Respect for the environment
MEDICLINICS S.A. is company highly committed to environmental protection that aims primarily at designing and manufacturing products that contribute to the sustainable development of our economy.
It is for this reason that most of our products are manufactured with recyclable materials and our new hand dryers are characterized, above all, by their low energy consumption (between 420 and 1,500 W) and by drying hands in just 10 - 15 seconds.
By doing so, Mediclinics wants to contribute to the satisfaction of current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy their own, guaranteeing the balance between economic growth, environmental care and social welfare.
Nowadays, sustainability is a key factor in the construction, rehabilitation, renovation and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure.
Mediclinics seeks to address these needs by developing solutions that contribute to this sustainability and offering energy-efficient and environmentally friendly products.
A sign of this commitment to sustainability and the environment is the "Blaue Engel" ("Blue Angel") certification, which our most emblematic hand dryers can boast of. The Blaue Engel is an ecolabel awarded by the federal government of Germany. It sets high standards for environmentally friendly product design and since 1978 it has been a reliable guide for a more sustainable consumption.
Our high-speed, state-of-the-art hand dryers use approximately 90% less energy than conventional warm air hand dryers.
Paper towels use approximately 70 Watts of energy per drying cycle, whereas our new state-of-the-art hand dryers consume between 0.6 and 4.2 Watts per drying cycle.
Mediclinics' cutting-edge hand dryers generate 45 times less waste than paper towels.
A typical fast food restaurant with two services uses an average of 910 kilos of paper towel per year. This is the equivalent of cutting 34 trees.
first and foremost
Let's imagine a restaurant with an average traffic of 250 people per day in its two services. The average cost of a paper towel sheet is approximately € 0.012 and in each service the user spends 2.5 paper towel sheets on average to dry his hands. In only one year, the restaurant will have spent € 2,737 on paper towels only.
Now, let´s take the same restaurant with a Dualflow Plus type of hand dryer that consumes a maximum of 4.2 W per service. If the average price of electric energy is € 0.14 / kWh, it will have an annual cost of € 33.8.
Our state-of-the-art hand dryers, besides being respectful with the environment, are also very hygienic since they incorporate HEPA filter media, ionizers ("Ion Hygienic") and silver ion technology (Biocote ®)
Our most hygienic secret
The "Ion Hygienic" technology, together with the three-layer HEPA filter medium (cellulose pre-filter + active carbon filter + HEPA filter medium) and the air freshener tablet, eliminate most of the airborne particles and germs , making it healthier and purer.
