TO A NEW LEVEL Mitsubishi Electric has launched a new model in its Jet Towel hand dryer range. Called the Jet Towel Slim V9, it offers improved performance in many areas, including a 2dB reduction in the already whisper quiet noise level to 56dB and stronger front and back panels for greater impact resistance.

Since the original Jet Towel was launched in 1993, the design has gone through several generations, keeping it at the forefront of design and innovation. The latest design, the Slim Series, is the ninth iteration of the evolution and builds on this pedigree to provide a smart choice for bathroom installations.

The operating principle of the Jet Towel is based on the generation of


OF THE CROP Deb has launched its new Deb Stoko range – the broadest range of products designed specifically for occupational skin care across a variety of industries including the commercial sector.

The portfolio of Deb Stoko hand cleansers, sanitisers and after-work restore creams have been formulated to address and reduce the spread of infection as well as the risk of occupational skin disease.

In 2013 alone, employee absence from work as a result of sickness cost UK businesses over £28bn. In addition to this significant economic loss, for the employee, the ramifications of such skin conditions can be damaging on an individual level – both in terms of lost income resulting from a prolonged absence from work, as well as the impact on their personal life and general well-being.

Through the use of Deb Stoko products and by implementing a 3-step skin programme in the workplace – cleanse, sanitise,

restore – businesses will be better- placed to maintain a happy, healthy workforce. Products from the range that are particularly well-suited for the commercial sector include Refresh foam soap solutions for washrooms that contain skin conditioners to improve skin hydration and prevent dryness, InstantFOAM Complete, a unique, hypo-allergenic, hand sanitising foam with highly effective formula that kills 99.999% of common germs, and Stokolan Hand & Body moisturising lotion for hand and body, featuring a specialised formulation to hydrate the skin and encourage natural skin regeneration.

In addition to the most expansive range of occupational skin care products available on the market, Deb provides employers and employees with training

and supporting educational materials to help encourage stakeholder buy-in on an issue that is largely overlooked within the commercial sector.

“Occupational skin disease is a serious health issue that goes largely unreported in the workplace: an invisible threat that affects both an organisation’s efficiency and the health and well-being of its employees,” said Paul Jakeway, Marketing Director at Deb UK.

“This is where the new Deb Stoko range comes in. The products and usage programme address the skin care requirements of all end users. They are essential for effective skin health and in reducing the risk of occupational skin disease.” Tomorrow’s Cleaning February 2016 | 69

two thin sheets of high speed air that simultaneously wipe water from both front and back surfaces of hands placed into the drying chamber. The drying time is from only nine seconds – a third of conventional hot air blower dryers.

The fast operation and relatively small amount of air flow means energy consumption is far lower than other dryers and the laminar flow means extraneous noise is not generated. The 56dB noise level is attained partly due to the special wave-shaped air nozzles that minimise interference between the air flows.

Moisture from the hands is collected in a drain tank, the neatest and most hygienic option as it means bacteria are not set free into the surrounding atmosphere by being blown around the room in a hot air stream as they are with other dryers. Additionally Jet Towel is manufactured using a silver

ion antimicrobial material, preventing bacteria growth.

The speed of the drying air is approximately 100 metres per second, so the Jet Towel Slim series works far faster than conventional warm air dryers, which is particularly important in situations where there are likely to be surges in use, such as during intervals at conference centres, lecture theatres and music venues. In fact the Slim series has two speed settings, ‘standard’ and ‘high’, the latter of which can be selected for intensive use installations.

The drive motor at the heart of every Jet Towel has been optimised for airflow duties to ensure low energy consumption. It consumes only 550W-1240W of power, hence its low running costs.
