TOILET PARTITION STYLES
The most popular of the less expensive styles of toilet partitions is the floor mounted overhead braced. It provides a much stronger support than floor mounted only. Typical applications for this style of bathroom partitions are found in pool houses, restaurants, stores and office buildings.
Ideal for Low Ceiling
Floor mounted only bathroom partitions are often preferred in many applications since they are flush across the top with pilasters, doors and panels all at the same height. Floor mounted restroom partitions require 3/8" to 5/8" bolts in the floor to provide stability. Not recommended on toilet stalls that are 31" or smaller in width since larger pilasters are required at the end of larger panels.
FLOOR TO CEILING
Floor to ceiling mounted bathroom partitions are the most durable design, but they are more expensive because there is more material and it requires blocking in the ceiling for the pilasters to attach. It is good for all areas subject to high usage. For problem areas we recommend the use of full height brackets and hinges.
Ceiling mounted bathroom partitions are preferred in many applications since they provide ease of floor maintenance. These ceiling mounted restroom partitions also provide a flush look across the bottom of the compartments. Ceiling hung requires 3/8" to 5/8" bolts in the ceiling and it is usually more expensive than other styles because it requires pilasters to be attached to strut or iron in the ceiling. It has the same limitations as floor mounted on toilet partitions widths.
