Utilising the same blade style technology as the larger “hands in” type hand dryers, the relatively quiet DryForce PLUS uses a single outlet strip, which provides a concentrated 235MPH blade of air, literally scraping moisture off the hands. Unique to a “hands under” model, this moisture is sent straight into an easily serviceable water collection tray. Therefore, you are left with hands, walls and floors perfectly dry after each use. This is why it is a very popular choice. Running costs are kept low by an intelligent heating system, with increased energy only used when it is essential. These are perfect for locations with a medium amount of daily traffic, up to about 300 users a day. The quiet operation makes them also ideal for children and other vulnerable users.
We have found the DryForce PLUS to be a great choice for wheel chair users, as the water collection tray avoids splash back. The design also allows greater access to a blade style dryer. The MS society selected this type of dryer after trialling a number of alternatives. A window in the water tray allows you to see when it needs emptying. The automatic heating system is a clever energy saving addition with heat only added to the airflow when it sensors an environmental temperature below 24C. From a drying perspective, heat is only really needed for comfort, as the speed of the airflow is what really dries the hands. We do not recommend these for locations that are prone to vandalism, as several leverage points could be prone to misuse.
The DryForce PLUS includes all the features you would expect from a modern hand dryer such as fast dry time, quiet noise level and energy efficient, yet what makes it stand alone is the amount of mess that is reduced in the washroom from residual water on the walls and floors. The facility and domestic teams alike are going to love this one.
The body is a made from impact resistant, anti-bacterial ABS plastic available in a white or silver finish. It has a removable filter tray, the filter is designed to prevent dust and debris entering the motor and airflow cycle. A 600ml water catchment tray with level indicator is located on underside of the tray which is removable for servicing. The intelligent, energy saving, heater element senses the ambient air temperature and responds to maintain the heat in a range between 24 and 40°C. The overall rated power will therefore range between 550 and 1350 watts depending on the ambient conditions. Universal brush motor rotates at 20,000 rpm producing concentrated 235mph jet of air. The manufacturer dry times are stated as being 10-15 seconds and you may see this advertised for the same product under a different brand that has come out of the same factory. Our strict testing has shown the dry times to actually approx.19 seconds. Noise levels remain low at 73 dB(A) @ 1 metre.

Please note that blade hand dryers require different levels of clearance space in order to access the drip tray or other serviceable parts. Please consult the manufacturers' instructions.
We pride ourselves on strictly testing the majority of the hand dryers we sell to make sure you are getting true performance information. Where we haven't yet tested we will use the manufacturers guide.
In our experience only a handful of hand dryers can dry the hands satisfactory in around 10-12 seconds, and certainly none under 10 seconds.
