Bradley Toilet Partitions

October 4th, 2011 by
Share


Bradley toilet partitions have been used in several recent projects all over the country.  They have demonstrated durability and aesthetic that reveals a recession proof power of application to multiple interior restroom designs. 

One such project was the building of the first LEED certified museum in Wisconsin.  It was actually a children’s museum constructed to teach kids green living practices.  The partitions used in the project were made from Bradmar®, Bradley’s special material manufactured from recycled HDPE plastic.   

Because many children who go to the museum recycle milk jugs, this shows them how the very materials they recycle can be used to build environmentally sound architectural structures. 

Another application revolved around the aesthetic of Bradley toilet partitions.  It was the remodeling of an airport in Colorado.  The architects decided to design a restroom interior with a color scheme that reflected the scenery of the Rocky Mountains.   To do this, they chose stainless steel and fusion granite

Accordingly, fusion granite and stainless steel were chosen as the partition materials.   Not only did they mirror the colors of the landscape, but they also offered the vandal resistance essential to a high traffic restroom like we see in airport terminals. 

Vandal resistance was also a factor in a similar project in North Texas.  Solid plastic Bradley toilet partitions were used in a recreational facility because they can be wiped clean of graffiti and repaired with a heat gun if scratched. 

In yet another construction, a sports stadium was furnished with Bradmar® Bradley toilet partitions, partly because of their aesthetic, and partly because of their durability.  Particularly in stadiums, both visitors at times, and angered members of defeated, visiting teams, can take out their anger on lockers and partitions. 

Rather than using metal, which is easily dented, plastic was a much better choice.  It contributed a much cleaner, and less industrial, look to the stadium restroom interiors.  In particular, the primary aesthetic attribute of plastic in this case study pertained to the color of the Bradley toilet partitions themselves.  The color chosen by the director, a dark gray with a speckled texture, made the perfect complement to the gray, black, and silver of the building interior. 

Such a contribution was very important to this facility.  Since repeat ticket sales are the core of this facility’s business, creating a very powerful attraction factor in the building’s interior design has had a direct impact on generating tangible, financial returns on investment.

Cleaning Instructions for Stainless Steel Toilet Partitions

July 4th, 2011 by

Bradley Corporation fabricates its stainless steel toilet partitions from type 301 stainless steel, which contains 16-18 percent chromium and 6-8 percent nickel.  Type 301 stainless is highly resistant to and to a number of chemicals.

However, it is not indestructible.  While stainless steel toilet partitions are corrosion resistant, they are not immune to rust.    Anything metal rusts, just like everything living dies.  This is a fact.  However, just like you do not want to die anytime soon, stainless steel does not want to rust anytime soon. 

If you clean them every day with mild soap and water using a clean, soft cotton cloth, you have a much better chance of keeping them rust free and shiny.  However, certain environments will expose them to chemicals and salt in the air that will affect them.  Also, cleaning crews may use certain cleaning agents by mistake that can cause discoloration and rust.

Educate your staff starting now in what not to use on stainless steel toilet partitions.  This will save you money on after the fact repairs or possible costly replacements. 

Avoid any of the following at all times:

Never use any cleansers that contain bleach or chlorides

Never use muriatic acid, which is used to clean concrete

Never use water that has high iron content because the iron in the water will rust

Never leave soap on the partition because the soap may have chemicals that discolor the surface

Never use a cleaning pad made of metal, and avoid using cleaning agents stored in metal cans.

Never use any liquid that contains any kind of salt.

If you notice discoloration on your restroom partitions, remove it immediately.  You can use Revere Ware, Ajax, Bon Ami, or Goddard’s Stainless Steel Cleaner.  Use a nonmetallic pad like a Scotchbrite pad to apply the cleaner.  When you are done, rinse the panel thoroughly with water.   

If you find rust on your stainless steel toilet partitions, use the following cleaners based upon the type of finish you have.

Use naval jelly on bright and satin finishes.  It will tend to make the surface very shiny.  Be very careful because it is acid based, so apply it evenly all over the panel to make the sheen consistent.  Be sure to rinse all of it off. 

For a satin finish, use mild abrasives like BarKeepers Friend or Bone Ami and apply them with a soft wet cloth.  Rinse the partition thoroughly afterward and also dry it thoroughly. 

For grab bars that have a rough finish, use nonmetallic abrasive pads and a mild abrasive cleaner.  Scrub in the direction of the grain. 

Following these instructions will keep your stainless steel toilet partitions bright and rust free indefinitely.

Toilet Compartments

June 6th, 2011 by

Toilet compartments can go in any public restroom. Restroom visitors must have them privacy and comfort. Partitions must also aesthetically compliment interior architecture. Choosing the right divider design helps establish the decorative tone of the restroom interior.

Few public restrooms are built these days without toilet dividers. They are standard line items in new constructions. In more and more remodels, they are also being included thanks to new materials they are made with and new ways of mounting them.

Toilet compartments are made from powder coated metal, stainless steel, solid plastic, or phenolic.

Powder coated metal compartments are made from 100 percent recycled metal. Fire resistance is the biggest advantage they offer. They are also the least expensive to install and can be purchased in a wide range of designer colors that will compliment any new floor, ceiling, or wall.

Stainless steel partitions are expensive but well worth it if you have the money. They are renowned for resiliency, longevity, and cleanliness. Any medical who needs to create a sterile environment can count on stainless steel toilet compartments as a key component of sanitation. Also, these dividers will not rust, and they are resistant to the bacterial buildup.

In lower traffic areas with minimal vandalism, plastic dividers are the cheapest dividers. They resist water absorption, and this makes them ideal for hot, humid environments. They don’t absorb water, so if someone does try to write on them, the ink won’t set into the surface.

Phenolic toilet partitions work like super plastic dividers, but they are not made from plastic. Phenolic is a much tougher and very unique material out of a blend of compressed fibers and resin. It resists water, oil, and bacteria. It is easier to clean than plastic, can’t be damaged with chemicals, and is also excellent for sterile environments.

Any type of partition can be manufactured with ADA compliance in mind. Any indo of Toilet compartment can also be mounted in one of four different ways to accommodate the many different sizes and interior designs of public restrooms.

One way to mount them is to hang them from the ceiling. This conserves floor space in small restrooms by keeping the partition bottom off of the ground.

Floor mounted partitions are ideal for remodels where you can’t drill into the ceiling, or where it is too high up to reach.

You can also mount restroom dividers to both the floor and ceiling. This is easy and cheap to do for facilities on a budget.

If you want the best in vandal resistance mount, however, you need floor mounted partitions reinforced with an overhead brace. Toilet compartments you mount this way are almost as sturdy as a wall because the brace penetrating the ceiling runs parallel to the top of the compartment and reinforces its center of gravity.

Restroom Dividers Accommodate both People and Architecture

January 14th, 2011 by

Aside from plumbing, toilets, and lavatories, restroom dividers are the most important things that an organization can install in a commercial bathroom. Partitions define the emotional comfort level of the restroom as well. Aside from a clean, odor free environment, privacy is the most important consideration to most people when they visit a public facility.

Anyone who walks into a public restroom hopes that they can find in that environment the same level of privacy and dignity that they experience at home. If people feel uncomfortable about a particular restroom, they will feel uncomfortable about the building it is in, and they may never return.

This is obviously bad for businesses.

Because of this, almost all public restrooms now use some type of restroom dividers to create private stalls around toilets and urinals. These partitions are used in both private and public sector facilities. They are found in the world of commerce, transportation, administration, government, defense, recreation, and education.

The simple fact of the matter is that every one of these sectors is operated by humans who have to go the restroom at some point in time during the day. Organizations that invest in bathroom partitions see to it that people are appropriately accommodated with the privacy they expect.

Another very important fact is that different buildings have different interior architecture in their restrooms. These interiors must be accommodated as well. Restroom dividers are consequently manufactured in a manner that allows them to be mounted in four different ways.

Ceiling hung restroom partitions attach only to the ceiling and stop before they reach the floor. They are used to conserve floor space in very small restrooms.

Floor mounted partitions are used in remodels where either the ceiling cannot be penetrate, or it cannot be feasibly reached due to height.

The most vandal resistant and sturdy partition walls are floor mounted at the bottom and braced at the ceiling. The brace not only penetrates the ceiling but runs back toward the wall parallel to the top of the partition.

Floor and ceiling hung partitions are not quite as rugged as overhead braced equivalents, but they come close enough. They are also cost effective, easier to install, and well able to handle heavy traffic.

In addition to the four mounting styles, there are also four primary materials that are used to manufacture restroom dividers.

Partitions are made from powder coated metal, stainless steel, solid plastic, or phenolic.

Powder coated partitions are fireproof and made from 100 percent recycled metal content. Many designer colors are available, and they are the least expensive and least difficult dividers to install.

Stainless steel partitions are more expensive of course. That is because they are much more attractive and hygienic. They are the favored restroom dividers of the health care industry for this reason. Obviously as well, they are super vandal resistant.

Plastic is low maintenance and very inexpensive. It is also very vandal resistant and particularly resistant to graffiti. This is because it is water resistant and does not absorb moisture from pens or markers. This also makes plastic ideal for hot, humid climates.

Phenolic restroom partitions behave much like plastic. However, in addition to being water resistant, they are oil and bacteria resistant too. This makes them more impervious to chemical damage and more hygienic for health conscious environments that may not be able to afford stainless steel. They can be used for showers partitions, and they are easy to clean.

Restroom dividers can be customized to accommodate the dimensions and special needs of individual restroom facilities. ADA compliant units are available so full handicapped accessibility is guaranteed in the restroom.
