Our expert says: "The Slimforce DFLIF02 may be small in stature but it certainly packs a punch whilst being very energy-efficient, good performing and low cost to run. Our in-house test showed it did take 6 secs longer to dry than the popular Dyson V but 3 seconds quicker than the Warner Howard Airforce. One of the easiest to install also."
The Dryflow® Slimforce is an attractive and compact automatic hand dryer with a narrow 10cm trajectory, making it ADA compliant and ideal when space is limited. The product is recommended for locations that will receive a maximum of 100 uses a day, which would typically make them suitable for most schools or workplace environments but not regularly/heavily used public washrooms.
A concentrated airflow delivers fast dry times, similar to those of other popular models on the market. Fully dried hands each and every time, it satisfies all expectations with no user leaving disappointed.
This unit runs at just 1kW with the heating element activated, so it is much more energy efficient than traditional models which have a rated power from 2 to 2.5kW with much slower dry times. You can also switch the heater element off via an internal on / off swtich, allowing this to run at just 0.6kW rated power.
The working components are protected from water and dust to a high level (IP23) giving the product extra durability.
A one-piece weld free cover, fixed by 2 vandal proof screws make it suitable for environments which may be prone to misuse. A filter is included to clean the air taken into the dryer of particles. Its noise levels are similar to hand dryers on the market of the same price range.
Solid one-piece AISI 304 stainless steel cover with anti-vandal screws available in a brushed satin finish. Rated power of between 600W - 1000W (internal on/off heater switch). A universal brush motor rotates at 30,000 rpm, producing a 223MPH airspeed concentrated through a round outlet. The manufacturer dry times are stated as being around 12 seconds. A blue LED light shines on the hands during activation to guide the user to the airflow.

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.
