Over 50 years experience manufacturing the finest quality toilet partition in the industry. We at General Partitions Mfg. Corp. are proud of our reputation. We fabricate and ship on time. Our customer service is handled by people who care and can answer your questions. At General Partitions, we manufacture toilet partitions not excuses.

Custom Designs

We work with the architect and owner to incorporate the latest materials and design features for a given product. We will work up a cost base for estimating purposes and assist in engineering the project.

Construction

General's standard panel with Ribcore sound deadening reinforcement is offered as a standard at no extra charge. Sheet metal skins are bonded under pressure, to each cell of the core with an adhesive impervious to moisture. Lighter weight, greater strength and permanently flat panels are provided through this type of construction.

General Partitions Mfg. Corp. guarantees all work supplied or installed against defects resulting from the use of inferior materials, hardware, or workmanship, for a period of one (1) year from the date of final completion, when properly stored, handled, and maintained under normal usage. Stainless Steel, S.P.C. (Solid Phenolic Core), H.D.P. (High Density Polymer), F.R.P. (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) are all guaranteed for fifteen (15) years.

Advantages

We have over 50 years of experience manufacturing the finest quality toilet partition in the industry. In its corporate life, General Partitions has remained one of the few organizations of any size in our industry which is internally owned and operated.

We believe that the key to success in our industry is quality and service. Since toilet partitions are one of the last products to be installed in a building, it is vital that shipping schedules be maintained. Our policy has been to carefully establish realistic schedules and stick to them.

We are quite pleased with our statistics. 95% of our powder coated steel orders shipped on schedule or sooner, and 98% of them shipped within one day of the schedule date. Over the years, this has become one of the features that has enhanced our reputation as reliable and progressive leaders in our field.

Construction Advantages

  1. General's metal panel skins are bonded under pressure to each cell of the sound deadening Ribcore with an adhesive that is impervious to moisture. General utilizes a tight 3/4" cell size to ensure greater bond and rigidity to the partitions.
  2. On all metal toilet partitions, corner clips are mechanically attached over a locking bar giving greatly increased strength (a double thickness of steel at corners). This construction eliminates a weak corner which is welded and then ground. Not only is the corner clip stronger than a welded and grounded corner, but it eliminates the problem of removing the zinc coating and most of the welded bead at the corner during the old fashioned grinding process. The welded corner then becomes a susceptible area for cracking and rusting. If a corner on a panel or door should be damaged, either in transit or in the field, it can be inexpensively replaced with a new corner, as opposed to scrapping the panel because of the welded corners which are not replaceable.

Packaging

We have designed a special type of packing carton that we refer to as the "cellular poly crate," which has proven to further reduce freight damaged material. 99% of the powder coated steel toilet partitions orders arrived to the jobsite damage-free. We know that this is of utmost importance to contractors and building owners, because the order can be installed and finished in a timely manner, rather than returning to the jobsite later to replace damaged material.

Corner Reinforcements

Used on all steel partition at exposed corners. Mechanically fused to the edges. Doubles the strength of the corner. Also allows field repairs if and when required. Eliminates welding and grinding of the corners which removes the protective zinc coating as well as part of the metal edge.
