Excel Dryer’s product line utilizes touch-free technology. Automatic activation promotes hand hygiene by permitting hand drying without the risk of cross-contamination by touching push-buttons that others may have touched with soiled hands.

Hand dryers are known to have hygienic benefits and be much more sanitary than other techniques of hand drying.

Excel Dryer recommends installing hand dryers in close proximity to sinks to make them as accessible as possible and encourage hand washing.
