Economy that is hard to beat.
Warm air hand dryers not only dry hygienically and safely, but, are also particularly cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Neither waste nor cleaning costs are involved. Discarded paper towels or wet and dirty fabric towels are unsightly. They also are a breeding ground for germs. Many times the fabric towels are pulled out of its seam and hangs down untidily.

"Flogging an old horse to death"
There is a rumor that surfaces every now and again for what reason, only someone who sells opposition products to hand dryers would know. Almost overnight the unsuspecting public is led to believe that hand dryers are labeled hazardous. That hand dryers breed bacteria, and spread germs. In fact the temperature of the element inside a hand dryer ranges between 85°C and 90°C. Most bacteria are killed at 70°C. The Stiebel Eltron hand dryers are around 110°C air outlet temperature and inside the casing more than 150°C. This high temperature will of course prevent a remarkable bacteria output. There are also no cases of anyone contracting diseases from using a hand dryer since the first electric dryer was installed over 50 years ago. The paper towel industry has obviously used this to stem the success of hand dryer sales world wide. Electric hand dryers take in air from their surroundings and heat it up to a level that effectively kills off existing germs. To the contrary electric hot air hand dryers help to reduce the number of unborn germs. This makes it easy to decide in favor of the hygienic, efficient and environmentally friendly electronic hand dryer.
Hand drying with a breath of fresh air.
An appealing washroom environment always makes a good impression. Stiebel Eltron adds a new touch with a fragrance dispenser that is built into each hand dryer. The washroom will always smell pleasant as each hand dryer has an integral fragrance dispenser that freshens up the environment every time it is used. Replacement cartridges are available in four different fragrances.
