The design that you choose for school restrooms has an impact on the health and safety of the students that use the facilities. It also has a bearing on the longevity of elements such as restroom cubicles as poor quality materials lead to premature wear and tear. School restrooms experience high footfall all day by children and adolescents of all ages. The right school restroom design takes a number of factors into account including the safety of users, hygiene, utility, and durability of the solutions. In this blog, we are going to look at four important considerations when choosing school restroom cubicles.
Damage, Graffiti and Scratch-Resistance
School restroom cubicles are prone to damage, graffiti, and scratches from the activities of the students. That is why it is important to choose a material that can withstand rough use and abuse while being able to maintain its aesthetic appeal. High-Pressure laminates (HPL) have various features that make them a great choice of material for school restroom cubicles. They have:
- High wear and abrasion resistance
- Exceptional water, humidity, and high temperature resistance
Emergency Opening Provisions
Every public bathroom requires emergency opening provision, more so in school restrooms. Students can experience medical emergencies while inside school restroom cubicles or even intentionally lock themselves in for one reason or the other. The availability of emergency opening provisions allows easy access to help students that are in distress. Greenlam Sturdo offers school restroom cubicles that have emergency opening provisions for when the need arises.
Privacy & Prevention of Overhead Access
School restrooms are one of the common areas where bullying takes place. It is important to choose a school restroom design that promotes safety and privacy. It is advisable to go for ceiling-high restroom cubicles to prevent overhead access. Greenlam Sturdo offers restroom cubicles that can be customized according to need. You can also check out our collections such as the Classique and Vibrance collections for some school restroom designs that reach the ceiling.
Ease of Maintenance
School restrooms are busy spaces with frequent usage and rough handling. Messy school restrooms are not only an eyesore to users but they also pose a serious health risk. That is why ease of maintenance is an important consideration when choosing school restroom cubicles and other restroom facilities. HPL restroom cubicles are a favorite for educational facilities as they are:
- Hygienic and easy to clean
- Resistant to harmful germs and cleaning agents
- Endowed with germ-free antibacterial properties
