Loud Trash Can Dolly Wheels No More 

I know we have all been there.

We are at a tranquil location, concentrating on getting work done, reading important information or in a very important meeting.

Along comes a custodian or a janitor with one of those trash can dollies. It destroys all peace and quiet that you needed for what you were working on, concentrating on or in deep conversations we are having with coworkers or prospective clients.

Library’s, hospitals, office complexes (especially at night), museums, art-galleries and any place that is in a public location that needs a quiet environment will benefit from Quiet Casters.

Merriam-Webster says Quiet means: Free from disturbing noise or uproar.

Breaking the silence when a trash can dolly goes by can be far more than annoying.

It can disrupt a train of thought, make us agitated, angry, restless, and unsettled.

The clackity clack of the loud wheels going by can be very disruptive to everyone.

Even in a noisy environment, the trash can dolly wheels stand out.

There is an easy solution to fix this noisy problem that everyone concerned will thank you for.

Replace the wheels on the trash can dolly with Quiet Casters – they are easy to change and are very reasonably priced.

JaniWrap Quiet Casters – the No Squeal Wheels – are sold in sets of five, perfect for one trash can dolly.

Quiet Casters are maintenance-free casters made of glass-filled nylon which gives extra durability and strength to the caster. 

Next Generation Quiet Casters are resistant to most chemicals.

Precision bearings are insert-molded into the sealed raceway, providing a worry-free, smooth, and quiet operation. 

Wheels include full-thread guards to reduce debris entanglement. 

No more dirt and hair in the wheels.

Recessed axles are covered with plastic caps.

We also call these wheels Ninja Casters: “The wheel that does not squeal”.


We have two short videos for you to watch about Quiet Casters and No Sequel Wheels.

1.) The first is the sound difference between the noisy, vibrating wheels that comes with the traditional trash can dollies and our Quiet Casters – the No Squeal Wheels.

Quiet Casters VS Traditional Wheels

2.) The second is how to replace the wheels quickly and efficiently.

How to Install Quiet Casters

A short video on how simple it is to replace the wheels and install Quiet Casters.

Your custodian or janitor will thank you along with the many people that have had to endure the loud noise of the trash dollies in your location.

Make it quiet – everyone will thank you!

JaniWrap is committed to making public washroom presentable even when there is an issue with one of the urinals or toilets. Just because one of these units go down does not mean the whole facility needs to look shabby or bad. Our temporary covers bring the whole facility back to “looking good” until the needed repairs can be accomplished.

We have written a number of articles on how to keep making public washroom presentable here at JaniWrap Blog

Invention Temporary Out-of-Order Toilet and Urinal Covers


The early days of JaniWrap Out of Order Urinal and Toilet Covers were more research and development than order fulfillment and shipping. 

The evolution from the original flat pad of covers to perforated covers on a roll was a lengthy process with a tremendous amount of sourcing and trial and error. 

The excellent result of both applications was the same – it was the ease of use and method of application that was the challenge in the beginning.

If you were a first-generation supporter of JaniWrap, you remember the applicator tool used to transition the cover from the flat pad of covers to the toilet or urinal fixture was a cumbersome process compared to the quick method of applying JaniWrap today. 

We appreciated the support of our early customers as they were willing to go the extra mile to achieve the results that today come considerably easier.

Our first adopters were visionaries like us and knew the end supported the means. 

JaniWrap has always been a word of mouth organization with holistic growth – no public relations or marketing campaigns (beyond a little social media) to drive business. 

So, new customers in those days were met with joy and high-fives and meant we could continue and press on!

Today the celebration of each sale is still ongoing as we strive to make restrooms aesthetically pleasing, not just in North America but worldwide.  

The first Canadian shipment was an eyeopener of customs forms, duties, and taxes, but now we’re in many countries, including our important UK distributor.

JaniWrap is a family business focused on meeting the needs and expectations of every customer. 

We began as a people business, and we’ll always be a people business as we meet our mission goals of making the world just a little more welcoming – one restroom at a time.

Before JaniWrap began, we always knew who our customers would be, and knew we would treasure the small operator every bit as much as big corporate folks. 

Treating everyone the same is one reason we do not plaster our website with highly recognizable logos from our more famous clientele at the possible slight of Elmer’s Hardware Store in mid-town USA.

JaniWrap Covers protect the visual scenery in restrooms while effectively removing a fixture from service – you certainly don’t have to be a big corporation to appreciate the value JaniWrap brings to a property.

JaniWrap is an important tool utilized by savvy facility professionals across all spectrums.

1.) Chain restaurants to local BBQ joints.

2.) Major league arenas to city sports complexes,

3.) Small-town landing strips to international airports.

4.) Strip malls to shopping mecca’s.

5.) Elementary schools to Ivy League institutions.

6.) Auto manufacturers to wagon producers.

7.) Local government offices to elegant embassies.

8.) Miniature golf to lush resorts.

9.) Medical offices to hospitals.

10.) Art houses to museums.

11.) Science laboratories to space engineering.

Above all, especially during this time of uncertainty and challenge, let’s remember the Golden Rule and look beyond ourselves and extend grace and kindness to those around us. 

As has been said, “We may all live on the same planet, but we each live in totally different worlds” – make your world a better place today.

JaniWrap has deep roots in facilities management and as such we have a good understanding of what is involved in maintaining a clean and safe interior environment – including restrooms. 

The janitorial market today is rife with tools and programs to ensure visiting a restroom is a pleasant experience and that there will always be plenty of tissue, soap and hand towels available for visitors and staff. 

From sophisticated WIFI monitoring systems to elaborate training and old school cleaning schedules they all have one goal in mind, and that is to keep people safe and happy.

One of the first impressions people get when they enter a restroom that utilizes JaniWrap Toilet/Urinal Covers is that someone cares about their well-being. 

Their visual senses are not assaulted with conspicuous garbage bags, caution tape, or other similar means of notifying them that a fixture is out of service. 

Gaining people’s trust is arguably one of the most important facets of maintaining public restrooms, and first impressions go a long way in this regard.

However crucial the visual impact a restroom has on a visitor though, the maintenance routine to the fixtures, walls, surfaces and touch-points is equally important as each facet of care impacts the others e.g., surfaces must be cleaned prior to being disinfected to reap the full benefits of the disinfecting chemical.

There are many cleaning solutions and fast acting disinfectants available today with many products EPA rated to kill all manner of viruses including COVID 19, but they are not the focus here. 

Two lesser known and sometimes overlooked options in combating germs and viruses are microbial paint and barrier coatings.

Public Restrooms Virus Free

JaniWrap Tip #1:  Sherwin Williams Paint Shield Microbicidal Paint. 

This paint is the first EPA registered paint that kills greater than 99.9% of bacteria (which causes odor), including Staph, MRSA, E. Coli, VRE and other pathogens. 

The killing of these harmful bacteria on painted surfaces offers a new way to neutralize disease-causing bacteria on high-traffic/high-touch point surfaces.

This paint is most useful in areas of that support large groups of persons. 

It’s also valuable when people know the extent the owner goes to ensure a safe environment for visitors and occupants of the building.


JaniWrap Tip #2:  PreventX

PreventX is an invisible antimicrobial finish that inhibits the growth of a wide range of bacterial and viral contaminants. 

It provides a long-lasting protective surface not affected by regular daily cleaning and depending on the surface treated lasts 30 days. 


Imagine the touch-points…

…in a restroom or building that can be protected from cross-contamination and transfer for long periods of time and the man hours of cost savings not having to continuously wipe down surfaces only to have them ready to be infected all over again.

The level of care and concern for personal safety in public environments during this health crisis continues to be truly extraordinary and JaniWrap is privileged to be part of this tremendous campaign and doing our part in providing effective and  aesthetically pleasing products to enhance restrooms worldwide.

COVID-19 and Public Restrooms   


Social distancing affects everyone in most buildings and locations including the public restroom.  In an effort to maintain six-foot physical distancing in restrooms, the creativity of man, or lack thereof, are on public display as these photos authenticate.  

For nearly a decade, JaniWrap Toilet Covers has set the standard in restroom aesthetics when a malfunctioning toilet, urinal or sink is temporarily removed from service.

JaniWrap was the first and only beautiful and effective method of taking a fixture offline until repair could be made and continues to be the preferred choice of schools, medical facilities, shopping malls, arena’s, airports and Fortune 500 companies worldwide. 

With the advent of the global COVID 19 pandemic, JaniWrap is currently being used to remove perfectly good toilet fixtures form service in response to private and governmental physical distancing mandates – who would have thought?

nterestingly, England was the foreteller of things to come in the U.S. when JaniWrap’s United Kingdom distributor CS4UK reported a dramatic increase of orders for JaniWrap Cover Kits in response to their own social distancing requirements. 

It was at this time that new Not In Service Due To Social Distancing labels were created to notify and encourage physical separation in a visually pleasing and effective manner.

These new social distancing labels were soon followed with an oversized version of the same label made of vinyl and designed to release clean and easily from all substrates. 

These labels are for use without the JaniWrap Cover and are used on sinks, drinking fountains, hand dryers, and anywhere the notification label is helpful.  

In addition, JaniWrap’s aluminum Not In Service signs continue to be used in Class A buildings and similar sites benefitting from their distinctive look when hanging from toilet stall doors. 

They come with their own storage case to protect them when not in use and are an effective tool for any facilities department to have at their disposal.

JaniWrap is proud to be an integral part of a positive first impression a restroom visitor has in your building, establishment or property – rest assured, we are committed to serving you well into the future.

It’s with pleasure that JaniWrap offers a new vinyl sticker that notifies visitors that a restroom fixture has been removed from service to aid in physical distancing in accordance with CDC recommendations.

Not all stickers are created equal.  Some are especially annoying and require a blowtorch, soap and razor knife to remove – like discount store price tags! These oversized yet discerning labels are made to be easily removed without leaving any adhesive behind – they can even be reused.  

JaniWrap Out of Order Fixture Covers are best in class – in fact, we invented the class. 

However, there are circumstances where a cover may be overkill and/or detract from the surrounding aesthetics (think sinks and drinking fountains) and a Not In Service Due To Social Distancing sticker may be the preferred method of removing a wash basin or water filling station from service.

These versatile decals are also effective on toilet stall doors, vending machines, and workstations just to name a few. 

They are large but not too large at 2.6 x 6 inches and the pewter gray color with white lettering displays beautifully in most environments.
