Take tighter control over the spread of infection with new Scott® Control range

Kimberly-Clark Professional has launched the new Scott® Control Toilet Tissue system to complete its Scott® Control washroom solution, specifically designed for Healthcare Professionals delivering the highest standards of hygiene without compromising on efficiency.  The new Scott® Control Toilet Tissue System is compatible with the Aquarius* Dispenser – the most hygienic dispenser versus the competition.1 It has the highest capacity centrefeed system on the market and comes with guaranteed 100% dispensing reliability.2

The range also includes the Scott® Control Rolled Hand Towel System and the Scott® Control Foam Hand Cleanser System, the complete Scott® Control washroom solution helps to fight against the spread of germs at every stage of the washroom.

25,000 people in Europe die from HAIs every year3 and HAIs across Europe cost the healthcare industry seven billion Euros a year.4 Kimberly-Clark Professional understands how important it is to stop the spread of infection within a healthcare environment.

Scott® Control Toilet Tissue is dispensed through the high-hygiene, one-wipe-clean Aquarius* Dispenser. This sealed unit has no dirt traps. The roll is fully enclosed in the dispenser, which prevents cross-contamination as users only touch the sheet they use, and the roll isn’t exposed to airborne germ particles. The flat-to-wall design makes the Aquarius* dispenser an excellent choice for use in small spaces. It also has an enclosed lockable system, limiting the possibilities to damage or tamper with the unit.

The new Scott® Control Toilet Tissue System has been specifically designed to help control and reduce usage with the new centrefeed format, whilst providing the highest standards of hygiene. With high capacity 314m rolls containing 1280 sheets, the Scott® Control Toilet Tissue System helps reduce refill events freeing up cleaning staff time to perform other tasks.

The consistent, smooth dispensing means the Scott® Control Toilet Tissue system is 100% reliable every single time.2 User satisfaction is enhanced by the softer Scott® 2-ply tissue, which is designed to dissolve and break down in water, helping to prevent blockages and keep toilet maintenance down.

“The Scott® Control washroom solution is an important tool in helping to stop the spread of HAIs throughout healthcare. It encourages good hygiene practice, helping to stop the spread of infection by ensuring hygienic products are in place at every stage of the washroom. With Scott® Control healthcare sites can achieve the highest levels of hygiene, cleanliness and care without compromise,” says Simon Justice, Healthcare Segment Marketing Manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional.

Hand washing and drying are critical for controlling the spread of infection and reducing cross contamination in healthcare sites. However, on average 61% of health workers do not adhere to the recommended hand hygiene practices.5 Skin irritation is the No. 1 reason for the failure of hand hygiene compliance in hospitals6 so ensuring washrooms offer a good and reliable supply of easy and nice to use products is important to encourage better hand hygiene practice.

The range also features the Scott® Control Rolled Hand Towel designed for improved hygiene and efficiency. The system provides 40% more dries, meaning fewer refills than equivalent competitor systems.7 For hospital cleaning teams, this brings improved operational efficiency.

Made with patented Airflex* Fabric Technology, Scott Control® Hand Towels have a softer texture and achieve superior absorbency for a better hand dry. Designed to be kinder to hands,7 the Scott® towels actively encourage hand hygiene compliance. The unique stamp embossing of Scott® Control Rolled Hand Towels increases user preference further by more than 40%.8

The Aquarius* Dispenser has a one-wipe clean design with no dirt traps that might harbour bacteria, helping to fight against cross-contamination. 9 It is a compact design with a never run out feature that ensures a continuous rolled towel supply – critical for hand hygiene compliance. The stub roll does not feed twice, and the transition to the new roll is seamless. This means less time is required for refilling dispensers and the single-sheet dispensing system helps keep washrooms tidier making less work for domestic managers and their busy cleaning teams.1

The final product in the Scott® Control washroom bundle is Scott® Control Foam Frequent Use Hand Cleanser, which helps to encourage compliance with good hand hygiene practice alongside further efficiencies. The Scott® Control Foam Frequent Use Hand Cleanser is fragrance and colour-free helping to maintain good hygiene without irritating skin. The foam soap also has cost-in-use efficiency benefits when compared to a liquid soap – it delivers 2,500 shots from the one-litre cassette compared with 1,000 shots for the liquid alternative.

Foam soap may also help healthcare establishments to achieve sustainability targets as it uses between 16-45% less water to wash hands than using liquid soap. For every 100-people employed this equates to a potential annual reduction in water usage of as much as 56,000 litres.10
