The 5 Most Popular Commercial Hand Dryers of 2017
As the year quickly comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to reflect back on 2017 — what was hot, what wasn’t, and what we can look forward to in the months to come. Here at Allied, we’ve definitely seen a shift in the dryer market over the course of 2017, with more advanced, high-tech, and hands-off models taking the industry by storm.
For proof, just look at our most popular commercial hand dryers from this year:
It doesn’t get more high-tech than this. A slim, barely-there electric hand dryer that combines washing and drying into one, the Airblade Tap dispenses either water or air with just a movement of the hand. All sensor activated, it’s sleek, slim, and has no difficult buttons or knobs to deal with — just fast, efficient, convenient washing and drying in seconds.
Don’t mistake the name; there are no paper towels involved here. A sleek, silver, sensor-activated unit, the Mitsubishi delivers lightning-fast drying times without a single touch of a button. Though it offers both low- and high-speed options, the noise results are the same: a barely noticeable whir. Its carlike design adds visual interest and a modern flair to any facility.
Another high-speed model, the Aerix is a top-tier no-touch dryer with built-in antimicrobials. Boasting a 12-second maximum drying time, low energy usage, and barely-there noise disturbance, it’s an in-demand model across all sectors and industries. The Aerix even filters and cleans the air before pumping it back out, leaving your restroom more sanitary than before.
4. VMAX V-639A
This space-age commercial hand dryer is extra hygienic, thanks to its larger-than-average hands-free openings, anti-microbial additives, and built-in draining system. With a polarized wall plug, the VMAX is also easy to install and requires no hard-wiring whatsoever. You can have it up and running almost as fast as it can dry your hands!
One of Dyson’s quietest models, the Airblade AB14 is the most energy-efficient commercial hand dryers on the market today. With a digital motor, a built-in HEPA filter, and no heating element, it represents a new generation of dryers that can actually help the environment (and your energy bills) in the long haul.
