Major investment and new washroom system launched

Major investment and new proprietary washroom system for Northwood

Following a major investment in its Telford plant, Northwood Hygiene Products is launching a new proprietary washroom system featuring an industry first.

Offering hygiene, cost-in-use, performance and sustainability, the high capacity Raphael collection comprises two toilet tissue and four hand towel dispensers, along with a soap dispenser. The range features the industry’s first twin high capacity toilet roll dispenser, the TwinJumbo, which holds up to 800m of product, precluding the need for frequent replenishment and ordering.

This is a significant advantage at a time when facilities management and janitorial teams are exceptionally busy, as they work to ensure that premises are kept hygienically clean.

Raphael’s hygiene credentials are second-to-none. The majority of dispensers are contactless and the others are treated with BioKleen technology, inhibiting bacteria growth. Incorporating a single-piece shell, they are easy to wipe clean and all towels and rolls are enclosed. The system offers competitive cost-in-use. An infinity paper system, allowing users to replenish one roll at a time, ensures waste is kept to a minimum.

The collection is suitable for the most challenging washrooms, with high performance dispensers constructed from durable ABS plastic ensuring scratch and impact resistance; they are also lockable, preventing theft and untidiness.

The range consists of pure pulp and 100% recycled products, many of which are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, reflecting Northwood’s commitment to environmental sustainability throughout its operation. Roll inserts are made from recycled bottle tops and are recyclable. Some products are wrapped in paper, which may be recycled, and all products are boxed in recycled and recyclable cardboard.

Created with the end user at the heart of the design process, Raphael encapsulates the art of modern washroom dispensers. The sleek smoke and blue units are translucent, while the white one features a transparent rear panel, allowing stock checks to be undertaken swiftly. All have been engineered to enable quick refill.

Distributors stand to gain from the new range, which features a robust patented lock-out system with mechanically fitted inserts that cannot be removed manually. A training academy has been launched to help them to effectively sell the range.

Marketing Manager Paul Mulready said: “We are excited about Raphael and the many benefits it offers to customers requiring hygienic, high capacity systems for high footfall washrooms. We’ve invested heavily in the new line and are confident that it will prove popular with end users and distributors alike.”
