At only 3.9” thick, the World Dryer Q-Series VERDEdri is not only compact and stylish but 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 Q is the hidden switch that allows the owner the option of two motor speeds. With this one variable, the owner can customize dry time, sound level, & energy consumption to fit any specific application. The VERDEdri comes equipped with replaceable HEPA filter, removing 99.97% of air contaminants of 0.3 microns or larger. The air returned to the room is actually cleaner than the air taken in. Durable and vandal-resistant, the Q-Series has a die-cast aluminum, chrome-plated back/wall mounting plate. Specific to the Model Q-162A VERDEdri, the cover is made of die-cast aluminum finished with high-gloss black epoxy paint that has a patented anti-microbial, anti-bacterial additive called SteriTouch blended into the paint. This additive helps reduce the growth of harmful organisms such as bacteria, mold, and fungi. Two tamper-proof screws securely attach the cover to the wall mounting plate. The universal voltage, brush-type motor operates just as efficiently when connected to110V/120V, 208V, or 220V/240V. Motor brushes are replaceable, further extending the life of this already durable unit. At an remarkable speed of 31,000 RPM, it is capable of producing an air velocity of 19,800 linear feet per minute or 225 mile per hour (64 CFM air volume) and a temperature increase of 60°F at hand level (approx. 4 in. below nozzles). Both the motor and the NiChrome wire heating element are touchlessly activated by an infrared sensor. Dry time varies on the motor speed selected, 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 stopped. Extremely efficient, the Q-162A utilizes only 950 Watts and has an impressive water ingress rating of IP24. Mounting instructions and warranty information are included. The World VERDEdri intelligently combines the high performance your customers demand, energy efficiency you demand, and the compact size that ADA requires, all without the hassle or expense that a recessed unit necessitates.
