Switching from paper towels to hand dryers in your washroom can make significant impacts and help you achieve several of your key facility goals improving cleanliness and hygiene, eliminating maintenance needs and reducing your day to day operational costs.
Paper towels can be a hazard in any environment, particularly in a healthcare facility with stringent hygiene guidelines. There has been a lot of discussion around bacteria when comparing hand dryers vs paper towels. Not only do paper towels cause blockages in low flow toilets, they also pile up around waste bins , creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
Proper hand hygiene is among the most important steps hospital staff can take to prevent infections in patients. Our automatic hand dryers are a proven hand drying solution.
