Enhancing washrooms with a commercial hand dryer

4th June 2024·Hints & Tips

Looking for a hand-drying solution that combines energy-efficiency with excellent hygiene standards? Look no further than a commercial hand dryer.

Commercial hand dryer

It’s important for businesses to make smart decisions when it comes to every aspect of their operations, even in smaller details such as the choice of hand drying methods in your washrooms. Luckily, here at NWR Hygiene Group, we’re experts in helping business owners to make smart choices for their WC’s, and in today’s blog post we’re going to take a look at the benefits of choosing a commercial hand dryer, and consider some of the models on offer.

An environmentally friendly choice

Unlike paper towels, which contribute to environmental issues such as deforestation and landfill waste, hand dryers offer a comparably sustainable solution for washrooms. By eliminating the need for paper towels, dryers thus reduce the demand for paper products, ultimately conserving trees and reducing the carbon emissions associated with both their production and transportation.

Facilitating excellent hygiene standards

Unlike conventional paper towels, which can harbour troublesome bacteria and contribute to cross-contamination when incorrectly disposed of, hand dryers provide a hygienic, touch-free drying experience. On top of this, a number of modern commercial hand dryers are equipped with germ-busting advanced features such as HEPA filters, which are designed to effectively capture airborne bacteria and particles.

Offering high-speed efficiency

With rapid drying times ranging from as little as 7 to 12 seconds, hand dryers enable users to dry their hands quickly and efficiently, minimising wait times and enhancing the overall washroom experience. The high-speed performance of a commercial hand dryer is made possible through innovative technology, including supercharged motors and optimised airflow design.

Choosing a commercial hand dryer that fits your needs

Here at NWR Hygiene Group, we have a carefully curated range of quality hand dryers on offer. If you’re looking for cutting-edge technology that will stand the test of time, you can’t go wrong with one of these fantastic models.

The Air Lite Max 

For an affordable hand dryer that doesn’t compromise on efficiency, the Air Lite Max is a great choice.

Great for: Businesses who need a reliable, efficient dryer that is budget-friendly.

What’s on offer: This high-speed automatic dryer is equipped with an array of impressive features, including an intelligent heater system that only activates when it is required. What’s more, the Air Lite Max boasts a noise level well below 75dB, ensuring the washroom retains a semblance of peace and quiet!

With 8-10 seconds drying time, notably low energy use, nifty automatic operation, and internal UV protection, this commercial hand dryer is an unbeatable choice, and is available in stainless satin, polished and ceramic white.

The Air Lite Super Max 

The Air Lite Super Max offers all the benefits of the standard Air Lite model, along with a number of premium features. This model is also available in several different colours.

Great for: Businesses looking for a premium dryer that improves hygiene standards.

What’s on offer: With its unique system, combining a built-in UV light with a double HEPA filter, this commercial hand dryer is equipped to eradicate up to 99.9% of bacteria during the drying process. This touch-free dryer also boasts a Stepless Hidden Switch that allows you to easily adjust the airspeed. Pair this with an intelligent LED display, low noise level, dual wave-shape outlets, 24,000 RPM brushless motor, a drying time of 7-10 m/s, and a lifespan of up to 10 years, and you’re looking at an incredibly efficient, premium-grade dryer.

The Dyson Airblade V™

Dyson has an unparalleled reputation for quality and efficiency, and the Dyson Airblade V certainly lives up to these high standards.

Great for: Businesses who value energy efficiency, and high standards of hygiene.

What’s on offer: Quiet, hygienic, fast, and compact, this fantastic hand dryer takes just 12 seconds to thoroughly dry hands. The Dyson Airblade V™ hand dryer also has great green credentials, producing up to 79% less CO2 than many standard hand dryers and up to 76% less than paper towels. Of course, less energy means less running costs, so it’s a win-win for the environment, and for your budget. Plus, with a state-of-the-art HEPA Filter, this model also removes over 99.9% of washroom bacteria from the air used to dry hands.

The Dyson Airblade 9KJ 

Like the Airblade V, the Dyson Airblade 9KJ brings the exceptional quality and efficiency that we’ve all come to expect as standard from Dyson products.

Great for: Businesses looking for a premium hand dryer with customisable, energy-efficient features.

What’s on offer: This state-of-the-art model enables you to choose between ‘Max’ and ‘Eco’ mode settings, so you can control the energy use and sound level of the unit. This is fantastic if you are installing your unit in a washroom with lower footfall where hand-drying times are not an issue. In this instance, selecting the ‘Eco’ mode would save energy costs, whilst minimising your carbon footprint. In fact, whilst programmed to ‘Eco’ mode, this model costs on average just £19 each year to run. Pair these energy-efficient features with a fleece-lined glass fibre HEPA filter that eradicates 99.95% of bacteria, and you’ve got a dryer that ticks every box.
