Public parks and recreation areas are meant to be a space where anyone can come together as a community and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Whether it is for a Little League game, soccer match, or spending some time with loved ones, parks should be well maintained and clean. It takes a lot of work to keep these areas, but in the end, everyone benefits!
Public restrooms pose one of the greatest challenges in public area maintenance. Because these are often open to anyone and everyone, and most parks do not have personal onsite security, vandalism occurs at higher rates than in other public spaces. Most recreation area managers struggle with managing and preventing forms of vandalism like the destruction of public restrooms by the likes of troublemakers and homeless populations.
The maintenance cost to repair vandalized facilities can add up over time. Those broken fixtures might seem like a minor nuisance, in the long run, these minor expenditures can ruin a park’s maintenance budget. Traditional soap dispensers found in recreation areas are easy to break, and troublemakers can also easily rip them off walls. Bulk dispensers of any kind can also be a breeding ground for bacteria or used to clean heroin needles by transients. Since the dispensers never break, your maintenance staff will be freed up to do more productive jobs than repeatedly changing out broken dispensers.
OPS Vandal Proof offers tamper-proof paper towel dispensers, soap dispensers, and toilet paper dispensers. Each product is indestructible and ligature resistant and can be securely locked and mounted to prevent any vandalism. The OPS mounting system prevents anyone from tearing the dispensers off the wall and makes them ligature resistant. For added convenience, all OPS dispensers use the same key as others, making it easier to manage access.
Made From 12 to 16 gauge stainless steel!
There is no need to worry about soap cartridge contamination either. The contents are securely locked behind heavy-duty stainless steel that withstands any attempt at damage or vandalism.

Is Your Dispenser Secure From Vandalism
When you buy one of our soap dispensers, you can choose between a variety of soap or hand sanitizer refills. Each product dispenses 2500 activations per cartridge compared to competitors with soap refills of the same size. Theirs only dispense 600 times on average and lead to waste every time the dispenser is activated.
NSF E-2 Rated
NSF E-3 Rated

On average, this means any janitorial staff can change the cartridge less frequently, up to 4 times as less frequently as with other products on the market. It also means less wasted soap or hand sanitizer that ends up on the floor and less cleaning time, too!
Part of maintaining a clean park bathroom environment means adding paper towel dispensers so guests can dry their hands and avoid touching anything unsanitary like door handles. We suggest having two: one near the sink so people can dry their hands and another near the door, so they can avoid touching the door handle with their bare hands when leaving.
Like our soap dispensers, Vandal Proof paper towel dispensers are indestructible, securely mounted, locked, and ligature resistant. Each model dispenses only one towel at a time, unlike other models on the market which allow a person to grab a dozen or more paper towels with one dispensing. This feature not only saves on paper towels, but reduces the amount of maintenance needed to keep the dispenser fully stocked for park guests.
We offer two models, one which holds 1000 sheets of towels and another that holds 350 individual sheets, so you can find a model best suited to your park’s needs. Our paper towel refills are also uniquely sized to fit the size of an average adult’s hand. This leads to fewer partially used towels in trash receptacles, which can increase the cost and time of maintenance.
Worried about fire? Our unique design snuffs out any fire before it can burn the paper inside the dispenser. This saves money on refills and protects the dispenser from any potential damage or attempts at breaking in.
Our toilet paper dispenser comes with the same stainless steel body that our other products feature, including the OPS mounting system. Park managers can use these in their public restrooms to prevent waste and maintenance associated with cleaning or refilling the dispenser. Like our paper towel holder, it also features flame resistant technology that prevents fire from entering the dispenser.
Replacing soap dispensers take an average minimum of 1 hour per restroom and may be more depending on travel time to pick up new dispensers and travel time to and from the Restroom. This can make the cost of replacing a dispenser run into the hundreds of dollars. Our Vandal Proof dispensers typically pay form themselves in only a few months and save you hundreds more in the first year of use alone.
Each product can only dispense one 2-ply tissue sheet at a time, so that potential vandals do not have the opportunity to rip out an entire roll and use it to throw on the floor or flood the toilet. The model features an 800 tissue sheet capacity with two slots to reduce the chances of an empty dispenser.
Our refill packs are safe for septic systems and do not have a cardboard core, which gives your staff one less thing to worry about and makes them better for more isolated public park restrooms. Avoid clogged toilets and save on refilling your toilet paper dispensers with our products.
