C Fold Paper Hand Towels, Folded Hand Towels.

The first question i need to answer is why these towels are called C Fold? When folded as the image above is you will see 2 flaps, once these are lifted the shape resembles a letter C, there you go, it’s not rocket science! Wait until you see why Z Fold are called by their name! 🙂

C Fold paper hand towels are still our most asked for hand towel and for some reason our best seller. I suppose some people just don’t like change.

3 reasons why we don’t recommend C Fold hand Towels

  1. These towels are folded in on themselves and most users will not open up the towel causing waste.
  2. C Fold tend to be a lower gsm meaning that you need more to dry your hands.
  3. If they are put into a dispenser the wrong way you will struggle to take only one towel causing waste.

20 years ago when we didnt have interleaved towels a standard size would be 230mm x 330mm. A great size towel that would also be 40gsm. As the cost of raw material grew, manufacturers had to make the decision to reduce grammage and towels sizes. Today you can get a C fold towel that is 36gsm and a size of 230mm x 250mm which is 80mm shorter than they used to be. With the towel being folded its not a big issue as we discussed earlier, most people don’t open the towel anyway! Pack sizes have also been reduced to allow more cases per pallet. This of course helps distribution and keeps costs down when transporting goods across then world. You can find C Fold Hand Towels Pallet Deals at Loorolls.com of this exact product.

4 good reason why we do recommend C Fold Towels

Individually folded Hand Towels are important to some. Cost in use is very important so open towels are very cost effective. When there is a need for towels that don’t open out or are not interlocked with another, C Fold is ideal. I have seen many Primary schools with this used as an option for a few reasons.

1, Dispensers cannot be fitted at low levels so children can reach the towels to dry their hands.
2, Some companies want to present hand towels in a basket or open tray.
3, Golf Clubs love to offer open baskets for their Airlaid Hand Towels
4, Not wanting to drill holes into a wall is a popular reason not to have a wall mounted dispenser.

Why are there 3 C Fold colours?

Green, Blue or White are the 3 colour options with our C Fold Hand Towels. Beige or Natural has tried to make it’s mark in the UK hand towel market but has failed to make an impact. Blue is a colour used in the Catering Industry. Schools are also a big user of Blue Hand Towels. Green towels always seem to be the economy, cheap choice but in reality green and blue cost the same. White tissue is available in 1, 2 or 3ply options and mostly associated with being the posh towels. A Pure tissue hand towel in 2 ply or more is usually soft and classed as a luxury product. Of course you recycled is also availble in white towels and often just as soft as pure tissue.
