Hand Dryers are the economical choice for Businesses and in the current climate of well, worrying about the climate, the pressure to turn your business ‘Green’ and more economical has never been so great. Whether you believe in climate change or not, as an ethical business owner, it certainly helps to be seen to be doing your bit in the struggle against global warming.

The dilemma many businesses face is a simple one Hand dryer VS Paper towels.


In the past, the debate has been closely run. Conventional heaters of the past used a great deal of electricity; they had inefficient motors and largely inefficient heating elements. In short, they made a big deal out of drying your hands and were pretty unfriendly to the environment as they went about it. The case paper towels made against these conventional hand dryers was strong, although the use of paper towels does not require electricity; the production process does produce a large amount of carbon emissions. When you factor in deforestation, the manufacture and transportation of paper towels they do not stand out as the most environmentally friendly options. Although, credit where credits due, paper towels did seem to be the most economic option.

Thankfully, technology has come an incredibly long way. Hand dryers have never been so powerful, energy efficient and reliable. Using high speed motors to produce incredible airflow, hand dryers now achieve an impressive energy saving over older models. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology in a 2011 study places this saving at around the staggering 70% mark. It is believed the 70% figure also is true against paper towels.

    We moved to Ginger Mats from our previous supplier in 2012, and have nothing but praise for the product and the customer service. The quality of our entrance mat is to the same standard as before, and when we have had an issue, this has been resolved very quickly and to our complete satisfaction. All this at a fraction of the cost of our previous supplier.
