In the attempt to save wall space, many retail bathrooms are 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.
