The Tekflo® Essential Hand Dryer

Our most compact hand dryer is also our most affordable.

We won’t beat around the bush. If you’re looking for an affordable, compact hand dryer that delivers strong performance for low to medium traffic washrooms, then the Teklo® Essential Hand Dryer is hard to beat.

Automatic operation, a powerful brushless motor and a robust metal shell are just three of the Essential’s features that you’d usually only expect to find on hand dryers costing at least twice as much, but at Tekflo® we believe in offering a superior product at all price points.

Perfect for smaller washrooms where space is at a premium, the Tekflo® Essential is a small hand dryer that’s cheap to run and at just £99 ex. VAT offers a great alternative to costly and messy paper towels or less hygienic roller dryers.

No frills. Just great performance.

Robust and reliable, the Essential is one of our best-selling models, proving itself daily in thousands of washrooms around the world.

Powered by an energy efficient 100W motor, the Essential dries hands in a more than respectable 20 seconds*, making it one of the fastest driers in its price class.

Automatic ‘no-touch’ operation keeps hygiene at the fore while the rapid auto cut-off prevents unnecessary energy wastage by cutting power as soon as hands are removed from the air stream area.

keep the noise down…

Unlike other hand dryers, for the Tekflo® Essential, affordable doesn’t have to mean noisy!

Some low cost hand dryers can really disturb the peace, but the Tekflo® Essential does it’s business quietly, so you can get on with yours.

Ideal in small offices or restaurants where you don’t want to interfere with the ambience, the Essential is rated at a very respectable 72dB when it’s in full swing, that’s about the same volume as your living room tv running at sensible level.
