What are the Common Toilet Partition Materials?

Commercial Restroom Solutions

A toilet partition is an enclosure that separates commercial toilet cubicles to maintain its users’ privacy. Looking for the right toilet partition can be challenging as they come in various shapes, sizes, and most importantly, materials. Commercial toilet cubicle providers such as Duraplan have noted the importance of choosing materials that can withstand the rigours of commercial toilets.

Here is a quick guide on the most common toilet partition variants, to help you choose the right one.

Powder-Coated Steel

Powder-coated steel is the most economical material used for toilet partitions. Most property owners prefer it because of its nice finish and affordability. It is also safe and eco-friendly, as the powder coating process does not produce any emissions. The main disadvantage is that colour choices tend to be somewhat limited.

Plastic Laminate

Plastic laminate is comprised of a thin layer of laminate glued to a particle board substrate. It is slightly more expensive than powder-coated steel. The material is highly customisable, with a wide range of colour and design choices available such as granite, wood grains, marble and solid patterns.

Plastic laminate cannot be used in wet or humid areas such as the shower room, as the humidity and water can damage it.

HDPE Solid Plastic

HDPE solid plastic is a highly durable material which makes it ideal for restroom areas with heavy foot traffic such as public, transportation facilities, and school restrooms. It is slightly more expensive than most other types of materials, but it can maintain its strength for far longer.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the most recommended material, but it is also the most expensive. It is more suitable for high-end environments as it lends a luxurious feel to most cubicles. It is also highly durable and can withstand frequent impact. So if you can afford it, go for stainless steel.
