Things to be mindfull of when it comes to hand towel dispensers

Things to be mindfull of when it comes to hand towel dispenser is whether they will actually fit a certain towel. For example, if you currently use a C Fold paper towel and wish to switch to an open towel to save yourself money you will then need to know which options to choose from. A Z fold towel may not be the best option for this becase of the depth of the towel and the size of you dispenser opening.

More time than not you are best switching from a C Fold to a V Fold or Interfold hand towel because the towel when folded normally fits nicely into the open dispenser. Our Papernet Dissolvetech V Fold is a perfect replacement for a C Fold.

If you’re looking for new hand towel dispenser, please contact us. We will more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Switch from C Fold to V Fold and Save Money

If you’ve read through this site you’ll notice that we will always recommend an open hand towel over a folded C Fold towel. We gaurantee you will save money when you switch which will help reduce your budget and also reduce your order quantities. When purchasing a Hand Towel Dispenser you must be aware that different towels fit different dispensers. For example, Z Fold towels are not a good fit for a C Fold Dispenser.

Microfold Hand Towel Dispensers

Our Microfold dispensers are something a little different from the common teardrop dispenser you see in may establishments. Microfold from Bay West and North Shore have designed a compact dispenser and a range of Towels to suit that are smaller in size to fit and look amazingly modern in any Kitchen or Bathroom.

Roller Hand Towel Dispensers

We all want to save money when it comes to drying our hands. Roller Hand Towel Dispensers are designed with cost in use in mind. Single sheet dispensing system that offers a fully open towel ready to dry your hands. Our new range of North Shore dispensers offer 2 options, Standard auto cut system that when you pull the towel from the dispenser a mechanical mechanism automatically cuts the sheet at a certain length leaving a tab ready for the next towel pull.

What you need to know about automatic hand towel dispensers

If that sounds a little unhygienic for you then wht not look at our North Shore Hybrid Automatic Sensor Roller Hand Towel Dispenser. This is a battery powered dispenser with a sensor that enables a single sheet towel ready to use. With a standard delay so the towels don’t keep coming out. We have automatic to have some great points but also a few negative ones.

As hygienic as is sounds, and they do offer the solution for not wanting to actually touch the dispenser there is a sheet tab visible and therefore may be deemed as not enclosed and not 100% clean and untouched.

The biggest issue we have found is to be the maintenance. If you don’t keep an eye on the dispensers and the battery runs out then the system doesn’t work. Once the battery has run out it is then down to the users to replace or recharge. We have had many compaints over the years about dispenser not working only to find the batteries had not been replaced!
