If you are a keen person who loves observing things, I guess you have realized that many public toilets have their doors not long to touch the floor. Have you ever wondered why this is so or tried to research on it? Very few people have bothered to know the reason. In this article, I will give you some reasons as to why the doors are made halfway.

    1. It helps to easily know if the toilet is occupied or vacant. It is an embarrassing thing to walk through all the rooms knocking to see if someone is inside. This way you won't create any disturbance by knocking and keep the place orderly.

    2. The doors are cheap compared to full doors. Given that the public toilets require different installments to function properly, the end costs will be very high. The half doors are thus used as they are cheaper.

    3. The doors are used to fight bad smell. Many people use the toilets and they can easily be mishandled. Aeration is the easiest and quickest way to get rid of the bad smell. It is also cheaper as compared to buying air fresheners.

    4. Half doors help to curb bad behavior. Many times cases of indecency have been reported in public toilets. With this doors, one can easily notice when something strange is taking place and action can be taken. People won't also think of misbehaving because they know someone could be watching them from the outside.

    5. Half doors make the cleaning process for the toilets easy. This we can all agree to. Cleanliness is of essence in the area and is done all the time. The doors therefore make it easier than doors that reach the floor.
