Giving washrooms the 'wow factor'

New to the market is the Tork Image Design Line of dispensers which is suited for the upmarket washrooms of banks, legal firms, financial institutions, and high-end hotels and restaurants. The dispensers team stainless steel with sleek black plastic to provide a combination of design and function.

“Our new line very much fills a gap in the market,” said SCA senior product manager, Stephen Wright. “There are plenty of stainless steel dispensers out there but most of them tend to have a boxy, functional look. The brushed stainless steel fascias and black trim of our slimline Tork Image Design Line dispensers gives them that immediate 'wow factor' impression we intended to create. And besides being aesthetically pleasing they are also exceptionally functional, ensuring that washrooms run smoothly while also looking good.”

The Tork Image Design Line of dispensers comprises a curved Tork Xpress Interfold Hand Towel Dispenser; a Tork Jumbo Toilet Roll unit, and manual and sensor-operated versions of the Tork Foam Soap dispenser.
“For that added touch of luxury there is also a stainless steel Tork Facial Tissue box plus a stylish bin and a matching coat hook to create a seamless washroom design,” continued Wright. “The beauty of the dispensers is that they look good against any wall whether it is plain, papered with quirky prints, painted in deep hues, or colour-washed in muted pastels.”

All stainless steel surfaces are treated with a fingermark-resistant coating. Each dispenser has a discreet clear panel on the side to indicate refill levels, while the jumbo roll unit has a stub roll facility and a brake to prevent over-consumption.

The line won the CMS Purus Award in the washroom hygiene category at CMS Berlin this autumn.

Tork has added a luxurious new soap and an extra soft hand towel as refills for the dispensers. The soap has a silken feel and produces an ultra-creamy lather for added luxury. Tork Xpress Multifold Extra Soft Hand Towel has a cushioned, ultra-soft surface and is embossed with the distinctive Tork leaf pattern.

“We are very proud of the Tork Image Design Line since it is a new departure in the washroom market,” concluded Wright. “The attractive design will appeal to architects and many will want to incorporate the dispensers into their more upmarket facilities at the design stage. And to make it even easier we are providing BIM object files for each dispenser through so that architects and interior designers can build their washrooms from scratch with our dispensers incorporated.”
