Hand drying

Wet hands carry a greater risk of cross-contamination than dry hands by spreading 1,000 times more bacteria to surfaces. Initial hand drying solutions effectively reduce the amount of moisture and the number of microorganisms left on the hands after washing. 

Our range of hand dryers includes no-touch paper towel dispensers, traditional paper towel and linen dispensers and electric hand dryers.

Effective hand drying reduces contamination risk and protects hands.

Choosing the optimal hand-drying solution

There are several factors to consider when choosing which drying method to provide. These include cost of installation and maintenance, efficacy, speed in drying, comfort in use, environmental impact, noise and dispersal of microorganisms.

It can therefore be challenging to choose a hand-drying method which protects your customers and simultaneously meets your unique business needs. Find out more about the available solutions in our latest whitepaper.
