WASHROOM


good alternative since this holds the equivalent of up to 15 conventional rolls, which means that the paper supply is unlikely to run out between maintenance checks. However if the washroom is only serviced once per day the cleaner may well replace those rolls that have been almost used up. He or she will then discard the remainder to avoid the problem of toilet paper running out before the next maintenance check. This can prove wasteful and lead to increased costs.


High-capacity soap dispensers will also prevent the supply running out between maintenance checks. Tork Spray Soap, for example, offers 3,000 shots of soap per refill which is more than three times the capacity of a liquid soap dispenser of the same size. The fact that the unit gives out controlled doses of soap means that the supply is unlikely to run out between maintenance checks.


Hand drying should also be quick and seamless to create minimal queuing. In a busy environment such as a shopping centre, service station or airport, as many as 300 hand dries may be required between each service interval. In high-traffic environments where there are


regular “peak” periods – such as the intermission or half-time period in theatres and stadiums – this figure can rise to 400-plus hand dries.


Air dryers are sometimes installed in such environments, but these lead to queues since air dryers – no matter how fast they are - take longer to dry the hands than a paper towel. Air dryers also require the washroom user to remain fixed in one position for several seconds at a time. However, where hand towels are provided, the washroom visitor may take a hand towel from the dispenser and dry their hands as they go, leaving more space free for the next visitor.


In a busy washroom where several hand dryers are supplied, the noise of multiple machines might also be considered unacceptably high. In a theatre or stadium, for example, washroom users may wish to discuss the performance, the match, or their plans for travelling home – and this may not be possible if the sound of high-speed dryers drowns out all conversation.


Paper towels should be housed in long-lasting systems to prevent the towels from running out during intermissions, half time and at other busy periods. An example of a long- lasting hand towel system is the Tork Matic®


Hand Towel Roll which holds


sufficient paper for more than 400 washroom visitors.


Bins should be placed near washroom exits to allow visitors to dry their hands on their way out and discard their towel as they leave. This will keep up the flow of washroom traffic since there will be no need for visitors to stand still for any longer than the time it takes to wash their hands.


It is therefore perfectly possible to deliver hygiene at high speeds. But to do so you will require a well-designed washroom, smart dispensing systems and a constant supply of consumables. Together these will help to create an efficient space where visitors are made to feel welcome - but are not encouraged to linger.
