Are your school washrooms looking a little tired?

At Cubicle Centre we have over 20 years of experience in manufacturing toilet and shower cubicles, from the Olympic Village in London to the smallest nursery.

From its humblest beginnings in our founder’s garage, to the large factory premises in West Yorkshire, we know toilet cubicles inside out, so if you feel your washrooms and toilet facilities need a refresh, we have the solution.

Why it’s important to offer the best facilities

A recent survey conducted by YouGov uncovered some worrying statistics about the impact of poor hygiene in school facilities.

According to research, one in ten teachers asked, said pupils were not eating and drinking whilst at school in a bid to avoid using the school toilets and 46% of children admitted to concentration issues because they needed the toilet, but didn’t want to use the school’s facilities.

With this in mind, it’s vital to consider your washroom facilities when looking at refurbishment plans, to ensure that students feel safe and comfortable.

This can be achieved in many ways, but the most important is to make sure they are maintained to the highest standard. 

Cubicle Centre offers a wide range of cubicle and panel products to create a modern, fresh washroom environment from our Brecon range of cubicles designed for primary school age children, up to our Privacy range – a full height solution offering complete privacy for students.

Brecon Junior school cubicles

Our Brecon Cubicles are full of features making them ideal for a primary school environment.

These specially designed cubicles are sized for children with the total height of the cubicle available between 1500mm to 1800mm high and the doors with options between 1200 and 1500mm tall.

These lower level doors ensure that should it be necessary, pupils can be supervised by their teachers or assistants and yet still maintain a level of privacy. 

Partitions and shaped doors are available in a wide choice of colours and additionally, there are a number of fun vinyl designs to choose from to add that extra element of a personal touch to the washroom.

Cubicles are available in Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC), High Pressure Laminate (HPL) and also in Compact Grade Laminate (CGL).

A Compact Grade Laminate option is perfect for a high traffic setting, with durable and water-resistant panels. Slamming doors and splashed water are no trouble for these tough cubicles.

A level of privacy

As children progress to senior school then the need for a level of privacy increases and as such, we have a range of more ‘grown up’ cubicles, with our Privacy range being very popular for school washrooms.

Manufactured from durable CGL, this functional, clean design make this full height cubicle system perfect for school washrooms, either in single sex or gender-neutral environments.
