XLERATOR® is the original, patented high-speed energy efficient hand dryer that dries hands completely in 10 – 15 seconds, three times faster than conventional dryers, while using 80% less energy. XLERATOR® hand dryers represent a 95% cost savings over paper towels and eliminates their maintenance and waste while creating a more hygienic restroom environment. In addition, XLERATOR® is GreenSpec® listed and helps qualify for several LEED® credits, making it a smart choice for the restroom by saving time, money and the environment.

As part of its collaboration with Green Apple, Excel Dryer has designed a Green Apple XLERATOR® (XL-SI-1.1) custom cover hand dryer. The Green Apple XLERATOR® features the new Certified HEPA Filtration System making it the most hygienic, sustainable and cost effective way to dry students' hands. It is also available with many other XLERATOR® accessories including a noise reduction nozzle, antimicrobial wall guards and the XChanger® paper towel dispenser retrofit kit. A portion of the proceeds from each Green Apple XLERATOR® sold will be donated to Center for Green Schools' programs, which are aimed at transforming schools into sustainable places to learn and play.
