2nd year parts only
Used exclusively by the NEC – the UK’s largest exhibition centre – the Gorillo Ultra provides top-notch reliability, powerful performance and value for money in the most demanding environments. The NEC placed an order for 450 units. They were delivered in Spring 2016 and fitted soon afterwards. In their 1st year of operation, there has not been a single machine failure and the NEC Group and their users are having a very positive experience. The attached letter was written to Handy Dryers in 2016. Handy Dryers NEC project Post Installation Report
“...an excellent high-end product that dries hands remarkably well…”
– Daniel Boulger, NEC Group
Whipping moisture away from wet hands in 10 seconds or less, this dryer is one of our most efficient and powerful ‘hands-in’ models – it can handle heavy crowds with ease, and keeps customers flowing through busy bathrooms at a pace.
Costing just £15 per year to run, the Gorillo Ultra is one of the most economical dryers in the world. Not only does its speedy drying time reduce your overall energy bill, the Gorillo Ultra also has the option to run at a lower 550W by switching the heat element off and motor power to Low.
Awarded our Extra Quiet mark for operating at just 70 decibels during usage, this dryer is the ideal investment for noise-sensitive environments such as conference facilities, performance spaces and commercial office buildings.
Powerful, reliable and robust, the Gorillo Ultra is also one of the quietest hand dryers available today.
Harnessing the power of germicidal light rays, the Gorillo Ultra’s integrated UV-C lamps cast a sterilising glow over the hands as it dries them, rendering the majority of bacteria and other harmful organisms harmless.
What’s more, the Gorillo Ultra’s inbuilt HEPA filter catches hazardous germs and particles of human waste that float in the air of even the most carefully cleaned of washrooms, limiting the spread of harmful diseases.
A hygienic dryer that cleans itself from the inside, this model uses internal UV-C rays to sterilise the filter, maximising its ability to purify the air in your washroom.
Unlike a Dyson dryer, the Gorillo Ultra has been designed with a concealed water collection tank, enabling stagnant water to be collected without splashes or spillages.
Keeping germ-infested water locked away, the collection tank can be taken out and emptied easily, leaving the area hygienic and odour-free.
Gorillo blade dryer technology is remarkably different. It features double the usual number of infrared sensors, meaning it can detect hands from different directions simultaneously.
While conventional dryers can cut out or fail to respond, the Gorillo Ultra is laser-accurate. It will detect hands every time.
With speed adjustment, power and heat on/off switches, this is an affordable blade dryer that adapts to your every need.
The Gorillo Ultra is fitted with a high quality brushless motor. The main difference is that rather than use brushes, the brushless units use magnets to generate power. Brushless motors are longer lasting, generate no friction, produce less heat and provide better performance. Brushless units reduce maintenance and there is no need to replace worn brushes.
It looks the part
Available in sleek silver or white finishes, the Gorillo Ultra will provide an instant style update to washroom facilities, as well as impeccable drying performance.
Approachable and easy to use, the glowing LED countdown timer is engaged when the sensors are activated, enabling people to see when they can remove their hands and allowing others to take their turn.
The Gorillo Ultra has an ingress rating of IP24 so is suitable in areas within 600mm of sinks and other water sources.
This hand dryer comes with our highest level of quality assurance. Enjoy three years’ additional protection on top of our standard warranty, as well as free parts and labour in the first year after purchase.
