Choosing Hygienic Hand Dryers for Your Office
During the pandemic, there was increased awareness of the importance of good hand hygiene and its impact on reducing the transmission of illnesses. Modern hand dryers such as the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 and i01 feature a number of design innovations that contribute to better workplace hygiene.

Conventional hand dryers worked on a timer and were activated by a button that the user had to press to switch on the fan and heating system. This mode of operation meant that as different users passed through the bathroom they could inadvertently spread germs from one person to another if hands had not been fully cleaned.
With automatic or hands-free hand dryers, a sensor is located in the drying area and when a hand is present, the fan switches on. This means that the users do not have to touch the device and risk spreading germs.
