New from Tork is a freestanding countertop dispenser designed to give out quality folded hand towels. The Tork Xpress Counter Top Multifold Hand Towel dispenser is suitable for hotels and restaurants, hygiene-critical healthcare and food preparation washrooms, and offices. It gives out large, absorbent towels that are dispensed one at a time to prevent over-consumption and cross-contamination.
“In an style-led washroom where the décor is designed to impress, it may not always be the best solution to affix dispensers to the wall,” said SCA product and segment manager, Charlotte Branwhite. “And in some cases there may simply be insufficient space for a wall-mounted dispenser. Some hoteliers and restaurateurs supply individual textile towels for guests' use, and these are then dropped into a receptacle for laundering. However, besides the added expense involved in cleaning the towels, they may also be vulnerable to pilferage by unscrupulous washroom visitors.”
She says the dispenser also offers cleaning and hygiene benefits over traditional textile towel basket systems: “The dispenser is significantly more hygienic than towels provided in open baskets since the dispenser protects the towels from moisture and contamination before use. It also helps to prevent washroom mess since the towels are taken straight out of the dispenser, used to dry the hands and then thrown away.”
Branwhite believes the Tork Xpress Countertop Multifold Hand Towel Dispenser to be the first of its kind in the UK and Ireland. Available in white and black, the dispenser is simple to load and has a refill indicator for ease of maintenance. The Tork Xpress Countertop Multifold Hand Towel Dispenser is compatible with Tork Xpress Multifold hand towels featuring QuickDry for optimum comfort and efficacy.
The new dispenser forms part of a complete range of Tork washroom dispensers aimed at smart, stylish and hygiene-critical washrooms - the Tork Elevation range. Also available in the range are a selection of jumbo, mini-jumbo, mid-size and folded toilet paper dispensers, foam and liquid skin care options, air fresheners and bins.
