Featured products at the booth will include:

SofPull Automated Touchless towel dispenser
With its streamlined profile, this dispenser fits well in space constrained areas like patient rooms. One-at-a-time towel dispensing helps lower usage and reduces waste when compared with multifold towels. Also, automated, touch-free towel dispensing provides convenient hand drying to help reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

SofPull Mini bath tissue dispenser
Featuring a small profile and single-sheet dispensing, this tissue dispenser fits washrooms with limited space and helps cut consumption compared with standard roll bath tissue. SofPull tissue has no outer carton or inner wrapping, resulting in less packaging waste than standard single roll bath tissue.1 Tissue is enclosed in the dispenser, so users only touch the available sheet, helping reduce the spread of germs that might be found on standard bath tissue if not enclosed.

SafeHaven Automated Hygiene Monitoring System
The SafeHaven system has been designed to help increase hand hygiene participation by providing real time information, trending reports and feedback for the clinical staff and management team. It incorporates wireless monitoring technology into Georgia-Pacific Professional’s automated touchless dispensers to make it easier for healthcare professionals to practice and promote good hand hygiene and help create healthier environments in their facilities.

enMotion Touchless soap dispenser
Ideal for medical staff areas, patient rooms or public washrooms, this dispenser provides a controlled portion of gentle foam soap, germ-killing foam soap or foam sanitizer when a hand is placed under it. Automated touchless dispensing helps minimize risk of cross-contamination and control usage.
