Change is a constant—yesterday’s hand drying solution may no longer be a viable option today. Fortunately for facilities with outdated offerings for hand drying, Excel Dryer knows how to implement hand dryer retrofits safely, efficiently and easily for beneficial change.
Reaping the Benefits
There are a variety of reasons why you may want to upgrade to high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers. First, they provide a more sustainable choice than paper towels and a more efficient choice than traditional dryers. Take Excel Dryer’s XLERATOR Hand Dryer as an example. It can dry hands much faster than conventional hand dryers while consuming 80 percent less energy. It is also the only hand dryer to be BuildingGreen Approved and helps facilities qualify for multiple LEED credits by the U.S. Green Building Council.
A peer reviewed ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment of the XLERATOR confirmed it reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by 50–70 percent when compared to traditional hand dryers and paper towels. The costly environmental impact of paper towels is felt throughout their entire lifespan, beginning with production. It begins when the paper is harvested from trees, transported on trucks and put through a pulping process. The towels are then used in a restroom and delivered to a landfill.
Additionally, the benefits over paper towels go beyond sustainability. XLERATORs also represent a typical 95 percent cost savings when compared to paper towels by reducing the need for labor and maintenance while eliminating waste.
Excel Dryer Retrofit Solutions
The XChanger Combo Kit is a retrofittable conversion kit which will enable you to update your existing paper towel dispenser and waste receptacle to an XLERATOR or XLERATOReco Hand Dryer. It is installed over the footprint of common paper towel dispenser/waste receptacles designed to match their dimensions so there is little or no wall repair required once installed.
