Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has placed a great emphasis on the importance of sanitation and hand hygiene. And for good reason—properly washing and drying your hands helps to reduce the likelihood of passing on these dangerous germs to others or even getting sick yourself. Some commercial restrooms, however, might still rely on outdated and inefficient push-button operated hand dryers, which could harbor germs. That’s why in this new normal, it’s critical for restroom owners to think one step ahead and upgrade to contactless hygienic hand dryers that are more energy efficient. In this blog, we’re going to talk about our innovative touch-free hand dryers and why they are the right choice for your facility.
Hand Dryer Choices to Consider
Did you know that 80 percent of germs are transmitted by touch? With that in mind, a push-button hand dryer doesn’t sound so appealing when compared to our state-of-the-art, contactless hand dryers. Here are some of our best options for restrooms looking to upgrade to a no-touch, high-speed drying solution.
XLERATOR® Hand Dryer
Activated by an automatic, contactless sensor, our XLERATOR Hand Dryer dries hands in just eight seconds while using 80 percent less energy than a conventional hand dryer. With ADA-compliant options, the XLERATOR Hand Dryer also helps qualify for several LEED credits as it contributes to a reduced carbon footprint. In addition, an optional HEPA filtration system has been proven to remove 99.999% of viruses from the airstream, leading to a much cleaner restroom overall.
