Tork professional hygiene products have been helping Deakin University
deliver a consistent bathroom experience for staff, students and cleaners for
Having thousands of students on the rolls can place sudden demand on
services, particularly bathrooms at any university. Deakin University has been relying
on the high capacity Tork products to make sure their bathrooms are always ready
Spiro Fatouros, Services Manager (Contracts and Grounds) at Deakin
University explains that over 800 toilets across their four campuses use Tork
toilet paper and hand towels.
Tork has provided complete solutions at Deakin including toilet paper dispensers
in all bathrooms to offer a consistent experience for staff, students and most
particularly, cleaners. According to Fatouros, cleaners like consistency, which
is enabled by Tork’s dispensers that can be operated using the same keys and
locks to help refill toilet paper quickly.
The high capacity of Tork T1 toilet paper systems with jumbo rolls is a
major advantage because it not only reduces the need to re-stock but also
minimises pilferage. The lockable system and the jumbo size rolls, which are
harder to conceal, discourage potential thieves, resulting in huge savings for
Deakin takes their sustainability commitment very seriously, which is
reflected in their choice of consumables for their bathrooms. Tork professional
hygiene products selected by Deakin include toilet paper and hand towel refills
that are FSC certified and locally produced in Australia or New Zealand. Refills
manufactured in New Zealand additionally use natural geothermal steam in place
of gas during production, further reducing their impact.
Fatouros also finds Tork professional hygiene products easy to source
with a simple and efficient ordering and delivery system.
