Which Hand Dryer ?
Which Hand Dryer To Choose !
If you are intending to purchase a hand dryer, you will be confused by the number of different models & brands available in the market.There are plenty of parameters that distinguish one dryer from another. This is why you have to understand exactly what your requirement before you make the purchase. You could see the use of a dryer in a public toilet, shopping centre, hospitals, office block or resturant. Over the years, the touch free dryer has slowly replaced the push button dryer. If you would want something for your house then you wouldn't obviously care too much about it. The touch free dryer uses an infra red sensor to detect presence and start the air blast immediately, it is much more hygeinic and consume less energy due to the automatic turn off feature. For heavy use places, such as airports, big factories, food industry, it isn't a bad idea to go for quick dry version. These hand dryers send enough hot air blasts to dry a hand completely in 10 - 15 seconds, which is much faster compared to the traditional dryers that take more than 30 - 45 seconds. Incredibly, the quick dry versions actually save energy as well, because they operate for less time than a normal dryer. If time isn't really very important, you could settle for something cheaper. The voltage at which the dryers operate and their power wattage can make a huge difference to the energy costs. Although this difference isn't a problem for large offices it could be a problem for a small business or a house. The energy costs have to be kept to a minimum. If you are looking for hand dryers, you might want to consider the noise factor as well. You wouldn't want a loud dryer in offices which could end up disturbing a lot of people. The distance from the restroom to the offices should be considered when selecting the type of hand dryer. This would be helpful at workplace where there is a constant stream of people using the restrooms. The mounting of hand dryers is another important factor that you have to consider. Depending on where they are installed, it should be easy to mount them at the right height. Some dryers are likely to be used only by men and some only by women. But wherever you install them, you will have to ensure children and adults will be able to use it. There are special mounting accessories that come with dryers for handicapped people. The look and feel of the hand dryers is another feature you can consider. In luxury hotels and classy restaurants it is not uncommon to find gold shaded dryers. Whether it is epoxy white, stainless steel or chrome finish, the dryers have to be consistent with the decor of a classy restroom. Graphite and custom colors can also be found if you are looking for flashy dryers. Gold finish and chrome finish are usually more expensive than others.
