Hygiene in the washroom

Hygiene is becoming increasingly important in washrooms. Especially in heavily frequented sanitary rooms of public buildings, the requirements for hygiene are increasing.We show you clever solutions to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses in washrooms with high public traffic.

A comprehensive study by scientists from the University of Westminster recently showed that replacing hand drying blowers with paper towel dispensers significantly improves hygiene in washrooms.

The new HEWI dispenser systems in the sanitary area enable hygiene in public and semi-public areas to be increased and at the same time meet the highest standards of design and functionality.
