There is a lot to consider when it comes to choosing the right hand-drying solution for your rail fleet. From meeting rail standards to finding a reliable supply partner, it can be quite a challenge.
When fitting hand dryers to trains, there are several factors to consider:
Space and Mounting: Choose a hand dryer that fits securely in the available space without obstructing other fixtures or movement. Look at mounting options such as wall-mounted or recessed installation.
Power Supply and Electrical Load: Select a hand dryer that matches your train's voltage standards and doesn't overload the electrical circuits.
Durability and Safety: Choose hand dryers designed for high-traffic environments with robust construction, impact resistance, and safety features. Look for thermal protection to prevent overheating during continuous operation.
Hygiene and Cleanliness: Consider hand dryers with features like HEPA filters and antimicrobial coatings for cleanliness.
Accessibility and Universal Design: Ensure that the hand dryers comply with accessibility standards and universal design principles. Consider features like low-mounted controls or touchless operation, making them accessible for passengers with disabilities or reduced mobility.
Energy Efficiency: Opt for hand dryers that are energy efficient to minimise power consumption without compromising drying performance.
Regulatory Compliance: Ensure hand dryers meet relevant safety and regulatory standards including those relating to electric equipment, electromagnetic compatibility, fire and smoke, and shock and vibration.
Maintenance and Accessibility: Choose hand dryers that are easy to maintain and access for routine maintenance, filter replacements, or repairs.
Service and Support: Partner with a manufacturer or supplier that offers maintenance contracts, spare parts availability, and responsive customer support.
