LIVONIA, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A response to customer preferences, coupled with progressive thinking, produced industry-leading technology recently as American Dryer rolled out its mid-line Advantage™ series hand and hair dryers.
“Consequently, Advantage now boasts the industry's best overall mid-line dryer with low cost and the best features of any dryer in its class. For example, Advantage uses only 1400 watts, compared to the DR series' 2300.”
The company has created a 21st-century hand and hair dryer series to offer customers an attractive, very affordable alternative to the company's fastest and most powerful dryers. The Advantage series provides 25-second dry times and quieter operation that are ideal for applications including many schools and healthcare facilities, as well as a range of other restrooms. Cost-effectiveness, economical design, universal voltage, and energy efficiency are among the Advantage series' other chief benefits.
“Advantage is the only truly modern-design mid-line dryer on the market, and it directly responds to some customers' preferences for quieter, more compact and effective hand dryers,” American Dryer Vice President of Sales and Technology Michael Robert said. “Older technology is no longer acceptable for discerning customers, no matter what their price point. This is a well-rounded, high-performing dryer series that is the best choice for a considerable number of applications.”
With this new series, American Dryer provides facilities with the option to reduce sound while still offering an attractive 25-second dry time. In many settings reduced sound and less air velocity on the hands can be especially important features.
Unlike competitors' dryers, and in sync with all new American Dryer models, the Advantage series features the compact design that architects and contractors prefer. The Advantage dryer is also available as a hair dryer, a popular option for gyms, fitness centers and other settings where patrons may wash their hair.
Advantage is made in the United States and includes universal voltage, from 100–240 volts, 50/60Hz. The dryer configures itself to your voltage, making installation easier. The updated dryer also offers many of the benefits as American Dryer's eXtremeAir series, including the same efficient microprocessor-controlled sensor. Each Advantage dryer is compatible with all of eXtremeAir's ADA-compliant accessories (Wall Guard, Recess Kit and Adapter Plate). It offers a fixed nozzle and a five-year warranty.
Notably, the Advantage series serves as the 21st-century replacement for American Dryer's traditional DR series. First manufactured in 1988, the DR series was updated in the 1990s. American Dryer, committed to offering a full line of dryers for all customer preferences, developed Advantage to incorporate new technologies rather than simply tweaking DR's traditional design. In recent years, updating conventional models or simply continuing to offer older technology has been typical industry practice for mid-market dryers as attention has shifted to high-end options. According to Robert, “Consequently, Advantage now boasts the industry's best overall mid-line dryer with low cost and the best features of any dryer in its class. For example, Advantage uses only 1400 watts, compared to the DR series' 2300.”
American Dryer, Inc., established in 1952, offers the most comprehensive line of hand dryers made in the USA. Its hand dryers offer best-in-class performance. Its new eXtremeAir eXt series is the most energy-efficient, high-speed hand dryer with industry-leading 540 watt power consumption. The patented design of the eXtremeAir gXt series makes it the most compact high-speed hand dryer available. American Dryers are sold in over 30 countries. American Dryer's manufacturing facilities are in Livonia, Michigan. More information at www.americandryer.com.
