Plastic Laminate Clad Toilet Compartments

 

Use this CSI 3-part SimpleSpec™ specification for specifying Plastic Laminate Clad Toilet Compartments and urinal screens.

 

The section includes standard compartments using in-floor or ceiling-hung mounting configurations.  Other types of partitions with enhanced abuse resistance and increased privacy can be added to this section.

 

What are Plastic laminate-clad toilet compartments and urinal screens?

 

They are a type of toilet partition system commonly used in commercial construction projects. These partitions are made from a plastic laminate material that is applied over a core of particleboard or medium-density fiberboard (MDF). They are then covered with a high-pressure laminate layer, giving them a smooth, hard surface that is resistant to moisture, stains, and bacteria.

 

Plastic laminate-clad toilet compartments and urinal screens have several advantages over metal toilet compartments. One of the main advantages is that they are more durable and long-lasting than metal partitions. Plastic laminate is resistant to scratches, dents, and rust, which makes it a more suitable choice for heavy-use areas such as public restrooms.

 

Another advantage is that they are more attractive than metal partitions. Plastic laminate partitions can be made in various colors, patterns, and designs.  Making them a more visually appealing option for commercial construction projects. Furthermore, they are easy to clean, which is important in public restrooms, and they are also more soundproof than metal partitions, which helps with privacy.

 

Finally, they are more cost-effective than metal partitions. They are less expensive to manufacture, install, and maintain than metal partitions, which can make them a more budget-friendly option for commercial construction projects.

 

In summary, the units are a popular and cost-effective choice for commercial construction projects due to their durability, attractive appearance, ease of maintenance, and soundproofing properties. They are better than metal toilet compartments in those aspects.

 

Building codes often require a fire hazard classification ASTM E84 Class A or B rating. At the same time, others require compliance with NFPA 286 room test.

The SimpleSpecs™ master specs concept
 
Adding More Words Does Not Make Specifications More Enforceable.    
Design professionals are accustomed to seeing lengthy project specifications, so why is SimpleSpecs™ so short?
 
Specifications have grown evermore wordy over the years for several reasons:
  1. The mistaken belief that specifications must be lengthy and legal-sounding to be enforceable.  In fact, quite the opposite is true.  Having shorter, easily understood specifications makes us less likely to have problems in the field.
  2. A belief that having lots of words protects us from a Contactor making mistakes.  There is no way to include enough statements to protect yourself from a bad contractor, regardless of the length of your specification.
  3. Our desire to be in control of the project by specifying means and methods instead of including simple, enforceable statements.
 
Easier to Edit

SimpleSpecs™ is written as a series of Microsoft word files that include statements that affect construction costs or overall quality and are far simpler to edit than other master specification systems.

Non-Proprietary

Each SimpleSpecs™ specification section is non-proprietary and includes three manufacturers that meet the specified reference standards, descriptive, or performance-based requirements. They are written to allow any listed manufacturers to provide the specified products.

 
Hidden Guide Text

Each SimpleSpecs™ specification section includes hidden text to inform and guide users in editing the specifications to suit project conditions.

 
Streamlined Editing

SimpleSpecs™ sections are edited using pre-defined options that are contained in [brackets] or by selecting optional text separated by "OR" statements. Paragraph and page numbering are included as automatic codes, eliminating the need to renumber when revisions are made manually.  Global changes to headers, footer, terms, font colors and phrases are easily updated using a third-party search and replace software, available through ZeroDocs.com.
