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.
