Excel Dryer Publishes Health Product Declarations for Three Models

Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

EAST LONGMEADOW, MA -- Excel Dryer, Inc., maker of high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers, has announced that the Health Product Declarations (HPDs) of three of its hand dryer models, have been thoroughly reviewed and verified by an independent agency.

Developed by the Health Product Declaration Collaborative, HPDs are “a standardized format for the transparent disclosure of building product ingredients and associated hazards.” HPDs are a tool that helps buyers and specifiers better understand the environmental and health impacts of a product’s materials, to make more informed product selections.

The verified HPDs are for Excel’s original, patented, high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR Hand Dryer, the XLERATOReco Hand Dryer and the ThinAir Hand Dryer,

As common concern for sustainability and health continues to grow, manufacturers like Excel have committed themselves to transparency in their products and processes. In publishing their HPDs, Excel Dryer continues to set a trailblazing path for their industry.

“The publication of the Health Product Declarations demonstrates our ongoing commitment to manufacturing transparency,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing, William Gagnon. “We at Excel Dryer continually challenge ourselves to lead the industry in environmental sustainability, reliability and product innovation.”

Excel was also the first in the industry to have their products independently evaluated, and their environmental claims substantiated with the publication of the hand dryer industry’s first Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). An Environmental Product Declaration is a standardized way of quantifying the environmental impact of a product by studying the raw materials and energy consumption during its production, use and disposal. EPDs are intended to help purchasers better understand a product’s sustainable qualities and environmental repercussions during their decision-making processes.

“We work hard to source the best materials from quality vendors that are as local as possible, so we are happy to share what goes into our products,” explained Excel Dryer President, Denis Gagnon. “Our primary goal has always been to influence the entire industry to pursue greater transparency in matters of sustainability and health.”
