"Service rating : Arrived Swiftly, Drier works well
Product : Simple to install and works perfectly"

Performance Rating

  • Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watt hours per dry of the hand dryer which is derived from the rated power and the time taken to dry the hands. We have used the figures based on either the manufacturer’s dry time, if yet to be in house tested or based on the in house testing dry time we have conducted. This will also be based on the most energy efficient setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed and/or heat.

    Watt hours per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99Wh = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99Wh = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99Wh = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99Wh = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99Wh = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99Wh = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99Wh = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99Wh = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99Wh = star rating 1
    • 10Wh and above = star rating 0.5
    0.5 out of 5
  • Quiet Sound Level

    This rating is based on the manufacturers stated sound level, usually at 1m. Please see the section titled "how quiet is the." for more information and independent test results, which give a more accurate noise decibel level. These ratings will also be based on the low noise setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed. Therefore at full speed the hand dryer may not be quiet, however it may be adjustable to become quiet if this is required.

    Decibels (dB):

    • Up to 68dB = star rating 5
    • 69 – 70dB = star rating 4.5
    • 71 – 72dB = star rating 4
    • 73 – 74dB = star rating 3.5
    • 75 – 76dB = star rating 3
    • 77 – 78dB = star rating 2.5
    • 79 – 80dB = star rating 2
    • 81 – 82dB = star rating 1.5
    • 83 – 84dB = star rating 1
    3.0 out of 5
  • Life Expectancy

    This rating is based on the number of motor life cycles (number of uses) the hand dryer, in theory, will last for. This is based on the motor life expectancy given to us in hours, from the manufacturer.

    The number of cycles (uses) has been calculated as follows:

    (Number of seconds in the hour / seconds per dry) x motor life hours

    For a more individualised longevity calculation based on your own usage numbers please use the life expectancy calculator on each product page.

    Number of motor life cycles:

    • 1,000,000 and over = star rating 5
    • 800,000 – 999,999 = star rating 4.5
    • 600,000 – 799,999 = star rating 4
    • 400,000 – 599,999 = star rating 3.5
    • 200,000 – 399,999 = star rating 3
    • 100,000 – 199,999 = star rating 2.5
    • 80,000 – 99,999 = star rating 2
    • 60,000 – 79,999 = star rating 1.5
    • 40,000 – 59,999 = star rating 1
    • 39,999 and under = star rating 0.5
    3.5 out of 5
  • High Speed

    These ratings are based on the in house testing we have conducted regarding dry times. They show realistic comparisons of what to expect from each hand dryer. Please note that the manufacturer stated dry time is not always accurate when compared to the hand dryer being used in realistic conditions. The ratings are based on the hand dryer being placed at its high speed setting if it can be manually adjusted.

    Dry Speed (seconds):

    • 10 – 11 seconds = star rating 5
    • 12 – 13 seconds = star rating 4.5
    • 14 – 15 seconds = star rating 4
    • 16 – 17 seconds = star rating 3.5
    • 18 – 19 seconds = star rating 3
    • 20 – 21 seconds = star rating 2.5
    • 22 – 23 seconds = star rating 2
    • 24 – 25 seconds = star rating 1.5
    • 26 – 27 seconds = star rating 1
    • Over 28 seconds = star rating 0.5
    2.0 out of 5
  • Vandal Resistance

    Some hand dryers would not be suitable for some locations where abuse may be likely such as a train station or night club. However the same hand dryer would be suitable for an office or school location. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating, the more suitable we would recommend for areas where abuse may be likely.

    Vandal Resistance score

    • Compact size = score 0.5              
    • Decreased blockage potential = score 0.5
    • Additional Backplate/ fixings strength = score 1
    • Anti-vandal extras = score 1
    • Metal / ABS = score 1    
    • Cover thickness 1.5mm or more = score 0.5        
    • No leverage points (design) = score 0.5
    3.5 out of 5

Description

The UltraDry Pro 1 is available in our range due to there still being a small demand for such a conventional product, especially in high vandal or public use areas such as park facilities.  UDP1W boasts the traditional 360-degree rotating nozzle that proves popular with this kind of hand dryer, allowing users to direct the airflow to not only the hands, but also the face.  The turbo powered 7500RPM motor is significantly faster than most other units in this class and therefore the dry speeds are somewhat quicker.  You will be impressed with the air force power and drying efficiency. This hand dryer has been giving good reliable service for over 10 years with its solid build quality and 304 grade stainless steel cover.  A peace of mind 3 year guarantee comes as standard.

At 72dB this remains a quiet in use hand dryer mainly due to its reliance on heat for water evaporation rather than motor speed. Although this makes it not the most energy efficient or quickest drying hand dryer out there, the low cost UltraDry Pro 1 still gives better a performance when compared to other leading brands conventional style hand dryers such as Wandsworth, Warner Howard, World Dryer, Mediclinics Saniflow, Newlec Manrose and Airstream.  All components are manufactured in the same production facility to ensure outstanding quality control. 

If you are looking for a traditional style hands and face dryer, where speed of dry and energy efficiency are not top of your priorities, then the UltraDry Pro 1 will give you a very robust and reliable hand dryer at a budget price.

Technical Description

Available in a white, brushed satin or chrome 304 grade stainless steel cover with anti vandal construction. A chrome plated 360-degree rotatable nozzle allows for face drying. The class I turbo motor produces 7500RPM, delivering an air speed of 68MPH.  The manufacturer dry times are stated as being 15-20 seconds and you may see this advertised for the same product under a different brand that has come out of the same factory. Our strict testing has shown the dry times to actually be around 25-30 seconds.  The overall rated power is 2.5kW with the low noise of 72dB being produced from 1M.

Does it actually do what the manufacturer states? Independent testing information

At Intelligent Hand Dryers UK, our ethos is to bring you as much open, honest and reliable information as possible so you can make the most suitable and informed purchase.

We endeavour to include independently obtained results and in house testing, as well as manufacturer's specifications. This gives a true reflection of dry time performance, noise and energy efficiency of each hand dryer.

Noise level testing was conducted at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and a leading independent testing facility.

We also provide in house video testing to demonstrate dry performance. This gives a visual demonstration in “real use” as opposed to using methodical scientific protocols.  The approximate dry time using this method was set when no spots of water could be seen on a paper towel after drying the hands.  This is over and above what is required to be classed as a “hygienic dry” which requires 95% of the hands to be dry after using the dryer.

How quiet is the UltraDry Pro 1?

Manufacturers typically measure sound levels in terms of decibels dB(A) @ a 1 metre distance in a sound proof chamber. This measurement does not take into account the increase in noise when hands are positioned under/in the dryer or when the sound bounces off walls. Where possible we supply manufacturer's stated dB(A), and 2 independent tests which are more reflective of 'real conditions’.

Manufacturer stated

72 dB(A)

Hands under in an anechoic chamber (sound proof)

N/A

Hands under in a normal room*

N/A

*represents maximum “real life” volume

Equivalent Examples:
Normal Conversation                      50 - 70dB(A)
Vacuum Cleaner                             70dB(A)
Busy Traffic / Alarm clock               80dB(A)
Lawn Mower / Chainsaw                 90dB(A)
*various internet sources

Please click here to read our guide to help understand what the perceived decibel level above would be equivalent to.

It is worth noting that if your noise concern relates to the noise carrying into different areas of the building then pitch will be just as relevant as sound output (loudness). Higher frequency pitches will not travel through walls as easily as low frequency pitches for example. Please contact usdirectly to discuss your specific need.

What extra hygiene aspects does the UltraDry Pro 1 have?

Washing hands correctly is the best way to ensure high levels of hand hygiene.  Making sure hands are completely dry is the next important aspect of hand hygiene.

Most modern hand dryers have standard hygienic properties such as fast dry times and touch free sensors to activate. However for added peace of mind some models have enhanced hygienic properties.

This hand dryer has no specific enhanced hygiene features other than the standard touchless operation.

What is the life expectancy of the UltraDry Pro 1?

So how long will this dryer last?

Hand dryers can have 2 types of motor which are:

  • A digital brushless motor
  • A universal brush motor

In theory, universal brush motors do not last as long as digital brushless motors and require the brushes to be changed periodically. They also vary in their lifespan. Digital motors however do cost more to repair should they fail at any point.  There are variations in the lifespans of both universal brushed motors and digital motors.

The best way to choose what is right for you is to look at your facility and the amount of use each hand dryer is expected to get. This way it can be determined if a brushed motor hand dryer would be most suitable for you or whether investing in a digital brushless motor would be more cost effective.

The UltraDry Pro 1 hand dryer has the following features to help reduce vandalism:

  • Compact size
  • Robust construction
  • Thick metal cover
  • Its shape means it is hard to get a grip on the unit to be pulled off the wall

How suitable is the UltraDry Pro 1 for disabled users?

There are a few points to consider when choosing a hand dryer with disabled users in mind.  These include:

  • Wheelchair access with regard to users being able to position their hands correctly
  • The amount of moisture that will be left on the floor after drying if units are to be used by people physically impaired
  • The noise level of some high speed hand dryers may be too loud for some users, such as users with autism, multiple sclerosis etc.

Disabled areas often double up as baby changing facilities, so considerations include leaving extra space for double buggies, noise levels for children etc.

The UltraDry Pro 1 hand dryer has the following features that may negate these concerns:

  • Relatively low noise levels
  • A nozzle that rotates 360 degrees creating a great amount of accessibility
  • Compact shape so doesn’t take up too much room

What’s our expert view and brand comparison of the UltraDryPro 1 hand dryer?

The UltraDry Pro 1 hand dryer is a budget priced option that doesn't disappoint, but be wary of siting somewhere where it will get over 300 uses per day. Like everything in life, value reflects the purpose it is fit for, so this will be a great hand dryer in most situations but you can’t pay under £100 and then expect to stick them in Waterloo station!

Unless you have a high traffic washroom you can't go wrong with this hand dryer. It's cheap, reliable, fast and reasonably energy efficient compared with traditional models. Of course you can buy faster, lower energy hand dryers and hand dryers that will stand up to more intense use. If your facility needs this then look at the TurboForce, C-Force or G-Force hand dryers.
