Paper Towels vs. Hand Dryers

Paper Towels vs. Hand Dryers

JET HAND DRYERS SPREAD 1,300 TIMES MORE BACTERIA THAN PAPER TOWELS[1]

What’s more, hand dryers propel germs from hands that were not properly or thoroughly washed.[2]

Hand Dryer

AEROSOLIZATION
Jet dryers reduce the water to droplets which get blown around the restroom, landing on surfaces well over six feet away.3

TOILET PLUMES
JWhen a toilet flushes, it jets microscopic fecal particles into the air. Air dryers can capture the bacteria and germs and blow them right onto your hands.4

DANGEROUS DECIBELS
Many hand dryers operate at levels far louder than their manufacturers claim and at levels that are clearly dangerous to children’s hearing.5

Hand Towel

BACTERIA & GERM CONTROL
Paper towels capture bacteria and germs in the paper fibers, contain them, and provide a controlled path to disposal.6

FRICTIONAL REMOVAL
The rubbing motion of paper fibers over moistened skin breaks the adhesion of bacteria and germs from the skin.7

BETTER DRYING
Germs thrive in moisture. Paper towels dry hands faster and better than air dryers.8

PAPER TOWEL DISPENSERS

Having fully stocked paper towel dispensers is one of the top 10 users’ expectations of clean in a restroom.

Signature Series® Paper Towel Dispenser is specially designed to minimize wasted resources. The design of the cabinet ensures that the user only takes one piece of paper at a time and the absorbent texture of the paper minimizes consumption, which makes it an environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution. Signature Series® trash cans are available in matching dimensions to create an attractive pair.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PAPER TOWEL PRODUCTS

80% of restroom users rate the cleanliness of a restroom based on the availability of paper towels.* Single use paper towels provide users a method to dry their hands and exit the restroom without recontamination from a dirty door handle. Disposable towel systems also eliminate any airborne bacteria associated with air dryers.
