Types of electric hand dryers

Back when electric hand dryers were first invented (in 1948, by George Clemens), they were all pretty much the same. But that’s no longer the case.

Over the years, electric hand dryers have really advanced. There are now some really nifty features available that dry hands quickly, are kind to the environment, save you money, prolong your electric hand dryers’ lifespan – the list goes on.

Touchless electric hand dryers

Touchless (or motion sensored) electric hand dryers are the norm today. As the name suggests, you don’t need to touch anything to get these going – which means fewer germs transferred between bathroom visitors and better hygiene standards. These days, touchless technology is really a must-have feature.

All our electric hand dryers have touchless sensors to operate them. Browse above or click the links below.

High speed electric hand dryers

High speed electric hand dryers are a relatively new innovation. These types of hand dryers work in a slight different way to traditional hand dryers. As opposed to gently evaporating water from hands, they blast moisture away. High speed electric hand dryers typically dry hands in around 10 seconds, while traditional dryers take around 45 seconds.

High speed electric hand dryers can be more than 80% cheaper to run than traditional hand dryers. They’re a great deal better for the environment, too.
