The Problems With American Stalls


No one ever gets excited about going to use the public restrooms and with good reason. A typical American stall is not the most appealing place to spend any length of time. How many times have you decided…“I’m just going to hold it until I get home”?

Also, if you own a restaurant, bar, or another business that has a commercial restroom. Hence, you do not want your customers to feel that way. Besides, the bulk of public bathrooms in America have a bad reputation for having a lack of privacy and an abundance of issues.

Below, we will highlight some of the problems as well as some solutions to address the issues.

The Issues with American Stalls

Large Gaps at Doors

Most of the issues on this list (except the gap at the floor) can be in elimination with proper installing techniques. If the project is appropriately measured and engineered, you should not have significant differences that allow for a game to peek a boo.

Also, gaps at the doors should be no more significant than 1/4″ (thinner than a pencil). If you currently have substantial differences at your door(s), you can typically adjust these. It is as simple as lifting your “shoe” (trim piece at the floor) and sliding the pilaster over on the adjustable floor brackets.
