The Xlerator Hand Dryer from Excel Dryers combines fast, efficient performance with significant cost savings and low environmental impact.
Using patented technology to deliver a high-speed stream of air through a contoured nozzle, the Xlerator dries hands in 10 to 15 seconds, as much as three times faster than conventional hand dryers. The unit’s design eliminates water droplets and vapor completely, and is hands- free. There is no need to touch it at all, removing any chance of coming in contact with a contaminated surface. People actually enjoy using it.
The Xlerator is designed to function in older buildings as well as the latest architectural wonder, and uses 80% less energy than traditional hand dryers. The unit is so efficient that customers report a savings of 90% to 95% over the cost of using paper towels.
Lower costs are not the only benefits, however. The Xlerator also boasts a lower impact on the environment than its conventional rivals or the decidedly low tech paper towel. In a peer-reviewed Life Cycle Assessment, when compared to a conventional hand dryer or paper towels (both virgin and recycled products), the Xlerator was found to have a 50% to 75% lower environmental impact.
The Xlerator has been recognized by a number of environmental organizations for its low carbon footprint. It was the first hand dryer recognized with a listing in Greenspec, a database of green products for the construction industry. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) awards credits in two categories for its use. And Environmental Building News, after an independent test, named it one of their Top Ten Products of 2002.
The Xlerator excels indeed, bringing low cost, high performance and environmentally friendly functionality to the marketplace.
