You need to go to "specialty equipment" then "toilet room specialties" under
the Revit web library. http://revit.autodesk.com/library/html/

Note that this library features 2d and 3d families. On toilet partitions,
you should almost always use the 2d variety unless you're going to model the
toilet room. Normal 3d families take up more space (and computing time) in
the model. Use 3d for anything you're going to show in a 3d view, but 2d is
fine for back-of-the-house spaces.

Family locations aren't as intuitive as they might be. For example, cased
openings are not necessarily classified as doors. Until you edit these
families and change their classification to doors, you can't schedule cased
opening frames with your other openings because you can't tag them with a
door tag.

Second item: Whenever you customize a stock Revit family, take care to
rename it. Revit never erases families on an install, but it does overwrite
families of the same name if they exist in the install location. Generally,
you need to reinstall the stock families for each major release, but not for
releases of new builds within the same release.

In addition to the official revit library on the web, there are a number of
other family locations such as www.revitcity.com.

Walls are system families. You create new walls in a project by modifying
one that comes with Revit. Wall creation is very simple. You can create a
file of all walls, like we have done with all our standard wall types, and
then copy them into new projects as needed.

Toilet partitions can be families, or can be a new wall type, set up to be
steel or phenolic resin, or your material of choice, and to the right
thickness.

In general with Revit, we try to mirror the methods used to construct a real
building. System families (wall, floor, ceiling, ...) usually represent
elements assembled on site to fit a specific size and shape determined by
thecontext. If the element is manufactured off site, purchased as a discreet
item, and installed, a loaded family is usually a better method. Since
toilet partitions are a manufactured item built to a pre-determined size,
they are supplied as a loadable family. If you used a Wall, toilet
partitions would show up in your wall takeoffs, tag as if they were walls,
and add noise to your list of wall types. They would attempt to clean up to
other walls, create rooms, and other undesirable behaviors.
