“Safety First” Rules with Scranton Products® Partitions at Trendy, New England Middle School
New England, MA
With the goal of maintaining its highly-prestigious New England status on everything from housing costs to school quality and job growth, one of the “Best Places to Live” in the U.S. recently approved a multi-milliondollar referendum dedicated to improving the safety, comfort and educational experience of its entire student population. Among others, this included resolving the overcrowding, ADA accessibility and modern learning needs at all six of its public schools.
The most recent example of these efforts took place when the city’s middle school created a dozen gender-neutral changing rooms and upgraded several of its restrooms and locker rooms with Scranton Products Hiny Hiders® Partitions.
“We’ve worked with Scranton Products for the past 10 years to provide schools, churches and related institutions with extremely durable, long-lasting restroom partitions,” explained Linda Thorp of Wholesale Distribution in Mashpee, MA. “Our clients love the HDPE material since they don’t rust and are easier to clean and maintain than metal partitions. Plus, Scranton Products always works with us to make the sale by providing the colors and designs needed to match most designs and structural aspirations.”
She added “Hiny Hiders Partitions fit perfectly with the needs of the middle school. Floor-mounted with continuous, aluminum brackets, the partitions easily met the local ADA-compliance regulations, while providing the desired level of privacy.”
About Hiny Hiders®
A leading provider of unique and attractive restroom partitions for the past 30 years, Scranton Products offers a variety of HDPE products in a wide range of colors and textures. With a new world view of health and safety, Scranton Products Hiny Hiders Partitions are also naturally germ-resistant* and easy to clean. Unlike metal partitions which are subject to rust and can harbor germs, Hiny Hiders Partitions offer superior resistance to impact, graffiti, corrosion, mildew, and moisture.
Since their introduction, Hiny Hiders Partitions have also become increasingly popular in the institutional marketplace due to their ability to create unique, attractive interior spaces in floor mounted overhead-braced, ceiling-hung or floor-to-ceiling configurations. Another benefit of their solid HDPE plastic material is the ability to reduce regular maintenance and long-term replacement costs given that general soiling can be easily removed with mild cleaner and water.
“We’re presently converting all of the changing and restroom stalls within our district from traditional metal to Hiny Hiders Partitions,” said one school representative. “They look great, are easy to clean and wear exceptionally well in tough environments that include heavily-chlorinated pool areas. Scranton Products is also always there to work with us no matter the stall dimensions and/or privacy needs. They’re a great partner who is really helping the entire school district achieve our next wave of safety and comfort goals.”
