The heart of a soap dispenser is the pump. The high user frequency and the expected lifetime of a soap dispenser in public washrooms place special demands on a dispenser and its inner workings. All our soap dispensers are therefore designed for public areas and equipped with a proven pump.
Of course, there are other aspects to consider when choosing a soap dispenser. Space requirements, design ideas or cleaning effort are just a few variables. In the following, we have compiled a few points to help you make a decision when choosing a soap dispenser:
For a normal user frequency, we recommend a tank size of 0.5 - 0.7 litres. This volume is completely sufficient and ensures that fresh soap is regularly refilled and available to the user. For high user frequency or low refill frequency, we have soap dispensers with 1 - 1.2 litre soap tanks.
Wall mounting or washbasin mounting:
This is a multi-layered decision. First and foremost is probably the question of design and space. Wall-mounted soap dispensers require space and should be placed thoughtfully. For example, soap residues on the floor are not nice and can attack the floor (natural stone). Often the mirror is also in the way during installation. Wall-mounted soap dispensers, on the other hand, allow the washbasins to be cleaned more quickly and are usually easy to install.
When choosing a soap dispenser, make sure that you are not tied to a software supplier. Remain as free as possible in choosing a good and at the same time cost-efficient soap. All our soap dispensers can be filled freely. Be careful not to use soaps and detergents containing strong chlorides. Chlorides attack stainless steel and plastics and drastically reduce the life of a soap dispenser! Stainless steel also begins to rust.
Soap dispensers that are operated by pushing are preferable. This is because handicapped and elderly people usually find it easier to press (heel of the hand) than to pull (fingertips). In addition, the pressure is directed to the wall during actuation. When pulled, the wall mounting and the soap dispenser can loosen over time.
