An energy efficient dryer uses power wisely

Sounds simple, but the less power a hand dryer needs to draw on when activated, the more energy efficient it is.

The majority of our models use between 1.0 and 1.4kW. Our low energy hand dryers are quickly becoming an industry standard. When compared to other models like the Dyson Airblade which uses 1.6kW, you can see why. Our dryers use up to 35% less energy than many competitors.

In comparison to the drying time of standard dryers which can be anything between 20 and 45 seconds. Your energy bills will be lighter than air.

Low energy hand dryers with sensitive technology

Speed and power consumption aren’t the only attributes considered vital for dryer eco-efficiency. Instant detection of hands being placed under or inside the dryer is important when considering how to make your facilities more energy efficient.

Wasting energy will hit you where it hurts. If your hand dryers fail to respond quickly, frustrated users are more likely to stop and restart the motor more than once.

Our Gorillo blade dryer technology has been specifically developed to avoid using excess energy consumption. This avoids energy bills racking up. The Gorillo features double the usual number of infrared sensors, meaning it can detect hands from different directions simultaneously. The Gorillo has Eco features for speed adjustment, power and heat on/off switches. You can set this blade hand dryer to be both more economical and energy efficient at the flick of a switch.
