The Qbic Junior is a new budget, high speed and energy efficient hand dryer; brought to you at a price well within the reach of all customers. The unit is the smallest there is, making it perfect for compact spaces such as restaurant toilets. The Qbic Junior is an EU made model, which presents both reduced energy consumption and high velocity airflow at an outstanding price.
Manufacturer states a dry time of 15 seconds
Having both a high velocity airflow and heat means you would anticipate a good dry performance from this compact hand dryer, and although the Qbic Junior doesn't disappoint, we are unable to confirm this until the independent results are determined.
Manufacturer stated 70 dbA
Typically, the sound level of a hand dryer is measured in decibels dB(A) at a distance of one metre within a soundproofed chamber. However, this measurement does not take into account the increase in noise that occurs when hands are placed under the dryer or the impact of sound bouncing off the walls. Wherever possible, we provide the manufacturer dbA level alongside two independent test results, which are more reflective of real conditions.
Recommended for low usage washrooms up to 100 uses per day
Qbic Junior uses 3.75 watts per dry
Based on a 12p per kw of electricity unit cost, the Qbic Junior would cost around 0.045p to 0.06p (£0.00045/£0.0006) per typical drying cycle, and therefore 1,000 dries would cost approximately 45-60p.
Qbic Junior hand dryer offers non-touch action and a relatively swift dry. The Qbic Junior does not come with any enhanced hygiene features.
The Qbic Junior hand dryer features a universal brush motor. The brushes will last somewhere between 750 and 1,100 hours of continuous use before replacement is needed. In drying terms, this would be between 135,000 and 264,000 dries dependent on the level of traffic and the average duration that the hand dryer is in operation.
The Qbic Junior is the lightest, most compact hand dryer in the world, thus providing an easy installation.
Due to the compact form of the Qbic Junior, it doesn't have any easy leverage points. However, as the unit only has an ABS cover, along with the fact that the unit is crafted to keep its price to a minimum, we would advise that whilst the product is acceptable for most areas, locations prone to vandalism would need to consider a sturdier model.
This is typically a good choice for wheelchair users as it takes up little space in the washroom which allows maximum maneuverability. The noise level is also fairly low for a high speed dryer; this is a key consideration, as wheelchair users can often be drying hands at ear level. With regards use by individuals with other disabilities, the unit is intuitive to use and provides drying from a reasonable range of positions. The model is relatively low cost and as disabled washrooms tend to receive lower usage, fitting an expensive hand dryer is often unnecessary.
