The pioneering technology used in them ensures that they are the best in their class. However, they also have low running costs, costing less than 0.02p per use.
We have installed units in schools across the UK, such as Ringwood Junior School. We installed one of our Kangarillo hand dryers, since then it has encouraged all of the children to wash their hands thoroughly. They have said that it doesn’t take as long to wash their hands as they dry quickly.
When it comes to choosing a school hand dryer, there are several types available on the market. Here are some factors to consider:
Traditional hand dryers: These are the most common type of hand dryers found in older school facilities. They use electric heating elements to produce warm air that dries the hands. They are usually wall-mounted and cheap to buy but they have higher running costs as they use a lot of energy to heat the element. They also have slower drying times than modern hand dryers as they often take 30 seconds to dry the hands.
High-speed hand dryers: High-speed hand dryers are designed to dry hands quickly by blowing a very powerful stream of air at over 200mph. They are more energy-efficient than traditional dryers and can reduce drying time significantly. Some models are quite loud which can be an issue with younger pupils. However quieter models use adjustable airflow and heating options to reduce sound and save energy.
Jet air hand dryers: Jet air hand dryers are a type of high-speed dryers but use a concentrated and powerful jet of air to dry hands quickly. They typically have a nozzle or blade design that focuses the airflow onto the hands, effectively removing moisture.
Hybrid hand dryers: Most dryers are hybrid hand dryers which combine the benefits of both warm air and high-speed drying. They use a combination of warm air and a high-velocity airflow to dry hands efficiently. These dryers can be energy-efficient while providing a quick drying experience. They often have a facility to switch off the heating element to save money which can be especially useful in the warmer summer months.
Touchless hand dryers: Touchless hand dryers have become increasingly popular in schools due to their hygienic design. They use infrared sensors to detect the presence of hands and automatically start the drying process. Touchless operation helps reduce the spread of germs and bacteria.
Eco-friendly hand dryers: Eco-friendly hand dryers are designed to minimize energy consumption and promote sustainability for the school. They often feature energy-efficient motors, low-power heating elements, and adjustable settings to reduce energy usage.
When selecting a hand dryer for a school, factors to consider include drying efficiency, noise levels, energy consumption, durability, hygiene features, and maintenance requirements.
