G-Force Junior Hand Dryer (polished chrome)

GFJ03

Applications: Bars, Light use (51 to 100 uses per day), limited space washrooms, Office, Restaurant

The G-force Junior has all the build quality you would expect from a European crafted hand dryer, whilst being the smallest high velocity hand dryer in the World! Dry times of this good-looking hand dryer are better than some much more well-known brands on the market that take up additional wall space.  At 1kg and being at just under the size of an A5 piece of paper, customers continuously buy this hand dryer when space is at a premium such as those tight, one cubical bathrooms.  They have also been popular as a great addition to the home. At only 10cm in depth, which makes it ADA disabled washroom compliant, it is suitable for a wide range of users.   Even with a heated airflow the total energy consumption is just 900W.  Small size, small energy use, small running costs, big performance!

A tight rounded air nozzle allows for air speeds of up to 155MPH, whilst producing a noise level that is relatively quiet. The motor life is suitable for locations that will receive up to 100 uses a day on average but will give years of life in locations like restaurants, porter cabins and small offices.  To assist in removing 99.97% of bacteria from the intake of air, an optional HEPA filter is available.  This ensures that after the air is drawn in, cleaner air is forced out of the air outlet over the hands.

Packing a real punch, this hand dryer may be small in stature but it is certainly mighty in performance. The G-force Junior creates a high velocity, energy efficient drying experience allowing these highly sort after attributes to be available in the tightest spaces and most compact of washrooms.

Technical Description

Available in a white or polished chrome solid, impact resistant ABS cover with black nylon back plate and under carriage. Single rounded compressed air outlet creates high speed air flow. Universal brush motor rated at 400W operating at 28,000 rpm produces a 155mph air speed, warmed by a 500W absorption heater. The manufacturer dry times are stated as being 15 - 20 seconds and you may see this advertised for the same product under a different brand that has come out of the same factory. Our strict testing has shown the dry times to not actually be too far off at 21 seconds. Infra-red sensor with automatic hand detection and adjustable range. Expected universal brush life of 500 hours and motor life of 1000 continuous hours. Optional HEPA filter traps 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3 microns.  Manufacturers stated sound level is 70dB.

Performance Rating

  • Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watts per dry of the hand dryer which is derived from the rated power and the time taken to dry the hands. We have used the figures based on either the manufacturer’s dry time, if yet to be in house tested or based on the in house testing dry time we have conducted. This will also be based on the most energy efficient setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed and/or heat.

    Watts per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99W = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99W = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99W = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99W = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99W = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99W = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99W = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99W = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99W = star rating 1
    • 10W and above = star rating 0.5
    3.0 out of 5
  • Quiet Sound Level

    This rating is based on the manufacturers stated sound level, usually at 1m. Please see the section titled "how quiet is the." for more information and independent test results, which give a more accurate noise decibel level. These ratings will also be based on the low noise setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed. Therefore at full speed the hand dryer may not be quiet, however it may be adjustable to become quiet if this is required.

    Decibels (dB):

    • Up to 68dB = star rating 5
    • 69 – 70dB = star rating 4.5
    • 71 – 72dB = star rating 4
    • 73 – 74dB = star rating 3.5
    • 75 – 76dB = star rating 3
    • 77 – 78dB = star rating 2.5
    • 79 – 80dB = star rating 2
    • 81 – 82dB = star rating 1.5
    • 83 – 84dB = star rating 1
    3.0 out of 5
  • Life Expectancy

    This rating is based on the number of motor life cycles (number of uses) the hand dryer, in theory, will last for. This is based on the motor life expectancy given to us in hours, from the manufacturer.

    The number of cycles (uses) has been calculated as follows:

    (Number of seconds in the hour / seconds per dry) x motor life hours

    For a more individualised longevity calculation based on your own usage numbers please use the life expectancy calculator on each product page.

    Number of motor life cycles:

    • 1,000,000 and over = star rating 5
    • 800,000 – 999,999 = star rating 4.5
    • 600,000 – 799,999 = star rating 4
    • 400,000 – 599,999 = star rating 3.5
    • 200,000 – 399,999 = star rating 3
    • 100,000 – 199,999 = star rating 2.5
    • 80,000 – 99,999 = star rating 2
    • 60,000 – 79,999 = star rating 1.5
    • 40,000 – 59,999 = star rating 1
    • 39,999 and under = star rating 0.5
    2.5 out of 5
  • High Speed

    These ratings are based on the in house testing we have conducted regarding dry times. They show realistic comparisons of what to expect from each hand dryer. Please note that the manufacturer stated dry time is not always accurate when compared to the hand dryer being used in realistic conditions. The ratings are based on the hand dryer being placed at its high speed setting if it can be manually adjusted.

    Dry Speed (seconds):

    • 10 – 11 seconds = star rating 5
    • 12 – 13 seconds = star rating 4.5
    • 14 – 15 seconds = star rating 4
    • 16 – 17 seconds = star rating 3.5
    • 18 – 19 seconds = star rating 3
    • 20 – 21 seconds = star rating 2.5
    • 22 – 23 seconds = star rating 2
    • 24 – 25 seconds = star rating 1.5
    • 26 – 27 seconds = star rating 1
    • Over 28 seconds = star rating 0.5
    3.0 out of 5
  • Vandal Resistance

    Some hand dryers would not be suitable for some locations where abuse may be likely such as a train station or night club. However the same hand dryer would be suitable for an office or school location. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating, the more suitable we would recommend for areas where abuse may be likely.

    Vandal Resistance score

    • Compact size = score 0.5              
    • Decreased blockage potential = score 0.5
    • Additional Backplate/ fixings strength = score 1
    • Anti-vandal extras = score 1
    • Metal / ABS = score 1    
    • Cover thickness 1.5mm or more = score 0.5        
    • No leverage points (design) = score 0.5
    1.5 out of 5
  • Smallest high speed hand dryer in the world - H238 x W156 x D99mm – half the width of a sheet of A4 paper!
  • Warm air but still energy efficient with comsumption per dry of just 5.3 watts based on in-house testing dry times, costing around 63p per 1000 dries.
  • For a budget unit this gives some higher priced hand dryers a run for their money in performance – will dry your hands in around 20-25 seconds (in-house tested)
  • A very respectable 2 year guarantee for a budget hand dryer
  • High velocity hand dryer with a relatively low noise level of just 70dbA (manufacturer stated)
  • CE, RoHs and WEEE approved
  • IP23

What is the life expectancy of the G-Force Junior?

So how long will this dryer last?

Hand dryers can have 2 types of motor which are:

  • A digital brushless motor
  • A universal brush motor

In theory, universal brush motors do not last as long as digital brushless motors and require the brushes to be changed periodically.  They also vary in their lifespan.  Digital motors however do cost more to repair should they fail at any point.  There are variations in the lifespans of both universal brushed motors and digital motors.

The best way to choose what is right for you is to look at your facility and the amount of use each hand dryer is expected to get.  This way it can be determined if a brushed motor hand dryer would be most suitable for you or whether investing in a digital brushless motor would be more cost effective.

How vandal resistant is the G-Force Junior?

Depending upon the location, hand dryers can be damaged through vandalism. This includes being leveraged off the wall, damaging the outer casing and putting foreign objects into the openings. Locations this is likely to occur include pubs, nightclubs, transport facilities such as train stations, schools, stadiums, arenas and unattended public toilets to name a few.

The G-Force Junior is compact and has no easy leverage points, however it is just an ABS cover and is built to keep the price to a minimum so we would suggest it would be fine for most areas but maybe somewhere prone to vandalism needs to look for something more resistant.

How suitable is the G-Force Junior for disabled users?

There are a few points to consider when choosing a hand dryer with disabled users in mind.  These include:

  • Wheelchair access with regard to users being able to position their hands correctly 
  • The amount of moisture that will be left on the floor after drying if units are to be used by people physically impaired
  • The noise level of some high speed hand dryers may be too loud for some users, such as users with autism, multiple sclerosis etc.

Disabled areas often double up as baby changing facilities, so considerations include leaving extra space for double buggies, noise levels for children etc.

The G-Force Junior hand dryer has the following features that may negate these concerns:

  • “Hands under” type unit creating more accessibility and a wider range of hand positions         
  • A very compact size, which takes up a very minimum amount of space in a wash room
  • Relatively low noise levels

What’s our expert view and brand comparison of the G-Force Junior hand dryer?

As one of the smallest hand dryers in the world, this unit can be placed in a variety of locations where larger products would not fit.  We have had customers who like the idea that they could place these in individual cubicles in the washroom to add privacy to their clients washroom experience.

We wouldn’t think that the G-Force Junior would be ideal for heavy traffic locations due to the life expectancy of the motor, however you would expect a lot of years useage from low traffic locations such as small offices, restaurants etc.

The G-Force Junior, by design would not stand up to abuse in areas prone to vandalism, however its hard ABS cover provides adequate protection from normal daily use.

What extra hygiene aspects does the G-Force Junior have?

Washing hands correctly is the best way to ensure high levels of hand hygiene.  Making sure hands are completely dry is the next important aspect of hand hygiene.

Most modern hand dryers have standard hygienic properties such as fast dry times and touch free sensors to activate. However for added peace of mind some models have enhanced hygienic properties.

The G-Force Junior is touch free activated, however this hand dryer doesn’t have any other enhanced hygienic properties.

How quiet is the G-Force Junior?

Manufacturers typically measure sound levels in terms of decibels dB(A) @ a 1 metre distance in a sound proof chamber. This measurement does not take into account the increase in noise when hands are positioned under/in the dryer or when the sound bounces off walls. Where possible we supply manufacturer's stated dB(A), and 2 independent tests which are more reflective of 'real conditions’.

Manufacturer stated

70dB(A)

Hands under in an anechoic chamber (sound proof)

N/A

Hands under in a normal room*

N/A

*represents maximum “real life” volume

Equivalent Examples:
Normal Conversation                      50 - 70dB(A)
Vacuum Cleaner                             70dB(A)
Busy Traffic / Alarm clock               80dB(A)
Lawn Mower / Chainsaw                 90dB(A)
*various internet sources

Please click here to read our guide to help understand what the perceived decibel level above would be equivalent to.

It is worth noting that if your noise concern relates to the noise carrying into different areas of the building then pitch will be just as relevant as sound output (loudness). Higher frequency pitches will not travel through walls as easily as low frequency pitches for example. Please contact usdirectly to discuss your specific need.

Does it actually do what the manufacturer states? Independent testing information

At Intelligent Hand Dryers UK, our ethos is to bring you as much open, honest and reliable information as possible so you can make the most suitable and informed purchase.

We endeavour to include independently obtained results and in house testing, as well as manufacturer's specifications. This gives a true reflection of dry time performance, noise and energy efficiency of each hand dryer.

Noise level testing was conducted at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and a leading independent testing facility.

We also provide in house video testing to demonstrate dry performance. This gives a visual demonstration in “real use” as opposed to using methodical scientific protocols.  The approximate dry time using this method was set when no spots of water could be seen on a paper towel after drying the hands.  This is over and above what is required to be classed as a “hygienic dry” which requires 95% of the hands to be dry after using the dryer.
