C-fold paper towels come in bundles of layered sheets and insert into pull-down or surface-top dispensers in many settings, including public facilities, office buildings, retail establishments, hospitality venues, and industrial centers. They come in one or two plies, each with a textured structure that gives the user plenty of absorbency so they're both economical and ecological. Read More

Features of C-fold paper towels

Commercial paper towels with a C-fold shape fit pull-down towel dispensers or surface-top, bin-style dispensers. C-fold towels are sheets that fold upon themselves equally from both sides, so when opened they resemble a square C. Other towels are multi-fold sheets that have tri-folds resembling a Z when open. Both Z-fold and C-fold towels come in interlocking layers so when a user pulls a sheet from a dispenser, the next sheet pulls down automatically for the subsequent person, preventing any cross-contamination. Each type comes in either one- or two-ply sheets.

Some of the qualities of C-fold towels

Most manufacturers of paper towels in C-fold shapes put both functionality and care into their product. The vast majority of the towels are compatible with most dispensers that are available, and they have crisp, clean folds to prevent paper jams in the dispensers. The towels also combine absorbency with softness. Many have embossed, woven surfaces consisting of honeycomb cells or air pockets in each ply, providing dual-purpose moisture permeability and a supple surface.

C-fold hand towels address ecological concerns

One issue about hand towels versus hand blowers in public or large commercial settings is that the paper is discarded, raising concerns about forestry conservation and paper waste. However, numerous users prefer hand towels because they dry hands more quickly and efficiently. The vast majority of paper-towel manufacturers, many also providing bulk commercial toilet paper, use recycled content, sometimes up to 90 to 100 percent, and post-consumer content, up to 80 percent, to make their products. Many manufacturers are part of the Sustainable Forest Initiative®, fully participant in its supply-chain mandates for responsible forestry management. Also, a large proportion of products meet EPA, FDC®, Green Seal™, and EcoLogo® certification standards for environmental sustainability.

Hand towels in bulk

Like many cleaning supplies available in bulk, C-fold hand towels come in large-volume single packs in cases. Single packs can contain anywhere from 150 to 200 sheets, some up to 600 sheets, in cartons containing 10, 12, or 16 separate packs. That means that cartons contain between 2,000 and 3,000 individual hand towels, plenty of stock for several dispenser refills.
