If your facility has a designated shower area and locker room, there are a few steps that you need to take to ensure that the area is protected from the elements. You also want to be sure that you’re using the best materials to help reduce your maintenance costs and the man hours spent cleaning and servicing your shower stalls. When it comes to picking the right shower stalls, you’ll need to know what to look for in order to get the best results.

Here’s some of the most common questions about shower stalls.

How Can I Improve Privacy for the Shower Stall Occupants?

Most people can feel pretty vulnerable in the shower, especially if there are several other people showering in the same area. There are several different styles of shower stalls, including open partitions, which provide the most exposure. Enclosed shower stalls seem to be the preferred model, but there are unavoidable sightlines in the door gap or through the bottom of the stall sometimes. The best way to improve privacy in the shower area is by utilizing a material that leaves no sightlines and offers an enclosed and secure experience for the occupant.

How Can I Combat the Growth of Mold and Mildew?

Constantly scrubbing away mold in your shower stalls may seem like an uphill battle because everything is working against you. Mold and mildew thrive in moist environments. Since shower stalls constantly have water flowing through them, the idea of tackling the mold may seem daunting. However, this could be because of the materials you’re using for your shower stall. Finding the right materials can help reduce the time spent cleaning by resisting mold growth while standing up to the constant exposure to moisture and humidity.

Why Do I Have to Replace My Shower Stalls?

Shower stalls can take a beating over time. They can easily become scratched and dented after just a few uses. You’ll want to keep your shower stalls in great condition and lasting as long as possible. However, if their interior becomes infested with mold, replacing the shower stall is a must. When it’s time for a replacement, you’ll want to find a material that can last a long time in the harsh shower elements and can forgo the costly replacement.

Is There a Way that I Can Reduce My Shower Stall Maintenance Costs?

Considering the elements that can have a negative effect on your shower stalls, you don’t want to forego maintenance because it could lead to detrimental health issues for your occupants. However, you can replace your shower stalls with a more durable material that can withstand the moisture and humidity.

HDPE solid plastic is a great option for your shower stalls because it’s durable, solid, and dent- and scratch-resistant. Best of all, though, is that HDPE solid plastic is nonabsorbent. It can actually resist the growth of mold, which can help save you costs when it’s time for maintenance because these stalls can be power washed and steamed cleaned.
