Industry research shows that people prefer to touch as few surfaces as possible when in public restrooms. In response to this demand, Bradley offers its new Center Pull Towel/Waste Receptacle Unit (Model 236). With the Center Pull, users don’t have to touch a handle, other dry towels or any other part of the dispenser to dry their hands. The unit is made of heavy-duty stainless steel, making it extremely durable. It is available in recessed and semi-recessed models, as well as a surface-mounted unit with a 12-gallon waste receptacle. The dispenser accommodates pull-towel rolls up to 9 inches in diameter.
