Find Out How to Get the Cheapest Toilet Partition Prices!
The year is about to end, and prices continue to skyrocket. Here at Newton Distributing, we can help you navigate the industry for cost-efficient restroom products. Therefore, we wanted to address this highly searched question; what’s the cheapest toilet partition? The answer is pretty simple, but first, let’s address why toilet partitions have different price ranges. After all, Newton is here to help guide you to find the best options for your projects.
Stainless vs Powder Coated Steel
A common inquiry about stalls revolves around the two most popular material choices: powder coated steel vs stainless steel. Yes, they are both steel and highly durable for a high traffic restroom. In addition, they are each easy to clean and maintain. Either choice is an ideal addition for your commercial bathroom. So why does stainless steel cost more than the powder coat option?
“Stainless steel is more expensive to produce because of the addition of the variety of alloying elements, such as iron, chromium, nickel, manganese and copper. Manufacturers also add about 10% chromium to the steel as an added agent to provide corrosion resistance.”

Powder coated steel is a powder coat paint that covers a lackluster steel finish. Therefore, it doesn’t require the more expensive chemical finishes. Stainless stall panels are designed to have an aesthetically pleasing finish focusing on the grain of the steel. Furthermore, many customers choose to have a textured finish which costs more to manufacture. When finished and installed, a textured stainless restroom is absolutely gorgeous. Money well worth spending if you have the budget and want your finished restroom to have a high-end appeal.
Other Materials vs Steel
Plastic laminate, solid plastic, and phenolic are the other options for toilet partition materials. Each have unique properties that are ideal for various restrooms. Solid plastic can survive high traffic or outdoor restrooms like at a camp ground. Quickly wash them with a hose and they look brand new. Laminate and phenolic options come with a huge array of finishes making them easy to match to any restroom design. Perhaps you want a speckled or textured appearance, then these options are the choice to find what best matches your restroom.
Did you notice something about all of those options? They all feature customization ideal to match any concept you have. In other words, their prices are higher than powder coated steel as well. Any time you need to add a custom touch to make the product match your layout, the more money you are going to spend. In conclusion, powder coated steel is the cheapest toilet partition material you can buy.
What About Mounting Options?
Three common mounting styles are headrail braced, floor braced, or ceiling hung. Alternatively, you can also choose ceiling to floor mounted, but it is less common. Ceiling to floor mounted provides the most durability and ideal for restrooms with a high chance of vandalism. Therefore, it’s not the most common choice made by customers. Floor braced and ceiling hung are similar in price points, but they require more effort when installing to ensure they are durable. Hanging stalls from the ceiling needs special brackets for installation. After all, you don’t want someone hanging on them and risking the partition panels crashing down. Same goes for floor mounted, those floor anchors better be secure to avoid someone easily knocking the stalls down.
This leaves the most common and cost-efficient option: headrail braced. Headrail braced toilet partitions are securely mounted to the floor but also have a headrail above the panels included to provide more structural integrity. Since there is more material, that should mean it costs more, right? Nope. With installation being much easier and the units being more durable, the headrail braced option actually saves you money! In conclusion, headrail braced if the cheapest toilet partition mounting option.
What About Privacy Options?
Let’s cover this quickly. To have more privacy for your toilet partitions means you need more material. Privacy options can go past 72” in height, but this means to manufacture panels and doors at this size, more material needs to be billed. More material equals more money. Obviously, going with the standard 58” toilet partition height leads to the cheapest toilet partition privacy option.
