Our expert says: "One of the most energy-efficient on the market, EcoSlim DFES01W, DFES02BS and DFES04B require only 180 watts on the lowest setting! It doesn't exceed 65 db(A), whilst capable of producing dry times just 4 seconds slower than the popular Dyson V HU02, 5 seconds faster than the Warner Howard Airforce, yet only a second slower than the latter at the 180 watts setting, as per our in-house testing! Slim, adjustable, HEPA filtered clean air and vandal resistant these are perfect for places like cinemas/theatres, secondary schools, colleges, small to medium offices, pubs and restaurants. Our installers say these were easy to fit when installing them in YMCA hostels around the UK." Read our full review here
The world’s most energy efficient, good performing hand dryer?
Saving money and the planet are concerns for a lot of people. At the same time, making sure a product does what it is intended to do should be essential. This ticks all the boxes. You can adjust the motor speed and turn off the heater element yet still get a satisfactory dry time. Just 180W and hands are dried at the same rate more energy hungry units provide. Even with the heater element on and the speed turned up, this is one of the most energy efficient hand dryers that provides dry times nobody will be disappointed with.
Built to keep the peace
Loud noises can scare young children and vulnerable adults and keep them from using a hand dryer. Noise transfer into other rooms can be annoying too. This Quiet Mark approved hand dryer, making it one of the quietest in its class, is one of the friendliest for all to use. Cushioned blocks on the back of the hand dryer also prevent vibrations on walls, minimising further distractions.
Ultra slim profile
The amount of space available in a washroom can restrict product choices. At just 100mm depth EcoSlim DFES01W, DFES02BS and DFES04B take up hardly any space. This reduces the chances of bumping into it, or other people, in confined spaces. It also looks great as it doesn’t protrude too far from the wall. The sloped nature of the cover minimises the chances of someone leaving objects on top of it.
Advanced hygienic properties
Washroom cleanliness is essential. A high grade HEPA filter purifies the air taken into the hand dryer of microbes, pollen, dust mites and fungi. Nothing but clean air is blasted over the hands. The HEPA filter has a carbon filtering medium that neutralises odours and absorbs fumes and gases, getting rid of bad smells. Odour neutraliser’s can be purchased to further help rid the bathroom of unwanted aromas.
Robust and vandal resistant
This is a unit made for places where misuse could occur, keeping your hand dryers in service. The long-life motor is protected by a cover made from thick stainless steel. This is secured by antivandal screws. A solid steel back plate also provides firmness. The slim profile protects from unsavoury characters hanging from the unit.

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.
