What Are The Pros and Cons of Automatic Hand Dryers?

Pros of Automatic Hand Dryers

Automatic hand dryers offer several advantages and disadvantages that can influence their use in various settings.

1. Cost Savings: Automatic hand dryers can help save money by eliminating the need to purchase paper towels for restrooms. They also require less maintenance than paper towel dispensers, which can lead to further cost savings.

2. Environmentally Friendly: Hand dryers are more environmentally friendly than paper towels. They eliminate waste and do not require trees to be cut down for their production. Additionally, hand dryers do not produce CO2 emissions while in use, unlike the production, transportation, and disposal of paper towels. We also sell a range of eco-friendly hand dryers that are designed with energy efficiency in mind.

3. Hygiene: Automatic hand dryers are considered more hygienic than paper towels. They are touch-free and activated by motion sensors, reducing the risk of contamination from touching surfaces. They also eliminate the problem of used paper towels sitting in bins, which can collect germs and bacteria.

4. Efficiency: High-speed hand dryers can dry hands quickly, reducing waiting times in restrooms. This can be particularly beneficial in high-traffic areas.


Cons of Automatic Hand Dryers

1. Potential for Germ Spread: Some small studies suggest that hand dryers may spread bacteria by blowing pathogens back onto hands after washing. They could potentially transfer germs to surfaces and clothing, which could increase the risk of disease cross contamination.

2. Noise: Some hand dryers operate at a volume that could be harmful to children's ears, which is a concern in settings where children are present. If this a concern, see our range of quiet hand dryers.

3. Initial Cost: The upfront cost of purchasing and installing hand dryers can be higher than that of paper towel dispensers. However, the long-term savings can offset this initial investment.

The decision to use automatic hand dryers should be based on a variety of factors, including cost, environmental impact, hygiene considerations, and the specific needs of the facility. It's important to weigh the pros and cons to make an informed decision.
