The brushed (satin) chrome cover option in the L-Series SLIMdri hand dryer is no longer being manufactured by the World Dryer Corporation. Please see instead the L-973A as its replacement.  The L-973A looks identical to the L-971A, but with a brushed (satin) stainless steel cover instead of chrome plating on aluminumThe World Dryer L-Series SLIMdri hand dryer is one of the fastest, most energy efficient hand dryer in its class. At only 3.9” thick, this ultra compact and stylish design can be surface-mounted and still meet ADA compliance for 4” protrusion into a primary walk-way or traffic corridor. With no need to recess this unit or buy a separate recess kit, installation is much less expensive and much less difficult. Another unique feature of the Model L is the hidden switch that allows the owner the option of having the heating element activate with the motor or remain off during the drying cycle. With this one variable, the owner can customize dry time, comfort, & energy consumption to fit any specific application. With the heating element set to automatically activate, the Model L is capable of taking the user’s hands from wet to dry in 60% less time than leading competitive surface-mounted ADA dryers). Durable and vandal-resistant, the Model L-973 SLIMdri has a stainless steel cover. The cover is then brushed to a satin finish. Coated with a patented anti-microbial, anti-bacterial additive (called SteriTouch™), the cover is resistant to the growth of harmful organisms such as bacteria, mold, and fungi. The universal voltage, brush-type motor operates just as efficiently when connected to 110V-120V, 208V, or 220V-240V. At an impressive speed of 13,000 RPM, it is capable of producing an air velocity of 12,320 linear feet per minute or 140 mile per hour (70 CFM air volume) and a temperature increase of 48°F at hand level (approx. 4 in. below nozzles). Both the motor and the 400 watt heating element (if set by the owner in the ON position) are activated automatically by an infrared sensor. Dry time varies on the variable settings, but the length of the run time is determined by the user. As soon as the user's hands are removed from under the unit, the drying cycle is terminated. This unit has a water ingress rating of IP23. Mounting instructions and warranty information are included. The World SLIMdri intelligently combines the high performance your customers demand in a compact package that ADA requires, all without the hassle or expense that a recessed unit necessitates.
