Katrin Inclusive Dispensers recognised in industry product awards again

We are very pleased to announce that the Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range, has once more been shortlisted in two industry product awards, run by Tomorrows Cleaning and Tomorrows Care publications, (both published by Opus Business Media).

Each publication holds product awards every year, to look at product developments and innovations in the industry.  Products are nominated in late summer, and a panel within Opus “whittles” the list down to a “top 50” by December. This is already a very credible endorsement for these products, but this top 50 is published online and all readers then vote for their preferred top product, using an online survey from mid-January to Mid-March. Votes come from a wide variety of sources, including users, distributors, analysts, industry associations and manufacturers themselves.

If you haven’t yet done so, we would welcome your vote, to make Katrin Inclusive number 1 again…. You can vote here:

The links will be available until Friday 16th March. Winners will be announced shortly afterwards. Note: You can only vote once from each device, but you can vote from multiple devices… 

Metsa Tissue’s new Katrin Inclusive range was launched in the autumn of 2015, and came top in the awards in 2016, for Tomorrows Cleaning and Tomorrows FM. To have been nominated again, by our business partners, in the Cleaning Sector and now the Care Sector as well, shows that the Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range is innovative and pertinent right across the complex value chains in our industry.

About Katrin Inclusive: 
The new range has been designed in collaboration with industry experts, as well as a wide variety of customers and end-users right across Europe, and particularly takes into account the needs of a wide selection of users, including children, the elderly and those who are visually impaired, or have physical disabilities. Some of these features which make the dispensers unique include 

  • For those with restricted visibility, strong contrasting colours make the dispensers easier to see, especially when they are mounted on a wall of the same colour
  • Use of large "push faces" eliminates the need to turn 'wheels' to feed paper - something which as explained, can be difficult for some users
  • For all dispensers, the paper is very easy to remove, and can be pulled out with one hand.
  • Use braille text on all of the 'push faces' further helps visually impaired users in their everyday life.
  • Dispensers that open upwards make it much easier for people of all heights to fill and maintain the dispensers.
  • The full-face push surfaces make the dispensers effortless for users of any age to operate and simple graphical signage clearly shows how the dispensers should be used and maintained.
  • The dispensers also come with fitting guidance, including recommended heights to accommodate wheel chair users in disability washrooms.
