Typical Bathroom Partition Dimensions
Last updated on October 29th, 2018 at 04:21 pm
If you’re like a lot of people, you might not give too much thought to bathroom partitions or their dimensions. If you don’t manage a commercial business or a space that has public restrooms, why would you think about toilet partition dimensions anyway?
If you do run a business or a space that has public bathrooms, like a park, it’s important for you to be familiar with commercial toilet stall dimensions. Knowing the appropriate dimensions is the only way you can ensure people can use your restroom stalls comfortably and safety. It’s also the only way you can make sure your bathroom stalls are in compliance with ADA requirements.
You need to understand that typical bathroom partition dimensions may not always be sufficient for a given space. Not every bathroom has the same amount of space or physical features. For these reasons, some property managers may have to abandon the typical toilet partition height, width and depth in favor of customized bathroom partition dimensions. Whether you’re going with standard dimensions or custom measurements, it’s vital for you to ensure that the stalls you’re going to create comply with local, state and federal requirements.
Common Dimensions for Bathroom Partitions
Precise measurements are key when you’re going to order partitions for a commercial or public bathroom. If you order partitions that aren’t the right size, you might think you can simply cut them to fit in the field. This process is not only difficult to do but also may prove impossible unless the partitions are plastic. When you cut a partition, you run the very possible risk of rendering it useless because of resulting damage.
While the numbers may vary in accordance with the unique characteristics of your bathroom space, a standard toilet stall is 36 inches wide and 60 inches deep. The minimum depth for a partition stall is 48 inches, but the depth can be as much as 78 inches if necessary.
To satisfy ADA requirements, all newly constructed square restroom stalls must have doors that swing outward, with no more than four inches from the diagonal corner to the toilet. The toilet must be between 16 inches and 18 inches center from the closest wall or partition. ADA-compliant compartments must be at least 60 inches wide and 59 inches deep on the inside. They also need a 36-inch or 34-inch door that a wheelchair can pass through.
Bathroom compartments that grant ambulatory access must be at least 36 inches wide. They must also have a handicap door that’s typically 34 inches.
