What makes hand dryers eco-friendly?

Exceptional Energy Efficiency

Our custom motors help achieve best in class energy efficiency – running from just 200 watts.

Very low running costs

Based on standard UK electricity rates our Quantum dryer will cost just £10 per year to run based on 200 washes per day, 365 days per year.

Environmentally friendly

Save hundreds of kilograms of paper towels going to landfill by choosing electric hand dryers.

Long Lifespan

Our dryers have a reputation for reliability. Our Quantum was tested to 10,000 hours.


Setting the bar for hand dryer efficiency, the new ECO range includes Airdri’s Quantum hand dryer, which, costing just £10 per year to run, is the most energy efficient hand dryer available worldwide. It offers a 96% reduction in the annual outlay for electricity when compared to a standard dryer, meaning not only lower running costs, but a drastic reduction in energy consumption.

The Airdri ECO range features three hand dryer models that all run on less than 1,000 watts, the industry standard for a dryer to be considered ‘green’.


Be aware of the impact of paper towels on the environment

Whilst you can purchase paper towels that are made from recycled materials, the paper towel itself cannot be recycled because of potential contamination risks and as such, must be sent to landfill, usually in plastic bags. With each paper towel weighing 2 grams – it doesn’t take long for even a small business to generate a vast amount of paper towel waste.

We’ve created a calculator that can give you an accurate estimation of how much paper towel waste your business sends to landfill.
