Welcome back to my blog. This week I have teamed up with one of Jangro’s suppliers, Metsä Tissue to bring you a special feature article all about its brand new Katrin Inclusive Dispensers.
The range has been designed in collaboration with customers, end users and industry experts from across Europe to take into account the needs of a wide selection of consumers including children, the elderly and those who have visual or physical disabilities.
Accessible for all
Metsä Tissue designed this range with total inclusivity with all members of the public firmly in mind. Strong, contrasting colours create maximum visibility and braille text is used to further enhance usability for those with visual impairments.
Large ‘push faces’ are easy to use for people of all ages and abilities and simple graphical signage clearly shows how the dispensers should be used and maintained.
Contemporary black or white designs feature on all 10 types of Katrin Inclusive Dispensers. There are new models for the Katrin System Hand Towel and Toilet Roll as well as dispensers for conventional paper products and soaps. Other products include complementary waste and feminine hygiene bins and chic facial tissue dispensers.
Environmentally and ethically sound
The highest ethical standards were adhered to at every stage of the design of the Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range. Each product meets all the relevant EU regulations that are applicable to hygiene facilities in businesses and public facilities.
In addition, every step has been taken to help Metsä Tissue’s customers reduce their carbon footprint with environmentally sound paper consumables available.
All dispensers are made using ABS and polypropylene plastic, which are completely recyclable and can be safely reintroduced into the production cycle.
Finally, the products are specially designed to reduce wastage, cutting down excessive use of consumables.
Simple set up and maintenance
Saving time on installation and maintenance was taken into account in every aspect of the design of this range. Transparent housing and side panels ensures personnel can easily see screw holes for wall fixing and can identify how much consumable product is left.
Full fitting instructions are included with all models, which includes recommended heights to accommodate wheelchair users.
The Katrin Inclusive Dispenser products can be keyed or keyless, with simple set-ups on installation. For those that opt for the keyed option, the entire range uses the same key, which eliminates time consuming searches.
Tried and tested
Every single detail of the Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range has been rigorously tested to ensure safety and ease of use at all times. Extensive tests, which simulated an absolute minimum of a 20-year lifetime, were carried out across the entire range.
Research carried out by Metsä Tissue also measured visual appeal of the products, with 74 per cent of participants preferring the design of the Katrin Inclusive Range to other dispensers in the marketplace.
Mark Dewick, Sales Director for Metsä Tissue UK and Ireland, said: “We are immensely proud of our Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range, which is the result of the hard work and dedication of our design and research teams.
“It was imperative that the range catered for the needs of people across Europe and it also needed to be stylish and appealing whilst being cost effective and environmentally friendly.
“The dispensers, and their complementary products, will certainly add panache to any washroom setting and we have had a great response from our clients in the UK and beyond”
Joanne Gilliard, Operations Director at Jangro, added: “We are delighted to be offering these fabulous products to customers as they really do tick every washroom related box.
“I know that they are going to be very popular in the marketplace and we applaud Metsä Tissue for this totally inclusive, high quality range.”
