BuyDirect Offers Various Types of Bathroom Paper Towels 

Finding the right paper towel for your business restrooms doesn’t seem like it should be that big a deal. However, once you start shopping for these supplies, you will discover that there are more options available than you imagined. 

If you don’t know the difference between roll towels, multi-fold and hardwound, you may not find the right product for your office. To ease the confusion and help you through the process, we are going to explain the differences between the various types of restroom paper towels

Roll Towels

A paper towel roll for your business can come in sizes that range from 350 to 1,200 feet in length. Typically, they are available in natural brown or white and come in cartons that contain six or 12 rolls (depending on the size of the rolls). 

Restroom Paper Towels

Roll towels are often placed in paper towel roll dispensers and can be either pulled manually or dispensed automatically. In general, these are some of the most common and economical restroom paper options that you can buy for your business. 

Hardwound Towels 

Hardwound paper towels are similar to roll towels as the paper is wrapped around a central core. They usually don’t have separate sheets, and they need to be placed in paper towel roll dispensers. 

Hardwound towels are a great option if your restroom sees a lot of traffic because the flatness of the towel means there is more surface area for people to dry their hands on. People will use less product, and these towels can be dispensed slowly and in a portion-controlled manner, reducing waste. 

In addition, the entire roll gets used. If you get small core hardwound towels, you’ll get even more product on each roll. 

Folded Towels 

When it comes to folded paper towels, there are several options to choose from, which may have you wondering what the difference is between multi-fold and C-fold paper towels. 

As the name implies, a C-fold paper towel is folded in the shape of a C. These paper towels are not interlocked with one another, so they lay on top of one another. They can be placed in a dispenser that will distribute them one at a time. Since these towels aren’t interlocked, the next one in the pile may not automatically pop out, so you may have to pinch and pull to use them. 

Containers That Are Good for the Planet

A multi-fold paper towel has an extra fold, making it look like a Z. This allows the towels to interlock with one another. When a person pulls out one towel another will pop out of the dispenser. Like C-fold towels, multi-fold towels can be dispensed one at a time. 

The Best Paper Towel for Your Business Bathroom

When it comes to deciding which paper towel is best for your business, there are several factors to consider. The first is the amount of traffic your bathrooms see. If they are used a lot, then getting paper towels that are economical and will last a long time may be in your best interest.
