The World Dryer Model A has been the standard hand dryer in the industry for years and may be the most reliable hand dryer available. Built like a tank, it is made to withstand use, abuse, and vandalism.The cast iron cover is literally bullet proof. (World Dryer has the flattened bullet to prove it!)




At 200 CFMs (Cubic Feet of air per Minute) this dryer takes about 30 seconds to dry hands - faster than most.  For the same dryer in a high-speed version we recommend the World Dryer AirMax hand dryerIf noise is an issue, stick with the Model A.

World stone cover options (Automatic, surface mounted units only.)
  • White: XA5-674, XA54-674
  • These thermoset polymer cover options have been discontinued and we have only a few of these left -  on special.  Please see the hand dryer deals page at the bottom of the categories menu to the left to order.  
  • For more information on cover options, please see our hand dryer cover option guide

Activation:
Push button or automatic (we recommend automatic)


Cover Material:

Cast iron with porcelain enamel – white. This is the number one choice for vandalism -  bullet-proof and the enamel finish is virtually scratch proof
.  We are currently running a special on some units with the limited edition "VS" cast iron covers.  We actually like this cover more than the regular cast iron covers.  The only difference is a slightly different shape and the labels are affixed in different places.  Otherwise these hand dryers are the exact same as the regular Model A hand dryers and the covers are interchangeable.  We have these in surface mount, automatic (XA5-974 VS) but not the surface mount push button (A5-974) and both push button and automatic for the recess mounted units (RA5-Q974 VS, XRA5-Q974 VS)

 
Stainless steel – either brushed or polished.  This is also very vandal resistant (particularly the brushed version, which hides small scratches) Stainless is also beautiful, elegant and the easiest material to keep clean.  

Stamped Steel – white. Steel is very durable and a great alternative to cast iron as it is lighter and less expensive. 

WorldStone – thermoset polymer - DISCONTINUED with limited availabilty.  This polymer was developed for the automotive and aerospace industry where lightweight was required in high temperature settings.  It is very durable and light scratches can be buffed out.  In the long run, this material could look better than steel. It will never rust! available in white, surface mount, automatic only. 


Electrical:  2300 watts with a choice of 115, 208/230 or 277 volts. 8.5 – 20 amps depending on your choice of volts.


Motor:  1/10 HP, 7500 RPM


Airflow 200 CFMs: (Cubic Feet per minute), 7300 LFMs (Linear Feet per Minute)

Noise level
:  75 dBs (Quiet!) 

Dry timeUnder 30 seconds

Timed setting:  30 seconds (For Push Button Model)

Nozzle settings
:  The Universal Nozzles on the dryers are all shipped in the fixed setting.  If you want the nozzles to be in the swivel position so that they can rotate up for face and hair drying, use the wrench included to loosen the fixing screw during installation.  The "5" in the model number indicates a fixed nozzle.  You no longer see model numbers without the "5" since they all now ship fixed.  So the A-974 is now the A5-974.  These meet all hand dryer specifications that call for a swivel or flip nozzle.

Recessed settings:   For an ADA compliant Model A that is 4" off the wall, select a recessed mounted dryer.  These dryers all come with the new "Q" nozzle, which is more effective than the old "E" nozzle.  Model numbers are therefore RA5-Q975, XRA5-Q974, etc.  These model numbers replace the old model numbers of RA5E-974, XRA5E-974, etc.  If you still wish to purchase a dryer with an "E" nozzle, we can provide this for you at the same price as the "Q" nozzle dryer.  Please email us at info@restroomdirect.com.

Recessed dryers come together with the wall box that must be installed first into the wall.  Cover options are cast iron and the new stainless steel (automatic only).  Stainless model numbers (120 volt shown) are DXRA5-Q973 for brushed stainless and DXRA5-Q972 for polished.  (For other voltages: DXRA54, DXRA57) There are no recessed white steel dryers and World Dryer has discontinued the recessing kit that used to recess the white steel dryers.
