Are Hand Dryers Actually Full of Bacteria?

A common misconception about hand dryers is that they are filled with bacteria which is passed onto our hands as we dry them.

What this misconception fails to consider, is the evolution of hand drying technology.
Over time, hand dryers have evolved to dry hands at high speed, in as little as 12-15 seconds.

They have also evolved to be more hygienic for users, thanks to the HEPA filter.


Choose Hygiene. Choose HEPA.


What is ‘HEPA’?

HEPA stands for ‘High Efficiency Particle Arrestor’, which works to trap tiny particles (up to 0.3 micrometers in diameter) found in the air.


Why They’re Great

ATC HEPA filters capture 99.9% of harmful particles, giving you a seamless, hygienic hand drying experience.

This January, colds, flu and Covid are widespread.
You can help to fight the transmission of harmful particles through the use of our range of HEPA Filter Hand Dryers.

Choose from:

The Panther

– Suitable for high traffic areas & available in brushed stainless steel


The Tiger ECO

– Suitable for medium traffic areas & available in brushed stainless steel or white


The Premium Blade

– Suitable for areas of high traffic, sleek silver design


You change your coffee filter regularly, right? The same applies to HEPA filters. Make sure to change your HEPA filter every 6 months – those particles add up, and over time reduce the effectiveness of the filter.

A Closer Look

ATC HEPA filters are composed of thin fibres of glass and carbon-activated material. The result is a thick, paperlike material arranged in pleats. Particles passing through the air are trapped within this material.

Did you Know?

The Panther HEPA filter comes complete with an anti-bacterial layer, and stylish stainless steel outer casing for a sleek finish. Simply slide in or out for install and removal!
