World Dryer Goes "Hands-In" with Introduction of VMax Vertical Hand Dryer

World Dryer Expands Portfolio of Rapid Hand Dry Solutions to Meet Needs of Today’s Diverse Facilities


Berkeley, Ill.—―World Dryer Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high-speed energy efficient hand dryers, has announced the availability of VMax™, the first hands-in vertical hand dryer in the company’s expanding portfolio of rapid-dry hand dryers. VMax’s innovative design offers a 25 percent wider hand drying cavity opening than other vertical hand dryers on the market today, providing a true touch-free drying experience. Dry time is only 10 to 12 seconds while using just 17 percent of the energy traditional hand dryers require. VMax also features a HEPA filter system with an odor neutralizing tablet for a fresher restroom environment, quiet operation for sound sensitive areas and an attached power cord that makes installation simple and easy.


“VMax is the perfect complement to our comprehensive portfolio of automatic high-speed hand dryers, offering more flexibility in selecting a hand dryer that best meets the individual needs of every facility,” said Dan Storto, president of World Dryer. “VMax incorporates into a vertical design the advanced features of our high-speed hand dryers that allow facility managers to save money while reducing their environmental impact.”


Key benefits of the VMax include:

•        Quiet operation to reduce distractions in sound-sensitive areas

•        A fresher, more hygienic environment due to a HEPA filter system and odor neutralizing tablet

•        Polarized plug for easy installation; no hard-wire required

•        Antimicrobial technology for improved sanitation and longer service life

•        Surface mounted hand dryer meets ADA accessibility standards

•        IP33 ingress protection against water


VMax features antimicrobial technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and fungus, and extends the dryer’s service life. It’s also fully automatic with a generous hand drying cavity opening 25 percent wider than other competitive vertical hand dryers.


“VMax was designed with a wider drying cavity opening so users can comfortably dry their hands without fear of touching surfaces,” Storto said.
