Green Hand Dryers - High Speed, Energy Efficient Hand Dryers

View by:

Sustainable Supply has an incredible selection of hand dryers from all the major manufacturers. Hand dryers have been around for a long time, but have also changed quite a bit in that time. If you’re debating about whether to install paper towel dispensers or hand dryers, here’s the top reasons our customers have cited for going with the hand dryer:

  • Saves money over the lifetime of the product

  • Cleaner experience in the restroom

  • High efficiency

  • Less maintenance required

High speed, energy efficient (HSEE) hand dryers are today’s industry standard. These aren’t the hand dryers of your childhood. Manufacturers like Excel Dryer have taken every problem related to those older, traditional models, and eliminated them. Gone are the 60 second drying times. Gone is the need to push a button to activate the unit. And most importantly, gone is the need to finish drying your hands on your pants because the dryer simply wasn’t getting the job done!



Today’s HSEE dryers boast 10-15 second dry times and use up to 90% less electricity than those traditional models from your childhood. 10 seconds is also the average time that it takes a person to dry her hands with paper towels, so hand dryers today have closed the gap.



High-efficiency hand dryers today, when compared to paper towel dispensers, can produce considerable savings. Consider the following usage data: (your consumption and cost might vary)


Number of cases of paper towel used annually: 10

Cost per case delivered (include freight and tax): $40.00

Number of towels per case: 4000



Total paper towel costs per year: $400.00

Handling cost (50% of item cost - generating requisitions, purchase orders, receiving, storing, servicing, collecting and disposing of used towels): $200.00



TOTAL COST OF PAPER TOWELS PER YEAR: $600.00


Using the same information, consider the savings generated by high-efficiency hand dryers:


Number of paper towels used annually: 40,000

Number of hand dryings annually (40,000 divided by 2.5 towels per dry): 16,000

Hours of hand dryer usage (based on number of dryings above): 67

Cost of electricity per hour (1.5 KW x .20): $0.30



TOTAL ANNUAL HAND DRYER COSTS: $20.00


The total operating costs for paper towels and hand dryers are very different. Paper towels conservatively cost in excess of 90% more than HSEE hand dryers. If you’re looking to save money and energy in the restroom, Sustainable Supply can help you get there.
