When the project is a commercial washroom, the decisions are many—not the least of which is the question of hand-drying solutions. Do you choose to install a paper towel dispenser or a hand dryer? And, if the latter, which manufacturer and model is best?
Whether concerns are around lowering your client’s carbon footprint, earning more LEED® credits or minimizing the long-term cost of building ownership, the ultimate choice seems clear: the XLERATOR® Hand Dryer from Excel Dryer.
XLERATOR reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by up to 75% when compared to traditional hand dryers and even 100% recycled paper towels. This means by choosing XLERATOR over paper, you’re projecting a statement to your customers/clients about your preference for environmental sustainability. The XLERATOR Hand Dryer is also far more cost-effective than paper towels; specifically, it’s confirmed to provide a 95% savings versus paper towels while eliminating their associated labor, maintenance, and waste. This is significant since a client is always eager to hear about opportunities to save. When you outline the trajectory of savings from using XLERATOR—the product that created the high-speed, energy-efficient category of hand dryers—instead of paper towels, you are sure to become a favorite.
If you’re not already completely sold by XLERATOR’s ability to sustain the environment and save costs, then perhaps you’d become interested after learning about its unparalleled customizability. Choosing a high-efficiency hand dryer from Excel Dryer’s expanded and enhanced product line—featuring the XLERATOR®, XLERATOReco®, and ThinAir® Hand Dryers—means that you’ll have the most options and complete line of accessories in the industry. Gone are the days of having a machine that does not blend in with the surroundings.
So, when you choose not only a hand dryer, but one from Excel Dryer’s high-efficiency product line, you can have a washroom that coordinates well, is better for the environment, and saves costs. The only tough question you really have to consider is, which model will you choose?
