Time and time again studies show that hand dryers to have a lower environmental impact than even 100% recycled paper towels. 100% recycled paper towels require transportation of source material to a production facility, where large amounts of chemicals and water are required for processing. After processing, fuel is used in transporting the paper towels to a distribution centre before reaching restrooms. After use, paper towels still need transportation to landfills, where they release methane gas during decomposition.
Electricity, however, can be generated in numerous green ways, from solar power to hydropower. With 1 kilowatt hour of electricity, the Jet Towel can dry 340 pairs of hands and produces no waste to clog landfills.
The Jet Towel® reduces drying time in two ways: First, the Jet Towel® blows high velocity air onto both sides of the hands simultaneously, reducing the overall drying time. Secondly, hands are inserted flat into the Jet Towel® ensuring that the maximum surface area is dried quicker.
Box-style hand dryers are available for less than $1000 (US). Traditional dryers, however, are so slow that very few people actually use them and leave the restroom disappointed. High speed box dryers are noisy, messy, and unsanitary as the air intake is located directly behind the air jet and therefor sucks up wet, warm air. While the Jet Towel® may be more expensive than traditional dryers, most facilities see a ROI of 12 months or less.
To prevent potential abuse or misuse, the Jet Towel® hand dryer incorporates a built-in timer that automatically halts operation after 30 seconds. Once the hands are removed, the unit resets and resumes normal operation.
The Jet Towel® hand dryer design presumes use at ordinary room temperatures. If the unit is to be utilized at a location with higher than normal temperatures, it is advised that the necessary wiring precautions be taken. In general, the unit should not be used in any area where the temperature regularly exceeds 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit).
