The trend for enhanced security was the driving force behind the design of Privada, winner of a 2017 Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) IDEA® award in the category of Commercial and Industrial Products. Engineered with interlocking, peek-proof panels that configure to form standard and ADA-compliant stalls, Privada gets rid of the sight lines typical of ordinary toilet partition systems. This means that users enjoy a heightened level of privacy and safety that, in turn, improves their physical and emotional comfort. Coupled with a timeless, modern look, the system brings a level of elegance and civility to the commercial restroom experience, as well as a competitive edge to its maker.
The product’s stainless steel latch was recently enhanced with an innovative hands-free option that allows users to both lock and unlock the door with a quick flick of the wrist, forearm, elbow, or knee. Both hygienic and accessible, it offers users of different abilities more ways to secure and exit the stall.
