Do sunlight, lights on/off, reflections or glare affect the performance of the electronic units?

No, these issues will not affect the performance of our electronic dispensers.

Do you have any suggestions or comments regarding paper?

We are experts in dispensers, and our dispensers will work with most universal paper. However, due to the wide range of paper grades and strengths available, we always suggest testing of any paper used in Alwin Dispensers.

Electronic units are very "forgiving" with regard to various paper grades. Really thin paper can be an issue. In instances where appropriate, our customers are welcome to send paper samples here to do testing if preferred.

With mechanical hands-free and lever-type units, this can be more of an issue - good basis-weight with low stretch should be used. High stretch can be tough to cut and result in "chaining". Wet strength is also an important issue for mechanical hands-free dispensers.
