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
