“What’s blocking? Why do I need it?”

Initially, toilet partitions might seem confusing. While we do our best to put customers at ease, this viewpoint is understandable. Despite being in the vast majority of restrooms, the general public rarely considers partitions …probably because they are practical necessities. They have no place in residential construction, so many DIYers and professional contractors are also unfamiliar with bathroom stalls. As with most products, toilet partitions come in many varieties. Understanding the differences and grasping the jargon can be a daunting task.

Toilet partitions are not complicated, however.

They serve a single central purpose: to provide reasonable amounts of privacy to an individual using a toilet. It is easy to tell an effective partition system apart from one badly designed, broken down, or poorly maintained. No specialized knowledge is required. After all, restroom partitions are a familiar sight with few moving parts. What you see is what you get! The concept of in-wall blocking typifies the “uncomplicated, but potentially confusing” nature of toilet partitions.

Measurements & Drawings – What Do We Look For?

To provide an accurate quote, we need a few pieces of information about the bathroom where you plan to install the toilet partitions. Typically, we require the following:

  • Layout Style (and Position in the Room)
  • Number of Stalls
  • Overall Layout Width
  • Each Stall’s Width
  • Stall Depth
  • Door Swings

Also, we must know what material you’d like quoted and the street address where the materials will be delivered.

To shoppers unfamiliar with building materials – or inexperienced with measurement – this may seem daunting. In reality, the information is easily obtained and conveyed accurately. In this post, we’ll explain how to collect this information and how to send it to us. Read on to learn how simple the process is!

Toilet Partitions by the Numbers: Height

“Door/Panel Height” and “Height Above Finished Floor” describe, in concrete terms, the level of privacy a toilet partition system provides. Generally speaking, a bathroom stall’s door and side panels will be the same height and have the same elevation above the finished floor. In certain privacy-oriented partition systems, panels can span the entire distance from the ceiling to the floor with no gaps. Standard stall panels, on the other hand, can be as short as 55″ tall, positioned 14″ above the finished floor. In the accompanying image, A is the panel height. B is the distance above the finished floor.

The Right Tools for the Job

Partition Plus not only furnishes bathroom stalls (and many other necessary restroom products), but we also install these items if desired. Many of our online customers, especially those purchasing smaller bathroom partition configurations (just one or two stalls), opt to install their partitions themselves.

This is perfectly reasonable, given a few basic conditions. 1) DIY installers should have some familiarity with building materials. 2) An assistant should be available to help with larger components before and during installation. 3) Plenty of time should be left for the project. 4) Proper tools must be gathered before beginning work. Installation requires more than household hand tools.

Make sure you have the necessary tools on hand so your finished bathroom stalls look like a masterpiece. Read on for a list of essentials!
