Hand Hygiene during Football Season

Hut, Hut, Hike! Hand Hygiene during Football Season

The kickoff of the 2021 football season is here, and fans are now allowed back into stadiums across the country to cheer on their favorite teams. With large crowds gathering again, hand hygiene during football season is a concern that touchless, hygienic XLERATOR® Hand Dryers can help with. Big name sporting venues across the country, including Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, use XLERATOR Hand Dryers in their restrooms. Here are some reasons why our dryers are an integral part of the team.

Health and Safety

The final step when practicing proper hand hygiene is thoroughly drying your hands. That’s because wet hands are more likely to pick up bacteria. So even if you wash thoroughly, your hands are never fully clean until they are clean AND dry. In a high volume arena where thousands of fans are cheering on their favorite team, hand hygiene is important for the health and safety of everyone in the stands. XLERATOR and XLERATOReco® dryers with our optional HEPA Filtration System remove 99.97 percent of potentially present bacteria and viruses at 0.3 microns or larger from the air stream, keeping your freshly washed hands clean as they are dried. This can provide peace of mind that hands are clean when it comes time to chow down on some stadium snacks and can help cut down the transmission of any germs keeping the in-person game experience a safe one.

Clean and Green

Not only are our dryers hygienic, but they are also sustainable. Switching to XLERATOR Hand Dryers means 95 percent savings on waste and maintenance costs when compared to paper. For a large venue like a football stadium, this means savings of approximately $32,042 a year. Not only can our hand dryers help you save money by eliminating the need for paper towels, but they also use 80 percent less energy than conventional hand dryers. They are green building approved and help qualify for several LEED® credits.

Customizable and Adjustable

Show your team spirit with your colors, logo, mascot and more displayed on the cover of your XLERATOR Hand Dryers. Every dryer in our expanded and enhanced product line also comes with adjustable speed and sound, adjustable heat settings, multi-voltage options, and an externally visible service LED for streamlining maintenance.
