More and more commercial buildings like schools are designing privacy-centric restrooms to accommodate the needs of male, female, and transgender individuals. These spaces include an enclosed, floor-to-ceiling glass toilet partitions, and co-gender bathroom, which aims to achieve optimal privacy. The restroom glass stalls are sleekly designed, as well as easy to clean and maintain.

Toilet Partition Code Requirements

According to ADA and ICC A117.1 regulations, accessible toilet compartment doors must be self-closing for easy access. Hinges, typically made of stainless steel for durability, need to support a 5 lbs opening force and close within 5 seconds to meet ADA standards.
