How to Choose the Right Commercial Toilet Paper for Your Facility

The right washroom utilities are cost-efficient, environmentally friendly and user friendly. In high traffic commercial bathrooms such as shopping centre facilities, often the first preference for toilet paper is value for money. For smaller facilities, the first preference may be softness and thickness for maximum comfort. No matter what facility size or preference, ensuring that you choose the best toilet paper is crucial to improve your washroom standards. To choose the best toilet paper for your facility, you need to examine the following: The Size and Traffic of your Facility The Style of your Bathroom Environmental Impacts and Septic Safety Cost Efficiency Plies and Sheets Per Toilet Paper Roll Why Does Ply Matter? If your focus is ensuring that your patrons have the most comfortable wipe then the higher the ply is generally going to provide you with greater thickness and overall comfort. Although the greater the ply could also lead to Septic tank clogging and result in costly repairs. Here’s why. The word ‘ply’ refers to the number of layers that the commercial toilet paper has. This means that 1-ply has one layer and 3-ply has 3 layers. While not all toilet paper was created equal as even some...

Cleaning Gym Floor

Struggling To Clean Your Gym Floors?

Why Clean Your Gym Floors? A clean gym environment is crucial to maintain membership rates and is the foundation for any great gym reputation. Members of your gym will not want to continue attending a gym that has dirty equipment, floors and has that ‘sweaty gym smell’. While cleaning your gym floors may not sound like a priority, a lot of traffic in and out of your gym will create dirt, grime as well as wear away at your gym floors. Good high-quality gym flooring is not cheap and it is important to protect those investments. Similarly, the health of your gym members should be a top priority and if your gym floors are not properly cleaned regularly, bacteria can build up and can create gunk which will make your gym floors a slip and health hazard as well as smell mouldy and sweaty. As a contract cleaner for a gym facility, it is important that you have high-quality commercial cleaning supplies that are going to deliver results without making a big dent in your budget. This is where multi-purpose equipment like scrubber-dryers as well as concentrated commercial cleaning chemicals are a great long term investment. So how do you...

Bioactive toilet paper

Environmentally friendly toilet paper that reduces blockages

At Abco, we take environmental responsibility seriously. That’s why we’ve developed a Bioactive Toilet Tissue that helps reduce pipe blockages and unpleasant odours in sewerage lines that is actually good for the environment. The patented Enviroplus Bioactive Tissue Paper consists of BATP technology where five natural microorganisms, safe for personal use and the environment activate when in contact with water. These active enzymes are produced to help the toilet tissue to become biodegradable in pipes and sewerage systems. Industries that can benefit from using Enviroplus Bioactive Toilet Paper include schools, airports, commercial and retail centres, cruise ships and hotels. In particular, one school that has benefited from the use of the Enviroplus Bioactive Toilet Paper Tissue is The International French School of Sydney. With over 1,000 students attending the institution, Greg Sawyer, the facilities manager of the institution approached Abco to find an alternative paper to help the school reduce its frequent number of pipe blockages due to the overuse of its facilities. Previously, using a top-quality 2ply virgin toilet paper, no matter how much the school paid for the paper, they were still having blockage issues regularly. After one year of the implementation of the Enviroplus Bioactive Toilet Tissue...

Green thumbs up!

Our Greenfleet Initiative When we talk about clean we don’t necessarily think green. We are changing this with a clear and strong Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program reinforcing our commitment to a sustainable business model and protecting our environment. In the past few years, we have launched our Enviroplus product range focusing on plant based and non-toxic cleaning solutions and this year, we are launching our new CSR Program in partnership with Greenfleet with a goal to plant up to 1000 trees a year in and around Australia. “From July 2018 onwards we will be donating 1c for every paper product carton sold under our brands Puregiene and Enviroplus to Greenfleet.  Greenfleet seemed like the right fit for our organisation as one of our key product categories is paper products. Although our paper is FSC certified, we felt compelled to ensure the future of our planet resources are looked after and Green Fleet’s ‘Plant a Forest’ program certainly assists in minimising the impact we have as an organisation on our environment and helps us empower our community.” (Deena Syed, National Marketing Manager, Abco Products) As an environmental non-profit, Greenfleet is the trusted carbon offset provider for thousands of leading organisations,...
