Happy Birthday SanTRAL®: 25 years of quality and reliability in public washrooms

Happy Birthday SanTRAL®: 25 years of quality and reliability in public washrooms

Stainless steel complete range meets the requirements for robust and sustainable solutions in public washrooms

Continuous development based on close dialogue with customers and users

Issum, February 26th. The success story of SanTRAL® began in 1991. The sturdy stainless steel series established itself wherever reliability and robustness are important - in catering establishments and hotels, in public and semipublic buildings, in stadiums, in train stations and airports, in schools or universities.

Today SanTRAL® offers complete solutions for public washrooms including both manual and automatic soap and disinfectant dispensers, paper towel dispensers, toilet paper dispensers, waste bins and many other accessories.

The name says it all: Available in more than 200 colour variations

The name of the series – SanTRAL® is a combination of the two elements SaniTary and RAL – is a reference to the numerous colour possibilities.
SanTRAL® products range from standard versions in stainless steel with durable Anti-Fingerprint-Coating (AFP) and white powder coated housings (RAL 9010) to more than 213 classic RAL colours all available for a small surcharge. This allows the SanTRAL® range to be adapted to individual requirements.

Timeless – and always up to date

Right from the start the original SanTRAL® product range, launched in 1991, convinced with its’ functional design. Even now this functional design is the identifying feature of the product range, fitting into the ambience of different washrooms and offering practical advantages: the slope on the top prevents the use of the product as a shelf and the flat surfaces with rounded edges make cleaning easier.

The ‘inner values’ also remain up to date - close dialogue with customers and users ensures all developments are made with their views in mind. Today SanTRAL® offers many detailed solutions such as an Anti-Fingerprint-Coating (AFP), products with sensors and dispensers with optimized paper withdrawal solutions for differing paper towel formats. This makes SanTRAL® a contemporary solution for all public washrooms, meeting today’s customer needs.

Ready for the future: SanTRAL® will be even „smarter“

What can you expect from SanTRAL® in the future? A continuation of the SanTRAL® success story, integrating tried and tested product features and trend-setting innovations into the overall concept. Robustness and longevity will be complemented and extended by more ‘smart’ functionality. The upcoming SanTRAL® „Smart Washroom“ dispensing systems will be capable of automatically monitoring filling levels, thus helping to avoid empty bottles.
In the health care sector our monitoring system has been successfully in operation since 2011.* For public washrooms it is also beneficial: Service staff can use reliable data to ensure an optimal refilling / service of all products – this helps to optimize service intervals and to improve operating costs in Facility Management.

The permanent availability of soap and paper towels is of the highest importance for any visitors to a public washroom – the supply of products plays a central role in basic hand hygiene, can significantly raise the quality standard and elevates the customer experience in public washrooms.

„SanTRAL remains loyal to all customers: long-standing hygiene solutions, reliable when permanently in use, modular in their individual set up - that is SanTRAL’s recipe for success”, concludes Patrick Stressler, Product Manager Washroom Solutions.

*since 2011 the OPHARDT Hygiene Monitoring System® supports medical institutions in the measurement of disinfectant usage.
