News & Press Releases
We would be delighted to see you at ISH 2011 (15-19 March 2011) on stand 4.1 F24 where we will be introducing a number of innovative new Bobrick washroom accessories designed with sustainability, resource conservation and cost savings at the forefront of their development.
New Automatic Towel Dispensers
The new range of surface-mounted and semi-recessed Automatic Roll Towel Dispensers has been developed for use with universal non-proprietary rolls. By releasing building owners from expensive long-term paper supply contracts, cost savings of up to 30% can be achieved.
The TowelMate towel saving accessory limits paper delivery to one towel at a time, eliminates towel bunching and waste and saves 20% or more in paper towels used. TowelMate is supplied as standard in ConturaSeries and is available as an optional extra for ClassicSeries washroom accessories.
New Koala Kare EN compliant Baby Changing Station
The new KB200 baby changing station conforms to EN 1221:2008 and is produced from 15-20% recycled materials. Unique in its segment KB200 is treated with Microban® antibacterial product protection.
New TrimLine Hand Dryers
The new TrimLineSeries warm air hand dryer projects only 100mm from the wall face making it an excellent choice for use in accessible washrooms. The use of hand dryers can contribute to savings of 95% when compared to the use of paper towels.
Our commitment to the environment
A key theme at ISH2011 is ‘Green Bathroom: Back to Nature!’ In the Green Bathroom everything revolves around a responsible use of a scarce resource, water, and sustainable bathroom design. This means the use of recyclable materials. Bobrick stainless steel accessories typically use 50-70% recycled stainless steel.
The new EN compliant KB-200 horizontal baby changing station sees the world’s bestselling baby changing station remodelled and reengineered.
KB200 features an improved aesthetic intended to complement contemporary washroom design and a changing station bed with a smooth, seamless finish absent of any sharp edges or pinch points to ensure baby comfort and ease of cleaning.
The new polypropylene baby changing station is the only product of its kind available with Microban® antibacterial product protection built in and includes an integral key-locked bed liner dispenser in response to research findings that parents expected to see bed liners available in family friendly washroom facilities.
KB200 is available in a choice of colours - Cream, White Granite and Grey.
Bobrick’s ConturaSeries washroom accessories now benefit from the integration of TowelMate paper towel retainers and LinerMate bin liner holders on all models manufactured after June 2010. These enhancements are consistent with Bobrick’s commitment to providing non-proprietary washroom solutions that reduce labour, eliminate waste and cut operating costs for building owners.
TowelMate ensures paper towels are dispensed ‘one at a time’ by preventing towels from bunching or sagging in the dispenser opening. This innovative solution reduces paper towel usage by more than 20%. The design of TowelMate also prevents towels from falling forward when the door is open making it quicker and easier for maintenance staff to refill the dispensers.
LinerMate prevents maintenance staff from having to wrap bin liners over the top of waste bins. In addition to improving the cleanliness and appearance of the washroom the LinerMate prevents misdirection of waste and facilitates the easy replacement of full bin liners without unlocking the waste bin.
TowelMate and LinerMate accessories are also available to be retrofitted to ConturaSeries models predating June 2010 and can be purchased as optional accessories for certain ClassicSeries paper towel dispensers and waste bins.
The new Bobrick UK website features National Building Specification product clauses linked to each of an extensive range of washroom accessories. Once a suitable stainless steel accessory has been identified from www.bobrick.co.uk the applicable clause in NBS format can be inserted into a specification simply by 'cutting and pasting'.
