Toilet cubicle design has evolved significantly from the traditional brick and mortar walls to the modern modular toilet cubicles. The best toilet cubicles today are made from high-pressure laminates and come with a plethora of features that enhance their performance, safety, and durability. In this blog, we will answer some frequently asked questions about toilet cubicles.

Why are toilet cubicles so high?

Bathroom cubicle partitions and doors are designed to be high enough to provide users with the much-needed privacy. The height of the partitions and doors is such that users cannot have eye contact with each other.

Why do toilet cubicles not reach the floor?

The design of toilet cubicles not reaching the floor, known as the dry toilet cubicle design, is intended to facilitate easier cleaning of the stalls and the floor. Drains can also be installed in the floor, making mopping and even power-washing a breeze. The absence of corners also means that dust doesn’t settle in the stalls. Other benefits of the dry toilet cubicle design when compared to the wet design include:

  • Reduced installation time
  • Better hygiene and neatness
  • Economy of space
  • Proper air ventilation
  • Economy of load

Why are toilet cubicles not fully enclosed?

Toilet stalls are not fully-enclosed for a number of reasons. The most prominent reason is that the somewhat reduced level of privacy discourages the occurrence of shady activities within the stalls.

Why do toilet cubicle doors open inwards?

Toilet cubicle doors open inwards as a way to save space. The door occupies more space if it opens outwards, which is not the best design for crowded public restrooms. Safety would also be an issue as people passing by the stalls would be susceptible to getting hit by the doors when they are opened.
