Initial Washroom Hygiene and SAVORTEX® launch new hand dryer


EcoCurveTM complements the Signature range and delivers a positive environmental impact in the washroom

27 March 2014: Initial Washroom Hygiene has expanded its range of washroom products with the launch of the new EcoCurveTM hand dryer, designed and manufactured in the UK by SAVORTEX, an award winning green technology company.

IMG - Initial Washroom Hygiene and SAVORTEX® launch new hand dryer


With electrical power consumption of just 550W, the EcoCurveTM is an energy-saving, smart hand dryer, which perfectly complements Initial Washroom Hygiene’s Signature range.

Designed with an in-built and patented energy recovery system, the dryer curves warmed air, once triggered by four intelligent sensors, straight to the users’ palms and dries them in just 11 seconds, saving both time and money.  In fact the energy used is so low that 59 pairs of hands can be dried for the equivalent cost of just one paper towel. As with other products in the Signature range, the EcoCurve’s design integrates anti-bacterial technology to improve surface hygiene and help prevent the spread of germs in the washroom. The EcoCurveTM design has achieved a Quiet Mark from the Noise Abatement Society.

The EcoCurveTM is also available with a unique communications link that records real-time energy usage and transmits this data to a server, enabling energy use to be monitored via a web portal.  With no consumables or heating elements to service and a self-cleaning air flow, the EcoCurveTM range comes with an industry-leading 7 year parts warranty.

Dr Peter Barratt, Technical Manager, Initial Washroom Hygiene, comments: “We understand the importance of preventing cross-contamination via good hand hygiene, and providing effective hand drying facilities is a key part of this.  The EcoCurveTM dryer combines great design and proven energy savings, with technological advances that deliver the ability for hand dryer use and energy consumption to be recorded.  Like other products in our range, the EcoCurveTM provides the optimum level of hygiene and sophistication in the washroom.”
