When outfitting a building’s bathrooms, bathroom supplies can be selected for their appearance as well as for their efficiency. Many materials are available for fixtures such as toilets and sinks, with ceramics being the most common, though alternatives are available.
Other fixtures such as taps and drains are often made out of stainless steel due to this material’s resistance to the formation of rust which is often exasperated by cleaning chemicals. Other common bathroom supplies include wall sections that form individual stalls. These walls and doors do not typically extend all the way to the floor in order to facilitate the sanitising of the bathroom by cleaning staff.
As a means of improving building efficiency, bathrooms may be outfitted with devices that control the use of water and electricity. Motion sensors can be installed in bathrooms so that lights turn off when they are not occupied. Similar devices can also be used to control the flow of water at the sink tap so that it may not be left on. This also allows bathroom users to operate the sink without touching anything, preventing the spread of germs.
