XPB Locker Supply carries an extensive inventory of restroom stalls with the intent to provide today’s architects and contractors with everything necessary for restroom interior design.
A wide range of material builds, colors, and mounting styles makes it possible to accommodate restrooms of all sizes in buildings ranging from schools, government offices, restaurants, country clubs, malls, office buildings, banks, and churches.
The materials used to manufacture restroom partitions ensure that they will last for many years, if not for many decades.
Once installed, the intention is to maintain them with as little effort as possible.
Aside from normal wear and tear, all toilet compartments must be impervious to vandal resistance. In certain environments, a restroom stall must also be hygienic to maintain as sterile of an environment as possible. We see this frequently in the health care industry, where antibacterial surfaces are mandated in patient restrooms.
We are well aware that cost effectiveness is a major consideration for many organizations.
In these cases, the best materials may not be affordable. Then again, the most durable materials may not be required, either. Some environments are less prone to vandalism. They do not see much traffic and consequently do not suffer as much wear and tear. Normal environments do not require the super health consciousness of a doctor’s office.
Considerations of vandal resistance, moisture resistance, budget, color, mounting, and level of maintenance are balanced to assist the contractor in finding the most suitable solution.
If cost effectiveness is the main concern, baked enamel restroom stalls are the best choice.
They are constructed around a two-piece interlocking panel that makes them strong and moisture resistant. This prevents panel rust-out. Because of their longevity and low cost, baked enamel partitions are the dividers most commonly chosen by smaller office buildings, schools, restaurants, malls, and factories on a budget.
Plastic laminate partitions are the next least expensive partition option that architects can install.
Larger offices, movie theaters, manufacturing facilities, high-end restaurants, and retailers often use plastic partitions because they block the absorption of water and are therefore resistant to graffiti from markers and pens.
The solid phenolic restroom stall is a considerable step up in quality and price from both baked enamel and plastic laminate.
Phenolic is a resin-impregnated material that is pressurized, heated, compressed, and covered by a decorative melamine face. This creates a surface area that is both water resistant and impact resistant. There is no risk of delamination because there is no core. Phenolic is contiguous throughout. It is ideal for any hot, humid environment prone to vandalism. It is often used in shower stalls, locker rooms, stadiums, roadside parks, and schools.
Stainless steel toilet partitions are made for sanitary environment, heavy traffic areas, and high-end retail facilities.
Stainless steel has a highly aesthetic quality complimentary to superior interior design work. It is also bacteria resistant, which is why it is used so much in medical facility restrooms. It is more expensive, but worth the investment.
The most powerful of any restroom stall is fusion granite. It is stain and scratch resistant. It can look like either granite or be colored to imitate stainless steel.
Fusion granite partitions are very expensive and normally sold to ultra high-end casinos, art galleries, museums, five-star resorts, famous restaurants, and elite spas. It is considered the very best of materials and offers the least amount of maintenance due to its rugged constitution.
