What To Consider When Selecting A Commercial Bathroom Partition

Choosing the right commercial bathroom partition is a critical decision for contractors and building administrators. The partitions serve a crucial security function in bathrooms and can add extra aesthetic value to the space. A poor choice can detract from either function or both simultaneously.

Hence the team at Construct- Innovative Construction Solutions Corp. would like you to know exactly what you should consider when choosing a commercial bathroom partition.


Commercial bathroom partitions will be placed in areas that ensure that they see quite a bit of wear and tear. In airports, shopping malls, gyms, and the like, there is a lot of potential for the partitions to receive some form of physical trauma.

As such, the partitions in your office building bathroom or wherever need to have the resiliency to endure the rigours of their placement and still provide the required functions. Your chosen partition material needs the strength to resist…

  • Moisture and water damage
  • Wear and tear from motions and impacts
  • Scratches and abrasions
  • Vandalism like graffiti, etc.


The partition’s strength is just one aspect. Its ability to last long after its installation in a brand-new bathroom or during the remodelling of a commercial bathroom is required. 

Your commercial bathroom partition needs longevity to maintain its functionality and still provide aesthetically pleasing value.

Popular material choices for durable bathroom partitions include stainless steel, solid plastic, and phenolic HPL.


The financial impact of your commercial bathroom partitions is always significant and the costs of the various materials used range widely. Hence, you should carefully consider your available options before making a purchase.

The purchase point of materials like solid plastic and powder-coated steel is lower than most of the other available options. However, these materials will require frequent maintenance, and maybe some replacements over the years, to stay useful. This can increase the cost long term. Phenolic HPL panels are known for their strength and durability but they require a higher initial cost to purchase.

Design Aesthetics

Commercial bathroom partitions can add to the visuals of the space in a significant way. They are immediately visible upon entering the bathroom so their appearance is crucial.

Some materials allow for more choices concerning texture, colour, and other factors that influence the bathroom’s aesthetics. Stainless steel and powder-coated steel typically offer a limited range of colours whereas the options afforded by phenolic HPL and solid plastic are numerous.

Regulatory Compliance

When building or remodelling commercial bathrooms, there is specific legislation by bodies like CCOHS that places specific requirements in place. Your commercial bathroom partitions have to meet those requirements to avoid running foul of the law.

Your specific jurisdiction will influence the dimensions of your bathroom partitions and even influence how to install said partitions.
