An Update on ProDryers, the Hand Dryer Guru

An Update on ProDryers:

It’s been a while since we posted to our blog. We’ve been extremely busy! Some of you may know, but ProDryers is actually a Category Five Technologies, INC. online shopping experience as well as several other high quality niche market online sites. Our 2nd most popular online shopping experience which is growing fast is ProDryers and ProDrinkingFountains are both experiencing heavy growth as we have partnered with a few new trusted manufacturers that fit our space perfectly.

We have strengthened our existing partnership with Elkay, the #1 drinking fountain manufacturer in the U.S., and since doubled Elkay monthly sales with a commitment to stocking Elkay to offer our customers rock bottom prices with fast free shipping. Elkay also manufacturers sinks, faucets, and more. Our prices are extremely difficult to beat along with our well-trained sales and customer service teams. Elkay recently visited and provided extensive training so our team is ready to handle even the toughest questions. We expect to potentially double our sales yet again in 2016.

We partnered with Sloan earlier this year which was always a long-term goal of ours. Sloan brings us the ability to offer our customers the industry’s leading flushometers, faucets, sinks, toilets, urinals and more. We have also taken on a commitment to stocking with Sloan as an initial step towards becoming a leading national supplier for Sloan. Our Sloan sales have literally sky rocketed fast as our customer base has responded well to the new partnership. Our Sloan prices are extremely difficult to beat as well.

For the above two reasons, we have been forced to open up a 4th local warehouse. We also have national fulfillment centers to pull from as we carry a massive inventory of hand dryers, restroom accessories, drinking fountains and more for a small business. This enable us to truly provide extremely low pricing to our customers.

Although we have not been as vocal on the blog lately, we are moving fast and hard at work to provide or customers with elite shopping experiences from start to finish. As always, our goal is to earn customers for life, not just 1 sale. We exist because of our customers and thank each and every one of them sincerely for the loyalty they have shown us over the years.

Call us at 888-503-7937 to discuss any hand dryers, baby changing stations, commercial restroom accessories and any need for commercial plumbing products such as drinking fountains, sinks, flush valves, faucets, toilets, urinals, and more.

Evolution of the hand dryer and the Dyson Airblade

Evolution of Hand Dryers and the Dyson Airblade

It’s quite amazing to witness the evolving of technology.  We’ve seen it over the years with many devices from TV’s, phones, computers, cars, and even hand dryers.  I remember when I was a kid; my parents had cable TV for the first time.  It had about 18 stations in total and the huge bubble-like tube TV displayed much less than high definition resolution.  I played with the Atari game system, and then Intelivision, Colecovision, Sega, and Nintendo were soon born.  My family experienced our first microwave.  The cordless phone was invented, and then followed by the pager, and a gigantic cell phone that cost many dollars per minute.  Windows 3.1 was the latest and greatest in operating systems and then it seems like overnight the internet was born and I sent my very first email and used the dial up modem with AOL.  Today it seems like light years have passed by with technology even though 20 years ago feels like yesterday.

With the evolution of technology, hand dryers have also made leaps in design, performance and durability.  The World Dryer A-series push-button hand dryer was a leader in the industry 15 plus years ago.  You’d find them in schools, rest areas, McDonald’s restaurants and so much more.  You’ll still see these machines from time to time as it really was built tough.  However, an example of how a company has changed the concept of a hand dryer can be analyzed with Dyson.   The first of the Dyson hand dryers has proven to be a major success.  The Dyson Airblade AB04 hand dryer was designed to utilize air knife technology, (an industrial technology often used to strip liquids from solids) to dry hands at 400 MPH drying both sides of hands (completely) simultaneously in 12 seconds while providing HEPA filtered air that eliminates 99.97% of all bacteria before the air is blown onto the hands making the Dyson Airblade the most hygienic hand dryer of its time.

After years of success and heavy testing, the new Dyson v4 digital motor was born and new units such as the Dyson Airblade V AB12, and the Dyson Airblade Tap AB09, AB10, and AB11 were born.  The development of the Dyson digital V4 motor – one of the world’s smallest 1400W motors, has enabled Dyson engineers to build a hand dryer that protrudes just four inches from the wall (ADA compliant) while still drying hands in just 12 seconds.  Other hand dryers have been designed at 4 inches from the wall, but they lack in power and speed where the Airblade V remains as fast, effective 12 second dry time.  Dyson has remained true to one of many design features, allowing users to dry hands in the most hygienic method.  All Dyson Airblade hand dryers utilize HEPA filtration; the Airblade V is equipped with two HEPA filters.  Users never have to rub hands together; studies prove the process of rubbing hands together brings dead skin cells to the surface, which promotes the spreading of bacteria.  Studies also suggest that damp hands are 1,000 times more responsible for spreading bacteria compared to dry hands.  All Dyson Airblade hand dryers dry hands completely in 12 seconds.

The Dyson Airblade Tap could be the most innovative commercial restroom product created to date.   One of the largest issues with restrooms is wet floors.  The Dyson Airblade Tap completely solves this issue as the user can wash and dry hands from the same device right at the sink.  The amazing Dyson v4 digital motor allows for dry hands in just 14 seconds, plus it still uses HEPA filtration to eliminate 99.97% of all bacteria in the air before it’s blown onto the hands.   Most other hand drying methods are expensive to run.  Paper towels need restocking and disposal.  Most other hand dryers are slow, and many use a heating element, so they’re energy-hungry.  The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run per year than other hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels.   And of course, there are no separate taps to buy.

Commercial Restroom Design and Why it Matters

Commercial restroom design is much more important than most business owners realize.  The restroom is a direct reflection of the quality of the business itself.  Customers and clientele will appreciate a clean, hygienic, well-designed restroom.  Some customers won’t think much of it.  However, if the restroom is not designed well or worse yet, if the restroom is unhygienic, it can present a negative impact resulting in the loss of repeat business.  Even the “best food in town” type restaurants can lose repeat business and positive word of mouth when the restrooms are less than tolerable.  All restrooms should be designed with a clean, sanitary and convenient theme.  A business owner should consider the audience, and then consider every possible scenario that can occur in a restroom and build in solutions to each.  For example, all restaurants should have a baby changing station in the restroom.  A unit such as the Koala KB200 is just 189.78.  The price of the changing station is well worth the cost compared with providing comfort and convenience to a mother looking to change her baby’s diaper.  In addition to designing for functionality, convenience, and hygiene, the audience is very important.  For example, the pure basics of sex; men and women display very different behavior in a restroom.

Hand Dryers

Hand Dryers and More at the Best Prices!

We all know women go to the bathroom in groups.  From night clubs to bar and grills, the ladies room is an important place of conversation.  The USA made American Dryer Extreme Air hand dryer and all other current American Dryer hand dryers are designed smaller than most other hand dryers.  In fact the American Dryer hand dryers like the GXT9, EXT7, advantage and GX series are all 43% smaller than most other hand dryers.  Smaller hand dryers in the restroom leave more room for nice décor and mirrors, plus, the smaller hand dryer is perfect for female hands.  The most important feature of the Extreme Air is the ability to adjust the motor down which brings the sound to a lower decibel level.  At the lowest setting (which is about what the American Dryer Advantage operates at), a decibel level of 69 and about a 25 second dry time can be achieved.  This allows for women to have the natural conversations without the need to shout.  Other hand dryers are often too powerful for conversation to take place and results to shouting and frustration.  The women’s’ restroom could benefit from a tampon dispenser, especially in night clubs, theme parks, hotels, venues, or anywhere that this convenience may be needed.  All ladies bathrooms should be designed to fit the needs of every female.

Men are a whole different animal!  Not many men want to have a conversation in the restroom.  In fact, many men don’t even wash their hands after using a public restroom.  Sad but true!  One product that could attract men to use is the new Dyson Airblade Tap.   This new, innovative technology is an automatic faucet and hand dryer in one so hands can be washed and dried right from the sink.  Most men love technology so Dyson Airblade hand dryers are often a great solution.  Hand dryers such as the Xlerator hand dryer are super tough, durable, reliable, and most important, powerful!  The Xlerator hand dryer will dry even the largest hands in 10-15 second with is powerful 300 MPH blast of air.  It’s also 100% manufactured in the United States and qualifies for the Buy American Act.  Noise in a men’s restroom is perfectly acceptable (in most cases) and most men will love the fast dry time.

In settings such as night clubs, vandalism of mirrors may be a concern.  Consider the new “Perfect Reflection” by shale-Inland.  This new mirror is anti-graffiti mirror with a 2 or optional 4 layer design.  A protective film is simply peeled off when the mirror is vandalized.  A 4 layer mirror would be like buying 5 mirrors.   The cost savings achieved is undeniable.  Tough, durable hand dryers like the Xlerator should be used.  Paper towel should be eliminated completely in this case to remove the threat of stuffed toilets by vandals.  Powerful automatic flush valves should be used with a thin style toilet paper.  Even if vandals stuff the toilets, as soon as they walk away, the automatic valve will flush the thin paper down the toilet.

As you can see, upfront design of a restroom is just as important as the design of the rest of the business.  Every angle and scenario should be thought of before issues arise.  The design should allow for flexibility so high costs are not required to maintain the restrooms.  Design it right and the business will benefit significantly.

Fighting Bacteria in Commercial Restrooms, HEPA Hand Dryers

Fighting Restroom Bacteria with the Hepa Filter Hand Dryer

Everyday people become more aware of how easily bacteria can be spread.  Technologies are always improving to help combat bacteria that lead to disease.  A very infamous sickness every year is influenza which is an airborne illness.  In restroom areas fighting pathogens such as bacteria is especially important.  The first and most simple way to do this is by washing your hands thoroughly but after that of course, you have to dry them.  Hand dryers are superior to bacteria filled recycled paper towels, however just the hand dryer having a large particle filter may not be good enough.  Three of the top hand dryer manufacturers, Dyson, Excel, and Palmer Fixture have implemented HEPA filters in their top models.  HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air; as these hand dryers draw in the air to dry hands the HEPA filter eliminates 99.97% of air particles.  These airborne particles may very well contain harmful bacteria.  Medical applications often use or are required to use HEPA filters showing their strength in helping fight dangerous pathogens like airborne illnesses.  Food plants, restaurants, hotels and more also often request HEPA filtered hand dryers specific situations.  The Dyson Airblade, Dyson Airblade V, Dyson Airblade Tap, and Palmer Fixture iStorm all have a pre-installed HEPA filter.  The Xlerator hand dryer also gives the option of a HEPA filter.  These dryers do more than providing clean, pure air; they also dry your hand quickly and efficiently while saving energy.  Each of these models dry hands in just 10-15 seconds!  The Dyson airblade uses the new v4 digital motor which moves air at 420 MPH making it the most powerful and hygienic hand dryer line on the market.  If there was ever concern about hand dryers not being sanitary and taking too long to dry hands, these high speed HEPA equipped dryers are the solution.  No more bacteria filled air and waiting too long for your hands to be dry!   Consider these high speed, HEPA filtered, fast hand dryers:

All of the models are in stock and ship free and fast! Contact our customer service team at 734-466-9767 for more information regarding the HEPA filter and our hand dryers.

Daily Cleaning Tips for the Dyson Airblade

The cleaning of the Dyson Airblade is a quick process that will help ensure you are obtaining the best use of your hand dryer. It will also help prolong the life of your machine. Cleaning your Dyson Airblade should be added to the list of daily restroom maintenance items. To clean you will want to use a soft cloth and a cleaner that is non-abrasive. Majority of professional cleaners can be safely used on the Airblade. Products to avoid include: alcohol-acid mixes, alcohol, solvent and oil based, bleach mixes, or foaming ingredients. If you are unsure if the cleaning product you are using is safe then test on an indistinct area first. Clean the Airblade with this soft cloth and cleaner, paying special attention to the air slots and any of the areas that have seams. You will also want to clean the bottom of the dryer where the air inlet is, this will help you get the most efficiency out of the HEPA filter that comes pre-installed. Lastly you want to clean the floor around and beneath the machine to eliminate even more bacteria. These steps will help your Dyson Airblade perform at the maximum level while adding to its lifetime.
