Well maintained public washrooms have benefits that can affect your bottom line. Customers say it communicates a perception of quality, safety and overall cleanliness, and influences their likelihood to return.

The Premium Washroom Collection from GP PRO is a coordinated suite of products that offers a level of design and elegance. But, they don’t just look nice. These dispensers were designed to make your washroom work for your business, rather than against it.


A nice touchless

Touchless dispensing helps control usage, resulting in reduced waste of product. Not to mention, 78% of people prefer touchless dispensers. We’re not talking touchless air dryers here. We’re talking soap and paper towel dispensers.


Now let’s get to the stinky part

Yes, washroom odour. It may be a bigger deal than you know. Behind dirty toilet seats, the number two washroom complaint is odour. Smell has such a primal impact, it actually transforms perception. 65% of people will tell someone if your washroom smells bad. If you have an odour problem, you need to diffuse the situation. The first automatic in cubicle air freshener, deodouriser from ActiveAire could be the's in the cubicle because that's where the smells come from.
