commercial toilet v. residential

Is there any difference in a commercial toilet and a residential toilet, am looking at converting a warehouse and need to add toilets-want to make sure I'm putting the right ones in.

thanks

Public use or private use, this will tell you what has to be there.

The usage of the toilet will determine the number you need. Depends on several factors not limited to number of employees and even the sex of the employees. (Urinals count as so many toilets, can't remember off top of my head.)

Difference in toilets in what I see in your message, if you want to install "commercial" toilets with the flushometer valve, (no tank); you will need to look at the supply lines for water. If tanked fixtures are used, this can have an impact on sizing.

There are many factors to look at here and you really need to have a local, licensed plumber go over what you want to do. You can get ball park stuff here with more detail from your end, but you will have local issues to address.

More questions, ask away and someone will answer them.

I didn't think about the sizing issue on the tanked toilets. I do have a plumber coming in eventually trying to do a pre planning budget.

thanks again.
