Why choose a fast drying hand dryer?

Choosing a fast drying hand dryer has several benefits, including:

1. Time-saving: Fast drying hand dryers can fully dry hands in under 10 seconds, which makes it twice as easy for washroom users to get in and get out. A faster dry time results in hands being dried more quickly, reducing the amount of energy consumed per use.

2. Energy efficiency: Jet hand dryers not only dry hands quicker, but that speed also contributes to the dryers' energy efficiency. More powerful motors mean that high-speed hand dryers consume 88% less energy than their predecessors. Using fewer watts to dry users’ hands makes them more environmentally friendly and less costly, meaning savings for you and the environment. If you are looking for specific eco-friendly hand dryers, here at Direct365, we stock a wide variety of energy effiecient hand dryers.

3. Hygiene: A faster dry time encourages greater compliance with proper hand drying and will, therefore, reduce the risk of bacteria transfer. Wet hands can transfer up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands. If you're looking for HEPA filter hand dryers, we stock a wide-range of them at the best prices and quick delivery times.

4. Cost-effective: Commercial fast drying hand dryers boast the best of both worlds, drying hands quickly and with less power than past hand dryers. They eliminate the paper towel mess and the time required to constantly refill the paper towel holders.

5. Ideal for high traffic areas: Jet hand dryers are ideal for washrooms with even the most foot traffic. Long lines won’t accumulate among people waiting to use the hand dryer because average drying times are shortened down to only a couple of seconds.

Choosing a fast drying hand dryer can save time, energy, and money, while also promoting hygiene and being ideal for high traffic areas.


The Pros & Cons of a Fast Drying Hand Dryer

Hand drying is an essential part of maintaining hygiene in public restrooms. The two most common methods of hand drying are paper towels and hand dryers. In this article, we will discuss the pros and cons of fast-drying hand dryers.

Pros of fast-drying hand dryers:

Lower impact on the environment: Hand dryers eliminate the need for paper towels, making them an environmentally friendly option that reduces waste and the production cost of raw materials. With fewer paper towels ending up in landfills and the packaging that paper towels come in, the use of hand dryers yields a more positive impact on the environment.

Cost savings: Although the initial investment of installing commercial fast drying hand dryers can be costly, the cost savings that come with not having to replenish paper towel inventory can be significant. After installation, the cost to run and maintain hand dryers is much cheaper than any alternatives. Furthermore, cleaning staff won’t have to worry about switching out rubbish bags or cleaning paper towels from the floor, which leads to more cost savings.

Lower carbon footprint: Businesses that choose commercial fast drying hand dryers have a much lower carbon footprint overall. The cost of producing paper towels includes packaging and transportation, which increases carbon dioxide emissions per use. With hand dryers, there is no need to transport or dispose of paper towels, which reduces the carbon footprint.

Faster drying time: Fast drying hand dryers can dry hands in as little as 10 to 12 seconds. This encourages greater compliance with proper hand drying and will, therefore, reduce the risk of bacteria transfer. Wet hands can transfer up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands, according to a University of Bradford study.

Tidier washroom: Hand dryers can contribute to a tidier restroom. Used paper towel bins can become overfilled and unsightly and can ruin the appearance of an otherwise clean washroom. Hand dryers eliminate the need for paper towels, which can reduce the amount of litter in the washroom.

Cons of fast-drying hand dryers:

Hygiene concerns: Fast drying hand dryers have filters that filter the air sucked through the machine and the air blown onto hands. However, the air in restrooms can contain bacteria and viruses, which can be blown onto hands during the drying process. This can be a concern for people with weakened immune systems. If this is a concern, take a look at our range of HEPA filter hand dryers.

Noise: Some hand dryers can be loud, which can be a nuisance for people using the restroom or for people in adjacent rooms. If you specifically need a quiet hand dryer, check out the PHS Airstream Whisper range.

User preference: Some surveys have shown that some people prefer paper towels over hand dryers. This can be a concern for businesses that want to provide the best customer experience.

Fast-drying hand dryers have several advantages, including lower environmental impact, cost savings, and faster drying times. However, some hygiene concerns and user preference can be a disadvantage. Ultimately, the choice between paper towels and hand dryers depends on the specific needs and preferences of the business or facility.
