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.

What bathroom lavatories do you recommend for heavy traffic restrooms?
The Express line by Bradley Corporation is specifically designed to accommodate multiple users. The design of the bowl ensures that up to three users per sink can stand at the lavatory without crowding one another. Each user has access to a personal station so he or she does not have to stand in line to use the sink. Express systems are highly vandal resistant as well, being made from Terreon®, which is chemical, burn, scratch, and impact resistant.
There are also three station Frequency lavatories which offer the very best accessibility to wheelchair bound users. These sinks can also be configured for up to 3 users at a time. The choice between these two lines should be based on the amount of accessibility regulations that apply to a given part of the country, and, of course, on the level of comfort and convenience needed by handicapped users of the facility.
How many stations does a bathroom lavatory in an office building need?
In an office environment, people are working most of the time. Even before and after lunch, restroom traffic will not be as high as large public centers for sports and transportation. Consequently, facility managers can invest in single user or double user stations. There are many unique designs from which to choose that will compliment any number of formal and contemporary architectural styles.
What lavatory systems work well with contemporary design?
We have had a lot of compliments on the Verge line of commercial restroom sinks. Verge systems are simple, rectilinear, and feature a nice color selection that favors most modern and interior decors. We also recommend looking at the Express Crescent series. This single user station is ideal for ultra contemporary designs in new office buildings. It is a good space saver and water saver, and it can be configured for 1 or 2 users at a time.
What is the most environmentally friendly substance used to make Bradley bathroom lavatories?
There are two equally green materials used to make Bradley lavatory systems. One is Evero™, a material made from natural quartz. Evero™ systems are seamless, single mold units that are exceptionally easy to keep clean. There is also the highly popular Terreon®, which is a solid surface material made from recycled ingredients. It is both highly sanitary and powerfully impact resistant. Sinks made of both materials are GREENGUARD certified.

What are some of your more specialized commercial bath fixtures for public restrooms?
One of our more popular Division 10 products is bathroom shelving. We really cannot think of any type of restroom, anywhere, that cannot benefit from a few extra shelves. People use them mostly while they are washing their hands. However, they also prove highly useful to people taking a shower in restrooms that are furnished with shower stalls, and for people changing diapers at baby changing stations. Having a separate shelf for a laptop case or purse keeps the baby changing station free of everything except the baby and the diaper bag. Another important item we recommend for women’s restrooms is the sanitary napkin dispenser and disposal station. This is especially convenient for hotel restaurant restrooms, hotel lounges, and restrooms in convention centers. We also have grab bars for toilet stalls built with ADA accessibility in mind.
What basic commercial bath fixtures for public restrooms can be found in your inventory?
We have a full assortment of soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, mirrors, free standing waste receptacles, and wall mounted waste baskets. You can choose from the most basic models ideal for smaller restrooms in convenience stores and gas stations, or you can select combination models that feature paper towel dispensers with built in trashcans, and toilet paper dispensers with toilet seat covers and other amenities built into the fixture. Paper towel dispensers that feature touch free, motion activated controls are becoming increasingly popular among clients who are seeking to maintain a cleaner facility. We also provide security mirrors for jails, prisons, and mental health facilities, along with other mirror designs ideally suited for vandal resistant restrooms, restroom remodeling, and hotel restrooms where a small shelf attached to the mirror makes it extra user friendly for personal grooming.
What commercial bath fixtures for public restrooms help make the restroom feel more personal to guests?
You can never go wrong with little things like facial tissue dispensers that give people with allergies an alternative to reaching for the toilet paper or a paper towel. If you are building shower stalls into your commercial restroom, go ahead and install shower seats. While these are often installed for ADA compliance and/or the needs of the elderly, they are remarkably comfortable for any child or adult to use and makes a person feel much more comfortable taking a shower in a public restroom.
