Reclaiming Privacy in Bathrooms through New Partitions

Privacy is a crucial element to the experience of using a public restroom or commercial bathroom. This is especially true if the restroom serves multiple occupants at a time. Given the close quarters, it’s important to strive for absolute privacy with your facility’s restroom. One way that you can improve the privacy in your restrooms is through new partitions that offer more comfort and security to the occupants.

The Problem with Your Current Toilet Partitions

Restroom partitions serve a very simple but important purpose: privacy. They divide each toilet to provide a safe and confidential experience for each individual. However, some partitions lack the amount of privacy that one would like while going to the bathroom.

The main drawbacks to toilet partitions are their imperfections. There are design flaws like the door hinges, which lock and secure the stall, but they leave a line of sight that can make any occupant feel uncomfortable or exposed. There’s also a noticeable lack of privacy with the exposed bottom, which doesn’t hide an occupant’s feet. The top of the partitions also leave room for exposure and discomfort, especially if there’s a taller-than-average occupant in the next stall.

How to Improve the Privacy in Your Facility’s Restroom

There are a few ways that you can make the experience of going to the bathroom a little more comfortable for the occupants. However, the best way is by installing new partitions that offer more security and privacy, as well as customizable options to reduce any exposed areas or sightlines. You’ll also want to consider using strong and durable material to ensure that these new partitions will last.

The Types of Partitions that Can Improve Bathroom Privacy

HDPE plastic is one of the best materials that you can use for partitions in your facility’s restroom. Not only is this material durable and impact resistant, but it can actually withstand the moisture and humidity that’s prevalent in bathrooms, which leads to mold growth and the spread of bacteria. These sustainable and recyclable partitions are also guaranteed to last up to 25 years and require little maintenance.
