Choosing the Right Paper Towel Dispenser

Choosing the Right Paper Towel Dispenser

When choosing the right paper towel dispenser, there are many things to look for and consider. A paper towel dispenser is a staple in every commercial restaurant, kitchen or bathroom. With many options, styles and finishes to choose from, one might begin to feel a little overwhelmed. Never fear we have created a fool-proof guide that you can use to make a more informed decision about choosing the right commercial product for you.

Paper Towel Dispenser Mounting Styles

While most people look at just the colour and finishes, the location and mounting style is also very important to know before you buy. There are a few options that you can choose from such as surface-mounted, recessed, and semi-recessed.

The mounting style and type of dispenser you choose can affect how the product is filled and dispensed. If your bathroom or kitchen is tight and lacking extra space then a recessed paper towel dispenser is an excellent option. If you want something with minimal construction required then a surface mounted paper towel dispenser could be just what you are looking for.

Types of Paper Towel Dispensers

C-Fold / Multi-fold Dispensers

This style is typically the most cost-effective option you can buy. We sell Frost and ASI versions which depending on the finish you select, can save you quite a bit of money.

Touchless Dispensers

Touchless paper towel dispenser is just that - touchless. This style is another great option for commercial restaurants and washrooms. The automatic paper towel dispenser is a great way to cut down on germs. This style lets the user only touch the piece of paper towel they want without having to pull cranks or push buttons to dispense, which can have many different germs hiding on the surface.
