Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) July 06, 2011 -- Georgia-Pacific Professional is proud to announce the latest product in its towel dispensing systems. The new SofPull® mechanical towel dispenser is designed to help reduce waste, overhead costs and cross-contamination with its convenient, controlled one-at-a-time sheet dispensing system.
The SofPull towel dispenser features a completely enclosed roll with sheet-by-sheet feeding that helps keep towels sanitary and prevents cross-contamination from users. With a gentle pull, the dispenser quietly releases one fresh sheet, helping to reduce excess waste.
A water resistant model is also available and includes a closeable hatch designed to lock out moisture and keep towels dry during wash-downs. These dispensers are ideal for wet environments such as food processing facilities.
"The SofPull towel dispenser's design is an excellent way to help increase hand hygiene and health," said Michael Dunn, vice president and general manager - Georgia-Pacific Professional's towel category. "Not only does the dispenser help eliminate cross-contamination, but it helps reduce facility costs with fewer roll changes. This new product demonstrates Georgia-Pacific Professional's commitment to quality products that are better for the user, customer and environment."
The SofPull towel dispenser is part of Georgia-Pacific Professional's Green by Design environmentally sustainable product line. Towels are available in both white and brown. The brown towel is made with 100% recycled fiber and is a certified EcoLogo® product. Both the white and brown towels meet EPA standards for recycled fiber content. The 1,000 ft. high capacity roll is designed for continuous dispensing and helps reduce overall service visits. The dispensers are available in Translucent Smoke color, which creates better visibility of the enclosed rolls and compliments most washroom designs.
