It is psychological but it works. A recessed duorescent fixture with two 40-watt tubes for each two or three stalls is recommended.

Toilet- Fixtures

Water closets should be equipped With open front seats, without covers and silent action fiush valves rather than the tank type. The water pressure should be checked to be certain that it will be sufficient to operate the hush valves.

Urinals should be of the stall type and should have finished sides so they may be installed with at least 4-inch clearance for cleaning.

Lavatories should be about 18 inches in size With self-closing faucets to prevent waste of water and the possibility of being left turned on and resulting in a iiood. Lavatories should be provided with a well and dispenser for liquid soap. In some instances the soap well is cast in the body of the lavatory, otherwise an opening should be provided for attaching a metal container and dispenser.

Mirrors in metal frames and recessed in the tile wall should be installed over the lavatories. It Will be necessary to

Ventilation

The toilets should be mechanically ventilated by a separate exhaust fan system, with exhaust grille in the ceiling, and also in the wall over each water closet and urinal.

The door to the toilet should be provided with a louvre or be undercut.

Water-Proofing

If the toilet room is located above a finished space on the immediate lower level, a membrane water-proofing should be installed on the rough slab or iiooring and turned up 6 inches on the toilet room walls.
