Toilet Partitions – What Are They?

Toilet partitions are found in nearly every commercial bathroom, making them one of the top Division 10 products. When selecting the right toilet partition for your commercial project, the best place to start is with a basic understanding of the product and your options. 

What are Toilet Partitions?

Toilet partitions, also commonly referred to as stalls, are enclosures that provide privacy for individuals, typically in public restrooms. While they are primarily used in bathrooms, they are often installed in other commercial buildings, such as gyms and stores, to create multiple changing areas. There are many options, including materials, configurations, privacy levels, and components. 

Toilet Partition Materials

Toilet partitions are made of a variety of materials that differ in aesthetics and longevity. The area where the partition will be installed impacts the material that should be used. 

Common materials offered include:

  • Plastic Laminate
  • Solid Plastic
  • Phenolic Core
  • Baked Enamel 
  • Stainless Steel
  • Solid Surface 

Toilet Partition Configuration

Toilet partitions come in four configurations, often referred to as mounting styles, which offer different benefits. 

Configuration options include: 

  • Floor Mount Overhead-Braced: This sturdy option is the most common configuration and easy to install. 
  • Floor Mount: This option is well-suited for spaces with low ceilings. 
  • Floor-to-Ceiling: This mounting style requires ceiling reinforcement but is the strongest. 
  • Ceiling-Hung: A more expensive option that also requires ceiling reinforcement; however, this option is low-maintenance and protects your floors. 

Toilet Partition Components

Toilet partitions are composed of different parts that vary based on their configuration. These components include:

  • Hinges
  • Latches
  • Brackets
  • Headrails
  • Fasteners
  • Doors
  • Panels 

Due to normal wear and tear, parts will need to be repaired or replaced over time.
