AIRDRI HELP WASHROOM USERS MAKE SUSTAINABLE


CHOICES The washroom environment faces multiple eco challenges. From the over-use of water, paper towel wastage, and the energy consumption of hand dryers. Finding a solution that is both sustainable and effective can be complex. However, this doesn’t mean that sustainability shouldn’t be high on the wish list when it comes to procurement. There are solutions on the market that tick all the boxes – from effectiveness to efficiency.


Paper towels vs. hand dryers


There has long been a battle between the paper towel and hand dryer industry for the hygiene top spot. But when it comes to considering which method has the least impact on the environment, it seems jet dryers win the race.


When you look at the green credentials of paper towels, it’s clear to see why they are deemed the less sustainable option. Whilst paper towels do not require energy to deliver an effective dry, we must consider the efficiency of the manufacturing process, the high levels of waste when people dispense more than necessary, and the need for constant replenishment.


We should also consider the materials they are composed of and where they end up after use. The process of converting trees into the end product comes with a high cost to our planet’s forests and the emissions created during shipping, and those released when a paper towel decomposes in landfill, are concerning.


Of course, a hand dryer requires energy to power it, but the

manufacturing process and longevity of the product deliver far superior eco-results. When it comes to looking for a sustainable hand drying solution, look for hand dryers that minimise the environmental impact through very low energy consumption and long lifecycles, keeping landfill to a minimum.


Low energy consumption


Investing in a hand dryer that will go the distance, as well as keeping energy running costs to a minimum, is key. Take our Airdri Quantum and Airdri Quazar models for example. They both deliver a robust hand drying solution and have also achieved the coveted GreenSpec status for using less than 1,000 watts. In fact, the Airdri QuantumTM is the lowest energy consumption unit in the world.


Consider durability


A durable hand dryer will not only keep running costs to a minimum, but will also reduce the number of dryers sent to landfill. Over the past four decades, we have been committed


to improving the durability of our machines. Eliminating problems relating to the wear and tear of motor brushes, by using the latest motor technology, means that, on average, Airdri hand dryers have a lifespan of around 6,000 hours. That is six times longer than that of other similar, fast dry models.


When placed on lifecycle testing, Airdri’s latest model - the Quantum jet dryer - lasted for over 10,000 hours. Since most other popular jet dryer units only last for approximately 1,000 hours, the Airdri Quantum represents a very significant saving in both running costs and environmental impact.


With over 45 years’ experience, Airdri is committed to sustainability through reduction in energy consumption, and extending the lifespan of its hand dryers. Airdri will continue to put innovation at the heart of its business to ensure it creates cutting-edge washroom solutions for many more decades to come.
