My office is currently debating how we should model toilet partitions in our projects.  The two options currently being used are:  Toilet Partition families (components) and a Toilet Partition curtain wall system.  Has anyone looked into both of these and could offer some guidance/insight of the positives and negatives of each approach?

Not sure about which is best, but here's some families to take a look at.  http://arcat.com/bim/divs/bim_10.shtml

I'm sure more experienced users can offer further advise. Let us know what you decide to do.

A toilet partition family as a specialty would sure be nicer. The family could have a couple of instance based grips so that it would be parametric. 

 

I would not use curtain walls.  People like to use those because of the automatic features but that will get you into troble in working drawings.

I've always just done them as conventional walls and doors.  I find this method to be the quickest and most flexible for on the fly changes.  That's because we generally find in our projects that they occassionally need to vary for different circumstances.  I guess it depends really on the type of work you do as well.

In my experience, I agree with Mr. Spot...it's faster,easier and more flexible to modify.

Just goes to show that a different way of thinking might lead you down a digfferent path.  We had always used a family with all the partition walls and doors.  I can see where walls and doors may be easier to place initially but if you want to show them in section and elevation, you would have to edit the profile or modify with 2d.  Overhead braced partitions would be a problem this way as well....  I'm still not sold.

We use walls as we'll, its more flexible. Although, you may have to change the lineweight with the linework tool to achieve something readable. These walls are too thin to use the same lineweight as typical partitions.

You can save the height and base offset info in the Type Comments field and create a toilet door that is also offset.

My biggest problem with using a partition family is that you cannot place a wall hosted element (toilet tissue dispenser) on the partition wall (it's a mass not a wall) and we want to use all wall hosted elements whenever possible.  But the graphics of using a basic wall is a pain to have to switch.  Can you assign a certain linewight to a wall type so one wouldn't have to change it with the lineweight tool each time?

Hi Chris!!!

I think you first have to see some samples from the manufacturer you are going to get services. Toilet partrition families would depend the area and location of your office. I think you should go gor a best manufacturer and supplier which can suggest you some better about all these. TPH supply is the one i would always prefer to go for better toilet partitions and reconstruction. I'm attaching some samples which i got from tph supply..You could see for some better options.

Hope this helps.

I have a good experience with TPH http://tphsupply.com/. Their service and the materials used are quite superb! I also agree with most of the comments here. It's best if you choose the most simplest contemporary design since this can be changed and replaced easily. Low maintenance designs are economical and can really save you money.
