Top of the class

As classrooms begin to fill up again, Northwood get to work ensuring school washrooms are equipped to serve pupils.

It has long been highlighted that how well school buildings are designed and maintained, as well as the washroom environments within them, ultimately have a strong impact on pupils’ wellbeing and happiness.

A poorly maintained washroom that cannot cope with the high demands of a busy educational establishment will no doubt undermine any efforts to create a wider welcoming and creative space where pupils can learn, develop and grow.

With September marking the beginning of a new academic term for schools around the country, there is a need to ensure that all washrooms are properly equipped to cope with increasing demands. Waste, misuse and damage are key factors to bear in mind, compounded by the fact that many school washroom environments are used at key times during a school’s timetable, meaning high traffic in a very short space of time.

Step into a school washroom in 2019 and you’ll find a raft of system innovations that have lifted and improved overall building conditions, whilst also meeting the many needs of the school’s pupils and promoting good quality hygiene standards.

Leading the way is the North Shore premium proprietary system range of washroom dispensers and consumables from Northwood Hygiene Products.

It’s because of North Shore’s many benefits – comprising low maintenance, exceptional cost-in-use and hygiene – that more and more schools are choosing the range as their preferred modern washroom system.

Some of the most wasted resources within education are toilet paper and paper towels. It’s knowing how to limit this misuse and waste that can have a huge impact to the success of a school washroom. North Shore has been developed specifically to address these issues, offering a quality dispenser range that boasts a secure locking system to prevent theft, and a unique dispensing system that prevents overuse by ensuring towels are dispensed in

52 | DISPOSABLES economic lengths for controlled dispensing.

Added to this, North Shore’s toilet paper dispensers have been specifically designed to ensure 100% of the paper is used before being able to use the next roll.

Unfortunately, misuse and waste within an educational environment can take on many forms aside from just excess toilet paper and paper towel usage. System damage and anti-social behaviour can ultimately yield high maintenance costs if the system within the washroom isn’t manufactured to a high standard. North Shore’s entire range is constructed from extremely durable acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, minimising any damage that may be caused and giving school facilities managers and janitorial staff peace of mind.

Additionally, in a world where sustainability is very much at the top of the educational agenda, North Shore proudly carries the EU

Ecolabel Certificate across all recycled paper and a selection of soap products. This means that Northwood’s manufacturing processes have been scrutinised to meet the EU’s

stringent ‘Green Guidelines’, and maintain the highest of quality standards.

At the heart of North Shore is its signature four roll dispenser, the Orbit. Designed exclusively by Northwood, it fits seamlessly within any educational washroom environment, boasting a capacity of up to 5,000 sheets of toilet paper, demonstrating huge cost-in-use benefits as well as low maintenance.

Complementing the Orbit, North Shore comprises a compact, infinity paper Side-by-Side toilet roll dispenser, high capacity Mechanical Hands-Free roll towel dispenser, a no-touch ultra-hygienic Hybrid roll towel system, a Micro Folded hand towel dispenser and a soap dispenser to provide educational establishments with a full end-to-end washroom solution.

Available in a choice of three colourways – Ocean Blue, Ice White and Midnight Black – it’s easy to see why, for educational washrooms, North Shore is top of the class.
