Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- The enMotionÂ® family of touchless towel dispensers has a new member â enMotionÂ® with Lotion towels. The innovative hand drying solution is the only moisture-activated lotion towel in the away-from-home market.
enMotion with Lotion towels have been designed with softness in mind to help protect hands from the signs of dryness, cracking and scaling1 â a common issue among employees required to engage in frequent hand washing. Release of the lotion applied to the towels is enhanced when in contact with water, typically after hand washing.
With a keen understanding of the industries it serves, Georgia-Pacific Professional provides innovative products that improve the washroom experience. Coupled with the enMotion touchless dispensing system, enMotion with Lotion towels can help increase hand washing compliance and help reduce cross-contamination, ultimately helping food industry employees maintain important hygiene, food safety and sanitation methods.
âGeorgia-Pacific Professional recognized the challenges employees in various industries endure from frequent hand washing, and used this feedback to develop solutions to address this common issue,â said Craig Yardley, vice president and general manager - towel category. âWe are hopeful that enMotion with Lotion towels will be a key pillar as we work to promote better hand hygiene compliance and improve the experience of employees that take a particular interest in hand hygiene like food service employees.â
According to a Food and Drug Administration study, poor hygiene accounted for 31.2 percent of the risk factors that contribute to food contamination. enMotion with Lotion towels were designed to help combat these types of health and hygiene concerns for companies in the food service industry.
The enMotion with Lotion towel is part of Georgia-Pacific Professionalâs goal to create products that are cost effective and increase both hygiene and environmental awareness among users.
As part of this effort, together the enMotion with Lotion towels and enMotion automated touchless wall-mount dispensers comply with Georgia-Pacific Professionalâs Green by Designâ¢ program. This unique program provides source reduction benefits that distinguish the enMotion brand.
To ensure a better customer experience and convenient transition to this new product, the enMotion with Lotion roll towels were designed to fit in the enMotion automated touchless wall-mount dispensers and the enMotion Impulse 10 dispensers. enMotion dispensers are only available for lease through an authorized distributor.
