Special-Lite Announces the National Launch of Its New Toilet Partitions
Press release date: May 1, 2013
DECATUR, MI — Special-Lite, Inc. is pleased to announce its plans to expand its Special-Lite® Toilet Partitions nationally due to their regional success.
The Special-Lite® Toilet Partitions, designed to withstand heavy use and frequent abuse of restrooms in facilities such as K-12 schools, universities, dormitories, stadiums, parks, rest areas and retail facilities, were initially launched in five Midwest states.
“We are extremely pleased with the positive responses we have received from our customers,” said Dow Ruch, Vice President Sales & Marketing. “We initially offered the toilet partitions to schools and other public facilities in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio that were close to our manufacturing facility. The affirmative comments we have received regarding their strength, durability and easy clean-up have prompted us to expand our product on a national basis.”
Noting that many of their customers expressed a need for a more dent-, scratch-, stain- and tamper-resistant restroom partition, Special-Lite also developed their new partition panels for easy removal of typical graffiti markings.
“It is important to point out that if buildings appear clean and well maintained, people are more likely to respect the facilities,” adds Ruch. “Because our panels are impervious to water and will not rust, swell or delaminate, even hose-down cleaning poses no long-term problems.”
Each Special-Lite® Toilet Partition is custom fabricated for each individual installation and carries the same GREENGUARD certification as their FRP doors.
