Restrooms are found in all restaurants. Many come in all shapes & sizes. But, what’s common between them all is the necessary equipment to keep your restroom in working order. Since the restroom should be a place of hygiene & cleanliness, having stainless steel equipment inside the restroom is even better. Why?
In this article, we’ll explore the four pieces of equipment to include in your restroom lineup & why picking stainless steel items is a smart decision. Let’s start.
1. Hand Sinks
Handwashing is the single most important hygienic practice. However, handwashing cannot be performed without a dedicated hand sink! Hand sinks come in many varieties such as wall mounted or free standing, but the most important function of them is delivering warm & cold water to your hands.
Hand sink faucets can be manual or automatic, depending on your needs. Knee or foot pedal valves can also be installed for a touch free experience. ADA compliant versions of hand sinks also exist to cater to individuals with disabilities/limited mobility. Here’s a quick look at some IMC stainless steel hand sink offerings to consider:
2. Soap Dispensers
Soap dispensers help prevent the spread of germs, therefore reducing illnesses & spread of disease. Without the use of soap, handwashing would go to waste. Having a functioning soap dispenser in your restroom is paramount.
Two types of soap dispensers exist: manual & automatic. Soap dispensers also have different capacities, aesthetics & can take liquid or foam soap. Here’s a quick look at IMC’s offerings:
3. Towel Dispensers
Once you are done washing your hands thoroughly with soap & water, you will need to dry them off. Towel dispensers are the easiest way to achieve this. Towel dispensers can accompany rolled or folded paper towel designs. As a bonus, many come equipped with a soap dispenser integrated into the body providing convenient access to soap & towels at the sink. Here’s a glance at IMC’s towel dispenser offerings:
4. Waste Receptacles
Even in a restroom, the issue of litter can be a lingering problem. There is simply no way to avoid this. This is why waste receptacles should be visible & monitored regularly. The truth of the matter is trash cans enable your patrons to throw away garbage without leaving it around your restroom.
A ton of varieties exist in the market, and some state & local jurisdictions require a certain number of trash cans to be present. Here’s a look at Model #WRC, IMC’s own stainless steel waste receptacle:
But Why Stainless Steel?
We all know that plastic & aluminum varieties of the above equipment exist. However, stainless steel is simply the better choice of material to use for these items.
The truth of the matter is stainless steel requires minimal maintenance. A simple damp cloth with a non-abrasive cleaning agent is all that is needed for full disinfection. Stainless steel also has an inherent non-corrosive, protective surface that resists rust. Finally, stainless steel offers the best strength & durability. This means longer life cycles & less replacement costs for you. Furthermore, IMC utilizes type 300 series stainless steel, which is the best material to use in the food service industry.
