Hand dryers might seem like the last place to look for modern technology. After all, they’re pretty utilitarian, and they’re not usually associated with advanced functionality. For all that, they have benefited from the relentless march of progress, and you’ll find that today’s dryers are much more advanced than they were just a few years ago. What are some of the key advances here?
One of the most interesting, and important, advances with hand dryer design is the fact that they have become much greener over time. Once, dryers were major sources of power consumption and added a lot to your facility’s draw from the power grid. In comparison, today’s models are power misers and barely draw any current, even in standby mode. In fact, you can find units that will help you achieve LEED certification if that’s your goal.
Another advance here is that today’s dryers are much faster than they once were. At one time, you would have to hold your hands under a dryer for between 30 seconds and a full minute. Even then your hands might not be completely dry. In comparison, today’s dryers can completely dry your hands in just 10 to 12 seconds. That’s an amazing change!
They’re Longer Lasting
While hand dryers still represent an investment, great strides have been made regarding durability and lifespan. They hold up better to constant use and wear and tear, and they’re even more resilient against vandals. This allows you to maximize your investment because you can count on your dryer to be around tomorrow, and the next day, and the next.
Styles and Designs
Finally, you’ll find that bathroom dryers are available in a very wide range of styles and designs, from low-profile models to those that need no maintenance to those with adjustable voltage, and more.
The Right Company Is Essential
Now that you’ve been introduced to some of the key advances, it’s important to note that you still need to work with the right manufacturer.
