Toilet partition is referred as an enclosure used to surround toilets in public bathrooms. The partition essentially provides privacy to the person using the bathroom stall. Toilet partitions are available in various configurations, materials, and types. The configuration can vary for each type of bathroom. It is primarily dependent on the traffic the restroom receives. A smaller restroom usually has three toilet stalls: two standard ones and one handicap stall. A men’s restroom can have one or two urinals. However, a high school restroom for a football team can even have up to 15 stalls on each side of the door.
Materials used in the bathroom partition can vary, from wooden structures, powder coated steel, and glass to brick and solid plastics. Waterproof and durable are the newer types of partitions. These can be customized as per the location. Facility restrooms in U.S. need to conform to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which is a set of specific guidelines and codes that must be met to complete a restroom project. The ADA-compliant toilet stalls should conform to the following dimensions: minimum 60 inches in width, 56 inches in depth for wall mounted ones, and 59 inches in depth for floor mounted toilets. The grab bar dimension should be at least 36 inches long. However, a standard toilet features a toilet in the center on the back wall and an out-swinging door. The dimension of the standard toilet includes 36 inches minimum stall width and have minimum 60 inches stall depth.
Increase in trend of green building has influenced manufacturers to design sustainable and innovative products. This is expected to drive the toilet partition market during the forecast period. Rise in demand of customers for higher privacy in restrooms, especially in commercial places such as airports and gyms, has led to the development of designs in terms of partitions. This has resulted in the supply of longer panels. Additionally, minimization of gaps between the stalls is estimated to boost the demand for gap-filling materials. These partitions are easy to install; light in weight; durable; odor repellent; resistant to fire, dust, and flame; and largely damage-proof. These partitions also provide scratch and impact resistance.
The global toilet partition market can be segmented based on product, end-user, and region. In terms of product, the toilet partition market can be divided into metal partition, solid plastic toilet partition, plastic laminate toilet partition, stainless steel toilet partition, and others. Based on end-user, the toilet partition market can be segregated into shopping mall, school, office building, traffic service station, and others.
Based on region, the global toilet partition market can be split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. In terms of revenue, North America is expected to account for major share of the global toilet partition market during the forecast period. The toilet partition market in the U.S. is primarily influenced by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) rules enacted by the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) to meet the sustainability goals. The new standards formed by the U.S. Green Building Council along with Restroom Access Act are also likely to drive the toilet partition market during the forecast period. Implementation of these standards has boosted competition among manufacturers to provide sustainable and innovative products.
