Scranton Products HDPE plastic is a highly durable material that actually resists dents, scratches, corrosion, graffiti, and mildew. HDPE will also never rust or become weak in its composition. The facts speak for themselves. If you’re serious about investing in a worry-free product that’ll save you time and money, Scranton Products HDPE is the smart choice for you.
Get Serious About Materials
There are many choices when selecting a material for your bathroom partitions. Before making a decision, take a closer look at what’s inside. With the exception of Scranton Products solid plastic HDPE, all of the cores below are vulnerable to mold growth.
Over time, the mold can spread all throughout the interior of the stall or partition, which would require costly maintenance or even a full-on replacement. Solid plastic HDPE won’t absorb moisture, resists mold and mildew, and is warranted for 25 years. That’s a quarter of a century without having to worry about replacing your bathroom materials.

Get Serious About Health
Most stall and partition materials are susceptible to mold growth, due to the constant presence of humidity and moisture in the bathroom. Over time, as mold begins to thrive on the inside of the material, the air quality will drop dramatically, which can be hazardous to the health of your facility’s occupants. If mold is present in your stalls and partitions, saving the material may be out of the question.

Because they never need painting, Hiny Hiders HDPE partitions deliver no VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions that could prove harmful to the air in your facility. Hiny Hiders, Eclipse and Aria partitions are GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certified, so you can rest easy knowing that these partitions won’t chip away at your facility’s air quality or result in any respiratory health issues.

Get Serious About Maintenance
Due to the long lasting durability offered by Hiny Hiders partitions and stalls, maintenance is relatively easy. While most materials, such as metal, plastic laminate, and phenolic core, require repetitive maintenance, HDPE actually stays in great shape over the years. The only type of actual maintenance you’ll need to perform is a simple wipe to get rid of dirt or graffiti.
Other than a quick exterior clean, you won’t have to bust out the tool belt or take the partitions apart. The solid plastic construction remains impervious to the inevitable wear and tear that normally has a field day with other materials. You also don’t have to risk VOC emissions with repainting the Hiny Hiders because of their solid color and strong exterior.
Is it time to start rethinking your current stalls and partitions? HDPE is a great choice that not only provides an aesthetically pleasing partition, but also requires low upkeep and maintenance.
