Do public and commercial washrooms need specific hygienic accessories?

September 2018

Hygienic accessories specifically designed for public and commercial washrooms

Toilet brushes, coat hooks, mirrors, toilet paper dispensers...
All these hygienic accessories, which can be found in the home and which are destined for the domestic market, are not suitable for commercial washrooms.

What are the problems faced by commercial washrooms?

  • In airport toilets people hang their hand luggage, which is often very heavy, on the coat hook and/or bump their luggage against the toilet brush: intensive use
  • In restaurant toilets, when the the soap runs out in the soap dispenser, we tend to press the push-button several times with increasing force: involontary vandalism
  • During a "comfort break" at a motorway service station, people use a toilet brush that drips because it has already been used by a lot of people. This causes splashes on the floor and toilet seat, and also bad smells: hygiene and comfort problems
  • When students use the university toilets, they take the toilet paper to stock up at home: theft

All these situations are examples of the everyday reality faced by washrooms in public buildings.

Vandalism, both voluntary and involuntary, is particularly prevalent in highly frequented places. Commercial washrooms are also regularly subjected to theft.

Sanitary equipment can be used intensively, especially in motorway service stations and sports stadiums during the half-time interval.

Hospitals, retirement homes, schools, canteens, public toilets, etc. are places that must meet the highest standards of hygiene.

Hygienic accessories must therefore meet the obvious and essential principle: the possibility of frequent cleaning.

Hygienic accessories designed for public buildings

Commercial places require specialist hygienic accessories.

  • Anti-theft systems: concealed fixings, dispensers with locks
  • Optimum hygiene: toilet brushes with bowls (avoid splashing) and lids (prevent smells), dispensers with one-piece covers (reduce niches where bacteria can develop)...

  • Easy to maintain: the same DELABIE key for all accessories, dispensers with a level control window
