eHA members were asked to contribute to the special edition of ECJ (European Cleaning Journal) on the evolution of electric hand dryers. A broad picture has been painted by the editors. Fact is, electric hand dryers set standards when it comes to topics like energy efficiency – through its whole life-cycle – hygiene, carbon foodprint (low emissions), low waste, and clean and tidy public restrooms.
The bathrooms in any restaurant are vital for promoting hygiene and, at the same time, building customer loyalty. All the little touches that personalize them and make them more aesthetically pleasing and more functional but which also make them more hygienic, clean and tidy, will be beneficial for the opinions of users in general and critics in particular.
Researchers from the University of Arizona reviewed existing studies. Their findings, published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology in August 2020, identified which hygiene studies are credible and should be consulted for their results and recommendations.
By using a cost savings calculator from one of our members, you can gauge an estimated annual savings when comparing hand dryers vs. paper towels cost.
Time and again electric hand dryers are unjustly denigrated in social media reports and the press. A critical examination of the reports and facts is therefore essential, to weed out the fake news from factual information.
eHA therefore continues to call upon the European Commission to not only take non-energy products into the scope of the SPI, but to ensure that products offering the same services or consumer benefits are assessed in comparison to each other.

Many pathogens are passed from hand to hand and from doorknob to doorknob, for example in the office. Frequent hand washing protects against smear infections, for example with gastrointestinal viruses. The Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA) points this out. But thorough hand drying is also part of it.
