To Excel Dryer, leading is nothing new. After all, their signature product, the XLERATOR® Hand Dryer, created the high-speed, energy-efficient product category, and set a new standard for performance, reliability and customer satisfaction. Excel Dryer has again set a new industry standard, this time, by offering an improved product with 50% longer life and an industry-leading 7-year warranty, without increasing the list price.

Effective November 1, 2019, all XLERATOR® and XLERATOReco® Hand Dryers are warrantied for seven years; this covers all parts, and most importantly, the motor. Many other hand dryers on the market offer a lesser, more restrictive warranty, typically 1–5 years. With XLERATOR’s extended product life and unrivaled warranty, the best just got better.

The expanded and enhanced product line—featuring the EPD & HPD Certified XLERATOR®, XLERATOReco® and ThinAir® Hand Dryers—facilitates the design of the very best hand drying solution for any restroom environment. By making some of the most popular features standard, Excel Dryer improves the user experience by providing smarter products that are easier to maintain. Enhanced standard features include adjustable speed and sound controls, adjustable heat settings, an externally visible Service LED and multi-voltage options available in 110V-120V or 208V-277V volts in 50 or 60 hertz, accommodating global electrical needs.

The new XLERATORsync® Hand Dryer by Excel Dryer, offered through the D|13 Group, is the future of commercial restrooms and the most hygienic, sustainable and cost-effective way to wash and dry hands. A masterpiece of form and function, the system seamlessly fuses no-touch, high efficiency fixtures on the sink deck allowing the user to wash and dry hands hygienically, conveniently and effectively all in one place. This provides the ultimate user experience while the customizable sink design options allow architects and designers to completely transform the aesthetic of any restroom.

Long committed to creating innovative, environmentally responsible products, this forward-thinking company places just as much importance on substantiating claims as educating buyers and specifiers on how to avoid falling victim to “greenwashing.” The hand dryer market, like so many others, is inundated with knockoff products and manufacturers making unsubstantiated claims that their product is the “best” or “most environmentally friendly”. To combat these, and in an effort to level the playing field, Excel Dryer initiated the process to create Product Category Rules (PCR) for the hand dryer industry with UL Environment (a business division of Underwriters’ Laboratories).

Excel Dryer’s main purpose for creating the PCR was to establish industry-consensus parameters for testing a product’s performance and environmental impacts. The result of these efforts set a precedent, as the first global PCR for any industry and the first standard within the hand dryer industry. Using PCR guidelines, the company’s three signature products—the XLERATOR, XLERATOReco and ThinAir Hand Dryers—were the industry’s first to receive Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). Essentially ushering in an age of transparency, this groundbreaking achievement has allowed architects, specifiers and buyers to make more informed decisions.

With this same commitment to sustainability, Excel Dryer strives to inspire the next generation; the team has developed a green curriculum for students across the country, facilitating hands-on experience in field research, energy auditing and project management. In addition, Excel Dryer’s products help facilities qualify for several certifications to achieve corporate sustainability goals, including the most LEED® v4 Credits in the industry.

When so many others are taking their manufacturing overseas, Excel Dryer is capably leading the industry from East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, and as evidenced in their recent and planned expansion, has firmly planted their roots. All that will change, however, are the sustainable offerings and product enhancements. Excel Dryer is a dichotomy. On the one hand, they are on the cutting edge of technology. On the other, they maintain old-fashioned principles and are thriving despite them.
