Performance Rating

  • 3.5 out of 5
    Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watt hours per dry of the hand dryer which is derived from the rated power and the time taken to dry the hands. We have used the figures based on either the manufacturer’s dry time, if yet to be in house tested or based on the in house testing dry time we have conducted. This will also be based on the most energy efficient setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed and/or heat.

    Watt hours per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99Wh = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99Wh = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99Wh = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99Wh = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99Wh = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99Wh = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99Wh = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99Wh = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99Wh = star rating 1
    • 10Wh and above = star rating 0.5
  • 2.0 out of 5
    Quiet Sound Level

    This rating is based on the manufacturers stated sound level, usually at 1m. Please see the section titled "how quiet is the." for more information and independent test results, which give a more accurate noise decibel level. These ratings will also be based on the low noise setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed. Therefore at full speed the hand dryer may not be quiet, however it may be adjustable to become quiet if this is required.

  • 2.5 out of 5
    Life Expectancy

    This rating is based on the number of motor life cycles (number of uses) the hand dryer, in theory, will last for. This is based on the motor life expectancy given to us in hours, from the manufacturer.

    The number of cycles (uses) has been calculated as follows:

    (Number of seconds in the hour / seconds per dry) x motor life hours

    For a more individualised longevity calculation based on your own usage numbers please use the life expectancy calculator on each product page.

    Number of motor life cycles:

    • 1,000,000 and over = star rating 5
    • 800,000 – 999,999 = star rating 4.5
    • 600,000 – 799,999 = star rating 4
    • 400,000 – 599,999 = star rating 3.5
    • 200,000 – 399,999 = star rating 3
    • 100,000 – 199,999 = star rating 2.5
    • 80,000 – 99,999 = star rating 2
    • 60,000 – 79,999 = star rating 1.5
    • 40,000 – 59,999 = star rating 1
    • 39,999 and under = star rating 0.5
  • 3.5 out of 5
    High Speed

    These ratings are based on the in house testing we have conducted regarding dry times. They show realistic comparisons of what to expect from each hand dryer. Please note that the manufacturer stated dry time is not always accurate when compared to the hand dryer being used in realistic conditions. The ratings are based on the hand dryer being placed at its high speed setting if it can be manually adjusted.

    Dry Speed (seconds):

    • 10 – 11 seconds = star rating 5
    • 12 – 13 seconds = star rating 4.5
    • 14 – 15 seconds = star rating 4
    • 16 – 17 seconds = star rating 3.5
    • 18 – 19 seconds = star rating 3
    • 20 – 21 seconds = star rating 2.5
    • 22 – 23 seconds = star rating 2
    • 24 – 25 seconds = star rating 1.5
    • 26 – 27 seconds = star rating 1
    • Over 28 seconds = star rating 0.5
  • 4.5 out of 5
    Vandal Resistance

    Some hand dryers would not be suitable for some locations where abuse may be likely such as a train station or night club. However the same hand dryer would be suitable for an office or school location. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating, the more suitable we would recommend for areas where abuse may be likely.

    Vandal Resistance score

    • Compact size = score 0.5              
    • Decreased blockage potential = score 0.5
    • Additional Backplate/ fixings strength = score 1
    • Anti-vandal extras = score 1
    • Metal / ABS = score 1    
    • Cover thickness 1.5mm or more = score 0.5        
    • No leverage points (design) = score 0.5


The Biodrier Biolite Hand Dryer is a compact, stylish, high speed eco hand dryer that offers excellent value. The Biodrier Biolite offers a level of reliability, energy efficiency and performance matched by few hand dryers in this price bracket.

Is the Biodrier Biolite a High Speed Hand Dryer?

The Biodrier Biolite falls within the high speed category, it has a compressed airflow that travels at 64m/s. This is not as fast as some high speed hand dryers, but 2-3 times the airspeed of a conventional warm air hand dryer. Realistically the Biodrier Biolite has a sub 20 second dry times in normal conditions. If speed is your absolute priority the blade hand dryers offer the fastest dry times and in the hands under category the TurboForce and Dyson V are the real flyers!

Is the Biodrier Biolite an Energy Efficient Hand Dryer?

Energy consumption is dictated by the dry speed and rated power of a hand dryer. Normal warm air hand dryers typically use a low power (0.24-0.3kw) motor and a high consumption (1.8 to 2kw) heater element; they have a rated power over 2kw with 30 second plus dry times. The Biodrier Biolite has a high speed 0.65kw motor and a highly eco-friendly heater element (0.25kw), the combination leads to a pleasant drying experience and a 75 to 85% energy and cost reduction.

How Quiet is the Biodrier Biolite Hand Dryer?

The specification states 76 dBA based on noise chamber tests, which is relatively quiet for a high speed hand dryer. We have not tested this unit in a realistic environment, (with surfaces that amplify noise) but it is clear that the noise level is above 76 dBA in situ, having said that it is certainly quieter than many fast hand dryers.
