Roll up, roll up! Read all about our roller towels

Having the right drying facilities is a must for any washroom. There are a lot of different solutions, from hand dryers to paper towels that people are familiar with seeing in workplaces and public toilets. Roller towels are a convenient washroom solution that is easy to maintain, providing you with an affordable drying product for your workplace. 

phs Group and phs Besafe have teamed up to provide customers a complete roller towel service, which includes everything from the sale or service of the cabinets to the laundry and delivery of the towels. This 360-degree approach ensures customers enjoy all the benefits, without any of the hassle.

The importance of good hand hygiene 

There are many reasons why hand hygiene is important. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, good hand hygiene is: 

  • The most cost-effective health action to reduce disease 
  • If everyone washed their hands regularly, one million deaths a year could be prevented 
  • Regular hand washing can also reduce the risk of respiratory illnesses such as colds and flu by 16–21%. 

Having adequate handwashing facilities in your workplace or property can help you promote better hygiene. This is important in healthcare, hospitality, and education environments, but benefits all workplaces. Not only do excellent handwash facilities help keep people safe, but they can stop the spread of colds and other viruses that cause absenteeism.  

Creating a safe and hygienic washroom space  

Having roller towels in your washroom helps people wash and dry their hands effectively, helping you to create a safe and hygienic space for visitors. 

It’s important that all facilities are fully stocked with items such as handwash, hand sanitiser, roll towels and more. Regular inspections of your facilities can ensure users have everything they need, while also ensuring the space remains pleasant to use too. 

So why roller towels?


Everyone has their own opinion on what hand drying method is the most effective and most hygienic, however roller towels continue to be a staple choice for many workplaces. They are effective at removing soap, dirt and dead skin cells from hands, and are convenient and low-maintenance. Our DRYWISE® roller towels are treated with a silver anti-microbial technology called N9 Pure Silver™, meaning that the cotton towel will be totally bacteria free before use. N9 Pure Silver is bacteriostatic and gently defensive, and stays on hands, protecting them against "bad" bacteria without affecting the skin's natural balance.

Cotton towels also have minimum impact on the environment (unlike paper towels), and don’t require electricity. So, roller towels would be the perfect washroom option for industries such as manufacturing, farming or construction, where workers tend to deal with oil and grease and quite often in locations without electricity.

The other benefit of course is that roller towels are quiet. It’s a well-known fact that small children can fear loud noises, so they are the perfect solution in schools or nurseries. Our standard cabinet roller towels are really easy to use, and the unit is designed to eliminate the problem of towels jamming. Plus, there’s no fear of countless paper towels being wasted, or thrown around a washroom, in over-flowing bins or clogging up toilets and urinals.

Laundry service

And there’s more good news. Once all the towels have been used, an award-winning laundry will clean them all! Winner of the 2018 Commercial Laundry of the Year award, phs Besafe will collect all dirty towels, clean them, and deliver freshly laundered towels to your door. Laundering 1.2 million garments every year, the industrial towel washing service kills all viruses, leaving towels clean, fresh and free of bacteria. Ready to be used all over again!

Roller towels and other washroom facilities 

Roller towels can be used as your sole drying product for your washroom, or they can be used alongside other washroom facilities such as hand dryers or paper towels. This gives your users a choice, catering to different needs and providing users with a choice of how they want to dry their hands. 

Make sure you always have a fully stocked washroom with the help of phs Besafe’s managed service. With everything taken care of on your behalf, you can feel confident knowing you always have what you need to maintain your washroom areas.
