The Tork Image Design Line of dispensers from SCA fills a gap in the market for a washroom system that combines smartness and style with a practical, smooth operation.

The brushed stainless steel dispensers are designed to raise the tone of the washroom in environments such as high-end banks, legal firms, financial institutions, hotels and restaurants.

Unlike most stainless steel units, Tork Image Design Line dispensers have gently curved fascias offset with a sleek black trim. They also offer a high level of practicality since they are easy to load, easy to clean and have no sharp corners where dirt can collect.

The brushed stainless steel surfaces are treated with a fingermark- resistant coating and each dispenser has a discreet clear panel on the side to indicate refill levels. The line comprises two soap dispensers, an interfold hand towel dispenser and a jumbo toilet roll dispenser plus a matching bin, facial tissue dispenser and a coat hook to complete the streamlined effect.

Developed for use with the new line is Tork Luxury Soft Foam Soap, with its ultra-creamy lather and sophisticated musky perfume, and Tork Xpress Multifold Extra Soft Hand Towel, which is embossed with the distinctive Tork leaf pattern.

The Tork Image Design Line – which won the Purus design award at the 2015 CMS Berlin – will appeal to architects who will be able to incorporate the dispensers into their upmarket facilities at the design stage.

UK TOILET MAP British Toilet Association

The British Toilet Association (BTA) has, along with Changing Places, as well as the Mencap and Pamis organisations, launched a new online map aimed at helping disabled individuals, particularly those with profound and multiple learning difficulties, to find their nearest accessible public toilet facilities.

Unlike previous toilet mapping systems that simply throw pins on a map from a database that hasn’t been looked at or updated in some time, the BTA map aims to provide a more in-depth, accurate point of reference for those that may need to find accessible away-from-home washrooms.

The new system has been designed to allow the BTA to accurately position pins on a map, and to then apply constant updates with relevant information on opening times, internal provision and contact details, as well as an image of the facility in question, so users can easily spot the toilet that they are looking for.

The site has also incorporated a route planner into this system, to allow users to quickly find an easy way to their nearest facility while out and about. This is particularly useful if they are travelling between various locations or holiday destinations and are in an area that is unfamiliar to them.

While the project is still in its infancy, it has already reached more than 100,000 people, and the BTA are already hard at work to develop the map further, with the intention of launching a mobile app in early 2016. VOTE NOW| 29
