Title
(EN) VANDAL-RESISTANT WASHROOM DISPENSERS
(FR) DISTRIBUTEURS POUR TOILETTES RESISTANTS AU VANDALISME
Abstract
(EN)
An improved vandal-resistant paper towel dispenser for public washrooms includes a mechanism for storing and dispensing paper towels (14, 16) and an outer housing (12) for encasing the mechanism. The outer housing includes a rear mounting surface (18) that is adapted to be secured to a wall, and a shell-like forward surface (22), connected to the rear mounting surface, for protecting the mechanism from individuals who might have destructive intent. Advantageously, the shell-like forward surface is softly rounded to an extent that it is practically impossible to obtain a handhold on the top or sides of the outer housing, whereby a vandal will be prevented from grabbing the dispenser and pulling it off the wall.
(FR)
Un distributeur de serviettes en papier pour toilettes publiques, résistant au vandalisme, comprend un mécanisme permettant de stocker et de distribuer des serviettes en papier (14, 16) et un boîtier externe (12) abritant le mécanisme. Le boîtier externe comporte une surface arrière de fixation (18) conçue pour être fixée sur un mur, et une surface avant en forme de coquille (22), reliée à la surface arrière, qui permet de protéger le mécanisme des individus cherchant à le casser. De manière avantageuse, la surface avant ayant une forme de coquille régulièrement arrondie, il est pratiquement impossible de trouver un point de prise au sommet ou sur les côtés du boîtier externe, ce qui empêche un vandale de saisir le distributeur pour l'arracher du mur.
