Solid Plastic bathroom stalls ( HDPE or High Density Polyethylene )

This toilet partition material is ideal for Schools, Institutions, and Stadiums or any other high traffic or highly vandalized areas. Solid plastic is rust - free which makes it ideal for pool locker restrooms or anywhere that water or humidity is abundant. 

Resistant to graffiti, molds, mildews, and most common cleaners the non-porous plastic will not absorb odors.

Clean, professional look that stands up to abuse and is easily maintained

Heavy Duty Hardware Standard: Plastic or stainless steel Shoes & Continuous Brackets, 8" Hinges, 6" Strikes & Keepers

Color applied throughout panels (not just in finish), so scratches & dents barely show
