Zoo Hand Dryers

The Most Popular Hand Dryer Choices for Zoos

Zoos are moving to hand dryers fast. Zoos are some of the most frequent buyers of our hand dryers at ProDryers.com. The most popular hand dryer choices for zoos are the Xlerator hand dryer by Excel Dryer, the Dyson Airblade, the ExtremeAir hand dryer by American Dryer, or one of the many top choices by World Dryer such as the SmartDri, SlimDri, or the vandal resistant, durable Airmax. These hand dryers are all proven to withstand heavy traffic in environments such as zoos. All are high speed and all are vandal resistant and built tough to last. The energy efficiency and huge savings in paper towel costs are just a couple of reasons why zoos are moving towards these green hand drying machines. The goal of high traffic restrooms is to get customers in and out with no hassles; restroom lines need to keep moving rapidly. Eliminating unhygienic paper towel mess, and providing a clean and impressive restroom experience is essential in a zoo environment. Call 888-50-DRYER to learn more about each green, energy efficient, high speed hand dryer so the best decision can be made for your zoo.
