EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Excel Dryer has upgraded to electrostatic HEPA filtration, which is an optional feature for their XLERATOR® hand dryer models and is now available in its newly expanded, surface-mounted, ADA-compliant ThinAir® Hand Dryer product line. ThinAir is a high-efficiency model that includes all the standard enhanced features—including adjustable sound, speed and heat controls—while also protruding less than four inches from the wall to adhere to ADA regulations. ThinAir dries hands in 14 seconds1, operates on 950 watts and helps facilities qualify for several LEED® Credits and WELL® Points.
The upgraded HEPA filtration system uses electrostatically charged media, which allows for increased airflow and attracts particles—including bacteria and viruses—to the filter media, removing them from the air.
“We have always promoted the importance of proper hand hygiene, including thoroughly washing and drying hands, and we will continue to do so. The COVID-19 pandemic emphasized and reminded the world of the importance of clean and dry hands,” said William Gagnon, executive vice president and COO at Excel Dryer. “We’re excited to now offer this improved system to all our touchless hand drying solutions.”
Post-pandemic, clean hands are a global focus and the filtration of bacteria and viruses from the air is paramount to help improve the indoor air quality and environment. Excel Dryer’s full line of hand drying solutions with electrostatic HEPA filtration helps facilities accomplish both.
