Floor Mounted & Over-Head Braced (FMOB)

General Information:

FMOB is the most common install configuration seen in commercial restrooms.  This is due to the strength it provides, being anchored to the floor, walls, and head-rail, while still being budget conscious.  Floor mounting is concealed within a "shoe" and the same pieces, called pilasters or stiles, are attached at their tops to the continuous head-rail, which is ran back and braced to the walls.  Extra strength can be provided with "return" runs of head-rail over the width of ADA alcove stalls.
