If you’re a business owner, you might not think about paper towel dispensers every day, but they’re the sort of thing that your staff or customers will notice if they aren’t working properly. Surprisingly though there is a lot to think about when looking for the right paper towel dispenser! It can be quite a dry topic (no pun intended), so reading our no-nonsense guide will help you to pick out the right paper towel dispenser for your business.
First up though, we need to talk about the elephant in the room. Do you even want a paper towel dispenser, or is an electric hand dryer better? That’s a question for another article, as you’ll be surprised to learn that it’s quite a controversial issue and we need to give both sides the attention they deserve in separate articles first! Click HERE to view our guide to electric hand dryers and click HERE to read our head-to-head. It might seem like a trivial decision but it could end up saving you money! Suffice to say both have their benefits, it’s just a matter of which one is right for you.
Budget Paper Towel Dispensers
If you want something cost-effective, simple and effective then a budget paper towel dispenser will offer an easy solution. Even within the budget range, there are a lot of factors to consider though. Make sure to check what kind of paper your dispenser takes, and that it’s robust enough to survive people yanking out paper towels all day!
With this in mind, this stainless steel paper towel dispenser is worth a look. It offers a sleek design that will fit well into most washrooms, and it’s also sturdy enough to handle heavy use. Best of all, this model can also dispense C-fold, I-fold and Z-fold varieties of paper. This means you aren’t tied to one particular make of paper towel to fit into your dispensers!
Intelligent Paper Towel Dispensers
We’re living in an automated age, so if you want your customers or staff to know you’re a modern, forward thinking business, you might consider an intelligent paper towel dispenser. These dispensers dole out a single sheet of paper towel automatically to a single user, and always cut the paper off cleanly, ready for the next user. Naturally, this also means you’ll use much less paper as users won’t be able to roll off huge wads of paper at once.
HSD Recommends: Evadis Intelligent Systems White Mini Sensorcut
This smart paper towel dispenser keeps its paper inside until it detects someone in front of it using a sensor. Once it detects that a user wants to use it, the Mini Sensorcut will produce a sheet of paper and cut it off automatically. This means you keep a tight control over how much paper people use by reducing waste. Importantly, it also ensures the most hygienic experience possible as your staff member or customer will only touch the paper they’re using. With this in mind, the sleek Mini Sensorcut offers incredible value!
Coloured Paper Towel Dispensers
If you want a cosy washroom for your customers to enjoy using, getting the right colour paper towel to fit your décor matters. If the typical white or silver look isn’t to your liking, there are a range of colours that just might be.
HSD Recommends: Marplast Multifold Paper Towel Dispenser
Offering a no-nonsense and tough yet sleek design, this model fits a range of paper towel varieties and comes in a range of stylish colours to suit any décor.
Roll Towel Dispensers
If you work in an industrial environment or anywhere that means your staff need to constantly wipe their hands, a roll paper towel dispenser may be the best thing for you. Roll paper towels tend to be a little thicker, wider and more absorbent so they’re the best suited for constant use.
HSD Recommends: Origin Autocut Paper Roll Towel Dispenser
If it’s going to be constantly in use, you want your paper towel dispenser to be easy to use and easy to maintain. This Origin model ticks both boxes emphatically, offering a hygienic automatic cutting system and proving to be incredibly simple to refill.
