KCP launches ICON dispenser collection in Australia

ICON portfolio showcases three system solutions for paper towels, toilet tissue, and skincare options such as soap and sanitiser.

Kimberly-Clark Professional has announced the launch of its ICON dispenser collection in Australia and Singapore.

The ICON portfolio showcases three system solutions for paper towels, toilet tissue, and skincare options such as soap and sanitiser.

To gain a better understanding of how mindsets and attitudes towards hygiene and handwashing have shifted in the wake of the global pandemic, Kimberly-Clark Professional commissioned a survey1 among washroom end-users and choosers2 in Australia.

The survey revealed present-day perceptions of cleanliness alongside evolving hygiene habits, expectations, and standards, such as:

  • 63 per cent of public washroom end-users believe confidence in hygiene requires more than just the appearance of a clean facility.
  • Nearly 50 per cent of end-users surveyed indicated that touchless amenities such as touchless soap dispensers, touchless disposable paper towel dispensers and automatic doors are important to make them feel confident that the washroom facility is clean and hygienic.
  • Nearly 50 per cent of decision-makers of products in facilities expect public washroom hygiene to be better than now in the next 12 months.

According to Kimberly-Clark Professional, the ICON collection is designed around the servicer, facility manager, and end-user.

“Backed by teams of hygiene and innovation experts, the launch of the Kimberly-Clark Professional ICON dispenser demonstrates our commitment to delivering unmatchable confidence in the washroom,” said Nicole Wu, Vice President of Asia-Pacific, Kimberly-Clark Professional.

“As higher expectations of cleanliness become a lasting benchmark, we want to be a trusted provider of game changing hygiene for the well-being and safety of all users and choosers. The ICON collection offers a new standard with a ‘touchless’ experience as an imperative part of the washroom.”

The ICON collection features an easy-to-read intuitive control panel, and easily visible lighting and servicing cues on control panel indicating new roll requirements, paper jams, and low battery. ICON designs available in Australia include silver mosaic, white mosaic, and ebony woodgrain.

1 The research was commissioned by Kimberly-Clark Professional. It surveyed 403 washroom end-users and 152 choosers of Restroom/Hygiene and/or wiping products across Australia. The research was carried out in January 2022.
