There are many choices when choosing a material for your bathroom partitions. Though you may not be aware of it, many of the materials available for restroom partitions are not solid throughout meaning that the core is made from a particleboard or cardboard core. These cores are subject to mold,mildew and/or rust in a wet environment.
Hiny Hider partitions by Scranton Products are constructed from premium American-made 1″ solid High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with a homogenous color throughout. The material resists dents, scratches, corrosion, graffiti and mildew – and will absolutely never rust.
This is especially important in restrooms because HDPE can be fully power washed and steam cleaned helping eliminate germs and bacteria that can feed in a restroom environment. The material is also impermeable to moisture and the non-porous surface does not support the growth of mold and mildew.
Because they never need painting, Hiny Hiders HDPE partitions deliver no VOC emissions and are Greenguard Gold Certified. It is important to look for this certification from manufactures because in an increasingly muddled green marketplace, GREENGUARD Certification provides an advantage by serving as a health-based differentiator. Products GREENGUARD Certified for low-chemical emissions can contribute to healthier indoor environments.
The HDPE material is also naturally germ resistant. Testing conducted by SiTU Bio sciences LLC. by ISO 22196 methods show that after 24 hours, 98.4% of MRSA bacteria died off the surface of HDPE plastic without the use of any cleaning solutions.
