Choosing the right door closer for high-end bathroom applications depends largely on utility and aesthetics. According to ADA 604.8.2 Ambulatory Accessible Compartments, restroom compartment doors shall be self-closing. Pivot hinges generally aren’t suitable for stall doors due to toe clearance code, while continuous hinges pose installation cost and service problems. At the same time, unsightly door closers can ruin the look of a well-designed space.
