Restroom Partition Redesign Increases Privacy

Commercial washrooms solutions company Bradley Corp. recently announced the redesign of its Mills Phenolic No-Site Partitions to eliminate gaps between doors and pilasters, offering increased privacy in all types of educational facilities. The design is now standard for the company’s full portfolio of Phenolic models in an attempt to increase the safety and comfort of the restroom experience.

The manufacturer has added a vertical phenolic partition line with a rabbeted edge along both the hinge and latch sides of the door, closing off sight lines between the interior and exterior of the restroom stall. The product is available in 12 colors and four different mounting styles. The phenolic core material has been GREENGUARD certified as low-emitting, and it stands up against high use, moisture, oil, bacteria, and graffiti. Select models are also available with extra-large panels.

“Bradley’s research shows that almost half of Americans are uncomfortable or bothered by the small gap between doors and pilasters in restroom partitions,” said Mary Scherer, product manager for Bradley Corp. “Our new Phenolic No-Site redesign eliminates unsightly gaps and gives owners and architects the options to create comfortable and discreet spaces for restroom users. We’re excited to deliver full privacy partition solutions for our customers as standard.”

The partitions come with pre-drilled indicator latch holes, as well as pre-installed threaded inserts on pilasters and doors, for easy installation.
