So Many Toilet Partition Options, Where to Begin?

Toilet Partitions installed in a locker room or a bathroom next to a high school cafeteria may be more prone to vandalism, so a solid plastic or phenolic material may be the best choice. Partitions in lower grade levels or less vandal-prone areas may choose powder-coated or stainless steel. School Fix® represents the industry-leading Toilet Partition Brands, with many color options and hardware upgrades available to fit any school environment. Follow this guide in order to make an informed decision when procuring new restroom partitions for your school.
