  • The Weather is Changing & Germs are spreading!

    Its that time of year when the weather starts turning from a warm and comfortable to cold and miserable :/ but on the plus side that means its coming up to Christmas!

    The fluctuations in temperature and weather at this time of year always get me and many others with the nasty cold and flue virus.

    Colds effect everyone eventually but the young and old are far more vulnerable to the effects of these winter viruses than you or I.

    Unfortunately its almost impossible to not catch a cold but we can minimise our risk to catching it by sanitising your hands, since it is usually transferred from hand to mouth (or via water droplets in the air which is much harder to avoid).

    So now is the time to start looking after yourself and your staff with a selection of products to sanitise hands and local areas to keep you and your staff healthy through this transition from warm to cold.

    Simply use these products on dry hands giving an overall coverage from finger tips to the palms of the hand which kills 99.9% of bacteria you can pick up from any surface.

    Good luck! unfortunately i havve had my first cold of the year already :/

  • Tork Smart One - Smarter Than The Average Toilet Paper System

    Tork Smart One - The Smart System

    Tork smart one toilet paper dispenser

    The best selling Tork Smart One toilet tissue dispensers have become even smarter following the acquisition of lotus by Tork

    Tork have released a new smarter system which is shallower than the old units by 17mm and have updated the design to look even better than before.

    The Smart one toilet paper dispenser are nice and compact which allows them to fit into even the smallest of toilet cubicles. Plus the paper now has the Tork leaf design allowing your customers or staff to see they are using only the highest quality paper product.


    Popular toilet paper delivery system


    The main reason the tork smart one system is so popular is due to its cost in use, hygiene & sustainability compared to the others on the market,One of the main advantages nobody thinks about is the reduction of paper entering into the drainage system this reduces blockages and the costs involved in cleaning them up.

    The smart one system is EU Ecolabel certified and dispenses the paper via a new nozzle on the front of the dispenser and ensures only 1 sheet of paper is removed at a time. This automatically reduces your paper consumption by 40% and you should get an incredible 98 more visits per roll with the Tork smart one than a standard toilet roll.


    Stops cross contamination & Insertion of foreign objects


    The way the unit has been designed allows everything to be enclosed safely inside with only the paper sticking out. Some other toilet roll systems allow customers or staff to place their hands inside the dispenser which can lead to cross contamination.

    The enclosure of the Tork smart one dispenser also prevents the end user from inserting anything inside the dispenser.  This can be a major problem for hospitals or public convenience where needles and drugs may be hidden inside them.

    Saves consumption & Emissions


    By the very fact the smart one dispenser reduces consumption of your toilet rolls and less is wasted. Which means you will need to order less paper allowing you to save space in your storage room. But as a by product you will reduce the number of lorries travelling around the country to deliver the items which cuts emissions.

    There are three different types of Tork smart one dispenser, the white and blue original dispenser, the mini and the dual mini smart one dispensers.

    The Tork smart one dispenser has 1150 sheets per roll and is designed for medium to high traffic washroom areas. The mini has 620 sheets per roll of paper and the dual mini has 2 x 620 sheets per roll inside the dispenser.


    Vandal & Fire resistant


    They are all fire and vandal resistant which makes them a great product for the vulnerable toilet areas, plus they have a dual setting lock allowing you to set your own security level. All in all these are superb toilet paper dispensers perfect for low traffic to high traffic environments.

    Best of all they are tough, vandal resistant and save you money what more could you ask for?

    Obviously this post was about the Tork smart one toilet paper system but we do have other toilet paper dispensers available on our eCommerce site.

  • Hotel Hair Dryer - Valera Range Overview

    Valera hotel hair dryer by Swiss manufacturer Valera are used in many hotels or guest houses around the UK and they probably don't even know they have such a high quality unit.

    Valera have an extensive range of hair drying products  from simple hand held pluggable dryers all the way up to high usage wall mounted coin operated units and everything in between.

    At Washroom UK we have chosen a good selection from across the range of hair dryers they offer, we supply these on a next day delivery to UK addresses if ordered before 12pm.

    Basic Model Hotel Hair Dryer

    We start off with a basic hotel hair dryer the 1200W Action dryer, this as far as our range goes is a basic model, this unit is a simple plug and play meaning you pop it in a drawer and the customer can take it out and use where they need.

    It has 2 air flow settings and 3 heat settings which give a combination of 6 heat/air settings as required by the end user, this freedom allows your customers to go fast and hot or slow and cool if they need.

    Mid Range Hotel Hair Dryers

    A mid range hotel hair dryer from our range would be the 1200W Hotel Room Hair Dryer this unit has 3 options available in colour and wattage for instance white and chrome 1200W, black and chrome 1200W and a 1600W black and chrome model.

    These 3 options allow you to choose a dryer which will fit into your rooms current décor and wont look out of place if you have a redesign coming up.

    As with the basic model these dryers also offer a combination of 6 air and heat settings which offer your customers the ability to use the item as they need to and not what is pre determined.

    Top of the range hotel hair dryer


    For top of the range dryers you have 2 options available, you can go for the "stunning" gold or chrome or you can opt for the slightly less expensive but no less "Swiss Turbo" 1800W heavy duty dryer.

    Both these options are excellent for the busy rooms you run and have long life motors designed to last 2000+ hours of use.

    They also offer a combination of 6 heat and air options with the gold and chrome dryers offering "ions" which help keep your hair static free and quite frankly look absolutely amazing.

    None of the above dryers are for use in a bathroom area as they are not IP rated, if you are looking for a bathroom hair dryer then please contact us we can offer some advice and direction.

  • Washroom UK New look, New Products & New Blog

    ARG! So you have found our secret hidden away blog for washroom UK well done :)

    I am only joking, welcome to our new blog area!, along with our new site redesign we added this fancy washroom blog to write about industry news, products, information and basically anything we think will help you guys out.

    So our first post here is just letting you know what's going on at Washroom and basically the old site was about 4 years old and all the updates we had and modifications were starting to fall apart making the place look sloppy.

    Washroom UK Redesign, new blog and new products  

    New Look, New Year, New Washroom UK


    We love  the new design but we have changed the colour scheme from the light blues to orange and dark grey/black.

    Personally i preferred the old blue but this new grey orange/white is kinda nice too (and we snook in some blue add to cart buttons too) just to keep part of the old colour scheme alive.

    We are also adding a ton of new products to the site, these products are predominantly washroom related but we are going to branch out a little bit and find some nice new stuff for hotels and businesses.

    For instance we have a new range of hair dryers which can be used either in the toilet or changing room but also the hotel so that's a double whammy of goodness and new direction :)

    We will add more products as time goes on and we will bring that info here first letting you know what is going on.

    But we would also love to hear what you want us to deliver, if you have any ideas for blog posts or new products we could add please get in touch we would love to hear your thoughts.
