The Indispensable Soap Dispenser

In schools, public bathrooms, and offices across the country, soap dispensers have become an integral part of your fight against bacteria and illness. But how do they help your overall cleaning programme? We’re going to look at the Purus foam soap dispenser and provide you with everything you need to know about the effectiveness of regular hand washing.

Perfect for High Traffic Areas

Sealed soap dispensers are much safer than unsealed dispensers or bars of soap. The myth around bacteria on soap dispensers is one that is unfounded, especially in the case of a sealed soap unit. This is where the Purus system comes in.

Our easy-to-load, high capacity Purus soap dispensers are ideal for high footfall washrooms. With over 7,500 doses per refill, a lockable casing, and a new nozzle with every pouch, our soap dispensers protect you from cross-contamination. The foam lather also reduces your soap usage allowing you to increase the total number of doses. 

No Contact System

Another added benefit of our system is it is completely touch-free. Activated by a sensor, every user receives a generous dose of foam without having to touch a thing. This reduces the number of hands that have to touch the soap dispenser and makes it easier to keep your bathrooms safe and free of bacteria.

Reduce Water Usage

Foaming hand soap is also better for your drains and water usage. As the soap is already in a lather, you’ll find users require less water to wash their hands. The foam is also thinner and less likely to clog drains. This means that whether for cleaning, hygiene, or environmental reasons, choosing a foam based product like Purus is a great choice. 

Stylish and Hardwearing

Last but not least, choosing a soap dispenser doesn’t mean having to go with something bulky and plain. Our stylish Purus system is sleek, minimalist, and available in neutral black and white. This means you don’t have to compromise on safety and sanitation for style. Instead, our systems fit seamlessly into your design and offer easy maintenance and use without looking cheap.

Why Washing Your Hands is Important

Washing your hands prevents illness and the spread of infection. Germs and bacteria can live just about anywhere. From keyboards and light switches to tables, mobile phones, and handrails, your body is constantly coming into contact with contaminated areas. Regular hand washing is your first line of defence against these would-be invaders. This is especially important in areas such as healthcare, childcare, and working with food products.

According to the CDC, even just educating people about handwashing can have a positive effect with community projects achieving incredible results;

  • Reduces the number of people who get sick with diarrhea by 23-40%
  • Reduces diarrheal illness in people with weakened immune systems by 58%
  • Reduces respiratory illnesses, like colds, in the general population by 16-21%
  • Reduces absenteeism due to gastrointestinal illness in schoolchildren by 29-57%

Along with this awareness and practice, washing your hands reduces instances of getting sick. This means fewer trips to the doctor, and less reliance on antibiotics. This domino effect even has an effect on the antibiotic resistance of germs. With fewer cases of illnesses (thanks to washing your hands), the less people rely on antibiotics and the less diseases can evolve to become resistant. This shows that even the simple act of washing your hands can help global healthcare while protecting you and your friends, family, and colleagues.

If you’re interested in finding out more, then do not hesitate to contact us. We help a number of establishments implement smarter washroom solutions. Whatever challenges you face in your high footfall environment, we are capable of supporting the education sector, hospitality, sports/leisure attractions and large businesses to reduce their washroom waste.
