How to Choose a Commercial Hand Dryer

How to Choose a Commercial Hand Dryer?

At Allen Commercial Door & Specialty Hardware we offer a wide range of products to our commercial clients to help their buildings to look and perform their best. One of things that we do offer are hand dryers. Having a hand drying station in your bathroom is essential to maintaining cleanliness. If you have ever had the misfortune of encountering a broken hand dryer, you know all too well the uncomfortable feeling that it can leave you with.

If you do not want the persons entering your building and using your facilities to be left in such straights, we can help. Here is our guide to choosing the most efficient and reliable hand dryers for your circumstances.


Probably the most important factor to consider when purchasing anything is your budget. As with anything on the market, you are likely to find products ranging in price and quality. Commercial hand dryers are no different. You do not have to break the bank to get a quality hand dryer but opting for the cheapest model could leave you wanting as well. The key is to strike a balance by reviewing qualities and features that are most important to you and arriving at the best option that way.


Next you will want to evaluate the amount of traffic your washroom receives. If it gets most of its traffic from a small group of employees, you may be able to get away with a more budget friendly model. If, however, your washroom is a high traffic area, then you will want to make durability high on your list of priorities.


Lower end hand dryers often bring a lot of noise along with use. This may not bother you so much, but if it is in an area where it disturbs employees that are working or interrupts conversation elsewhere, it may grate on you over time. Take into consideration where the washroom is located and make noise control a priority if it has the potential to disrupt daily activities.

There will never cease to be an endless line of newer and shinier products with each coming year. Equipped with these factors in mind, however, you can be best prepared to make the right purchase for your needs regardless of what is on the market.

At Allen Commercial Door & Specialty Hardware, we want to help introduce clients to the best products for them. If you have questions about the types of hand dryers we provide and which ones we personally recommend, why not give us a call?
