Rubbermaid Touch-Free Washroom

Though touch-free washroom technology was already gaining some traction, its relevance and necessity were heavily accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic and a greater need for clean restroom solutions to help reduce the spread of germs and infection.

In general, public restrooms are perceived relatively negatively. In fact, 66 percent of people utilize a variety of maneuvers to avoid contact with anything in a public restroom.1 This is for good reason—public restrooms are typically high-traffic areas, where fixtures, surfaces, and even the air collect germs and bacteria. Since 80 percent of germs are transmitted via the hands2, it is important to have restroom solutions that help reduce the risk of cross-contamination on restroom users’ hands.

Fortunately, Rubbermaid offers an entire comprehensive line of touch-free washroom solutions to reduce the spread of germs, meet the expectations of employees and guests, and lower operating costs.

Their product offerings include:

  • AutoFoam and OneShot Soap Dispensers that help protect your facility’s image and employees’ well-being by reducing the risk of cross-contamination. These reliable dispensing systems positively impact the bottom line by automatically delivering controlled amounts of soap with each dispense.
  • AutoFlush and AutoFaucet Fixtures that utilize smart sensor technology to operate automatically, helping to ensure that your restroom is always clean, presentable, efficient, and ready for use.
  • Silhouettes, Half Rounds, and Sanitary Receptacles that blend into the existing restroom environment and offer guests and employees functional, touch-free, high-capacity solutions to dispose of waste. They are sleek, contemporary, and non-obstructive, while still providing a safe and hygienic way to dispose of sanitary waste.

Whether for skin, air, or surface care, each of Rubbermaid’s touch-free washroom solutions are specifically designed with health and wellness, cost reduction, and facility image in mind!
