Silent, tightly closing but not slamming doors, neat partitions without slots, safe
bathroom stalls – all this is ensured by high-quality plumbing hardware.
Features of Fasteners
Fasteners for restroom partitions are distinguished by their intended purpose – legs, brackets, holders, angle brackets, door hinges, turn/release handles
(both for right and left hand), locks. They are all sold in kits and individually.
As partitions for bathrooms are made of various materials, the fasteners are produced taking into account their features. The fasteners for chipboard, plastic, glass partitions have some common features, such as functionality, durability, convenience, and some distinguishing features, such as design, dimensions for panels of various thicknesses.
Modern hardware is always concise by design, although it can be
geometrically austere or with soft outlines.
Restroom partition hardware
is made of stainless steel, aluminum and polypropylene, which differ in quality depending on the manufacturer. For example, there is little in common between high-tech European nylon with antibacterial coating and domestic plastics. Stainless steel elements are often chrome plated or coated with a scratch- and wear-resistant sprayed coating, so they can be used for decades without any slightest damage to their appearance. Powder coating of aluminum parts also improves their appearance and increases resistance to damage. Nylon products are characterized by high precision in fitting of the components at a modest price.
How to Choose Bathroom Partition Fasteners
Precision in parts fitting, load resistance – all this will affect the service
life of the stalls.
What to pay attention to upon purchase:
- • Steel quality – the leading manufacturers of plumbing accessories use AISI 304
stainless steel – an acid-resistant material with exceptional resistance to high
temperatures and corrosion.
- • High-quality stainless steel products are more frequently machined, without any
welding marks. After all, it is welding seams that cause rust leaks.
- • Any fittings should sit precisely on the surface, not get stuck, be free of scratches and backlashes.
- • Durable hardware comes complete with stainless steel inner fasteners, where even
the smallest bolts are made of 304-grade steel.
- • An additional advantage of modern equipment is vandal resistance, and here again
steel products gain the lead.
- • The cost of fasteners made of stainless steel is higher than that of aluminum,
polypropylene, not to mention inexpensive domestic plastics. The price also
depends on the brand, design, and configuration.
- • The additional convenience of fittings is made up of discreet elements. For
example, some of the surface mounted parts are complemented by gaskets to protect the panels from damage, and hinges are equipped with door closers that keep the doors fully open, closed and partly-closed, depending on actual needs.
