Signature Sanitary Bins

Disposing of sanitary waste is a sensitive issue. Bathroom visitors can feel anxious about touching the surfaces of sanitary bins due to the potential harbouring of bacteria.

Our constant innovation and product development has resulted in an ultra-hygienic method to dispose of sanitary waste with Integrated Anti-Microbial surface technology helping to prevent the spread of bacteria.

It gives you peace of mind and confidence that you are providing your visitors and employees with a safe, discreet, easy to use, and hygienic sanitary disposal solution.

The Signature sanitary bins are available in manual, compact or no-touch (automatic) options and feature a BioSach insert which is used to combat any odours that may occur inside the units.
