What are the different types of toilet and shower cubicle configurations?

Toilet cubicle and shower cubicle configurations are important when designing your commercial washroom. Once you have identified the space where the toilet cubicles will be positioned, understanding the most suitable configuration type is key to making the best use of the space.

The information in this FAQ shows the 4 most common washroom cubicle configurations.

Cubicle Door Assembly

The cubicle door assembly is for when you require only a functioning toilet door as it will be set between two walls. This type of cubicle door is typically used where solid walls have been built to partition each toilet. The door assembly is supplied with 2 pilasters, 1 toilet cubicle door, and the necessary hardware which includes the toilet cubicle lock, hinges, and headrail. When shopping on our website to purchase a toilet cubicle door assembly, you can easily change the number of assemblies you require by simply changing the drop-down quantity option to the number required.  If required, we can also supply a single cubicle door on its own.

Inline Toilet Cubicle

Inline toilet cubicles are often set against a side wall and have the side cubicle partition running on the same axis as the toilet cubicle door (when closed).
The inline toilet cubicle can be purchased by selecting the "1 Wall Angle" option on the drop-down on our website. The in-line cubicle pack is supplied with 2 pilasters, 1 door, and 1 partition. Plus all the cubicle hardware you'll require.

Wall Angle (in a Corner).

The wall angle toilet cubicle configuration is for when a toilet cubicle (or cubicles) will be set into a corner without a terminating wall. The run of cubicles starts with a wall and is finished with a cubicle partition. Since each cubicle will share a central pilaster, an additional panel will be required to terminate the run and close off the last cubicle (unlike between walls cubicles below). This particular toilet cubicle configuration is very common in many commercial washroom designs. When shopping on our website, this toilet cubicle configuration is purchased by selecting "Wall Angle" from the drop-down menu with the number of toilet cubicles also being selected from the drop-down menu. Again as a cubicle pack, all the required hardware is also supplied with your order.

Between Walls.

Cubicles configured between walls are (as the name suggests) a run of cubicles set between two walls. Where the first cubicle is set into the corner wall and the last in the run is also terminated by a solid wall. This configuration provides no requirement for an additional terminating cubicle partition panel. This cubicle configuration is purchased by selecting "Between Walls" from the drop-down menu with the number of toilet cubicles also being selected from the drop-down menu. Since each pair of cubicles will share a central pilaster, the first and last cubicle will be formed with a cubicle partition on one side and a stud or block wall on the other.  As per all the other toilet cubicle packs, all the required hardware is also supplied with any order for between walls toilet cubicles.
