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.

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.
