Electric hand dryers are an essential amenity to include in new restroom design. They should also be included in any restroom remodel, considering the many advantages the offer over paper towels. They are far more environmentally friendly in that they eliminate paper waste.
Hands free models are much more sanitary as well because they offer end users a sterile means of drying their hands without having to touch a surface. Automatic units, wall mounted units, and stainless steel units rank among the most popular lines we carry. Almost every type of building uses them now.
The most popular of all of these are the newer lines of completely automatic, surface mounted dryers. These are the most sanitary and efficient models we carry. They do not require activation with the push of a button, so they are completely sterile in operation. This is important, because even a push button, in previous generations of dryer technology, was known to spread germs from time to time.
Surface-mounted, automatic electric hand dryers are ADA compliant. Restrooms in public areas, schools, and malls prefer them because they are easy for disabled persons to identify and access. Hands free operation allows the end user to simply place his or her hands beneath the unit in order to activate the air stream. After the unit has run a short while, it turns off.
There are a number of adjustable speed settings that individuals can also choose from. This allows children, older adults, and people with sensitive skin to select a setting that is most comfortable to their hands. In buildings like restaurants, libraries, and doctor’s offices where people of all ages use the restroom, this is a very important amenity for architects to include in building plans.
Electric hand dryers are also eco-friendly thanks to their complete elimination of the need for any paper products whatsoever. This reduces the need for raw timber, and it also reduces the amount of waste that will have to be later disposed of in landfills.
Cleaning crews will also spend much less time cleaning up a restroom that has devices no one ever touches. This also helps reduce an organization’s expenditures on man hours.
Because automatic electric hand dryers turn on only when activated by hand proximity, they only operate when needed. The newest lines are now so efficient that they can dry hands three times faster than preceding lines and use only 20 percent as much energy.
The new designs are also much quieter than previous generations. Even at their highest speed, the sound is comfortable, not overwhelming.
Some models are also portable. They are fitted with a UL plug with the option to hardwire to any restroom wall.
Hand dryer aesthetics include a wide range of cover options so architects can match interior décor. These options include porcelain, which works very well with more formal restroom design. Stainless steel with a satin finish is popular in many contemporary style interiors. Steel with white epoxy is used in many places where a nice, but fundamentally utilitarian bathroom design is preferred.
