This world-class business campus decided to install over 200 XLERATOR® Hand Dryers in their restrooms to meet their high standards for sustainability. This resulted in reduced energy use, a lower carbon footprint, cost savings, and more hygienic and efficient restrooms.
XLERATOR dries hands completely in 8 seconds and uses 80 percent less energy than conventional hand dryers. Saving 95 percent on cost when compared to paper towels, the XLERATOR also eliminates their labor, maintenance, and waste, while creating a more hygienic restroom environment. Excel Dryer is Building Green approved and helps facilities qualify for several LEED® credits. As all facilities are looking for green and cost savings initiatives, the installation accomplishes both.
The XLERATOReco® Hand Dryer is the greenest hand dryer in the world, helping to reduce carbon footprints globally. This touchless, high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryer uses new ‘no heat’ technology to dry hands in 12 seconds using only 500 watts, making it the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly hand dryer on the planet. With a maximum draw of four and a half amps, multiple XLERATOReco units can be installed on one 15- or 20-amp circuit, which significantly reduces installation time and costs.
Both the XLERATOR and the XLERATOReco Hand Dryer can be ordered with any of our complete line of accessories to customize your hand drying solution, including an optional 1.1” Noise Reduction Nozzle and HEPA Filtration System which has been proven to remove 99.999% of viruses from the airstream.
