Hand dryers are a significant improvement over paper towels utilising a germ free warm air system which has proven to be extremely efficient and hygienic drying medium which eliminates the risk of cross infection from user to user.
Redring hand dryers are built to very high specifications and are actively sourced by the NHS. Both the Health and Safety Executive and the Ministry of Defence have approved these units for use in commercial and office environments.
The capital cost of installing a hand dryer is soon recovered in savings on paper towels or roller units. With an average usage of 120 drying cycles a day, the financial outlay will be recovered in less than 18 months.
Current figures indicate that hand dryers cost around 1p per dry compared to paper towels which cost up to 3p per day and linen towels cost a staggering 6p per dry.
