Schools are facilities that see heavy public restroom use every day and school restrooms often suffer damage, whether it is accidental, intentional vandalism or environmental damage. Costs to repair broken fixtures are high at a time when many school district budgets are shrinking.
There are several measures schools can take to effectively prevent vandalism and keep restrooms in working order. One such measure is to use access doors, roof hatches and other Elmdor products made from durable materials, such as galvanized steel. This measure can save future costs because durable fixtures rarely need repair or replacement.
Elmdor specializes in constructing access doors, pipe isolators, roof hatches and flashing that stand up to harsh punishments within educational facilities and fierce weather outside. These types of fixtures have been used in school construction projects to help prevent damaging and costly acts of vandalism and weather and to keep restrooms functional.
In addition to durability and functionality, an aesthetic appearance is also an important consideration for school restrooms. To that end, our stainless steel access doors come in a variety of finishes.
Benefits of durable Elmdor products in schools & other educational applications include:
- Heavy gage galvanized steel construction, which adds durability and strength above that of other materials.
- Seamless welded construction and safety locks, which prevent students from using the fixture to hide dangerous or illegal items.
- Ideal for new construction or retrofit—fixtures can be engineered to fit existing rough-ins.
- Low-maintenance and vandal-resistant—save money on repairs and replacements and keep restrooms functional.
