The hygiene benefits of the new touch-free Tork foam soap dispenser are attracting a high level of interest from hygienecritical healthcare and hospitality environments, says SCA. The system is also appealing to facility service companies seeking a lowmaintenance washroom system that reduces labour costs.
The sensor-operated Tork Elevation foam soap dispenser combines a high capacity unit with a touch-free operation to enhance hygiene. Each refill contains 2,500 doses of quality foam soap - around two and a half times the amount contained in a liquid soap bottle of the same volume.
The cost per shot of soap is reduced and lower levels of washroom maintenance are required since the refills need to be changed less frequently.
'The cartridge is so simple to change that it takes just five seconds, and the fact that the system is touch-free removes the risk of cross-contamination,' says Charlotte Branwhite, SCA product and segment manager.
'The single-use soap bottle also helps to prevent the problem of contamination.
'The touch-free Tork foam soap dispenser is aimed in particular at the hygiene-critical hospitality and healthcare sectors, but we are also experiencing a high level of interest from managers of office buildings where a touchfree system helps to create a clean, hygienic image. '
