Psychiatric facilities exist as a safe space for those who need treatment so they can return to the community without being a danger to themselves or others. These havens’ role cannot be understated, but the public rarely sees the careful planning and budgeting that goes into running one of these facilities.
The biggest struggle to maintain for any mental health facility manager is the bathroom. Public bathrooms are often destroyed because they let anyone and everyone in, but at a psychiatric hospital, the very people using the bathroom are at risk of destroying it or using it to injure themselves. This makes it doubly important to maintain a clean, safe environment.
The cost of cleaning, maintaining, and replacing dispensers builds up over time, cutting into an already tight budget that would better serve to help those staying at your facility. Traditional plastic soap and paper towel dispensers are easily damaged or contaminated. Psychiatric facilities need something sturdier and indestructible to handle potential negative behaviors and dangerous situations.
Made From 12 to 16 gauge stainless steel!
To ensure your bathrooms stay clean, safe, and well-maintained, your facility needs tamper-proof paper towel, toilet paper, and bathroom soap dispensers. OPS Vandal Proof products are the perfect solution. Each of our products are indestructible, as well as ligature-resistant, meaning both your bathroom and patients’ health will be more secure. Each of our products works with a special OPS-mounting system that prevents people from tearing your dispensers off the wall. They all can be unlocked with the same key as well, making maintenance even easier to keep up.
You May Not Know This About Dispensers
Is Your Dispenser Secure From Vandalism
Traditional soap dispensers lack key security features that could benefit your facility. They can be torn open, ripped off the wall, or broken easily. They can also be easily contaminated by needles, making it easy for people who abuse substances to clean their needles with a quick insertion. Our stainless-steel soap dispenser features a lock system that prevents potential misuse, making it impossible for addicts to take advantage of them.

Most basic plastic soap dispensers only supply a mere 600 activations per refill. This may seem like enough, but frequent use can easily use up a cartridge. On average, other refills need to be replaced four times as much as our refills. Vandal Proof’s soap dispenser has a variety of refills to suit your facility’s needs, with each dispensing 2500 activations per cartridge. Cut down on maintenance time and cleaning. We have refills that can serve as hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap, and all-in-one body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and shaving cream.
Paper towel dispensers are a key part of the bathroom. They allow your patients to dry their hands and gives them a barrier between their hands and any door handle as they are exiting. We recommend having two paper towel dispensers in your restrooms: one high capacity paper towel dispenser near the sink and our standard capacity unit next to the door.
Like our other products, our paper towel dispensers are indestructible and ligature resistant. They only dispense one towel at a time, unlike traditional models that allow people to grab as many as they want, leading to more partially used towels and paper strewn around the bathroom.
We have two models of paper towel dispenser: one holds 1000 sheets and the other holds 350. This gives you options so you can decide which model works best for your facility. If you are worried about fire, our unique design also snuffs out any flame before it can reach the paper inside. This saves you time, money, and stress.
Toilet paper is necessary in every bathroom. Many basic models allow vandals to break into the unit and take an entire roll or pull as much tissue out as they want. This leads to people using toilet paper to clog sinks and toilets or litter the floor. Even worse, it leaves the dispensers empty for the next person.
OPS Vandal Proof’s toilet tissue dispenser has the same safety features that our other products have, including a stainless-steel body and our paper towel holder’s ability to snuff out flame. They have an 800-sheet capacity, as well as two slots. They also only let one 2-ply tissue out at a time, so you do not have to worry about clogs or litter. The storage and safety features mean your patients will not have to worry about running out because of someone else vandalizing the bathroom.
No one likes dealing with bathroom maintenance. Do yourself a favor and save your time and money by purchasing OPS Vandal Proof dispensers for your facility’s bathrooms. Our heavy-duty, stainless-steel products will help you avoid contaminated refills, save money on wasted paper towels and toilet paper, and save time with larger storage capacities.
