How we are making it greener

The ThinAir Hand Dryer operates using only 950 watts or less, it was among the first hand dryers to have an Environmental Product Declaration, a third-party verified document that substantiates its environmental sustainability. ThinAir helps facilities qualify for several LEED® v4 Credits and Green Globes to meet corporate or government sustainability goals. 

How we are making it healthier

Excel Dryer's touch-free ThinAir Hand Dryer is a hygienic hand drying option due to its sensor-activated, hands-under design. The high-speed dryer completely dries hands in 8 seconds, thus inherently promoting hand hygiene as wet hands more readily transfer germs.

  • Hands-under design
  • Touch-free operation reduces restroom touchpoints
