Berkeley, Ill.—April 20, 2016—World Dryer Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high-speed energy-efficient hand dryers, announces the Green Restaurant Association (GRA) has endorsed its VERDEdri™ high-speed hand dryer for meeting GRA’s rigorous environmental product endorsement standards. VERDEdri is extremely energy efficient, utilizing only 950 watts of power for a 12-second dry time. VERDEdri is the fifth World Dryer high-speed hand dryer to be endorsed by the GRA. World Dryer’s SMARTdri Series®, SLIMdri®, VMax® and Airforce high-speed, energy efficient hand dryers have also been endorsed by the association.
In addition to being high speed and energy efficient, VERDEdri is surface-mounted and compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). It features a HEPA filtration system for reducing contaminants in the air while drying and antimicrobial technology that extends the service life of the hand dryer. VERDEdri’s adjustable two-speed motor controls and global universal voltage accommodate any commercial washroom environment.
“More and more restaurants are realizing that going green not only saves them money, it also drives customer loyalty as consumers look to patronize environmentally responsible restaurants,” said Michael Oshman, CEO and Founder of the GRA. “We are pleased to once again be endorsing a World Dryer product that is intelligently designed to meet the industry’s highest environmental standards.”
The GRA provides endorsements for environmental products available in the restaurant industry. A restaurant needs 100 GreenPoints™ to become a Certified Green Restaurant®. If a restaurant installs World Dryers’ VERDEdri, it will earn up to 7.5 GreenPoints™ towards certification.
“We are honored that our all-in-one VERDEdri hand dryer received the endorsement from the Green Restaurant Association,” said Dan Storto, president, World Dryer. “VERDEdri offers restaurants and facilities of all types cost savings through energy efficiency, reduced use of paper towels and waste, enhanced hygiene through its HEPA filtration system and easy installation.”
