Soap dispensers have become an indispensable addition to bathrooms everywhere, from the home to the workplace, and in the many public and commercial settings where they’ve long been a staple of hygiene made easy. They are notably more hygienic than soap bars, which quickly and easily gather germs, especially in public bathrooms. Automatic soap dispensers — also known as hands free soap dispensers — make the handwashing process more convenient and significantly more sanitary, as they do not require you to touch any areas where contaminants gather. Soap dispensers also offer cost-effectiveness by dispensing a predetermined measurement of liquid soap, minimising waste and ensuring optimal usage with each application.

If you’re considering a liquid soap dispenser for your humble home, or you’re shopping for commercial soap dispensers for a public establishment, or read on to learn how a soap dispenser can enhance the hygiene and convenience of any bathroom, or browse the Britex range of high quality stainless steel soap dispensers here.

The Difference Between a Manual Soap Dispenser & an Automatic Soap Dispenser

The chief, and (perhaps obvious) distinction between a manual soap dispenser and an automatic soap dispenser is that the latter is equipped with a sensor that is capable of detecting the user’s hand motion which triggers the dispensation of a predetermined amount of liquid soap. In contrast, manual dispensers necessitate manual operation, such as pushing down to compress the pump and dispense soap. While a manual version still typically dispenses a predetermined measurement of liquid soap, it does require you to touch an element of the dispenser, which can be unhygienic as it increases the risk of transferring germs and bacteria. Manual and automatic soap dispensers can also differ in price as well as aesthetics. Britex offers a diverse selection of commercial soap dispensers, with stainless steel, automatic and designer range hands-free options.
