Go hands-free and improve sanitation in your business with this San Jamar T8400TBK Smart Essence Classic paper towel dispenser.

Offering hands-free paper towel dispensing is one of the easiest steps you can take to improve sanitation in your business! Conventional paper towel dispensers are constantly being touched by many people as they dispense towels, providing an ideal place for pathogens to grow. With a hands-free model, you minimize the spread of germs and keep both your staff and your customers happy and healthy!

  • Hands-Free/Touchless


    This item is designed for hands-free use, which reduces the risk of cross-contamination and prevents germs from spreading.

Touch-Free Design

This paper towel dispenser features a touchless electronic design for maximum sanitation. Using sensors, the dispenser detects when you need a towel and dispenses one, so that you never have to touch the unit and potentially transfer harmful germs.

Fits 8" Towel Rolls

The interior of this unit is designed to accommodate an 8" wide roll of paper towels with a 1 1/2" core diameter. The roll itself can be up to 8" in diameter.

Locking Key

This dispenser has a specialized key lock system that allows you to access the inside to replace a towel roll or make adjustments, while preventing tampering.

Hard Plastic Shell

This paper towel dispenser features a hard plastic exterior to stand up to high use in even high-traffic locations. And as an added bonus, it won't take up much space, either - in fact it is smaller than many comparable dispensers.


You also have the ability to tailor paper towel dispensing for maximum efficiency and waste reduction! Use the programmable control panel to set the length of paper dispensed, the dispensing delay, and also the paper out sensor mode.
