Toilet partitions in India from Greenlam Sturdo

Toilet partitions are an integral part of various types of establishments such as malls, hotels, restaurants, movie halls, gymnasiums, and various other places. Though builders and contractors leave no stone unturned to ensure they use the best possible bathroom partitions, the task is generally easier said than done. In addition to satisfying the project’s quality and budgetary requirements, they also need to comply with various hygiene and sanitation guidelines. So, to help you make the right buying decision, we present a list of the certifications to check when buying toilet partitions.

FSC® Certification

Awarded by certifying bodies in the US, the FSC certification ensures that a product is manufactured from “responsibly managed” forests and that the manufacturing process has environmental, social, and economic benefits.

The Greenguard certification means that a product meets some of the world’s highest and most comprehensive standards for low VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions into indoor air, which is always a concern for commercial establishments.

The Greenguard Gold Certificate, in addition to regulating the emissions of more than 360 VOCs and other chemicals, ensures that a product complies with the requirements of the State of California’s Department of Public Health.

Fire Propagation Test Certification

A fire propagation test certificate is another key attribute to check when buying toilet partitions. The certificate is awarded to products qualifying rigorous fire testing that proves their resistance to fire outbreaks.

Antibacterial Certification

Commercial restrooms generally provide an ideal ground for microbial growth. That is the reason why it is important to choose bathroom cubicles made from a material that is resistant to microbial growth, and antibacterial certification assures just that.

Chemical Resistance Certification

Toilet partitions are to be cleaned at regular intervals and the process can involve a number of chemical-based cleaning agents. It is therefore important to ensure that the bathroom cubicles you choose also have chemical resistance certification.
