Transforming the Future of Hand Hygiene in the Workplace



When it comes to workplace efficiency and hand hygiene, the dryer is often an overlooked culprit. As facility managers, building operators, and energy directors know, effectively managing workplace energy use is essential for creating a more sustainable and cost-effective organisation.

In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how the Savortex® dryers help achieve these goals by optimizing drying times and reducing energy consumption. So read on to learn more about how the Savortex dryers can create smarter and more energy-efficient workplaces!

Key problems with traditional hand dryers

The first step to creating a more efficient workplace is to understand the inefficiencies of traditional hand dryers. Traditional hand dryers are often bulky and difficult to clean, which can lead to hygiene issues. In addition, they often have long drying times, which can lead to frustration among employees and customers who need to use them.


What’s more, traditional hand dryers are often very energy-intensive, which means they can contribute significantly to a company’s carbon footprint. In fact, according to the Carbon Trust, traditional hand dryers can use up to 6 times more energy than the Savortex dryer! These machines consume between 1,100 and 2,400 watts, which drain electricity. Not only does this affect you as a business owner with higher utility bills, but it also affects our environment by releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Also, traditional hand dryers are a problem because the way they’re designed makes it impossible to verify manufacturing claims of actual energy consumption and drying times, so how can we use these stats efficiently?
