U.S. Courts Design Guide
See Table 6.1 for the specific size of judges' robing rooms and associated areas.
The following is a list of sample standard level finishes for judges' robing rooms.
These finishes represent a quality standard or benchmark and are not intended to

minimize incidental catching of robe cuffs. All finishes must be compatible with the
overall architectural design of the building.

Maintenance costs and life-cycle cost benefits
of finish material must be considered.

If a partial-height wood wainscot is provided, finish the upper wall surface
with either paint, or Type II vinyl, fabric, or polyolefin wall covering.
Provide acoustical treatment, detailing, or material as required to meet noise
