The XA48SS classic hand dryer from World Dryer is the most iconic hand dryer design in the UK. Tried and trusted for over 30 years in the UK, XA48SS classic hand dryers have set the standard until new high speed, low energy models became available. The World Dryer XA48SS Classic in a polished stainless steel is the workhorse of the hand dryer market. It is the most recognisable and iconic range of hand dryers on the UK market. Tried and trusted for more than 60 years, you will find units that are more than 25 years old all over the UK, so you really can just 'fit and forget' them. For extra peace of mind the XA48SS hand dryer is supported by a full range of parts and a 5 year on-site warranty. Ideal for public washrooms with high traffic like bus stations, shopping centres and city centre public toilets.

Elegant Stainless Steel Chrome finish

The World Dryer classic series is available in a beautiful, heavy duty polished stainless steel finish with Chromium plated solid steel nozzle. The finish makes the hand dryer suitable for a prestigious washroom fit-out at a hotel, office or casino. However the styling may now be a little dated for a contemporary washroom.

Touch free hand dryer

High quality, touch-free sensor operation prevents cross contamination in busy washrooms and prevents unnecessary energy wastage.
