How to Install Toilet Partitions


Toilet partitions play a crucial role in providing privacy and adding to the functionality of restrooms. Proper installation ensures stability, durability, and a nice appearance. This guide outlines the process for installing toilet partitions, focusing on the most common unit arrangement. Whether you are putting units between two walls or between panels, these instructions will help you achieve a professional result.

Pre-Installation Considerations

Before diving into the installation process, it's important to prepare:

  1. Review Dimensional Information: Refer to your plan layout and dimensional details. Pay close attention to the relationship of the panels to the pilasters, as panels do not necessarily align with the centerline of the pilaster.
  2. Assess Site Conditions: Uneven floors and walls can affect the installation process. Compensate for these variations to ensure a rigid and level installation.
  3. Distributor’s Responsibility: Ensure that end-users are provided with maintenance and warranty information.

Step-by-Step Installation Instructions

Establish Floor Bracket Locations
  1. Determine the front centerline by subtracting 16 mm (5/8”) from the overall compartment dimension.
  2. Use the final layout drawings to identify the exact locations for the floor brackets.
Fasten Floor Brackets
  1. Drill holes for the floor brackets, positioning them 22 mm (7/8”) from the edge of the pilaster locations as indicated on the layout drawing.
Erect Panel
  1. Using your centerline locations, fasten two panel brackets to the wall. Bracket centers should be 457 mm (18”) and 1626 mm (64”) from the floor.
  2. Rest the panel on a 318 mm (12.5”) block and position it in the brackets, maintaining a 13 mm (1/2”) clearance between the wall and the panel.
  3. Drill one hole through the top bracket and fasten it securely.
Erect Wall Pilaster
  1. Fasten two "F" brackets to the wall at the centerline, with bracket centers at 457 mm (18”) and 1626 mm (64”) from the floor.
  2. Slide the shoe onto the pilaster.
  3. Position the pilaster in the wall brackets and over the floor brackets.
  4. Install the floor bracket hardware and leveling device, plumb the pilaster, and tighten all fasteners.
  5. Attach the pilaster to the wall brackets.
Prepare Pilaster for Door
  1. Fasten the upper and lower hinges to the wall pilaster.
Fasten "U" Brackets to Pilaster
  1. Place the next pilaster on the floor brackets and mark the centerline of the panel on the back.
  2. Mark bracket centers at 457 mm (18”) and 1626 mm (64”) from the floor. Using the brackets as templates, mark the drill holes.
  3. Remove the pilaster from the floor brackets and fasten the "U" brackets.
Erect Pilaster
  1. For a better pilaster shoe fit, ensure that the front and back edges of the shoe are parallel. Apply hand pressure to the back seam of the shoe if necessary.
  2. Slide the shoe onto the pilaster.
  3. Insert the leveling device and position the pilaster on the floor brackets (do not tighten yet), with the "U" brackets engaging the panel.
  4. Drill one hole through the top bracket and fasten it securely.
 Prepare Door for Hanging
  1. Install the female cam in the door.
  2. Install the latch, coat hook, and bumper.
 Hang Door
  1. Insert the male cam into the bottom hinge and lower the door onto it.
  2. Install the threaded upper hinge pin.
  3. To set the door at the required angle, loosen the nut of the male cam assembly, set the door angle, and tighten the nut.
  4. Fasten the stop and keeper on the pilaster, making sure it aligns with the latch.
  5. Optionally, pre-install the headrail (without fastening) to assist in lining up and spacing pilasters.
Erect Remaining Compartments
  1. Ensure all pilasters are fastened to floor brackets.
  2. Add all remaining fasteners and repeat steps 3-10 for all remaining compartments.
  3. It is suggested to install one compartment (including door) at a time.
Secure Headrail Brackets
  1. Fasten the headrail brackets to the wall approximately 2070 mm (81.5”) above the floor. Adjust as necessary due to varying floor conditions.
Place Headrail
  1. First, place the headrail into the tops of the pilasters and slide it into the headrail brackets.
  2. Next, fasten the headrail to the pilasters (screws on the inside of the compartment) and to the headrail wall brackets.
  3. Install the headrail end cap if required.
  4. Adjust the leveling devices to level all compartment components and tighten all fasteners.
  5. Drill all remaining panel holes and fasten them to the brackets.

Final Adjustments and Inspection

After finishing the installation, take time to inspect each compartment. Ensure all components are secure, level, and properly aligned. Check that doors swing and latches engage correctly. Making these final adjustments will guarantee a beautiful and professional installation.

Maintenance and Care

Provide end-users with detailed maintenance instructions to ensure the longevity of the toilet partitions. Regular cleaning and checks for loose or damaged components will keep the partitions in optimal condition.


Installing toilet partitions may seem tough, but with careful planning and attention to detail, it can be completed efficiently. Following these instructions will help you achieve a sturdy and attractive installation, adding to the functionality and appearance.
