Choosing commercial toilet partitions is easy when you follow a few simple guidelines. XPB Locker makes this process not only easy, but also profitable for installers and architects looking to construct restroom facilities that are appealing, code compliant, and low-cost when it comes to ongoing maintenance. We have a variety of materials and color selections to accommodate any style building restroom in environments ranging from public parks to downtown, Class A office buildings in major American cities.
How important are aesthetics?
Many office buildings are constructed to reflect the corporate cultures of their tenant companies. High end buildings with a definitively upscale look are constructed to attract Fortune 1000,500, and 100 companies to their floors. If your team oversees building such a facility, consider installing stainless steel commercial toilet partitions. Stainless steel has both an elegant appearance and a classic look, and it blends with a variety of design styles ranging from the traditional to the ultra-contemporary.
XPB Lockers carries several lines of stainless steel commercial toilet partitions. Choose from a variety of gauges and brushed steel patterns to create the desired, higher aesthetic that your clients expect for their office tower.
How many users do you anticipate?
The number of daily restroom users is very important factor in choosing commercial toilet partitions. The higher the daily count of users, the more wear and tear will be placed on doors, pilasters, and panels. In very high traffic environments, even normal usage can deteriorate less expensive restroom panels and doors. Stronger substances, such as solid plastic and solid phenolic, are your best bets for lasting performance in airport, bus terminal, transit center, and theme park restrooms.
XPB Locker has several unique lines of solid plastic partitions and phenolic partitions that have performed with exceptional reliability in several case studies involving high traffic public restroom environments.
If you are building a restroom for a small church, office park, retail center, or even rural public school, you can use less expensive powder coated commercial toilet partitions. Powder coating lasts far longer than paint, and in a low or medium traffic restroom environment you can expect your panels and doors to last for many years if properly cleaned and maintained.
What is your risk of vandalism?
There is no one particular type of restroom that is targeted by vandalism. Everything from office buildings to schools and public transit centers can be a target of miscreants who take delight in the destruction of property, or who consider it funny to deface panels and toilet stall doors. Vandalism tends to be more related to the community surrounding a facility than the actual facility itself. It is important to protect your client’s investment by taking the risk of deliberate damage into account before you finalize your choice of commercial toilet partitions.
The best way to do this is to check the restrooms in surrounding buildings for graffiti, dents, and scratches in stall panels and doors. If you see multiple instances of vandalism, recommend to your client that they invest in solid phenolic commercial toilet partitions. While on the higher end of the cost spectrum, phenolic is the hardest material that partitions are made from and is the most vandal resistant of any bathroom stall options you can choose.
