Floor to Ceiling partitions provide an extra measure of stability in restrooms with ceiling heights of ten feet or less. Even if extra stability is not required, this style can be used to fulfill the overall design objectives of a room.
The ten-foot height recommendation stems from the fact that at heights over ten feet, some pilaster configurations may begin to flex. The height at which flexing can occur depends on the particular material being used.
Installation of Floor to Ceiling partitions requires backing in the ceiling. This backing can be wood, but it must be structurally anchored.
This style is not compatible with suspended ceilings.
