What height do my vanity units need to be?

As a guide we say 650 for nursery, 750 for junior and 850 for older but as they are made to measure if you would like them to be any other we can do so.

Do I need waterproof cubicles in a toilet?

Yes if you think there may be accidents children playing with the water or the cleaners use industrial mops.

Are your cubicle hinges anti-trap?

Yes of course, safety first!

What height do I need my doors and partitions?

What is the minimum cubicle depth?

What is the minimum cubicle width?

750mm, remember that although the children are tiny they often need help in the form of an adult, and also cleaners need room to clean.

Do you have vinyls/digital prints that can be put on the cubicles?

Yes we have selection of vinyls to choose from, however we can also now print directly onto your cubicle doors, which have a much longer lasting effect (Subject To Price & Availability).
