Contractor help


Hi guys, I'm hoping one of yo contractors can help me out with a question I have.

I'm building out a bridal boutique and i need to meet IBC 1210.2 requiring:

"Walls and partitions within 2 feet of urinals and water closets shall have a smooth, hard, non-absorbent surface, to a height of 4 feet...the material used in such walls shall be of a type that is not adversely affected by moisture."

I usually use FRP for this but doesn't look good enough for a boutique restroom. Tile is out of the budget.

My question is, what else meets this requirement? My plumber said he has seen painted wood wainscoting used but I can't believe that would meet the requirements. Then again I don't see how grout meets the requirement.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Ben

The world is full of powder coated sheet metal toilet partitions. What would be wrong with something manufactured for the purpose?

To bad tile is out of the question---anything cheap looks utilitarian that I've ever seen.

I was thinking about buying the completed assembled panel but I suppose you can buy just coated panel inserts. If that's the case the cost starts plummeting fairly quick.

Ah, I see, I just need the thin sheets that glue to the wall, not those big stall dividers.

Also, the owner may or may not be...but definitely happens to also be my wife which means if I do the labor it is much less (read free) than if I bring in one of my guys.

It'll still cost you!
