Washroom partitions are manufactured from a variety of materials designed to withstand vandalism, moisture, and corrosion.
Some are very cost effective in order to accommodate organizations on limited budgets. Others resist bacterial buildup so that hygienic environments can be maintained.
All restroom stalls are designed to last for many years and to require a lower level of maintenance than other restroom fixtures. Obviously, the more expensive, durable dividers are the ones that can last for decades and require little, if any, maintenance at all.
The very nature of some of these materials contributes a high end aesthetic to restrooms in high-end establishments.
The huge spectrum of available colors also makes it possible to match any material, regardless of cost, to any size or type of restroom—new or remodel.
XPB Locker Supply carries all of these washroom partition options in our inventory.
Our mission is to provide today’s architect with everything necessary for new restroom construction.
We are also equally committed to building contractors responsible for remodeling existing restrooms on tight budgets under the most challenging of services.
Our team constantly labors to help professionals find solutions for restrooms in school buildings, government headquarters, military bases, restaurants, country clubs, shopping centers, offices, multi-story bank buildings, and churches both small and large.
When choosing a particular type of toilet partition, the two most practical considerations are resistance to normal wear and tear and to any potential for vandalism.
Certain requirements also require other features, such as corrosion resistance. Contractors remodeling restrooms along the hot, humid Gulf Coast must take this into consideration. Hygiene is a major concern in health care facilities, so toilet dividers here must be resistant to the growth of bacteria. Still other buildings, due to the sophisticated level of lifestyle to which they carry, must have partitions that look every bit as attractive as they actually work.
The following represents a general breakdown of material options, features, advantages, benefits, and applications.
Baked enamel washroom partitions are the least expensive option.
They are built around two-piece panels that interlock for moisture resistance. They are more than adequate to meet the needs of smaller offices, rural schools, small cafes, stores, and small manufacturing plants.
Plastic laminate partitions are one step up in quality and price from baked enamel.
They block water absorption, so it is easy to wipe them clean of graffiti from markers or pens. In mid-sized office buildings, movie theaters, factories, and restaurants, plastic toilet dividers are often the favored choice because they are tough enough to last, but they are an affordable line item.
Solid phenolic restroom compartments are considerably higher in quality and price than plastic.
Phenolic is a contiguous, multi-layered, resin-impregnated material. It is not built around a core, so there is no risk of delamination. It is manufactured under high pressure, heat, and compression. Then, it is covered by a decorative melamine face. It resists heat, humidity, and vandalism. It can also serve as shower stalls, be used in locker rooms, and is ideal for restrooms in athletic facilities and park areas.
Stainless steel washroom partitions are very aesthetic and complement superior interior design work.
They are also bacteria resistant, which is why they are used so often in the restrooms in doctor’s offices. It is more expensive than other material, but well worth the investment for those who need these additional features.
The most sophisticated material of any is fusion granite.
It resists staining and scratching because it is made from stone. This is the favored washroom partition to use in five-star restaurants, museums, casinos, and the best hotels. It is exceptionally high-end.
XPB Locker Supply has professionals on staff that can help the architect choose the very best material for the project within the parameters of available budget.
