Finding the Best School Hand Dryer
When choosing the best hand dryers for your school, key factors that should be part of your decision include running costs and hygiene, but modern hand dryers can also reduce the amount of disturbance to learning by working quicker and quieter than conventional designs.
Reducing Energy Costs and Environmental Impact
Secondary schools can have as many as a thousand students, which can result in hand dryers being used more than 3,000 times daily during breaks and lunch times. Over the course of a year, the cost of using paper towels for this many uses can be more than £4,500 and result in more than 9 tonnes of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere. Ultra-efficient Mitsubishi Electric Wave hand dryers use about a third of the energy of conventional designs, and are responsible for much lower CO2 emissions. For 3,000 daily uses over the course of a year, the Mitsubishi Electric Wave i01 costs just £144 at typical electricity tariffs, and releases about 5% of the CO2 of paper towels, and less than a third of a conventional dryer.
