Creating excellent washroom facilities within your gym begins with identifying the best and most appropriate washroom products and accessories. With many factors to consider when selecting your washroom’s equipment, we’re taking a look at some of the key focal points:

High-Traffic Environments

Gyms can be busy places, with hundreds or even thousands of people coming and going every day. Gym washroom facilities will be in very high demand, and so you don’t want your products and equipment to let you down during peak times.

Users of your facilities should always have access to appropriate levels of hygiene, as washroom equipment that has reached capacity or ran out of dispensable goods is a major inconvenience. It is important to understand how users interact with your washroom in order to provide them with the most effective and appropriate commercial washroom products, even during your busiest periods.

It is important to consider your washrooms space, as too large or too many products may further contribute to a congested atmosphere, making slimline space-saving products a great alternative approach.

Recessed units and dispensers housed behind mirrors help to keep areas and walk ways clear from obstruction.


In addition to continuous use, your facilities’ products will experience, your washroom’s equipment will inevitably take a few accidental knocks and hits along the way. After an extended period of time, some products may begin to operate inefficiently or look aesthetically unkempt and unprofessional.

Preventing Cross-Contamination

Public spaces such as gyms have many objects and surfaces which are touched by many people on a regular basis. This frequent sharing of objects results in many hotspots for germs and bacteria forming throughout your facilities, creating the potential for cross-contamination. Your average washroom already contains many notable germ hotspots, so extra caution is required when this is combined with a gym environment where further carriers of germs, such as sweat, are spread across shared equipment.
