So, let’s start with the market leader. If you’re looking for a fast, efficient hand dryer the obvious go-to is Dyson. They are stylish, innovative and from a brand which has revolutionised the vacuum cleaner, the appeal is most apparent.
If carbon footprint is not of huge concern to you, Dyson can guarantee you efficiency. As with all hand dryers, there is a compromise to be had between energy efficiency and speed. The more efficient the dryer the colder it has to be, the more energy used to heat the air to dry your hands, the less efficient it becomes.
Cost is a primary deciding factor when purchasing hand dryers, especially if placing a bulk order for a multiple-site business. The disappointing thing about Dyson is the outlay. For a company which enjoys such supremacy in the market, the cost is prohibitive to many smaller firms and unjustifiable to many multi-site corporations. A casual glance online brings up prices north of £600 for the popular V-shaped blade model.
XLerator is another brand which has risen to claim a share of the spoils in recent years. Clinching a contract with a large Yorkshire-based Supermarket, they demonstrate an emphasis on power. Unfortunately, the more powerful your hand dryer, the louder it is. In an open-plan office with partition walls, noise pollution can be extremely disruptive and so an XLerator may not be conducive to an efficient, hardworking office environment.
So, is there another option? Tekflo® are a less well-known brand but one which have established themselves as the business choice for commercial hand dryers. Offering a middle ground between cost and efficiency and power and eco concerns, Tekflo’s range of 10 automatic hand dryers has something for everyone.
Tekflo® were established by a band of brothers who had simple aims when it came to manufacturing: design it yourself, make it efficient, keep it affordable. Our extensive range of hand dryers covers the full gambit of applications for any requirement.
