The Behind the Mirror hand dryer is highly specified by architects and designers who want to add a sophisticated addition to a washroom by concealing the unit behind mirrors or other elegant enclosures. This kind of design is also recommended for limited space washrooms. At just 10cms deep, it makes this job easy and effective. The warm air dryer has a very low noise output whilst maintaining a thorough dry, in a time that the user will not be disappointed with. It is made to withstand over 500 users a day and still give years of service due to its incredible motor life of 17,000 hours!
With a good drying performance at a low noise level of just 71dB, the moderately powerful airflow is quite deceiving, as the Behind the Mirror hand dryer dry time compares very well with some others on the market that are louder and more forceful. Even with a heater element as the main source of drying method, the energy consumption used will keep running costs low. This unit has a fantastic balance between noise levels, fast dry times and energy efficiency.
When the need for an enclosed hand dryer is your main priority, there really is nothing better than the Behind the Mirror. It is not only easy to install, it will provide respectable dry times, low running costs and low noise with a long-life motor that surpasses all others on the market in this class.
