Excel Launches the New ThinAir Hand Dryer

Posted on 11/9/2015 in Dryers
Earlier in October, Excel Dryer (maker of the leading Xlerator hand dryer) announced the launch of a new line of hand dryers.  The ThinAir hand dryers are efficient, surface-mounted dryers that protrude a mere 4 inches from the wall, making them perfect for ADA-compliant bathrooms.  Excel claims a 15 second dry time, so these are fast but not as fast as the Xlerator or other top dryers, but for a small, 4 inch deep dryer, that is great performance.  For more on the product or to purchase, click here.

From the Excel Dryer press release:

“The ThinAir Hand Dryer eliminates the need to recess the dryer into a restroom wall to achieve ADA compliance, which is beneficial for facilities with walls that are difficult to modify,” said Excel Dryer Vice President of Marketing, William Gagnon. “ThinAir has a lower cost of ownership than other hand dryers, and is easier to install making it a cost effective and affordable option to facilities looking for reliable performance and high efficiency.”

The ThinAir currently comes in only one case material (white Polymer with anti-microbial coating), but Excel plans for other, metal casings in the future.  ThinAir has adjustable speed/volume and comes with an option to turn the heating element off, allowing for a range of electric usage from 333 watts to 960 watts.  It also has a washable pre-filter and the list price is $500.  Our price is $330 and we have them ready to deliver.  Call us at 888-629-0685 or email us at [email protected] for more information.

It's been a while since we last made a post, but there hasn't been much news from the industry this summer. However, I was somewhat excited by this piece from atlasobscura.com called The Weird History of Hand Dryers Will Blow You Away. It's a very accurate and fair piece I thought, and I wanted to share the link with you here

A couple of weeks ago, the folks at NPR's All Things Considered noticed that more and more high speed hand dryers were appearing in bathrooms and thought it would make an interesting piece for the show.  The story ended up featuring Excel Dryer's Dennis Gagnon and the development of the Xlerator hand dryer, which was one of the first high speed hand dryers.
