Why Touchless Equipment is Essential in Commercial Bathrooms

In today’s world, there’s no reason not to use touchless bathroom equipment in a commercial facility. With the COVID-19 pandemic still at the forefront of our minds, having an option that’s more sanitary and more budget-friendly is a clear win-win. Manual equipment may have less of an upfront cost, but touchless equipment is worth the investment. Here’s why touchless equipment is essential in commercial bathrooms. 


Improved Hygiene

Until you really think about it, you never quite realize how many things you touch throughout the day. Touchless equipment in the bathroom leads to improved hygiene everywhere in a commercial building. Avoiding shared surfaces means fewer touchpoints and opportunities for germs to spread from person to person, to doorknob, to keyboard, and so on.


Reduced Maintenance

For business owners, another major benefit of touchless commercial bathroom equipment is that it has fewer moving parts. The fewer parts a piece of equipment has, the less likely it is to break down. For touchless dispensers, since everything is automated, there’s almost zero room for human error causing a clog, break or malfunction. 


More Convenience

While the time each person saves by not having to manually flush a toilet or turn on a sink seems negligible, people notice the convenience. It’s generally a more pleasant experience using touchless equipment over manual equipment, especially in commercial bathrooms. For many businesses, like restaurants and cafes, the bathroom experience is an integral part of the customer journey. 


Increased Accessibility

Moving through life is more difficult for some, especially elderly people and those with disabilities. Automatic dispensers make their lives easier by not requiring them to reach, press, or otherwise manipulate equipment. Not only will they have a more sanitary bathroom experience; they’ll also have less of a struggle to get what they need. 


Better for Your Budget

Maintaining and restocking manual dispensers can be costly. With more room for human error, there’s a higher chance of having to replace paper or soap that wasn’t even used. There’s also more cleaning up of messes caused by manual dispensers, which means more work for the bathroom cleaning staff. Overall, touchless bathroom equipment is a solid long-term investment.
