Privacy Partition Features & Benefits

The benefits of a ShowerShapes® Privacy Partition are highly regarded as some of the finest characteristics of a privacy partition system.  Here are some of the features and benefits of our systems.

Overall Benefits

1st Proven Corian Partition System

ShowerShapes® was the first company in the United States to produce a solid surface privacy partition using Corian® over 30 years ago.  Corian® and now other solid surfaces, offer excellent benefits for commercial bathroom privacy partitions for toilets and urinals.

Easy to Clean and Remove Graffiti, Including Scratches

Corian® and our other solid surface materials are an excellent choice for bathrooms where markings and graffiti happen.  These attractive solid surfaces can be cleaned with regular bathroom cleaning products.  Even scratches can be removed by sanding the surface by maintenance personnel with a simple method.

1000's of Stalls in Service

In the last 30 years, we have produced 1000’s of privacy partition stalls for contractors and builders all over the United States.  Most of those partitions are still in use today because of their long-lasting durability and timeless appearance.

Sleek, One-Piece Panel Design

Our bathroom privacy partitions come to you in single panels to make installation much easier and faster for the construction crew and installers.

Doors That Swing One-Way

Our privacy partition doors swing in one direction only.  The door can be installed to open into the stall or out to the bathroom.  This means the door can be installed to the needs of each particular room.  Other doors can only swing inside or outside, but not both.  This gives you more flexibility.

The hardware keeps the door ajar when the stall is vacant

Our unique hardware will keep the door ajar, quickly signaling stall vacancy to bathroom visitors.
