Jet Towel Offers Quick Hand-Drying Solution

Monday, February 05, 2007

Suwanee, Ga. - Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division, Suwanee, Ga., has introduced its new Jet Towel® hand dryer, which is perfect for the medical, hospitality and educational industries. According to Chuck Applebee, product manager, the Mitsubishi Jet Towel is a great alternative to paper towels or conventional hand dryers.

"Mitsubishi Jet Towel reduces overall hand drying from the 30 or 40 seconds required by a typical hand dryer, to only five or six seconds," says Applebee. "Jet Towel reduces drying time in two ways. First, it blows high velocity air onto both sides of the hands simultaneously, reducing the overall drying time. Secondly, hands are inserted flat into the Jet Towel ensuring that the maximum surface area is dried more quickly. Water is driven off the hands rather than trying to dry it like conventional systems."

Applebee explains that since the product does not come in contact with the hands, Jet Towel usage is extremely sanitary, and because no paper waste is generated, it offers the added benefit of keeping the washroom environment clean and tidy. By eliminating paper waste, Jet Towel provides excellent cost savings. For example, a restroom used 400 times daily will save an estimated $3,765 annually in paper costs and labor, adds Applebee.

"With no more towel dispensers requiring refills, there's no more paper waste to pile up and no trash to take away. In addition, the water from hands is collected in the unit's drain tank, keeping the floors clean and dry. Jet Towel is designed for ease of maintenance and helps keep facilities safe and clean," says Applebee.

Additional benefits include explanatory stickers provided with each hand dryer to present simple instructions for first-time users and a built-in timer that automatically halts operation after 30 seconds. "In addition to the many performance and safety benefits Jet Towel provides, the hand dryer is stylish and adds a wow factor to any standard or high-end restroom," explains Applebee. "Also, the Jet Towel is quiet. At 65dB(A) Jet Towel produces considerably less noise than the typical 75dB(A) to 90dB(A) of other hand dryers."

Easy to install, Jet Towel requires no extra reinforcement. When mounting on a concrete wall, metal or wood, screw plugs are advisable. For more information on Mitsubishi Jet Towel, visit
