Heat Outdoors Handy Dryers Shadow Industrial

Greener Hand Drying

Our Dryers are Energy Efficient

Hand dryers were invested more than 50 years ago. Old style hand dryers used hot air to dry hands. More recent inovations have shown that hands dry faster when high speed hand dryers are used.

These highly efficient hand dyer achieve fantastic drying time and a large energy saving by reducing drying time to less than 10 seconds for lower power usage.

Newer features have introduced heat element ON/OFF switches to further lower CO2 emmissions. This type of hand dryer are called ECO Friendly hand dryers.

There is no bigger challenge facing washrooms today than creating eco friendly facilities. Itís not just the significant cost savings, when a Handy Dryer is installed, there is less waste, less use of natural resources, and increased cleanliness - essential to any operating mission.

Crazy Statistics: say you are located in a 5-story office building; you will likely use about some 160,000 paper towels per month, which generate about 385 kilograms of waste paper. This would be equivalent to 8 trees per month, or 96 per year. If the waste paper were piled up, it would reach 14 meters per month, or 168 meters per year Ė thatís roughly the height of an 40-storey building!

Eco firendly hand dryer technology is developing fast and many ECO models now feature on/off switches for the heating element. The heating element often uses more than 50% of the energy but has a relatively small impact on the overall drying time. On more advanced models speed control features allow the dryer motor to run slower thus saving energy. An added benefit of this feature is that it reduces the noise level of the dryer.

Low-energy hand dryers are built to last a long time. They create no waste and have very low emissions compared with laundering roller towels, or paper towels. Whilst reclycable paper towels sound eco friendly the manufacturing, transportation, storage and disposal costs are significant. One of our automatic hand dryers is estimated to create 95% fewer carbon emissions than paper towels, making it an eco-friendly choice.
