Bathroom Dispensers

Bathroom dispensers, typically referring to soap dispensers and product dispensers, are devices that offer common bathroom products in small, single-use quantities. Bathroom dispensers are found in domestic bathrooms as well as public restrooms and they can be manually operated by a control handle or automatically by a sensor. Automatic controls in soap dispensers are often coupled with automatic faucets, and they aim to conserve the quantity of product used while also curbing disease transmission. Liquid soap was patented in 1985, and the entire supply of plastic pumps needed to dispense the soap cornered the market. Today, the design of bathroom dispensers is dependent on whether the soap dispensers use liquid, powder, or foam.

Where is the best place to mount a paper towel dispenser in a bathroom?

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association a paper towel dispenser in a bathroom should be mounted 26 inches (66 cm) from the floor on center and be placed 8 to 12 inches (20 – 30 cm) from the center of the toilet to the facing wall. If you are not able to mount the paper towel dispenser consider a free-standing dispenser.

How do you mount a soap dispenser on a bathroom wall?

To mount a soap dispenser on a bathroom wall, start off by determining its location considering who will use it and how accessible it is to everyone. Afterwards mark its position by using a pencil to mark the points where screws will go. Start drilling, then attach the backing of the wall mounted soap dispenser, and finish by assembling the soap dispenser.

Where should the bathroom soap dispenser be located?

A bathroom soap dispenser should be located next to the sink so that the user does not need to walk away from the sink. They should be installed 40 to 48 inches (102 – 122 cm) above the floor with the dispenser’s push button no higher than 44 inches (112 cm) above the floor.
