The following tips should help you decide which hand towel and dispenser are right for you.
1) SKIP THE HOT AIR DRYER.
Paper towels make a better impression. They dry hands better, they are more sanitary, and studies found that nearly 90% of users prefer the performance of paper towels over hot air dryers.
2) EVALUATE YOUR WASHROOM.
A recent study found that office building tenants spend more time in the washroom each day than they do in the lobby for an entire month. What do you want your washroom to say about your facility? If you need
luxury and home-like comfort, look to trusted brands, such as KLEENEX Towels. If yours is a high-traffic
washroom, consider a longer roll towel that reduces run-out, like the
SCOTT 1000-foot Hard Roll Towel. Are hygiene and sanitation important? Look for a touch-free towel dispenser like the SANITOUCH Roll Towel Dispenser. How much time are you spending on change-outs? With transparent IN-SIGHT Dispensers, you can quickly see when a refill is needed.
3) FOLDED OR ROLL TOWELS?
Roll towels are typically recommended for high-traffic washrooms or where high capacity and lower
cost-in-use are required. Roll towels often deter over-use and theft as users are not as likely to take as much off the roll as they would with folded towels. Folded towels are recommended for washrooms where image is more important. Folded towels also eliminate problems relating to dispensers with moving parts.
4) FIND A FOLDED FORMAT THAT FITS.
First came simple single-folds. Next were c-folds, a format many still use despite poor dispensing. Multi-fold towels were an improvement because users needed only pull the tail-end of the towel from the
dispenser. However, 1-ply multi-folds tended to tab or tear when pulled from the dispenser with wet
hands. To combine preferred hand-drying with a higher-quality, better dispensing towel, check out
the patented SCOTTFOLD Towel System.
5) THE SCOTTFOLD DIFFERENCE.
Kimberly-Clark revolutionized folded towels with its patented KLEENEX SCOTTFOLD C Towel System as a
superior replacement for c-folds. The KLEENEX SCOTTFOLD C Towel System is designed for
one-at-a-time dispensing, enhancing the washrooms appearance and controlling costs by reducing maintenance and waste. Next, KIMBERLY-CLARK Professional introduced SCOTT SCOTTFOLD M
Towels as a superior replacement to multi-folds. SCOTT SCOTTFOLD M Towels are preferred
two-to-one over leading competitive multi-folds for looks, softness and hand drying.
6) KNOW YOUR ROLLS.
While users typically choose roll towels for cost and capacity advantages, KLEENEX Hard Roll Towels provide an image upgrade. For higher capacity, the SCOTT 1000 Hard Roll Towel provides 25% more feet than a standard 800-ft. roll towel without increasing roll diameter or sacrificing performance. The towel fits
into the same dispenser space and reduces the time spent on change-outs.
7) KNOW YOUR TOWEL COSTS.
You may be surprised at the total cost-in-use of your current towel system. Did you ever notice all those times that you grabbed more towels than you needed? What about all those times when you pulled a
multi-fold and the towel tore because it dispenses 1-ply? How many towels do you think you wasted?
About 30 towels every new clip of 200 towels? That is a 15% waste factor.
