following are actual costs of a busy shopping centre in one of the most sort after
up-market suburbs in Darwin, Australia; a city of around 120,000 people. (Note, this is NOT the
slum part of the city).
The centre has 11 toilet cubicles and in
the last six years 55 dispensers have been replaced because of vandalism! That
is nearly one per cubicle per year. This is about right and quite normal.
If they replace with a cheap dispenser
(say $30), plus a tradesman's fee to fix the new unit (say $120), that is $150 per time times
55 is $8,250 and divided by 6 years makes $1,375 per year.
The tissue cost (using jumbos, which are
universal today) is $13.87 per day or $5,062 per year. So the total cost per year (vandalism
and tissue cost) is $6,437.
If they had been using Rollfast, the tissue cost
would drop from $5,062 to around $3,544 per year (see the "Jumbo Tissue Costs More" page on
this website) and you can confidently expect and budget on no replacement costs because of
So the total cost would drop from $6,437 per
year to an estimated $3,544, a saving of $2,893.
Rollfast Mark II will retail @ $120 X 11
cubicles = $1,320 + fitting @ $120 = $1,320 so the total cost would be
So one year of
savings are greater than the cost of Rollfasts installed in all cubicles!! Plus huge
savings ever after!!
How many operators of public toilet facilities
could resist that offer?
