In an environment such as a café where food is being prepared, it is vitally important to ensure that hygiene standards are met to protect the health of customers. Having accessible and efficient hand dryers available for staff and customers to use encourages better hygiene and improves health and safety.

Minimising noise

Creating a welcoming environment in a café is important for customers. Older hand dryers can be noisy and distracting, particularly in smaller venues where the bathroom facilities are located close to dining areas, so choosing a hand dryer that is quieter can be helpful in making customers more comfortable.

Traditional warm air hand dryers make a great deal of noise due to their design which uses a wide nozzle for warm air and creates a great deal of disturbance.
Modern jet hand dryers such as the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 rely on a fast-moving curtain of air. This, coupled with sound insulation built into the design means that there is less air turbulence and as a result, less noise.

A conventional hand dryer emits up to 83dB of sound – the equivalent of heavy traffic nearby, whereas the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 generates just 57dB – the equivalent of a normal conversation. This means less disturbance in the surrounding areas

No touch design for better hygiene

In food preparation areas, it is important to avoid cross contamination, so choosing a no-touch or automatic hand dryer is good practice. Modern automatic hand dryers have a sensor in the drying area that detects when a hand is present. This means that there is no opportunity to spread germs from a button.

A second advantage of a no-touch design is that the hand dryer only runs for as long as necessary. A jet hand dryer such as the Mitsubishi Electric Wave i01 will
dry the user’s hands in as little as 10 seconds compared to more than 30 seconds for a conventional design. This means that much less energy is used which helps to reduce costs.

Control energy costs

High electricity bills are damaging to businesses, and as a result, any appliance that can help reduce energy use is a good idea.
The ultra efficient design of the Mitsubishi Electric Wave hand dryer range means that they are much cheaper to run than conventional models. For every 100 daily uses, the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 costs just £10 annually for every 100 daily uses compared to £33 for an equivalent evaporative hand dryer and is responsible for less than a third of the CO2 emissions.
