The new Kimberly-Clark Professional™ ICON™ dispenser collection is officially being launched in the UK at The Cleaning Show 2023. Visitors to stand F25 are invited to share in the company’s vision of “Better Care for a Better World” as it unveils the Kimberly-Clark Professional™ ICON™ dispenser collection, a high-performance and touchless set of dispensing systems providing game-changing design and hygiene.
In the wake of Covid-19, research commissioned by Kimberly-Clark Professional™, and carried out by GfK in Europe, has underlined that now more than ever, washroom users need reassurance that their hygiene, safety and health are a top priority when they step into a washroom.
Kimberly-Clark Professional ICON™ – Function meets design
While most dispensers are designed around paper, the Kimberly-Clark Professional™ ICON™ collection is designed around the human experience – the servicer, facility manager and end-user.
Function meets design with the Kimberly-Clark Professional™ ICON™, developed to maximise a human-centric experience with minimal contact points and sensor technology providing unmatched confidence for reliable and hygienic dispensing. The Kimberly-Clark Professional™ ICON™ range features three dispenser system solutions for hand towels, toilet tissue and skincare, including soap and sanitiser. Customers have the option of changeable designer faceplates for hand towel and skincare dispensers.
“Backed by teams of hygiene and innovation experts, the launch of the Kimberly-Clark Professional™ ICON™ dispenser demonstrates our commitment to delivering unmatchable confidence in the washroom,” said Craig Bowman, General Manager UK at Kimberly-Clark Professional™. “As higher expectations of cleanliness become a lasting benchmark, we want to be a trusted provider of game-changing solutions for hygiene and safety for our users and choosers.”
The RightCycle™ Programme – towards zero waste to landfill
Visitors will also view a showcase of the award winning RightCycle™ Programme by Kimberly-Clark Professional™, a closed loop recycling service for hand towels and the world’s first dispenser installation and recycling service. The RightCycle™ Programme helps businesses achieve their zero waste to landfill goals, with no upfront costs or additional labour by transforming used hand towels and old dispensers into new products – giving them a second life.
The RightCycle™ Programme enables businesses to reduce their waste footprint by up to 25 per cent and increase a building’s recycling rate by up to five per cent – helping to achieve sustainability goals and to develop the circular economy today and for the future.
