The USGBC MA is proud to announce that Excel Dryer has become a sponsoring partner of our organization! We're incredibly excited to be working with this renowned company that we're sure you've seen in public before. Excel Dryer, Inc. is a family-owned and operated small business that has been manufacturing the finest American-made hand dryers for over 50 years and the only ones that are Made In USA Certified®, featuring the original, patented, high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOR® Hand Dryers.
Excel is incredibly devoted to their mission of going green in their products. In their products, they factor in an entire Life Cycle Assessment, meaning they need to know the entire environmental impact that their products will have on the environment. You may not expect this one, but their XLERATOR product is more energy efficient than paper towels! That's right - it takes more energy to dispose of paper towels than to use a hand dryer.
The XLERATOR qualifies buildings for LEED credits in two categories:
- EA (Energy & Atmosphere) Prerequisite 2 - Minimum Energy Performance
- EA Credit 1 - Optimize Energy Performance (now a mandatory credit for all LEED-certified facilities)
How many hand dryers and paper towels can say they're a part of the LEED rating system? Hint - not many.
Thanks for partnering with us, and we look forward to working with you!
