4 Essential Modern Staff Washroom Features
4 ESSENTIAL MODERN STAFF WASHROOM FEATURES
In the workplace, a trip to the loo is more than simply just a trip to the loo. Shared staff washrooms are not always the most pleasant places to visit. This negative experience can affect staff morale and consequently affect the business.
However, with an optimised configuration and new facilities, its never been easier to promote cleanliness and sanitation in workplace environments. Here are four essential staff washroom features if your business is thinking of upgrading.
Perhaps the most obvious essential feature in a modern washroom is modern products. The aim is to minimise hand contact within the room.
Touching fewer surfaces means fewer germs can escape from the bathroom and into the production area. The use of motion-activated products helps to achieve this. Some innovations include motion-activated taps, toilet flushers, soap dispensers, paper towel holders and hand dryers.
First and foremost, safety must be a priority in any environment. The flooring has to be slip-resistant even when the surface is wet. Typically, non-slip vinyl safety flooring like this offering from Forbo provides the most cost-effect solution. In addition to the slip resistance, this solution is easy to clean, preventing the spread of bacteria. Other materials to consider include; natural stone, ceramics, resin and terrazzo.
HYGIENIC WALL SURFACES
In a modern staff washroom, wall surfaces must be able to prevent the spread of bacteria and be exceptionally hard-wearing. An ideal solution that answers both of these problems is hygienic wall cladding. This solution is cleanable, resistant to staining and durable
AUTOMATED AIR FRESHENER
Perhaps not an obvious one but, that peculiar toilet smell is not one that anyone wants to come into contact with. It is fair to say that this stench is not always avoidable, and when you cannot, it is foul. Generally speaking, people tend to associate a smelly washroom environment with a dirty one and let’s face it, people talk. This issue could negatively affect your business. Perhaps the most efficient solution to this problem is an automatic air freshener. The intermittent sprays will not only disguise the malodours but will also eliminate them. Moreover, wall-mounted ones make the best use of available space
