Few of us can forget the memorable episode of Seinfeld, when Elaine faces the selfish bathroom buddy who will not share even a square of toilet tissue. It results in a battle over toilet paper and Elaine escapes with an armful of toilet tissue rolls all in an attempt to “pay back” this selfish user. Kimberly-Clark may have prevented us all from suffering Elaine’s fate with their Professional JRT Electronic Coreless bath tissue dispenser.
Richard Thorne, the director of the washroom business for Kimberly-Clark says, “The electronic revolution has entered the bathroom stall,” said Richard Thorne, director of the washroom business, North America, for Kimberly-Clark Professional. “It’s a major leap forward in restroom hygiene because it eliminates the need to touch the dispenser during use.” (Kimberly-Clark)
Many public bathrooms provide a touchless soap dispenser, paper towel dispenser, and even touchless faucets. Kimberly-Clark now makes it possible to have a touchless bathroom tissue dispenser, greatly reducing the risks associated with the spread of germs by the human hand.
This new system is similar to the automatic paper towel dispenser that automatically dispenses a premeasured amount of tissue when users put their hands under the dispenser. The advanced touchless electronics, in combination with the coreless bathroom tissue, which eliminates the need for a hole and cardboard core, is expected to provide a more hygienic bathroom experience, reduce consumption, and provide a hassle free experience.
The dispenser is in compliance with the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when installed properly, because the system provides convenient one-hand dispensing.
The JRT Electronic Coreless bath tissue dispenser is expected to provide a 20% reduction in the amount of bath tissue used, will require 45% less packaging waste due to the new coreless center, and provides programmable sheet length. Sheet length options include: short (16″), Medium (20″) and long (24″) settings. Users also have the option of manually obtaining tissue by pushing and turning a knob at the front of the dispenser.
The unit requires a battery to operate the system. LED lights alert maintenance workers to both low battery and the need to refill the dispenser.
Kimberly-Clark is offering the JRT Electronic Coreless bath tissue dispenser with a no questions asked guarantee. This guarantee reimburses purchasers with up to $1,000 of free products if the dispenser does not meet the satisfaction of the purchaser.
Kimberly-Clark has been committed to providing the consumer with products to improve health, hygiene, and well being for 135 years. Their products are sold in 150 countries worldwide. Each day 1.3 billion people rely on Kimberly-Clark to meet their needs.
