We appreciate that for some locations, the price is all that matters. These days, cheap hand dryers are no longer poor performing hand dryers, with many offering excellent energy efficiency and dry speeds. Unlike other websites, we do not falsely market these products and make it clear that they are only suitable for low, even mid-traffic locations, but do not represent the best value in busier areas. The price tends to reflect the motor life span so we urge you to only buy automatic hand dryers once you have checked out the lifespan calculator for your facilities requirements. Please contact us on 0114 3540047 for more assistance.
Even the cheapest hand dryers in our range are non-touch, sensor-operated units and come with a minimum 2-year warranty. This is the same as offered by some of our competitors on their premium models.
If you are buying for a location that is not heavily used, then it is possible to buy cheap automatic hand dryers that will last for a very long time. Even the lowest cost units should last 100,000 cycles, so for some locations, this may equate to many years of use. An office with 5 staff for example may only get 20 uses per day split between the male and female bathrooms, this would only be 2500 uses in a whole year. A busier location may use a dryer 100,000 times in less than a year, in which case it doesn't make sense to buy cheap.
Cheap hand dryers are not too dissimilar from their more expensive counterparts. All hand dryers are generally made up of a sensor, a PCB board, a motor, a heater element, and plastic and steel housing. Depending on the recycled content of the materials used, the weight of the product will largely determine the carbon footprint. Therefore buying a cheap hand dryer with lower quality components that won't last, can often mean producing a product several times more than necessary. As with everything, its important to buy quality that lasts to reduce environmental impact, this is especially true of electrical items.
