While many are awe-inspired by the improved washroom luxury, the pressing need for hygienic washrooms has led many others to adopt best practices which make a Smart Washroom possible. In a series, starting from this issue, CIJ will be carrying articles on what go into making a Smart Washroom. Smart washrooms are designed to meet the customer needs, says Matthew Wonnacott, Marketing Manager, Vectair Systems Inc. Such washrooms are a unique experience for the user. Having an automatic fragrance dispenser that only disperses a fragrance in a time interval that best meets the facilities ‘traffic’ would be considered smart – or a fully automated hand dryer that users do not have to touch to function, thus reducing the bacteria spreading to different surfaces is smart. Concisely put, “these washrooms are built with the latest technologies and are independent of manual intervention for maximum applications”, says Kartik Iyengar, Marketing Manager - Fabric Care & Personal Care, South Asia, Diversey India Pvt Ltd. Sensor based urinals or toilets which senses human presence and activates the flushing system, aesthetic looking tissue paper for face, hands & toilet, feminine hygiene bin for sanitary waste disposal, liquid hand wash dispensers with accurate dosing system, hand dryers… all make smart washrooms.
