Wet System
This is the traditional form of designing a restroom. Generally the structure is a combination of brick walls and tiles with the needed accessories. One of the major disadvantages of wet system is that the partition walls and doors are always sitting on the floor hence these give way to water, dust, dirt and stain to settle.

Dry System
This is one of the most economical and contemporary concepts in restroom designing. The Partitions and Doors never touch the ground as a gap is maintained between the floor & the partition.

Disadvantages of Wet System
• Sits on the ground which makes cleaning very difficult
• Dirt settles leaving stains around the bottom
• Tile designs can go out of production making replacement difficult
• The grouting joints are porous and therefore absorb pungent smell
• Thickness of wall is 6' x 6", resulting in loss of 3 sq.ft area
• Load of the building is high
• No natural ventilation

Advantages of Dry System
• Economy of Space: Partitions are only 12mm thick as compared with 150mm brick wall
• Economy of Load: Much lower as compared with brick wall
• Installation Time: 4 cubicles per day i.e. approximately one floor per day
• Tidiness: No wet work required
• Air Ventilation: Top and bottom gaps are provided in the design
• Cleaning the Floor Area Very Effective: No corners to accumulate dust
• Range of Colours: Choose from a range of colours available in accessories as well as boards

Grade 304 is the standard '18/8' stainless; it is the most versatile and most widely used stainless steel, available in a wider range of products, forms and finishes than any other. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. For restroom applications it is common to use special '304DDQ' (Deep Drawing Quality) variant. Grade 304 is readily brake or roll formed into a variety of components for applications in the industrial, architectural and transportation fields. Grade 304 also has outstanding welding characteristics and does not require post weld annealing when welding thin sections.

SX 316 is an improved version of SX 304, with the addition of molybdenum and slightly higher nickel content. The resultant composition of SX 316 gives the steel much increased corrosion resistance in many aggressive environments. Molybdenum usage makes the steel more resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride-contaminated media, sea water and acetic acid vapours. The lower rate of general corrosion in mildly corrosive environments give the steel good atmospheric corrosion resistance in polluted marine atmospheres. SX 316 offers higher strength and better creep-resistance at higher temperatures and at sub zero temperature it possesses excellent mechanical and corrosion properties. When there is a danger of corrosion in the heat-affected zones of weldments, the low-carbon variety SX 316L should be used. SX 316 Ti, the titanium-stabilized version, is used for its resistance to sensitization during prolonged exposure in the Latch lock options are available.
