When upgrading your gym, the changing rooms and bathroom area are absolutely vital. You can have as many shiny machines in the main area as you want, but if your members walk into a run-down,outdated, and disheveled changing area, it won’t matter. So, when fitting out your changing rooms – especially the shower and bathroom area, you need to make sure that you use the best materials possible, and at the top of the list will be phenolic partitions.
If you are unaware of what phenolic partitions are and why you should use them, there are some distinct advantages:
As you are footing the bill, you will want to get good value for your money. Phenolic toilet partitions are known for their strength and durability, and their dense, hardwearing design means they can resist the kinds of scratches, dents, and general wear and tear that you would expect in a busy gym bathroom.
Because the material is so tough,it is useful when you have badly behaved members who want to disrespect their surroundings.If they attempt to graffiti in the bathroom stalls, anything that they write (or draw) can be typically removed without damaging the surface.
#2 Lowmaintenance and hygienic
It is not just graffiti that should come off easily, as the non-porous surface makes it easy to clean using standard bathroom cleaning agents. So, it should reduce how much time your janitorial service spends maintaining them.
The hard surface also hinders the growth of mildew andthe black mold that so regularly occurs in gym bathrooms. This more hygienic approach will leave a much better impression on your members than old and smelly bathroom stalls.
#3 Aesthetically pleasing
Clearly, you want your revamped gym bathroom to look the part, and you will need your toilet stalls to fit in with the design of the showers and the rest of the changing room. Phenolic stalls are, if you go to the right supplier, available with numerous veneer options, that you will be able to easily find something that aligns perfectly with your overall look.
You will also find that the right supplier will be able to supply them in exactly the right sizes for your bathroom area and will come with all the hardware needed for installation. This is important if you are keeping an eye on your budget and you don’t want to employ specialist fitters.
#4 Moisture resistance
Unlike a regular bathroom used by many people, like a company restroom, your gym bathroom will be next to the showers. This means they will be subject to plenty of steam and water vapor that could cause damage to partitions made from a different material.
