'First hygienic, environmentally aware hand-drier'

26 August 2010

Biodrier, said to be an environmentally friendly, hygienic, cost-effective range of high-speed hand-driers is available and follows 18 months' extensive customer trials in a range of premises

The range of premises in which the driers are available include public sector buildings, schools, offices, factories, retail and some very busy airports.

The range, comprising four products (the Executive, the Business, the Junior, and Eco models) have been introduced to fill a gap in the away-from-home market by combining extreme energy efficiency, personal hygiene and fast hand-drying with ''lowest cost in use''.

The days of traditional unhygienic hand driers are over as the Biodrier Executive model delivers 100% pure bacteria free air onto the hands.

Gone too are power guzzling driers (the Biodriers run on 1/3 less power per hand dry) a mere 850 watts for a 10 second hand dry. To date the lowest powered unit available runs on 1800 watts for a 20 second dry. Traditional hand-driers take 40 seconds or more, depending on operational condition, for a single dry.

Biodriers are 90% more power efficient than traditional hand-driers by using heat from their own motors to warm the air and by blowing it through a series of ducts to build resistance that heats it.

A Biodrier, used 200 times per day, costs only £20.56 per year in energy against £251.53 for a conventional hand drier - a saving of 1380Kw at £0.1994/ Kw.

While available for sale, most customers prefer a three or five year service inclusive leasing or rental agreement. Free installation is available by Biodrier’s nationwide technical team. The Company is so confident in its products it gives a 3-year full replacement and 5-year parts warranty.

With the rental/leasing prices around 40% less expensive than any others and the guarantee of 36 or 60 equal monthly payments with no increases, it is no surprise that it is winning some major government and business contracts.

Biodriers are said to be quiet, fast and easy to use. With a hygienic touch-free operation you place your hands into the recess and immediately both sides are covered with powerful gusts of high-speed air. In 10 seconds your hands are dry and on removal the unit stops immediately. Fast drying minimises queues experienced with traditional slow machines.

Unlike paper hand towels there are no waste disposal requirements or janitor costs of refilling dispensers. Their cost in use is the lowest of any form of hand drying system. Biodriers are 100% recyclable - so no landfill charges.
