Commercial Paper Towel Dispensers: New Designs for Safe Use

The Covid-19 pandemic led to many changes in the way we live our private and public lives. Maintaining a feeling of safety and wellbeing during these times is crucial. In public spaces especially, we are looking for solutions that ensure this feeling. Additionally, we want to continue to live our lives the way we did before. As a result, companies are being tasked with providing safe spaces to retain their customer base. This is no small task for brick-and-mortar businesses that see customers every single day. While you want the entire facility is following safe practices, the restroom is a good place to start. Touchless products, such as commercial paper towel dispensers, can help to generate a feeling of safety and bring your customers back day after day. 

Why Try Touchless Restroom Accessories in 2022?

It may seem to some people that the Covid-19 pandemic is “winding down.” For those people, as of early 2022, they may not be as concerned with safety. As a citizen and a civilian, it is any person’s right to make that decision for themselves. However, as a business owner or manager, your customer’s safety should remain of the highest importance. While each individual person has his or her own unique stance on the situation, businesses must continue to provide environments where any and all people of varying opinions are comfortable in the space. 

According to new metrics released by the CDC, about 70% of the U.S. population lives in a place where they no longer need to wear a mask to protect themselves and others. However, many of these people are still choosing to wear them out of an abundance of caution during this transitional period. Additionally, Dr. Lisa Maragakis, senior director of infection prevention at the Johns Hopkins Health System, believes that “We need to understand and take care of the people who are most vulnerable among us…” All of this information points to the fact that considering the safety and wellbeing of our customers is still paramount to finding success in today’s climate.
