Considerations for Hand Dryer Selection H


and dryers are an increasingly common solution to replace or complement paper towels. They


eliminate paper towel waste completely, along with the need to manage paper towel inventory. In fact, hand dryers can result in 95 percent cost savings compared to paper towel systems. An authentically sustainable approach to


design requires close attention to all resources used in the restroom. For example, while hand dryers dramatically reduce waste, some can be culprits of high electrical costs. In recent years, evolving consumer preferences have driven demand for hand dryers with quicker dry times. Thus, high speed hand dryers, also known as jet dryers, have increased in popularity. However, many high speed hand dryers run on a high wattages and/or voltages, in addition to high noise levels. Over time, this can lead to higher energy bills. However, newer innovations can satisfy the


desire for a quick, thorough hand-dry without the high energy costs. Bobrick’s new B-7125 InstaDry™ Surface-Mounted Hand


Dryer features an industry-best power rating of 200 watts, or 0.2 kilowatts. When motor life is a consideration, InstaDry also has a longer life expectancy – as much as 7,500 hours, or 10 years in high-traffic environments. This leads to reduced replacement cycles and further savings for the owner. To ensure optimal use of hand dryers, it’s essential to take a holistic approach to product selection. Before specifying a hand dryer, a number of other factors should be considered. Many hand dryers have an institutional aesthetic; recessed or semi-recessed stainless steel units can elevate design. Excess noise can negatively impact the patron experience; researching noise levels can ensure appropriate acoustics for the project. Other models may feature more unique


design elements. Bobrick’s B-3725 Accessible Recessed Hand Dryer features an oversized drying alcove that catches and absorbs water, thereby reducing maintenance while improving hygiene. Although sustainability certifications and


Making a splash at the Royal College of Pathologists


In one of their most eye-catching projects to date, Maxwood installed digitally-printed glass Maxwall duct panels and white, flush-fronted Maranté cubicles in this important centre of medical research. The images are enhanced microscopic images chosen from a selection submitted by college members in a competition, with over 20 images being used across the nine floors. Joel Owen, Design Manager, Maxwood Washrooms said: “Surprisingly, the most challenging detail on this project was the vanity bin configuration. We had to design several variations of the same bracket to support our Corian®


Xeista vanity tops, to avoid pipework and then


incorporate a bin design around these. The final solution was created by fixing lift-out bins to the rear of the vanity panels, which were bottom hinged for access.” Hannah Fothergill, Associate, Bennetts Associates commented: “The resourceful Maxwood attitude to sourcing unusual glass for IPS was great and we welcomed the attention to detail taken to make the bin chutes work in the vanity units. Good attention to detail and efficient process of producing and signing off drawings. High quality product and high quality people!”

designed for ease of use by specifiers, installers and merchant counter staff. Fitted together with a robust and proven brass-bodied solenoid valve assembly, the IRC®


infrared urinal flushing control valve is fully detailed in an informative new sales brochure, sensor now features a compact body shape, an economy


mode option to provide even greater water savings, a new-style mounting bracket for recessed installations and an improved design which allows clients to replace batteries in convenient fashion by simply removing the front fascia to access the battery compartment. The IRC®


is WRAS approved and designed with practicality in mind. Communicative green, amber or employs motion-sensing infrared to automatically


control the flushing of cistern-fed urinals, minimise water wastage and ensure compliance with Water Regulations. When the PIR sensor detects movement, the solenoid valve is activated, allowing water into the cistern. The IRC®


red LED status alerts guide installers and end users to ensure ease of commissioning, testing and confirmation of water-saving operating mode.
