Seattle, WA, April 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The newest Jet Towel hand dryer – the first dryer to use two jets of air to wipe hands dry in 10 seconds – will soon be available in the U.S.A. Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of Jet Towel production, the new Jet Towel is smaller, faster, and quieter than previous models and will launch on May 1st.
The new model incorporates developments influenced from user feedback, including a larger hand drying area, quieter operations, and sleeker design. Engineers at Mitsubishi redesigned the Jet Towel with restroom layout and flow in mind, creating a new body design that is tailored to meet the countertop of sinks for quicker hand washing. New sensors specifically designed for children were added and as the Jet Towel is ADA compliant at its recommended height one dryer will meet the needs of anyone who uses the restroom.
Faster 237 mph air wipes water from hands in 10 seconds to keep dry time to a minimum. Even while increasing air speed, redesigned nozzles reduce air eddies to make the new model quieter than any previous model, which were noted for quietness. Faster air flow and quieter operations do not sacrifice energy-efficiency, however, as the newest Jet Towel is one of the most energy-efficient high speed hand dryers, at 1250 watts (730 with the heater turned off). Energy efficiency has always been a priority with Mitsubishi engineers, who created a motor that uses less electricity than other hands-in dryers.
About the Mitsubishi Jet Towel
Developed in 1993, the Jet Towel was the first hand dryer to use two jets of high-speed air to wipe hands dry in 10 seconds. Mitsubishi’s answer to slow, ineffective hand dryers and wasteful paper towels transformed restrooms across Japan as the first working hand dryer became available. The Jet Towel has distinguished itself in the hand dryer world for its energy-efficiency, quiet operations, and cleanliness, with the trademark drain tank storing water for cleaning at the end of the day.
Due to the energy-efficiency of the Jet Towel, it costs only $25 per year to operate, 98% less than paper towels with 85% less impact on the environment.
