Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What is cold rolled steel? How does it compare with stainless steel?"
A. Cold rolled steel is a metal forming process which increases the strength and hardness of the steel and improves the surface finish. It does not change the properties of the steel, so it is still subject to rust; however, cold rolled steel is often painted not only to be decorative, but also to protect the metal. Different from cold rolled steel is Stainless steel - an alloy that is highly rust and corrosion resistant, and for this reason, it can be polished or matte finished without requiring a protective coating.

Q. "How loud are these hand dryers?"
A. The Airforce is rated at 83 dB (decibels), which is about as loud as a standard hair dryer or a household blender. The SmartDri has multiple speeds, so it may be louder or softer depending on how it is programmed by the installer.

Q. "Why should I purchase a hand dryer for my business?"
A. There are many reasons to use a hand dryer instead of traditional paper towels, both environmental and economical. Studies have found that the production of paper towels is twice as energy intensive as the use of hand dryers and creates more greenhouse gases, and while paper towels can be made from recycled paper, they cannot be recycled, and so each paper towel that is thrown away winds up in a landfill. Add this to the fact that paper costs continue to rise, and a business has to pay someone (or multiple someones) to order, restock, inventory, and finally dispose of paper towels, and you have an ongoing expense and hassle. Overflowing trash bins are a source for potential fines and create a negative image. Depending on the volume of paper towels used at your business, it could even cause increased fees from the waste management company that takes the used paper towels to the landfill. That's not even counting customer or client frustration if the paper towels run out, or if paper towels are used to vandalize the sinks or toilets. With automatic hand dryers, cleaning becomes more efficient for janitorial staff, which saves time, which in turn saves money. Is it no wonder that hand dryers typically pay for themselves in about a year? And with an expected lifespan, with regular maintenance, of over 10 years, it truly is an economical decision to choose one of these automatic hand dryers, not just an environmental one.

Q. "I already have hand dryers at my business. Why should I trade them out?"
A. Technology is constantly advancing. The hand dryer that was the height of technological advancement, efficiency, and noise reduction 15 years ago is less efficient and noisier than the hand dryers of today. If your hand dryer is older and needing more maintenance, it's probably time to replace it with a more efficient and quieter model. It will save your company time, reduce frustration, and over the life of the hand dryer, it will save money.

Q. "How do hand dryers reduce the spread of bacteria?"
A. Hand dryers in general reduce the spread of harmful bacteria mostly by reducing the things people need to touch. With these automatic hand dryers, all you have to do is present your hands to activate the drying process. Unlike traditional hand dryers or paper towel dispensers, automatic hand dryer activation helps prevent cross contamination; there are no buttons or levers to push and no dropping wet paper towels into dark garbage cans for someone else to have to handle later.

Q. "What is the benefit of cast iron construction?"
A. Per the manufacturer, the cast iron models are literally bullet proof. What this means for you is that they will stand up to pretty much anything, making them ideal for high traffic and high abuse locations, such as public restrooms, schools, rec areas, parks, etc.
