Kimberly-Clark Professional Launches Hygienic Toilet Tissue System

Kimberly-Clark Professional Launches Hygienic Toilet Tissue System

As the cleanliness of public spaces remains a key FM challenge, Kimberly-Clark Professional has launched a system designed to deliver maximum hygiene in washrooms.

The Scott® ControlTM Mini Twin Centrefeed Toilet Tissue system is claimed to be the most hygienic dispenser in the marketplace, according to a swab test study conducted by MGS Laboratories.

Launched as part of the Kimberly-Clark Professional 360 Hygiene & Protection programme, the new twin system has a one-wipe-clean dispenser that is designed with no shut lines or key holes and is the highest capacity centrefeed toilet tissue system available.

 

“The pressure on FMs and cleaning staff to deliver hygiene without compromising efficiency is higher than ever. This system is designed to reduce hygiene risks and refill events, enabling cleaning staff to be deployed to other more critical hygiene duties.”

In a post-COVID environment, most agree that there will continue to be a huge emphasis on safety against pathogens, to reassure the users of the premises that there is protection against viruses and quash any hygiene anxiety.

At the height of the second wave of the virus, a survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Kimberly-Clark Professional showed that confidence was low when it came to returning to the workplace. Three out of four people in the UK do not feel safe going back to the workplace, while 86 per cent said they would avoid a location if they didn’t think it was COVID secure.

“In all sectors, hygiene plus the safety and wellbeing of staff and visitors, is the highest priority for businesses as they cope with the ongoing pandemic’,” explained Richard Millard, EMEA Senior Category Manager, Bath Tissue, Kimberly-Clark Professional.

“The pressure on FMs and cleaning staff to deliver hygiene without compromising efficiency is higher than ever. This system is designed to reduce hygiene risks and refill events, enabling cleaning staff to be deployed to other more critical hygiene duties.”

 

Avoiding Cross-Contamination

 

Designed with fully enclosed, protected rolls for touchless dispensing, the new system avoids cross-contamination as users only touch the sheet to be used. Controlled single sheet dispensing also reduces paper usage. A never-run-out twin design delivers 100 per cent tissue availability and reduces the need for refills. Fewer refills means less chance for cross-contamination, keeping staff and visitors safe and confident that washrooms are well stocked and managed.

The system has 1,666 sheets and a total of 408 metres of tissue per fully loaded dispenser which means it has 82 per cent more metres and 426 more sheets than other twin centrefeed systems.

A full dispenser provides sufficient tissue for a huge 408 visits versus typically just 72 visits with a competitive single bulk pack folded toilet tissue system. Compared with uncontrolled, toilet tissue systems, the new twin centrefeed dispenser provides up to 378 more visits than a small roll toilet tissue and up to 285 more visits than a 2x200 metre competitive jumbo toilet roll.

“Using a controlled toilet tissue system is the future for delivering maximum efficiency for facilities. The wastage generated from jumbo roll and small roll formats makes them not the preferred choice for high traffic environments,” added Richard Millard.

 

Sustainability KPIs

 

In today’s world, facilities must ensure that heightened hygiene risks are managed with no concessions for efficiencies and sustainability targets.  Meeting sustainability KPIs is crucial for facilities managers with responsible and recycled products increasingly in demand.

Meeting such a demand, Scott® Control™ Twin Toilet Tissue is produced from 100 per cent recycled FSC certified fibre, with roll packaging also 30 per cent recycled and 100 per cent recyclable. Additionally, the controlled dispensing of the new system reduces paper use and reduces the need for storage and transportation of supplies. Washroom waste is avoided with this highest capacity system which has a roll change indicator to alert staff when supply is running low.

The Scott® branded quality toilet tissue also has excellent paper disintegration avoiding disruptive blockages. “The Scott® Control™ range offers a complete washroom solution, delivering increased hygiene without compromising on washroom efficiency or sustainability,” adds Richard Millard.

“As with all our washroom systems, the Scott® ControlTM Twin Centrefeed Toilet Tissue system delivers unmatched market-leading hygiene and efficiencies, so our customers can provide facilities that support the safety, health and wellbeing of staff and visitors during these challenging times now and uncertain ones ahead.”
