Touch free soap and towel dispensers can often be tailored to reduce product over-use. In addition to a more upscale look, automatic dispensers improve hand hygiene by reducing cross contamination in public washrooms. Buildings which suffer from over-consumption of product are also now able to control the appropriate amount of soap or towels which is dispensed to patrons.
Touch Free Hand Soap Dispensers:
Hand soap dispensers can be programmed to dispense a controlled amount of soap to patrons. This conserves the amount of soap and enables cost savings by prolonged life between refills and maintenance visits.
Did you know that switching to a foam soap could save you money as well? Foam refills are up to 8 times more spreadable than traditional liquid, which reduces the quantity of product needed. In a recent study facilities also experienced a huge savings in water consumption when using foam soap. When using foam soap, patrons use 16% less water than they would using liquid soap. This means that for every 100 people using foam soap, your facility can experience saving up to 14,790 gallons of water per year.
Touch Free Towel Dispensers:
With folded towels or manual crank dispensers, patrons have the option of using as much paper as they choose. However with automated dispensers facility managers have the option of controlling the length of paper which is dispensed. Most dispensers allow you to choose a 8, 12, or 16 inch length. If multiple sheets of paper are being dispensed, you also have a time delay option. Often there is a pause in between sheets, patrons realize that one towel is adequate. By utilizing a longer time delay, it can save a high traffic business 25% in paper usage.
It may seem like a small change, but businesses who choose to take advantage of this opportunity often experience a quick return on investment in declining overuse of soap, towels, and water consumption.
