Toilet partitions are just one of several product areas in which Partition Plus regularly works. On this website, we also sell washroom accessories, lockers, and Hawa sliding door hardware. But did you know, we can easily quote a range of other building materials and Division 10 products?

Recently, we worked with a customer whose project called not only for toilet partitions and Division 10 items but also for the creation of a large, secure storage area. Our years of experience with building materials enabled us to recommend a suitable product for the project space, despite secure storage products being outside our core offerings. In this particular instance, we recommended a wire mesh partition solution from SpaceGuard Products’ BeastWire brand.

High Privacy Partitions: Two Sides of the Story

Photograph of a private sign.

There is a predominant trend towards higher privacy toilet partitions. This trend is nothing new. For many years, end users complained about big gaps between doors and pilasters, as well as the height of panels off the floor. Slowly, builders and facility operators began purchasing bathroom stalls with no-sightline hardware and higher panels and doors (that reduce the potential for seeing above and below toilet stalls). An overseas privacy focus led to the emergence of a “European style” partition that is synonymous with increased privacy. Now matters have reached critical mass, and there is an expectation for heightened privacy of some sort on every partition project. But, there are two sides to this story. As with any choice, there are some (small) negatives associated with high privacy toilet partitions.

Plan for the Worst, Hope for the Best

The expression in week’s blog title should come as no surprise to any seasoned facility manager. After all, it applies exceptionally well to the case of outfitting and operating shared use spaces – especially public restrooms. We at Partition Plus have seen it demonstrated tens of dozens of times. It is an unfortunate reality that most human beings don’t treat shared resources as carefully as private resources. Accepting this is sometimes difficult, as we would all like to save the money, time, and worry associated with planning for others’ carelessness.

Assuming you accept this as truth, how should you respond? As it relates to bathroom planning and toilet partitions, the best course of action is to choose a more robust material when outfitting your restroom. Read on for an example and explanation.

Looking for Wooden Stalls? Consider Phenolic or Laminate

Plastic laminate and phenolic stalls are a great alternative to expensive wood partitions. Laminate and phenolic are available in a range of imitation wood patterns. It is possible to stain wood in pine, oak, or walnut tones with relative ease. But achieving ebony, bamboo, or ash colorations could require significant amounts of time and money. Where laminate and phenolic are concerned, exotic wood finishes are typically no more expensive than standard colors.
