Toilet Enclosure

By Patricia Holland

A toilet enclosure is created by installing two toilet partitions around either side of the toilet and sealing off the compartment with a hinged door. This very basic design can then be expanded and customized to any restroom interior. Thanks to the range of options in colors, materials used to make partitions, and the many ways to install partitions, contractors can create private space for any restroom user without wasting space, time, or money in the process.

A toilet enclosure can be built out of partitions made from several different types of materials. On our site, you will find choices in baked enamel steel, stainless steel, plastic laminate, solid Phenolic, and Bradleys proprietary Bradmar solid plastic. Solid plastic is by far the most resilient of surfaces. It is made from a contiguous, colored piece of plastic that does not require painting or repainting. It is vandal resistant and completely moisture resistant, making it the easiest of all materials to clean. It is admittedly, however, the most expensive of the five choices.

When cost is a major determining factor in bidding a contract, it may be necessary to consider alternatives to solid plastic. Baked enameled steel is the most affordable of these alternatives. It has proven itself to be more than adequate in applications ranging from church restroom design to franchise restaurant design. While it ranks rather low in vandal resistance, a baked enamel toilet enclosure will remain in good condition for years in any environment with low traffic or moderate traffic with minimal risk of abuse. Plastic laminate is a bit more expensive but it is also more durable. It can handle heavier traffic, and the plastic outer coating is easy to clean. Stainless steel is standard in the medical care industry, as well as some restaurants and factory restrooms. Stainless steel is a fine, attractive material that is highly durable, moisture resistant, and super hygienic.

Partitions further vary according to the way they are mounted. This pertains specifically to how the dividers are installed to create a toilet enclosure. Restroom dividers can be mounted to the floor, hung from the ceiling, mounted to both the floor and ceiling, or they can be mounted to the floor and braced with a head rail attached to the rear wall. These four configuration options allow contractors to create restroom floor plans in any size room. The depth of a concrete floor, the height of the ceiling, and the amount of clearance necessary in and around partitions are all factors that play a role in how stalls can be designed within existing space. Bradley restroom partitions are among the finest in the world, if not the very finest in the world, when it comes to giving contractors more opportunities to adapt restroom stall design to the actual space they have available without compromising the integrity of the design.

Based on this, and on the availability of a number of partition components and accessories that are used to create a toilet enclosure, a restroom stall can be designed for ADA compliance, complete site free privacy, and full open floor access to cleaning crews. The size of the stall can be customized to single user, two-user, or large multi-user configurations. Stalls can be placed in restrooms with built-in showers, lockers, and wash fountains, or they can be standalone privacy compartments for the very smallest of possible spaces.
