Our new Xlerator Hand Dryer Resource Page

We have been so busy lately.  One of our goals is to make our online shopping experience quick and easy.  We have started to design all of our pages with our shoppers first in mind.  Our XLERATOR® hand dryer home page has been redesigned to visually display the eco vs. the standard heated version.  It provides total clarity to our shoppers and so far, it has received extremely positive feedback.  And for those shoppers than need to learn a little more about the XLERATOR® before buying, we have added a learn more button at the bottom of our page and to many other pages.  This learn more button is hard to miss and it serves as a quick, but complete educational and resource guide for the XLERATOR® and ThinAir®.

Sound Level Comparison With Hand Dryers

Sound levels per brand

            Each of the top hand dryer brands we sell at ProDryers is unique with its features and also unique depending on the consumer’s needs.  Noise level is one of the features that we are here to compare.  Always remember the general rule (which is majority of the time) the louder the dryer, the faster it will dry hands.  Keep in mind the average hand dryer is about 80 dB.  Our top brands include Dyson, Excel, American Dryer, Palmer Fixture, World Dryer, and more.  We will start with the loudest hand dryers and work our way to the quietest.  All of the sound ratings are directly from the manufacturer.  If you are unsure just how the ratings work or how loud they actually sound, follow this link How Hand Dryer Sound and Noise is Measured.  The Dyson Airblade which is one of the most powerful hand dryers on the market is also one of the louder dryers at 85 dB; with an air speed of 400 M.P.H. this makes sense.  The new Dyson Airblade models will operate with a reduction of the unpleasant tones but offer 420 MPH as the motor has been improved.  The SLIMdri by World Dryer also rates at 80-85 dB.  Next would be the World Dryer SMARTdri which can also reach 85 dB, however with an adjustable motor speed this can be toned down to 73 dB or lower.  One of our most popular items the Xlerator which is pre-installed with the 1.1 noise reduction nozzle has a sound level between 77-82 dB.  American Dryer’s line the Extreme Air which includes the GXT and EXT come standard at 83 dB but have the possibility to lower the motor speed and get to the 60’s decibel range.  The ExtremeAir is perfect for nearly every situation.  The Extreme Air can handle high volume traffic from facilities such as zoos, stadiums, venues, parks, and more, while the motor can easily adjust down for a quieter operation suitable for offices, schools with small children, restaurants, and even libraries.  The Xlerator hand dryer also offers a (add-on for about $30) kit that will enable the adjustment of the motor which yields a quieter experience.   Finally our products from Palmer Fixture, the storm hand dryers:  The BluStorm is rated at 80 dB, the uniquely designed iStorm at 67 dB, and the EcoStorm with a very minimal 64 dB.  All of these dryers each provide something unique to the consumer.  In the end, don’t get too caught up on the technical dB ratings as each is measured by the manufacturer.  Call us so we can explain in easy terms which hand dryers would be best for each specific facility.  Call 888-50-Dryer to talk to our hand dryer experts now and we’ll educate you on sound levels and how they truly compare to one another side by side.  We’ll throw out all the technical data and get to the truth as we truly compare each unit against one another.  If you are near Livonia, MI and would like to come and test each unit out, stop by our office and visit our demo room!

Saving Schools Money with Hand Dryers, Extreme Air EXT7

One of the best school hand dryers we sell at ProDryers.com is the Extreme Air EXT7. The EXT7 is a high speed, energy efficient hand dryer, but uses no heating element. It’s not a “cool air hand dryer” as it still operates around 90 degrees. It just does not heat up over 130 degrees like many hand dryers using a heating element. It’s a misunderstanding that hand dryers need hot air to dry hands effectively. Using no heating element allows facilities such as schools to save the maximum level of energy, the maximum level of installation costs (we’ll get to that later…), resulting in the ultimate total savings in already tight school budgets.

Why does the EXT7 ExtremeAir cost less to install than hand dryers with heating elements? A heating element uses much more energy forcing a dedicated line per hand dryer. Three (3) EXT7 Extreme Air hand dryers can be installed per line, which cuts heavily on installation costs. The ExtremeAir also has universal, auto-configuring voltage. The unit will take signals from the electrical and auto-configure everything from voltage, amps, and htz. This eliminates installation mistakes or worse yet, purchasing mistakes of the incorrect voltage.

The EXT7 EXTREMEAIR is perfect for all age groups from college students, high school, middle school, elementary, and even smaller children in pre-school or daycare centers. Why? First of all, no heat makes it less intimidating to smaller children. But most importantly, the EXT7 Extreme Air comes equipped with an adjustable motor. It defaults at a high speed 10 second dry time. Smaller children may find it a touch intimidating and thus, the motor can be adjusted down to a much softer hand drying experience. It’s kind of like an old school radio dial which controls the motor by percentage. Even at the lowest setting, the EXT7 still dries hands at an acceptable rate and operates much faster than old traditional hand dryers. At 69 decibels, the EXT version of the ExtremeAir hand dryer would allow two people to have a normal conversation and still hear each other.

The ExtremeAir is USA made and offers maximum quality with a maximum cost savings and is among the top selling school hand dryers at ProDryers.com. Buy it at the absolute lowest price possible with free shipping. Call 888-50DRYER or 888-503-7937 for a quote! Visit www.ProDryers.com for more information.

Paper Towels Can’t Compare to Hand Dryers Armed with HEPA Filters to Kill Bacteria

Washing hands in a public restroom and bacteria has been associated with one another for years.  Numerous studies have been conducted, and the debate is ongoing.  Which is more sanitary, a hand dryer or paper towel?  Fact: Most of the studies favoring paper towels have been funded by the paper towel industry.  The fact is: the paper towel industry is on the ropes and naturally fighting back hard.  Fact: the hand dryers used in most (possibly all) studies, were not of the new hand dryer breed.  New technology used in hand dryers such as the Xlerator, Dyson Airblade, Extreme Air, SlimDri, iStorm, Jet Towel, and more range from electrical costs such as $35.00 per year or 18 cents per 1,000 uses to operate.  Each hand dryer manufacturer has its own claim on energy savings, but one can’t deny, when it comes to hygiene and sanitation, some of the newer hand dryer models use HEPA filtration which eliminates 99.97% of all bacteria in the air before the air is used to dry hands.  The Dyson Airblade and iStorm are equipped with HEPA filtration systems while units such as the Xlerator hand dryer can be retrofit with a HEPA filter kit as needed.  The same can’t be said for paper as bacteria actually lives well and breeds in damp used paper towel scattered across the restroom floors.  Worse yet, bacteria and germs are proven to live even on dry paper; recycled paper actually hosts more bacteria and germs than virgin paper towels.  See www.handdryersvspapertowels.com for more eye-opening proof on hand dryers vs. paper towels.

Studies have proven that unused paper towel hold bacteria. In the American Journal of Infection Control, researchers found these bacteria and claim it could be transferred to hands after washing.  Other studies have found that a certain kind of bacteria that has been found in paper towel have been associated with eye, lung and blood infections. A bacillus bacterium which was also found in unused paper towel is known to produce toxins which can lead to food poisoning.   Although these bacteria may not affect those that are healthy, those with weakened immune systems needing extra caution may find it important to stay away from paper towel.

Not only are there proven studies that bacteria is found in almost all unused paper towel, the fact stands that bacteria spreads far greater when on damp paper found scattered around the restroom. How many times have you walked into a restroom and seen paper towel scattered across the floor, on the counter tops, and thrown all around the trash can with a few pieces actually making into the garbage can?   So aside from paper towels being full of bacteria before actual use, they are even more harmful after they are used and tossed on the floor making the restroom unhygienic and unappealing.

A clean and sterile bathroom is a key factor in keeping your employees and customers happy.  Keeping a clean hygienic restroom is an area overlooked by many business owners, yet doing something so simple will not only make your restroom cleaner, it will also save you loads of cash from monthly paper towel costs while saving energy, trees, land-fill space, and other precious resources.

The only area paper towel is still a fairly decent choice is near the restroom doors where people may wish to use paper to exit without making contact with the door handle.  For this reason, ProDryers offers the ExitTowel system by Palmer Fixture.  The Exit Towel is much smaller than a standard paper towel and offers a cost effective way for opening doors on the way out of a restroom.  Stop wasting money today, call 888-50-DRYER or visit www.ProDryers.com and get the best prices on hygienic hand dryers with HEPA filters that eliminate 99.97% of all bacteria in the air.  No paper towel on earth can top that!
