Performance Rating

  • 3.0 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
  • 1.5 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.

  • 5.0 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
  • 4.0 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
  • 3.0 out of 5
    Enhanced Hygiene

    Hand dryers are a hygienic method of drying the hands. The better the dry, the less the risk of carrying germs on wet hands. Some hand dryers however have gone that little bit further to enhance the hygienic aspects of the hand dryer. These ratings are based on these extra factors that have been added to aid the hygienic properties.

  • 2.0 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 Executive is a fantastic looking blade hand dryer that offers high level features at an affordable price. We would suggest this hand dryer for mid traffic level locations (200-400 uses per day) where looks and image are all important. 

It has a brushless motor adding to its long lasting capabilities and energy efficiency. An optional inclusion is the Antibacterial UV which eradicates offensive odour, bacteria, mould and viruses.  There is also the optional Intelligent Motor Diagnosis which gives feedback on time and when planned maintenance needs to be carried out.

The LED display on top of the dryer counts down the hand drying time and indicates when the drip tray and HEPA filter need to be changed.

How fast drying is the Biodrier Executive hand dryer?

  • The Manufacturer states a dry time of under 10 seconds

We will shortly post and in house video demonstration and independent test results according to a standardised protocol. For now we can say this is undoubtedly a quick drying hand dryer, the manufacturer's suggestion of under 10 seconds is not realistic as it is not the fastest blade hand dryer we have used and we are yet to come across any sub 10 second dryer. The Biodrier Executive will not doubt be around the 15 second mark.

All blade hand dryers tend to have genuinely good drying times as the way the hands are dried is logically more effective i.e dual sided drying, working with gravity. Although we have not subjected the Biodrier Executive to independent testing as yet it is clearly a high performance hand dryer with air speeds of 150 m/s from both sides. It will dry your hands in around 15 seconds (no dryer in reality consistently does 10 as claimed) and is rated between 0.7kW and 1kW so the energy consumption is probably very close to the Dyson Airblade, as the few seconds you lose in drying time is made up for by lower overall power.

What are the running costs of a Biodrier Executive hand dryer?

We would anticipate that based on a 12p per kw of electricity unit cost, the Biodrier Executive hand dryer would cost approximately 0.06p (£0.0006) per average drying cycle, so 1000 dries could be achieved for approximately 60p.

Compared with:

  • Paper towels based on 2.5 towels at 0.4p each per dry = £10 per 1000 dries
  • Standard warm air hand dryer use approx 25 watts per dry and cost(£0.003) = £3.00 per 1000 dries.

Carbon emissions (per 1000 dries)

  • Biodrier Executive hand dryer = 2.71kg/Co2 
  • Paper towels = 28kg/Co2
  • Standard warm air hand dryer = 13.5kg/Co2

Paper towels are based on 15.5gms/Co2 per dry and hand dryers are based on Carbon Trusts measurement of 1 kw = 0.54 kg/Co2

How quiet is the Biodrier Executive hand dryer?

Hand dryer sound levels are typically measured in terms of decibels dB(A) @ a 1 metre distance in a sound proof chamber. This measurement does not take into account the increase in noise when hands are positioned under the dryer or when the sound bounces off walls. Where possible we supply manufacturer's stated dB(A), and 2 independent tests which are more reflective of 'real conditions. Biodrier Executive hand dryer has not yet been tested independently.

  • Hands under in a normal room (represents max expected real life volume) = n/a
  • Hands under in a anechoic chamber (sound proof) - n/a
  • Manufacturer stated 58 - 80 dB(A)

The Biodrier Executive has a Noise Absorption Module inside the unit which minimises air friction and mechanical sounds from the motor. This plays a large part in keeping the overall noise of the unit down. On top of this there is an adjustable motor which allows you to reduce the noise level even further, down to just 58dba @ 1mtr

How Hygienic is the Biodrier Executive Hand Dryer?

There is hand hygiene and general washroom cleanliness to consider. The Biodrier Executive hand dryer has a decent drainage system, albeit not as serviceable as the Mitsubishi Jet Towel or D-Flow blade hand dryers but this helps to maintain splash free washrooms. In terms of hand hygiene it has followed Dyson's lead and incorporated a HEPA 13 filter which is 99.97% effective against bacteria and viruses down to 0.3 microns. Anti-bacterial plastics and touch free operation enhance the Biodrier Executive hygiene credentials further. It also has been certified by the HACCP as a food-safe hand drying device. This dryer will shut off after 22,000 cycles if the filter isn't changed which could be a little irritating in some high traffic locations but at least ensures that hygiene standards are maintained.

  • Gel Block – Air is infused with Organic Gel Blocks which moisturises hands, freshens the surrounding air of the room and sanitizes the hand dryer unit all at once.·        
  • New Feature – Antibacterial UV - Transforming the washroom environment by eradicating all offensive odours, eliminating bacteria, and controlling infection.·        
  • Drip Tray - With the Biodrier Executive the water is collected in a drip tray in the bottom of the unit, keeping the surrounding area clean and safe and prolonging the life of the dryer. The drip tray has an intelligent sensor which informs you when it needs to be emptied.·        
  • Outer Shell – This has an Ionpure® anti-microbial coating.

How easy is the Biodrier Executive hand dryer to install? 

Blade hand dryers take a little longer than hands under type dryers to install due to their physical size, the connection point in some instances may also require moving but this dryer is fairly lightweight and simple to install.

How suitable is the Biodrier Executive for disabled users?

We generally do not recommend blade style hand dryers for disabled users, the reason being that they are less accessible from a range of angles particularly for wheelchair users. The Biodrier Executive has a reasonably large opening for the hands to go between and it is also tilted to make access more comfortable.

What is the Intelligent Motor Diagnosis of the Biodrier Executive?

By simply pointing the a hand set at the dryer the Diagnostic Reader will be able to tell you:

  1. How many operations the dryer has preformed
  2. When the filters should be replaced (ideal for planned maintenance)
  3. Total run time
  4. How many people have used the dryer (Ideal for auditing foot flow)
