Dispensers win design award

Two smart dispensers for Tork napkins have earned SCA a design award. The Tork Xpressnap Image Line of dispensers made by SCA received a 2014 Red Dot Design Award for their smart, curved design and choice of attractive casings.

“Most napkin dispensers in quick service restaurants, cafés and hotel bars have a functional, utilitarian appearance,” said SCA product and segment manager, Rebecca Blake. “This can be at odds with the overall impression that the managers of any high-profile establishment are trying to create. Our Tork Xpressnap Image Line dispensers are available in a solid aluminium housing and in a smart walnut option. The use of these premium materials gives the dispensers a stylish appearance which is much more in keeping with an upmarket eatery.”

The Tork Xpressnap Image Line of dispensers is the latest addition to the company's Tork Xpress napkin dispenser family. Other units in the range come in a choice of three colours and are available in countertop, tabletop and wall-mounted formats as well as in-counter and snack versions. All Tork napkin dispensers provide a highly cost-effective and sustainable solution to napkin dispensing.

“Most napkin dispensers allow diners to pull out a large clump of napkins - even if they are trying to take only one,” continued Blake. “All Tork Xpressnap dispensers are designed to give out napkins one at a time - and this reduces usage by at least 25% compared with traditional napkin dispensers. One-at-a-time dispensing cuts product costs as well as the amount of waste produced in restaurants, which is a major sustainability advantage. And hygiene levels are also improved since each diner only touches the napkin they use.”
