The chrome on this hand dryer is so smooth and shiny that it creates a mirror for the user.  It is very attractive and best for high-end establishments. 

The AirForce hand dryer is a top pick.  It's a high-speed dryer that is also extremely energy efficient and comes at a good price.  While louder than a standard dryer like the Model A, it is not as loud as many of the other high-speed dryers, and is also more comfortable on the hands due to its 11 air outlets. 

World Dryer AirForce hand dryer, model J-970
  • High Speed - 12 second dry time
  • Low Energy - 1100 watts, combined with the fast dry time makes it one of the most energy efficient dryers available anywhere today
  • Greenspec listed (all hand dryers help the environment, but this one is so efficient!)
  • Steritouch (TM) anti-microbial - embedded in the air outlet area and internal components.  We don't think that other dryers that make the claim to be "the most hygienic dryer" are actually as clean as this one.
  • Sleek modern design that is easy to clean with no crevices to hold in dirt.  Did we say hygienic?
  • The World Dryer AirForce has 11 air outlets, so while it is a high speed dryer, it does not hit your hands with a single jet of air like others do.  In our opinion, the single jet of air creates more of air-hose-like sensation and while some may like this feeling, we feel the the 11 air outlets of the World Dryer AirForce is more comfortable.
  • Sound level: at 85.1 dB with hands present, the Airforce is not as loud as some other high-speed dryers.  But if noise is a major concern, you may want a more traditional option like the World Dryer Model A Hand Dryer which runs at 75 dBs and is a very good dryer.  (If you are comparing manufacturer's dB claims, make sure you differentiate between when hands are present and the sound of the dryer running with no hands present, which can be significantly quieter.
