Jet Towels vs Paper Towels
Paper towel dispensers have long been in use, however they are costly, high maintenance and require continual waste management in order to prevent a build-up of bacteria. Studies have shown that bacteria can multiply up to 1000 times on damp towels and surfaces if left unattended.
The use of paper towels poses a number of other issues, including the risk of blockages when not correctly disposed of as well as the reality that can easily run out if stock levels are not maintained. This makes them not only a more labour intensive option but considerably less hygienic if users are unable to dry their hands.
The continued use of paper towels is also of great environmental concern. It is estimated that globally, paper towels result in 254 MILLION tons of landfill every year and that 17 trees are chopped down for every ton of paper towels made. In this way, the overall carbon emissions produced throughout the lifecycle of a paper towel has a devastating impact on our environment.
In contrast, electric hand dryers can reduce running costs by up to 97%, require minimum maintenance and produce zero waste. They are the hand hygiene solution for the modern world.
Our recycling technologies recover up to 70% of plastic for use in new products, further protecting the environment for future generations.
