin Disposal

These disposal units for feminine products are often offered to companies as commercial restroom accessories for women’s restrooms.

Paper Towel Dispensers

We installed paper towel dispensers that feature a decorative look and a fine satin finish.  In the shop unit, we recommended a more utilitarian model that combines a trash can with the paper towel dispenser in an single assembly.

Soap Dispensers

Horizontal style soap dispensers, which are also ADA compliant, were mounted over the sink in all three restrooms.

Mirrors

While theft and vandalism were not an issue for Dynamic Industries, we recommended mirrors typically used for this purpose because of the way they mount nearly flush to the wall.

Commercial-Bathroom-AccessoriesRestroom Partitions

We constructed ADA compliant and standard stalls in the office restrooms and standard stalls in the shop restroom.  We used baked enamel partitions to save on cost because vandalism and humidity are not an issue in this facility.Request A Quote

Toilet Paper Dispensers

June 10th, 2014 by

Dual-Jumbo-Roll-Toilet-Paper-DispenserShould we install recessed toilet paper dispensers or surface mounted dispensers?

In most cases, the additional expense of cutting out a section of your wall in which to mount a recessed unit really isn’t justified.  Surface mounted units are far easier, and also more cost-effective, to install in the average public facility.

This is not to say, however, that you should immediately dismiss recessed models altogether.  If you have a very small restroom, you may need to invest in recessed units that offer maximum space saving value.  Just keep in mind that the cost of mounting the units will be higher, if you have to cut holes in the wall or partition to mount them.

Should we install controlled delivery or non-controlled delivery toilet paper dispensers?

Most users prefer non-controlled delivery over controlled delivery.  Few people really appreciate having their toilet paper divided into little squares for them.  The primary advantage that controlled delivery units offer your organization is a certain amount of vandal resistance.  Miscreants are less likely to trash a restroom with toilet paper if they can only remove a limited amount at a time.

Controlled delivery toilet paper dispensers are most often used in public schools and other public facilities that are designed for Surface-Mounted-Toilet-Paper-Dispensersmaller children.  Adult facilities are better accommodated with non-controlled dispensers that allow people to choose the amount of paper they use.  Another thing to remember when selecting a unit is accessibility.  ADA regulations mandate that non-controlled dispensers are to be used in handicapped restroom stalls.

How many rolls should the unit contain?

This depends on how often your maintenance staff can refill the units.  In a high traffic environment, such as a large church, amusement park, or public transportation facility, you should consider investing in toilet paper dispensers that hold anywhere from 2 to 4 rolls of paper.  You should also consider investing in multiple roll units if you contract maintenance services to a third party.  If your cleaning crew only visits your building 3 or 4 times per week, then multiple rolls offer a better assurance against users running out of paper.

Is it better to buy large roll toilet paper dispensers?

Yes, if you have the wall or partition space to support a larger unit.  If not, regular sized rolls in a multiple roll configuration are preferable.  Low traffic restrooms, like the ones found in small office parks, typically only require single roll dispensers.  Request A Quote

Paper Towel Dispensers

June 3rd, 2014 by

Automatic-Paper-Towel-Hand-DispenserDon’t hand dryers do a better job of drying hands than paper towel dispensers?

The more sophisticated models do an excellent job of getting the hands dry.  However, there is more to consider here than simply drying hands.  Recent studies showed that while electric units effectively remove moisture from the skin, they do a very poor job of removing bacteria that are transmitted by touching surface areas inside the restroom.  If your organization caters to large group of people every day, or if you have a high percentage of children in your facility, you have to think about doing everything you can do minimize the risk of infection.  There was a time when paper towel dispensers were lauded as being far more sanitary than cloth towels on rollers.  Ironically, in spite of all the improvements in technology they are still the best means of minimizing disease transmission by touch.

What about the ongoing cost of refilling paper towel dispensers?

No doubt you already know that the per unit cost of a box of paper towels is not that expensive.  However, even smaller costs do add up over a period of months.  The overall cost to you is really going to depend on the volume of your restroom traffic. If hundreds, or even thousands, of users are passing through the restroom each day, then of course you are going to have to buy a lotLever-Push-Operated-Paper-Towel-Dispenser of refills.  You might want to offset this by installing electric dryers and paper towel dispensers side-by-side. This accommodates user preference on all levels.

Do paper towel dispensers break easily?

No.  The units we sell are made from stainless steel and are very difficult to damage.  The recessed models in particular are highly vandal resistant.  Electric hand dryers are motorized devices that become inoperable the moment the unit fails.  Replacing an electric unit with a damaged motor is far more expensive, too, than replacing a paper towel dispenser.
