Dyson does it again: hygienic hand dryers for schools

This blog announces the relaunch of Utility Rentals’ partnership with Dyson with an overview of the key features and benefits of its new range of hand dryers.

Published: April 15, 2020

It has always been important for school children to wash their hands regularly. The COVID-19 epidemic which is raging here in the UK and across the world makes this even more critical.

Schools may be currently shut down, or at best they might be operating a skeleton service for the children of essential workers, but that won’t last forever. Schooling will restart eventually and, when it does, hand hygiene is going to be even more important than it was before, in order to prevent an upsurge in COVID-19 infections.

There are many hand dryers on the market today, but when it comes to hygienic hand dryers for schools, there is one clear market leader. It’s Dyson, of course.

Dyson’s hygienic AirBlade™ hand dryers

James Dyson has always been at the forefront of innovative design, and the new range of Dyson AirBlade™ commercial hand dryers is the perfect example. Instead of using ordinary air, these dryers incorporate High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, which have been proven to remove 99.5% of the air’s particles before it reaches the user’s hands.

These ultra-hygienic hand dryers are therefore the ideal solution for ensuring newly washed hands remain contaminant-free when dried.

Designed to last in high traffic areas

School toilets and washrooms are bustling areas at break times. But as all Dyson hand dryers are specially engineered with high traffic areas in mind, this doesn’t present a problem. In fact, all of Dyson’s dryers come complete with a five-year guarantee.

Economically and environmentally friendly

Not only are Dyson AirBlade™ hand dryers big on hygiene; they are big on economy too. They are 99% less costly to run than paper towels. Another advantage is that they emit 85% less carbon dioxide. In other words, they are not only beneficial for the environment inside washrooms, but in the outside world too.

Why buy when renting is more economical?

Rather than buying new hand dryers and budgeting to replace them in a few years, it makes sense to rent them. Here at Utility Rentals, we have developed tailored rental solutions to cater for the needs of the education sector. Our solutions allow schools to:

  • Easily acquire the equipment they need
  • Benefit from a complete package that includes installation and support
  • Spread the cost against the equipment’s working life
  • Capital free option – zero upfront cost, pay the rentals using the running cost savings

Renting your hand dryers rather than purchasing them outright helps you to protect your school’s capital budget: money which many schools are likely to need in the coming months.

Save money long-term

If your school still uses paper towels, you may find that switching over to renting the new Dyson AirBlade™ hand dryers saves you money in the long run. It will also take away the nuisance of dispensers running out of towels and the time cost of having to buy, stock and reload them.
