Electric hand dryers are growing in popularity throughout all industries because of their simple , convenience and economic advantages. Installing an electric hand drying unit in your establishment can cut hand drying expenses up to 95%.

No longer will you need to buy paper towels. Hand dryers require much less maintenance compared to paper towels, which must be constantly refilled. An additional expense is the removal of paper waste, which requires your time and effort.

Automatic Hand Dryers

The inception of the automatic hand dryer has completely changed the washroom accessories market. Unlike previous hand dryers that required the push of a button, automatic hand dryers no longer need the user to touch the dryer to activate it. This has led to a dramatic reduction in the spread of germs and bacteria in public washrooms and bathrooms.

Automatic hand dryers are activated by an infrared sensor inside the unit. The infrared sensor has what is called a sensing zone once the users hand crosses that zone the hand drying cycle is then activated. Most if not automatic hand dryers have a predetermined hand drying cycle that last a specific amount of seconds. Some units allow the owner to set the allotted time that the drying cycle will last.

Push Button Hand Dryers

Push button hand dryers have been considered the standard since their creation. The simplistic design and durability of this type of hand dryer combined with affordability are some other reasons they have remained so popular for so many decades.

As mentioned before the sure economical value of not having to buy and replace paper towel rolls has led to many establishments deciding to use hand dryers as an alternative. Currently pushbutton hand dryers are more affordable than automatic hand dryers which leads many businesses still stick with this tried and true hand drying method.

Recessed, Semi-Recessed and Surface Mounted Hand Dryers

No matter what type of make or model hand dryer that you choose, they all fall under the categories of recessed, semi-recessed or surface mounted. There are advantages and disadvantages to all mounting types.

Surface mounted hand dryers are basically what the name implies, they are mounted on to a surface. These types of hand dryers are ideal in situations where the walls of the building are not deep enough or they are not made of the right materials to house the unit. The disadvantage of this type is that it protrudes out further than other types taking up more space in your washroom or restroom. Depending on the size, surface mounted units often do not meet ADA requirements

Semi-recessed hand dryers are units that partially protrude from the wall. These types of units are ideal for situations where you have a wall that has some depth but not enough to house the complete hand drying unit. Depending on your region, the hand dryer in the depth of the wall these types of dryers can sometimes meet ADA requirements.

Recessed hand dryers are hand dryers that are designed to fit almost completely into the depth of a wall. In ideal world all hand dryers would be completely recessed, they're considered the preferred choice when available. The only part of the hand dryer that you see is the face of the unit which is more aesthetically appealing and considered much easier to access and maneuver. Most if not all fully recessed hand dryers meet ADA requirements and are ideal for newly constructed buildings and restaurants.

Economical Hand Dryers

Although all hand dryers or more economically efficient than paper towel dispensers, not all hand dryers are created equally.
Economically efficient hand dryers can be great for both the environment and your checkbook. Also known as high efficiency hand dryers, these units often reduce hand drying costs by up to 95% compared to paper towel dispensers. These advantages alone make energy efficient hand dryers the obvious choice for many businesses and individuals.

With drying times of only a few seconds, the next generation green hand dryers are very often three times faster than your standard conventional hand dryers, and consistently use a lot less electricity.

By choosing eco-friendly hand dryer you can also improve your eligibility for LEED credits, while at the same time achieving huge cost savings and greatly reducing energy consumption. Energy efficient hand dryers operate with superior performance and much lower maintenance cost. They consume less resource usage than traditional hand drying solutions, which make them an excellent choice for any environment that needs a hand dryer.

High-Performance Hand Dryers

High performance hand dryers are rapidly becoming a popular choice in many public restrooms. They are also commonly referred to as high-speed hand dryers. High-performance hand dryers offer many great advantages which make them an excellent choice for almost any situation. The first obvious advantage to the performance hand dryer is that they dry hands fast. Many of today's most popular high-speed hand dryers can get hands completely dry and just a matter of 10 to 15 seconds.

Another extremely popular advantage of drying your hands with high-speed is the experience. Research shows that users thoroughly enjoy the thrill and the sensation that they get from the high-speed air rapidly drying and warming their hands.

The third advantage to the high-speed hand dryer and possibly the most important is that they are an excellent economical choice. All hand dryers are great for the environment and your checkbook compared to the use of paper towels, but performance hand dryers are much better. Not only are high-speed dryers used for a shorter period of time, but very often, they have a much lower wattage rate. Hand dryers that use less power save both the owner money and help the environment.
