Urinal partitions are used to screen a room and to create privacy between separate urinals and toilets. They do not absorb moisture, which makes them rust resistant and vandal resistant. They are easy to clean, and they will last for many years.
Screens are made of several different types of materials. Baked enamel, solid plastic, plastic laminate, stainless steel represent some of the more popular materials. Many styles and sizes are available to match any interior architecture. There are also many colors to match any interior design.
Choosing the right material depends on calculating several factors.
Front end cost is a factor for organizations on a budget. While some materials may not be as impervious to rust and bacteria as stainless steel, it makes sense to pay for something affordable that is going to get the job done anyway is often the best way for organizations on a budget to spend money.
Climate is another thing to consider. In the Gulf Coast area, heat and humidity run high for much of the year. Investment in any type of structure, including something as simple and necessary as a urinal partition, must factor in the need to protect the investment from rust. Budget allocations should be made to find the most moisture resistant material build to protect individual units from deterioration.
Vandalism is a third consideration to factor into a decision on material build. For some strange reason, humans developed this strange proclivity to write on restroom walls. If a partition of any size or material stands between them and the wall, they write on that. The things that people write on partitions often cause other people who are using partitions to either cringe or become unhinged. This is never good for business.
People are still going to write strange things on partitions, however, so there is no stopping the act of vandalism. What we can stop is the results of vandalism. We want to use urinal partitions that will not absorb the moisture in ink and paint. This causes the ink or paint to reside near the surface of the material. If it stays only on the surface, it can easily be wiped off.
Stainless steel is the most vandal resistant material on the market. When it is cleaned, it does not require resurfacing or repainting. This is because it has an attractive satin sheen that maintains its own aesthetic.
Stainless is so moisture resistant that germs find it hard to live on their surface. It is considered the most hygienic of all urinal partition materials. This is why test labs, clinics, and hospitals many times will spend the money to have stainless steel in order to maintain the most sanitary conditions possible.
Phenolic is the next best thing to stainless steel. Phenolic will resists moisture, bacteria, and oil. It is almost as hard to damage as stainless steel.
Plastic and baked enamel also feature a certain amount of moisture resistance. In many places where traffic is low, or places where vandalism is very unlikely, these more affordable urinal partitions will do just fine for organization such as churches, small museums, and private foundation with selective membership.
In terms of colors, there are plenty to choose from in every partition style. Basic colors are available for simple interiors that need only minimal decoration. Larger facilities with a clear, deliberate intent for a noticeable level of style and comfort can be complimented with a wide range of special colors and custom colors.
