Noisy & Messy vs. Quiet & Clean

Two decades of Mitsubishi continuous product innovation have sustained the Jet Towel® as the premiere high speed hand dryer.

Mitsubishi set the bar for a fast dry time in 1993 and while other dryers have met Mitsubishi’s standard, no other dryer provides the same efficiency or cleanliness that users of the Mitsubishi Jet Towel® enjoy.

Quiet Operations

In every head-to-head comparison, the Jet Towel® has been declared the quietest hand dryer. Mitsubishi’s focus on quiet operations ensures that people outside of the restroom are not disturbed by other using the Jet Towel®. A lower air speed reduces operating volume by 3 dB for noise-sensitive areas such as libraries, museums, or studios.


For 20 years the Jet Towel® has featured a drain tank that contains 800 uses and takes less than one minute to clean. Other dryers take this same water and spill onto floors and walls, where water trails create an environment conducive to mold and bacterial growth.

Energy Efficiency

Other dryers use 1,400 + watts to dry hands in 10 seconds using cold air. With heated air the Jet Towel® requires only 1250 watts, 10% less than comparable dryers. With the heater turned off, the Jet Towel® uses only 730 watts, almost 50% less than dryers at a comparable setting.

ADA Compliant at One Mounting Height

Open-sided design, child sensors, and a unique design enable one mounting height to meet the needs of everyone using the Jet Towel®. In restrooms where only one hand dryer is needed, this avoids the problem of a lower height that might be uncomfortable for some users.

No Water Blowback

A lower trigger sensor begins airflow only after hands have fully entered the dryer. Other dryers start drying as soon as fingertips enter the dryer, blowing water back up the wrist as hands enter the dryer.
