ADA Paper Towel Dispenser

ADA Paper Towel Dispenser

ADA Paper Towel Dispenser

ANSI 117 specifies that toilet paper dispensers "... shall not be of a type that control delivery, or do not allow continuous paper flow." Does this apply to roll paper towel dispensers, too? Bradley and Bobrick's roll towel dispensers are controlled-delivery. Can they be used in ADA toilet rooms?

RE: ADA Paper Towel Dispenser

No. The reason for the limitation on controlled delivery for toilet paper is to prevent maintenance issues with mechanical parts. It would be much more of a problem if the toilet paper was not available because of jamming than for a paper towel dispenser. You can always dry your hands on your pants...not so with other parts!
