Throughout this guide, we will be reviewing proper toilet partition installation and tips that will help you with the process. New partitions can be a great way to rejuvenate your bathrooms, especially if people have been unkind with the last ones> Just make sure that you take your time and properly install the partitions so they continue to function correctly for years to come.

Before You Start

Before starting the bathroom partition installation, ensure that you have the design drawings and any necessary hardware, anchors, and components. Once you have gathered everything, including any instructions that were provided, you will be ready to start your toilet partition installation.

Establishing Floor Brackets

The first step in your Partition installation process will be to establish your floor brackets. Using your instructions and the dimensions of your partitions, establish the ideal location for your floor brackets. Typically, you will establish the front centerline by taking the overall compartment dimension and deducting 16mm (5/8”) If you are replacing partitions, the previously installed hardware should be pretty close to the required location. Just make sure that the holes from your last toilet partitions are still usable and not stripped.

Once you’ve measured twice and checked the integrity of old holes if applicable, secure your hardware to the floor. This may require drilling, so ensure that you use a method that best suits your flooring to drill out the necessary holes. Note: It may be beneficial to leave things “almost tight” until you are finished installing your toilet partitions to allow slight adjustments to happen naturally.

Erecting The Pilasters and Panels

Once the floor brackets are installed, you are ready to put up the wall pilasters and panels. After that, you will install the hardware for the door to be hung on the pilaster. Follow the layout drawings for pilaster locations. Using your centerline locations, fasten two 2-ear panel brackets to the wall, per panel. Bracket centers should be about eighteen inches and 64 inches from the floor.

Rest your panel on a twelve inch block and position it in the brackets. Drill one hole through the top bracket and fasten it to the wall. Keep your panel on the stabilizer block until the pilaster has been installed to prevent shifting.

Fasten two of your single ear pilaster brackets “F brackets” to the wall. Your brackets should be centered 18 and 64 inches from the floor. Slide the pilaster shoe into place. Position the pilaster into the wall brackets and over the floor brackets, install your leveling device, and plumb your pillaster into place to finish this step.

Attaching The Door

Attach the lower and upper hinges to the pilaster, noting that there is a male cam that you will need to add to the lower hinge. Place the next pilaster on the floor brackets and mark the centerline of the panel on the back. Mark the bracket centers at 18 and 64 inches from the floor. Using the brackets as templates, mark and drill out your holes.

Slide the pilaster shoe into place, positioning the pilaster over the floor brackets. Adjust the pilaster’s alignment to make the alcove channel grasp the panel. Install the floor bracket hardware, levelling device and tighten the hardware. Next, plumb the panel and pilaster, then secure the panel to the pilaster “U” brackets.

Attaching The Door

After inserting the female cam into the bottom-door hinge casting, you will attach the inner and outer door knobs. Install the door pulls if necessary and attach your toilet partition’s coat hook and bumper.

Lower the door onto the male cam of the lower hinge, then install the threaded upper hinge pin. To set your door to the required angle, loosen the nut of the male cam assembly, set the door at the required angle and tighten your nut to secure. Fasten the stop & keeper onto the pilaster, ensuring it lines up with the door latch.

Repeat And Wrap Up

Ensure that all of your pilasters are fastened to the floor brackets and add any remaining fasteners to complete installation of your first toilet partition. Repeat steps 3-10 to finish installing bathroom partitions. When you’re done, fasten the headrail brackets to the wall, approximately 81 and a half inches above the floor.

Then, you will place the headrail into the tops of pilasters and slide them into your headrail brackets. Splice the sections of Headrail on top of the pilaster for an exact fit that looks great. Fasten the headrail to the it’s wall brackets and install the end cap if required. After your headrail is fastened to the pilaster, the only thing you have left to do is ensure that all hardware is installed. This is when you will want to completely secure the partitions.
