Is It Time to Replace Your Bathroom Stall?
Last updated on October 29th, 2019 at 11:37 am
Do you own or manage a commercial space? Do you oversee a location that has public restrooms, like a ballpark? If so, you may be wondering how you can tell if it is time to replace your bathroom stalls. While some of the signs that it’s time to get new bathroom partitions are obvious, others are a bit more subtle. Let’s look at some signs that indicate you should replace your bathroom partitions individually.
Lack of Access
It’s true that one of the reasons you have partitions in your employee or public bathrooms is to keep prying eyes and unwanted visitors out of an occupied toilet compartment. While that’s the case, a lot of modern partitions don’t run from the ceiling all the way to the floor. Full-length partitions are not only difficult and time-consuming to install, but they can also pose a threat to the safety of the people who use your restrooms.
One of the reasons many restroom partitions don’t reach the floor is to make it obvious if someone loses consciousness while using a toilet compartment. Another reason is to grant immediate access to emergency personnel. If a partition runs floor to ceiling, it may be hours before someone notices that a person has encountered a problem in the restroom. Even after the individual is discovered, emergency personnel may lose valuable time by having to dismantle or break through a door to help them.
If your current layout won’t grant immediate access to emergency personnel if someone gets hurt or sick in your restroom, it’s time to replace your toilet partitions.
Even high-quality partitions that are made to last will show signs of wear and tear over time. While some wear is expected, obvious damage can make your bathroom visually unappealing. It can also give the impression that the space is unsafe or that you don’t care about it.
What kind of damage should you inspect your partitions for? Graffiti, water damage, holes, cracks, broken locks, missing handles and partitions that aren’t secure are just a few of the things you should be on the lookout for.
When it comes to bathroom partition replacement, you also need to consider the appearance of your bathroom stalls beyond whether they have any visible damage. When you’re trying to determine if you should replace your bathroom stalls, you also need to think about the aesthetic of your restroom. If your current stalls are giving your bathroom a dated look and feel or preventing your washroom from sharing the aesthetic of the rest of your property, it might be time to replace them.
