Stainless Steel and Chrome Hand Dryers

Stainless steel is an excellent choice of material for a hand dryer in public or commercial environment as its long-life, heavy duty and anti-corrosive, so maintains its appearance and form in wet and harsh conditions. It is hygienic and easy to clean, stainless steel repels dirt, making it easy to wipe. It is the accepted material for use in medical and food preparation areas because it contains no cracks or crevices that can harbour germs. Thick stainless-steel covers on hand dryers are very difficult to damage and therefore keep the electronic parts well protected, graffiti is also easy to remove. Finally stainless steel provides a modern look that can be finished in either a satin/matt finish or a high polished chrome finish to match the accessories and décor of the washroom.

We have over 95 models of stainless steel and chrome hand dryers ranging from premium models backed by 20-year guarantees, to economically priced units from £64. All products have industry leading guarantees and are backed up by 90-day free returns. We have helpful resources throughout the website to help you narrow down to the perfect product.

Our top 3 Stainless Steel Hand Dryers

  1. The Steelforce - is one of the few ‘blade’ or ‘hands in’ stainless steel hand dryers available on the market.

It is an impressive dryer, quick, not too loud, and covered by a 6-year guarantee due to its long-life brushless motor.
  2. Machflow Brushless - a super-fast, super energy-efficient, stainless steel dryer with the longest guarantee on the market, an incredible 20 years! The dryer is certified carbon neutral! We love to promote products that give long-term value and reduce environmental impact. Available in polished chrome or a matt stainless finish.
  3. The Turboforce Junior Plus - has been one of our best-selling stainless-steel units over the last 5 years. Low-cost but super reliable and covered by a 3-year guarantee. Compact, fast and energy-efficient without excessive noise!

Which is a better finish for a hand dryer - Brushed Stainless Steel or Chrome?

There are 2 types of stainless-steel finish. A high polished chrome or shiny finish that you can see your reflection in or a brushed/matt finish that is slightly duller in appearance. Which finish you select is determined by the rest of the washroom design and accessories like taps and dispensers in place. Brushed stainless is considered easier to maintain as it doesn’t show fingerprints and marks so easily, however, we do apply anti-scratch and marking coatings to many of our polished chrome models to overcome this problem. As a rule of thumb high traffic locations, Industrial premises, schools, and medical and food preparation locations tend to go for brushed stainless steel, whereas lower-traffic hospitality locations like hotels, bars and restaurants tend to go for bright polished chrome. 

How does stainless steel differ from normal steel?

The simple answer is that normal steel will oxidize or rust and corrosion will occur when exposed to moisture and salt. Not great for a hand dryer, I am sure you will agree! Stainless steel contains a higher content of chromium which protects the iron content within the steel from oxidization, preserving the integrity of the material for longer. The price of stainless steel is higher than regular steel.

Grades of stainless-steel hand dryer

Stainless steels are classified into different series. Most hand dryer covers use 304 stainless. This is the most common type of stainless used as it offers impressive strength and corrosion resistance. It is typically used for applications where contact with food, chemicals, or fresh water is needed. It is well suited to welding and machining applications.

A lower-cost option sometimes used in cheaper hand dryers and washroom dispensers are grade 430. It doesn’t have the same anti-corrosive longevity so not so suited to long-term use in harsh environments and is far more likely to rust if the cleaner uses something more aggressive to clean it. All our dryers use 304 or better.

Finally, 314 ss is more expensive steel, sometimes used in some hand dryers. 314 ss is known as marine grade stainless steel. It has better resistance than 304 or 430 to chemicals and salts meaning it is less likely to be damaged by the use of certain cleaning products and in seaside locations where there is a higher salt content in the air. The Modric range of dryers all has this upgraded steel as does the Dyson Airblade tap and 9kj.
