The World Dryer M5-974 hand dryer has a white cast iron cover, is manually operated with a push button and is surface mounted to the wall. The AirMax white push button hand dryer is manufactured by World Dryer and is both a heavy duty and a high speed hand dryer. The World Dryer M5-974 will dry hands in 15 seconds, while providing for excellent durability in most any environment. Robust in design, they are perfect for high volume traffic restrooms where vandalism is a concern like schools, gas stations, and public recreation centers. These AirMax white push button hand dryers have a lower noise level and use only 50% of the energy compared to other traditional hand dryers, proving a huge savings when compared to paper towels. Each Airmax comes with a 10 year limited warranty (5 year limited warranty on the motor and sensor, and 3 year on the motor brushes). The Airmax is the industry leader for resilient, surface-mounted hand dryers.
