  • Course Description: AEC Daily: Touch-Free, Hygienic, and Sustainable Hand-Drying Solutions for Commercial Restrooms


    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), handwashing is one of the best and easiest ways to prevent the spread of germs. However, drying hands is just as important as washing them. This course introduces the reader to the main features of air knife hand dryers and discusses how their technical components, such as high-efficiency particulate (HEPA) filtration, touch-free operation, and fast dry times, contribute to their hygienic performance.



    Learning Objectives

    Explain how air knife hand dryers can reduce energy use, waste, carbon emissions, cost, and resource use.

    State some of the common misperceptions surrounding the use of commercial hand dryers and the differences in energy consumption and waste reduction among hand-drying solutions.

    Describe how the technological components of hand dryers reduce waste and energy use and improve hygiene performance.

    List the sustainability advantages of air knife hand dryers over paper towels and explain how waste reduction can conserve natural resources.

    Discuss safety guidelines for reopening restrooms in existing commercial spaces and protocols to follow for new builds while contributing to multiple credit categories in green building programs such as WELL v2™ and LEED® v4.1 in the Building Design and Construction, Interior Design and Construction, and Building Operations and Maintenance rating systems.
