stainless steel fixtures

We have been asked to bid on a train station bathroom fixture replacement with STAINLESS STEEL FIXTURES. The toilet has to be floor mounted, 10" roughing, 1-1/2" top spud, exposed flushometer, integral seat. The lavatory approximately 19"X17", wallhung, push button faucet, exposed trap and supplies. They don't have much of a vandalism problem, but they are a hub railway station with only 1 bathroom and the fixtures are literally wearing out from use. We have looked at Acorn engineering, Penal-Ware and Bradley to no avail. hoping you folks can give me some guidance.
Thanks
Steve Paul

    Steve,

    can`t say that I have looked for much SS fixtures other than institutional installs, but here`s a few links I found.
    Bet the price-tag on these are high!

    Steve,

    can`t say I have looked for many SS fixtures except for institutional, but here`s a few other links I found. Maybe there is something here.
    I bet these come with a hefty price-tag.

    How does a solid porcelain fixture "wear out" unless it's vandalized? I thought they were essentially eternal with only the things attached to them subject to ordinary (or extraordinary) wear.

    S.S. Fixtures

    Good question Mike.
    They have had to replace toilets on average 2-3 times a year due to cracking at the seat hinge holes. We imagine it is due to seat slamming, that is why we want the seat to be integral with the fixture. The S.S. lav is the station Masters idea, who am I to ignore his request to improve the economy?

    A unisex bathroom? If not is the problem in either the men's or women's or both?

    I think I've seen prison s/s toilets with integral seats on TV, but you might want to verify that such are acceptable/legal for use in public environments. Cleaning can't be easy and while urine from a healthy person is sterile, I can't imagine sitting on a toilet with an integral seat in a public men's room.

    The 10" rough-in requirement with a s/s toilet (regardless of whether or not it has an integral seat) may be a deal breaker.

    This WC from Neo-Metro will work. I'd contact them to verify, just to be safe.

    Link not working for me. Sometimes "deep" links have problems.
