The Bonzer Dispenser Range

Elevator Cup Dispenser

The Bonzer Elevator Cup Dispenser range makes the most of any counter, providing a low profile, space - saving and easily fitted solution which keeps your cups hygienically encased whilst still allowing easy access for quick service. The incorporated spring allows these dispensers to be mounted vertically into the top of a counter or horizontally into the side.

Gravity Cup Dispenser

The original cup dispenser from Bonzer should be vertically mounted with the cups dispensed from the bottom. Unlike the elevator, there is no spring. Instead it relies on gravity to feed the next cups. A simple, fail-safe design which is usually mounted on display above the counter.

Stainless Steel or Plastic Tube

Both the Bonzer Cup and Lid Dispensers are both available with a stainless steel or a plastic tube but what's the difference?
Stainless Steel

The stainless steel version offers a more hygienic solution for cup storage. It also ensures a longer life for the dispenser. The final benefit is the improved aesthetics if the dispenser is seen. 

Simply a more cheaper option for the tube assembly. Ideal for mounting in a unit both horizontally and vertically.  Both versions come with stainless steel mounting plate and surround. 

Choosing Tube Length?

The Bonzer Elevator Cup and Lid Dispensers come in 2 sizes as standard. 450mm and 600mm. We recommend using the 450mm when mounted horizontally in a unit such as a vending machine. Often 600mm length will not fit the width of a counter.

The 600mm option is ideal for mounting vertically in the top of countertops. The extra length allows more cups or lids to be stored within the counter.

Cup Dispenser Capacities

Cup capacities that fit into the Bonzer dispensers vary greatly between cup styles and sizes. The size of the cup affects the stack height but doesn't necessarily affect how many cups fit into the dispenser. The greater the stack height the fewer cups will fit into the unit. The style of cup, single or double walled will also have a big effect on stack height. 

The table gives an average stack height for both single and double walled cups and how many fit into each length cup dispenser. The image shows how to measure the stack height.
