Thinking about putting hand dryers in our Year 1 toilets as they use loads of hand towels

Any recomended hand dryers looking at blade types possible

www.intelligenthanddryers.com/products/ ... white-jj01

I know they will still use hand towels but maybe not half as many

Any thoughts welcome good or bad

Thanks

Only have hand dryers, I stopped paper towels nearly 20 years ago due to cost and mess. Buy middle of the road dryer (£150) and get my sparky to fit them. Never any problem and they are that cheap when they go bump we just change them.
Little kids don't use them as much as the noise frightens them.

Same here, but we are still pulling toilet paper off the ceilings!

If you have issues with kids finding them too noisy, I can recommend this one:

It's less powerful so quieter - does take longer for them to dry their hands though.

We have air driers in our toilets but recently it has been decided by the 'SENCO' that they can upset 1 or 2 of the 'special needs' children so they have to go. I reckon this will cost us hundreds a year never mind the potential for waste and blockages caused by the paper which will no doubt go everywhere - which is why they were removed originally. I did suggest they use the disabled toilet as they only have paper dispensers but that was dismissed as labeling the children as different. Guess who will be doing the extra work? Not the SENCO
