Wherever there is a lot of people and a lot of washrooms, you’re sure to find hand dryers. Hand dryers are particularly important in places that have a duty of care and strict hygiene standards such as workplaces, hospitals, and schools. However, one type of hand dryer doesn’t necessarily suit all locations.
This is especially the case with schools, as both primary and secondary schools have different needs and requirements. Most importantly, noise and heat levels needs to be taken into consideration for younger children, while speed and durability are important for the older kids.
When you’re looking for the best hand dryers for schools 2018 can offer, you should also be considering hygiene, cost, and energy efficiency. Luckily, we have a range of hand dryers that tick all of these boxes and we’ve narrowed your search down to the best hand dryers for primary and secondary schools in this post!
Perfect Hand Dryer for Primary Schools
The age range of children in primary schools is 5-11, or younger if you factor in nursery and reception. Schools have a duty of care as they take on full responsibility for pupils. This is particularly true at the younger age groups, when early development is taking place. At young ages, children’s ears and skin are sensitive and can be damaged easily, which is why it’s important to find hand dryers with appropriate temperature settings and noise levels.
A perfect example of a primary school suitable hand dryer is the MX2000W. Putting out only 72db of noise during operation, it’s extremely quiet compared to the competition. It’s also super fast drying, minimising children’s time away from the classroom and has a cold air setting, eliminating the risk of damage to young pupils’ more sensitive hands.
The MX2000W is cost effective and 75% more energy efficient than most high-speed competitors which means 100 dries can cost as little as 2 pence.
Hygienic, low volume, energy efficient, and cost effective, this is the perfect school hand dryer for primary ages.
