Why Bathroom Stalls for Total Privacy are Top Priority

November 10th, 2012 by
Share


Bathroom stalls for total privacy represent an ideal blend of function, aesthetics, and user amenity. You have to think about a blend of these three factors any time you are developing a new restroom design.  This holds equally true for both new constructions and renovations.  New build outs are expected to look new by offering a blend of the latest fixtures and accessories and an interior design that reflects a certain awareness of decorative trends.  Remodels can be even more demanding than new constructions because these projects are usually undertaken with a limited budget.  Expectations are typically just as high as they are for new constructions, yet funding for these expectations is severely limited.  Organizations have to make some very tough calls when determining bathroom design priorities.  If only one or two things can be replaced with available budgets, the things that matter the very most to a user are the things that need to be upgraded.

Without question, the total privacy of your bathroom stalls is going to rank near the top, if not at the very top, of any priority list you make. People will use practically any mirror you hang on the wall so long as it does not distort their reflection and as long as it is cleaned.  People will also use lavatories that are years behind the times so long as the sinks and faucets are kept clean.  People will also use a trash can even if it is already filled to the brim with refuse—so long as whatever they are throwing away does not fall back on them.  Few users purposefully throw paper towels and other waste on the floor, but if these things fall out of the trash after they throw them away, they typically pretend to not notice this and simply leave the room.

On the other hand, people may turn right around and leave the restroom almost as soon as they enter it if your bathroom stalls have site lines between the doors and pilasters. Some site lines are as large as ½ inch wide, allowing a person to see into the stall even when the door is shut and locked from the inside.  These site lines can be eliminated by adding door jambs to pilasters so that light cannot travel through this gap and generate visibility.  Total privacy can be achieved by replacing 55 inch panels and doors with panels and doors that measure 72 inches in height.   Toilet compartments built with larger components do require some investment on your part.  However, if you have a limited budget that can only afford to partially upgrade your restroom interior, bathroom stalls are the best places to invest those funds because total privacy here ensures total comfort for your user regardless of the aesthetics of other restroom fixtures.

How do you Save Wall Space in Retail Bathrooms?

October 25th, 2012 by
Share


In the attempt to save wall space, many retail bathrooms one of the most important parts of any restrooms to be absolutely certain they are in full accessibility code compliance.  This is typically less necessary than many store managers think.  Users really do not care about where stalls are located, or where urinals are placed, so long as stalls are accessible and comfortable.  In men’s rooms, men do not really care where the urinal is, so long as it isn’t right next to the sink where they are washing their hands.  As important as stall quality is to people, and as necessary as accessibility is to persons with disabilities, the last thing a person sees when he or she leaves the restroom is the lavatory and vanity area.  A negative experience in a crowded vanity area can leave a lasting negative impression on the mind that makes the user shy away from using the store restroom in the future.

When people avoid using retail bathrooms, they typically spend less time in stores.  Less time in your store means less money spent on the things in your store.

It actually works against your efforts to generate repeat business when you try to force a standard toilet stall layout on your retail restroom and sacrifice the size of your vanity area to save wall space.  With determination on your part, and ingenuity on the part of XPB Locker Supply, you can have our design team analyze your floor plan and develop a custom retail bathroom design that meets with accessibility code, honors personal privacy, and leaves you more room near the entrance to install a multi-user, eco-friendly lavatory system that gives both able-bodied and disabled persons a pleasant, comfortable experience as they prepare to leave the restroom.

Most stores do not have the long, rectangular restrooms that office buildings and airports have.  Only the high-end department stores offer this level of luxury, and they have plenty of wall space as well.  More than likely, your store has, for lack of a better term, a room that is much more “squared” in geometry and somewhat smaller than the very large public restrooms in larger buildings.  In this instance, you save wall space in your retail bathroom by separating the ADA stall from the standard stalls, and by possibly mounting urinals on the far sides of the stalls rather than closer to the door.  This leaves you almost half of the front wall on one side to devote to a larger lavatory and better vanity accessories to accommodate your users.

How to Economize Industrial Washroom Design

October 20th, 2012 by
Share


Should we economize our industrial washroom design by purchasing less expensive partitions?

No.  Partitions are expensive to begin with.  They carry the added higher cost of labor intensive installation.  Having to reorder more partitions, possibly pay to customize them, and then reinstall your entire stall layout will eat up any front-end savings almost immediately.  You are better off investing in solid plastic now and receiving a return in the form of lower maintenance and reduced replacement costs.  Plastic is amazingly corrosion resistant, impact resistant, and, if damaged, easy to repair in house without having to pay for special repairs.

You can further economize your industrial washroom design with plastic partitions by using some of them as employee shower stalls.  Individual showers, including ADA compliant showers, can be placed within these stalls to accommodate the need to wash off contaminants at the end of the shift.  Using a single space for both restroom stalls and shower stalls eliminates the expenditures of building a separate shower room.

How do we create enough room for both shower stalls and toilet stalls?

You free up wall space by using a central washfountain.  We recommend a standard model, centrally mounted, to leave as much of the wall open for lockers, showers, toilet areas, and urinals.

What about ADA compliance?  Do we need an ADA compliant wash fountain?

No.  ADA washfountains have shallower bowls.  People have to wash their arms and hands longer and end up using more water.  In an industrial restroom design, it is better to use a corner wash fountain or Frequency wall mounted lavatory to accommodate disabled persons.  Your restroom is still compliant, but special spaces are allocated for compliance, saving overall floor and wall space in the process.

How can we build ADA stalls, standard stalls, showers, and two separate wash areas all in the same bathroom?

This always appears in impossible challenge that is really not impossible at all.  Typically, the original design needs to be modified in a few key points to free up just enough room to fit all the necessary features into the floor plan.  By experimenting with different stall layouts, and different locations for hand washing and/or vanity areas, we can make the existing space do everything to meet the basic needs of both accessibility compliance and workplace demand.

Can you help us with our industrial washroom design?

Yes.  We need measurements and any preliminary CAD drawings to begin the process of designated precise spaces for specific functions.  Fixture and accessories are easier to choose within budget once the design is finalized.

Saving Space in Your Small Restroom

October 13th, 2012 by

With help from XPB Locker Supply, you can save space in your small restroom without sacrificing accessibility, privacy, or comfort. The biggest challenges face those who are remodeling their restrooms and planning to replace only a portion of their existing fixtures.  Or, they may have ordered fixtures from different vendors, and things such as the lavatory system they purchased represent fixed dimensions that cannot be altered.  Other areas of the room, such as stall placement, stall size, urinals (if renovating a men’s room), and urinal screens are the products that have to be relocated or adjusted in size to fit the existing square footage of the room.  It may also be necessary to reposition certain restroom elements in order to make everything fit.

The first step in this process involves getting a copy of the blueprints and checking for correct measurements. We can normally see, very quickly, where different sections of the restroom can be altered to increase floor areas and distances between walls.  In most cases, two basic challenges face us that we have successfully worked around in a number of projects in the past.

The first challenge typically involves insufficient area between the vanity area and the far end of the restroom. There simply is not enough room, in some small restrooms, to put a row of stalls (and urinals if a men’s room) between the vanity and the wall.  Rather than compromising the number of stalls, or violating ADA codes, we may recommend placing the ADA stall along the far wall itself, and positioning the other partitions and urinals differently so as to fit between the vanity area and the end of the room.

This solves the problem of saving space when the length of the room may not be enough to accommodate all that is specified.  But what do you do when the room is too narrow to build partitions out from the wall without crowding restroom occupants? In these settings, we may need to alter the sizes of the stalls themselves in order to make the stall depth better fit the overall width of the room.

In some projects, we have reduced partitions width as much as 48 inches to create an enclosure that was functional and private, but that also allowed us to save space between the stall and the wall. In some small restrooms, the accessories inside the stalls made in swinging doors impractical, so we further customized the partitions with doors that swing outward, allowing for larger, multi-function dispensers and other amenities to be fitted to stall interiors.

Economizing School Bathrooms

October 10th, 2012 by
Share


How do you economize school bathrooms in terms of stall construction?

We can help create a design, determine a style, and offer a range of materials that match your existing space and budget.  For long-term value, you can invest in solid plastic partitions which offer the highest level of vandal and moisture resistance.  Stainless steel also offers these advantages and contributes a very sophisticated look to the design.  However, if you are on a budget, plastic laminate, solid phenolic, and even baked enamel in some cases can be substituted in the interests of reducing costs.  If you have a smaller population, with less likelihood of deliberate vandalism, these materials can offer you immediate short term value and satisfactory long term value.

Do you help with design?

We can design your entire restroom for you if you give us the appropriate measurements for wall areas and square footage.  We can design the toilet stalls for both standard user and ADA access.  Sometimes this involves developing a new layout, sometimes it is only a matter of determining the number of stalls that is truly needed for a student population.  We will also recommend mounting styles and customization options, which include those that offer increased privacy for students.

Do you economize school bathrooms in other respects?

Yes.  Lavatory systems with fewer connections are easier for contractors to install.  Multi-user functionality allows for more than one student to be serviced in less physical space.  Also, using touch free faucets, a school can reduce the cost of operations by conserving water.

Do these new lavatories have ADA compliant models?

Yes.  One in particular, the Bradley Frequency lavatory, has the most exceptional knee clearance of any type of commercial sink on the market.  Other options include the Crescent, the OmniDeck, and the Verge, to name a few.

Do you have combination paper towel dispensers and waste receptacles?

Yes.  These are great for saving on space, but there is an even better way to save on space and budget.  Hand dryers eliminate the need for paper towels, which in turn also creates a cleaner environment with less temptation to vandalize floors and toilets with paper towels.  This eliminates constant repurchasing of new supplies, and it results in a much cleaner environment.  Other combination fixtures exists for stall areas and vanity areas that can economize school bathrooms even more.  Ask our design team about options when you call us.

How to Increase Privacy in Airport Restrooms

October 9th, 2012 by
Share


In recent years, questions about privacy in airport restrooms have made their way into the news. Whether or not privacy is truly lacking in many airport facilities is not the point of this article.  Rather, we wish to address the very real perception that many people have that toilet stalls in these facilities do not provide patrons with sufficient privacy to feel comfortable.  In addition to the added stress that increased security measures have added to air travel, airports certainly do not need added negatives to their public image.  Improving the perception of privacy and comfort, regardless of the actual reality of either, has an inverse positive impact on public opinion and the possibilities for ongoing, repeat business.

However, airports may be hesitant to invest funds in what they may assume is going to be an extensive remodel of their existing facilities. This level of exorbitant spending is not necessary unless other considerations such as user access, code compliance, and water conservation become pressing.  In most renovations, however, increased comfort and privacy can be generated simply by replacing toilet partitions.  Existing fixtures and accessories can be left in place.  New partition materials and colors allows a near identical match to existing hardware to be installed without having to remodel the airport restroom in its entirety.

The solution is new pilaster and stall door design that closes the uncomfortable gap that typically measures up to one half inch between standard pilasters and doors. With doorjamb installed either on the interior edge of the pilaster (if the door swings outward), or on the exterior edge (if the door swings inward), a completely enclosed space can be created around the user.  No “site line” will be present between the door and the pilaster, and the door latch will indicated if the stall is in use or currently vacant.

Even more privacy can be created by customizing the sizes of the doors and partition panels to reach all the way to the floor. This is commonly done when customizing partitions for shower stalls, but it has gained increased popularity in commercial restroom stall design as well.  The space between the floor and the bottom of the panel can rise considerably above the ground.  Closing this space basically creates a room within a room where the user can experience a level of privacy equivalent to his or her restroom at home.  Airport restroom remodeling costs can be offset with new moisture and vandal resistant partition materials that add value to purchase through low-maintenance longevity and superior color schemes that compliment a wide range of interior decors.
