Our expert says: “Building on the qualities of the original Elite hand dryer, the streamlined Elite MK 2 DF05M2PC and DF05M2W has improved its appearance and is more energy-efficient, yet stays robust and low noise, with a good drying performance. These have a formidable motor life and our in-house testing showed a dry time only 1 second slower than the popular Warner Howard Airforce. They’re perfect for locations like nursery and infant schools, senior schools/higher education, libraries, cinemas/theatres, restaurants, public toilets, hotels and office environments that can be affected by loud noises. Another easy-to-install model.”
Perfectly complements any washroom decoration
If your washroom is modern and sophisticated, the last thing you want is a hand dryer to let it all down. This hand dryer complements the most luxurious of bathrooms with its attractive design and profile.
Improved energy efficiency
Quiet hand dryers that rely on a heater element rather than the speed of the motor to dry, can be very energy hungry. This isn’t good for the environment or your energy bills. The Elite MK 2 DF05M2PC and DF05M2W are an exception to this and can produce a great drying experience at just 1kW rated power.
A motor life that exceeds most others
When you buy a hand dryer you want it to last. Most quality high traffic hand dryers have a motor life of 3000 – 4000 hours and give years of service. This has a motor life of 17,000 hours! Whatever your traffic level, this motor will keep running for years beyond most others on the market.
Quiet yet good performing
Some locations require low noise products. One reason is loud noises can scare children and vulnerable adults. Another is that the noise from one area of a building into another can be distracting. This Quiet Mark approved hand dryer is one of the quietest in its class that can still produce dry times that leaves no user disappointed.
The amount of space available in a washroom can restrict product choices. At just 100mm depth it takes 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 especially when mobility space is essential. The sloped nature of the cover minimises the chances of someone leaving objects on top of it.
Made to the highest standards
This UK-designed and built hand dyer is one of the most robust available. With both the cover and backplate being made of high-grade stainless steel, secured by anti-vandal screws, they are suitable for unforgiving environments.

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.
