Which Is The Best Hand Dryers For Bathrooms?

Hand dryers for bathrooms are important electric devices which must be found in any public washrooms. They may either operate with a button or automatically using an infrared sensor to dry hands.

Types of Hand Dryers for Bathrooms

There are two main types of hand dryers; high speed hand dryer and automatic/ infrared sensor activated hand dryer.

The first type is high speed hand dryers. Not only are they better for the user, and not only can you get more users through a busy bathroom, but they are vastly more energy efficient than traditional hand dyers.  That is because they use less energy and they are on for a shorter period of time.  There is one major trade off to high speed hand dryers and this as that they are louder than slower hand dryers.  There is almost a directly proportional relationship between time to dry and level of noise.  There are a lot of quiet hand dryers available, usually at a good price, but you are giving up performance.

The second type is automatic / infrared sensor activated hand dryer.  An automatic hand dryer is more hygienic since the user never touches it and it also saves energy since it stops running as soon as you remove your hands.  Automatic hand dryers have become so much more popular than push button dryers that all of the new, fast hand dryers are designed with only an automatic option.

The next optional hand dryer is World Dryer SmartDri Hand Dryer. The Smartdri is a really great new hand dryer by Illinois based World Dryer.   This is a high speed hand dryer that has 5 air outlets instead of one, so it disperses the air more evenly over the hands.  At full speed, the Smartdri is on the noisy side, but this dryer can be adjusted to turn the speed of the motor, and therefore the noise level down.  At its lowest level this is a very quiet hand dryer.  You can also turn of the heating element and so the Smartdri can be set to a very low energy consumption level.  Of course you give up performance when you turn the motor down, but it is great to have that option in case you install the dryer and then realize it is too loud.
