The number one reason to install touch-free technology in your office bathrooms is the protection they offer your staff and clients from contracting and spreading germs. By eliminating the need to touch handles and dispensing mechanisms, you’ll help reduce the cross contamination often experienced with manually operated paper and soap dispensers.
Touchless Soap Dispensers Lower the Risk for Cross Contamination
Automatic soap dispensers are designed to prevent contact between users and the redistribution of germs. Built in sensors automatically dispense the right amount of soap directly to the hand, with no transfer of germs from previous users, nor on to the next person.
There are several reasons why automatic paper towel dispensers are indispensable
With the concern about the pandemic, it’s important that we wash our hands several times throughout the day. This means that cleaning crews will have to fill towel dispensers more often. To prevent those extra trips to refill the manual dispensers, crews may overfill the canisters. Towels are then wasted as a user rips at the paper trying to retrieve a full sheet on which to dry their hands. During the process their fingers will probably touch the outside of the container, picking up new bacteria and leaving some for the next person. If the dispenser has a lever that has to be pushed to release a towel, that’s another surface where germs can be shared.
The dispensers adjustable motion sensors help reduce paper waste and assures easy distribution of towels by letting you:
- Vary sheet length
- Delay paper advancement, until the user is ready for the next sheet
- Minimize the exchange of germs do to surface contact
Although hands-free dispensers offer convenience and a contemporary look, more importantly, they limit the number of surfaces your clients and employees have to touch, greatly reducing the risk of spreading germs.
