How Occupancy Indicator Locks Ensure Privacy in Commercial Restrooms?

Written by on October 31, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

One of the biggest drawbacks of commercial restrooms is its public location. We all want to feel safe and protect our privacy when using a restroom outside of our homes. And when we use a restroom in a public building or commercial, ensuring privacy becomes an even bigger concern.

Over the years, developers have come up with various solutions to this problem. However, the best and most feasible solution to this problem is the use of indicator locks.

Indicator locks are designed to indicate the status of the room. They can tell you whether the room is occupied or empty by showing signs that read “In Use” and “Vacant” respectively. With indicator locks you can make sure that a cubicle in a public restroom is vacant or not. This makes ensuring the privacy of users easier and smoother.

What are the benefits of using commercial restroom locks with indicators?

 Maintain Security in Restrooms

One of the most important things when designing a public bathroom is not its design or layout but its privacy and security features. While most commercial restrooms have more than one cubicle, there are some that have only one or two cubicles for restroom purposes.

With indicator locks, you can easily check if the restroom is in use or empty. This helps avoid awkward situations for users waiting outside. Plus, those using the restroom are also safe in the knowledge that they are not likely to be disturbed while using the facilities.

More Durable and Lasting Protection                                                           

Another benefit of using commercial restroom door locks is that these commercial grade locks are much more durable and reliable than regular locks. Commercial grade locks are made of the best quality materials with the latest designs and finishes. Not only do they look good but they also last longer.

Another factor that aids their longevity is the indicator attached to the locks. Due to the status indicator, the locks are used less. When people see the “In Use” indicator, they will not twitch the latch or turn the lock. Hence the lock is used less and can last longer!

Ensure Privacy Protection                                                                

As the main purpose of inventing these locks was to protect privacy, these locks are designed to do exactly that! These locks indicate whether the restroom is empty or occupied. This is achieved by showing signs of “Vacant” or “Empty” in green color when the room is empty and signs of “In Use” in red color when the room is occupied.

When users see these signs they will know whether they should use the room or wait. This ensures that the privacy of the user is not violated. And those using the restroom are also not worried about anyone invading their privacy at inopportune moments.

Improve Commercial Restroom Experience

Most commercial and public restrooms are lacking in many ways which makes the experience of using them an unpleasant memory for many. The main reason for this was the lack of privacy and the resulting awkwardness and discomfort.

However, with occupancy indicator locks, this lack of privacy issue is easily resolved. Now when people use public restrooms, they can easily tell if a stall is occupied or vacant and can thus avoid awkward encounters with other users. This little change vastly improves the commercial restroom experience for most people.

With the help of occupancy indicator locks, people can feel safe while using restrooms even in a public area. This feature is a big advantage that can make even public restrooms a haven of safety and comfort for the common people.
