BATHROOM TISSUE DISPENSERS: Don’t have an issue with your stainless steel or plastic dispenser falling off and injuring a restaurant customer. Another problem to avoid is the dispenser lid popping open because it was not locked after replacing the paper. Below are some helpful solutions to help avoid these possible issues.
AVOID FALLING DISPENSERS
An important element in preventing dispensers from falling is ensuring they are properly mounted. Safety is vital for Century Products LLC and all of the cleaning programs. Both the Jumbo Roll Tissue Dispenser and the Standard Tissue Dispenser have two mounting points. That means they’re more secure and unlikely to fall.
Additionally, the dispensers come with all of the hardware you need to install them properly, eliminating any concerns over whether you’re using the right screws to keep your dispenser in place. For all McDonald’s Regional Rollouts, Century Products LLC will arrange professional installers to work with each region to install the dispensers, so you can guarantee they’re mounted in the safest way possible.
AVOID DISPENSERS POPPING OPEN
Another safety feature of the Jumbo Roll Tissue Dispenser is that you do not need a key to lock the cover in place. It has teeth that snap into place once you fill the dispenser with the proper paper and close the cover. That means no one needs to remember to turn the key.
AVOID BROKEN/SCRATCHED DISPENSERS
Some plastic dispensers are made from materials that can crack and break. Sharp pieces of broken plastic can cause cuts and puncture wounds, another set of liabilities. Scratches to the dispenser might not cause injuries, but they ruin the appearance. That’s why the Jumbo Roll Tissue Dispenser cover is made from practically indestructible polycarbonate. It’s so durable that we put a dispenser under each tire of a 16,000 pound truck, and when we pulled the dispensers out, they looked as good as new. The textured finish on the polycarbonate cover prevents scratches and smudges, so your dispenser will not only hold up to repeated use (and abuse), it will look good in the process.
MAINTAIN ADA COMPLIANCE
Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA is also vital in preventing liabilities related to paper dispensers. It is required by law to maintain these standards. In order to maintain ADA compliance, you must follow two measurements:
- The distance from the toilet to the center line of the dispenser: Must be 7”-9” from the front of the toilet.
- The distance from the finished floor to the output of the dispenser:
- Option 1: Below the grab bar – Must be a minimum 15” from the floor to the output of the dispenser
- Option 2: Above the grab bar – Must be a maximum 48” from the floor to the output of the dispenser
*Dispensers should never be mounted behind the grab bar, as that makes them difficult to access.
All of Century Products LLC’s dispensers meet ADA standards. All dispensers can be mounted at multiple heights in order to comply with ADA installation guidelines. They can all be accessed with one hand and do not require grasping, pinching or twisting of the wrist. As mentioned, Century Products will install the dispensers for you to ensure they comply with all ADA and safety standards. Century Products will also replace any defective, broken and/or damaged dispensers at no cost to the end user.
Century Products also offers their dispensers for free with an exclusive paper contract (restrictions apply). See below for more information or contact Century Products LLC.
