Ultra-Slim Dryer Awarded The Quiet Mark


Airdri’s ultra-slim hand dryer, the Elite, initially designed to respond to the standards outlined in the American Disability Act, has been awarded the Quiet Mark.

Jangro, the UK’s largest network of 41 independent janitorial supply companies, is once again leading the way in products and compliance within the industry. This is not only with its range of 4,000 products, but its popular eLearning suite of training modules called Jangro LMS (Learning Management Solution).


Last year Jangro produced eight modules, which included COSHH, Health and Safety, Colour Coding and Infection Control, Carpetcare, Kitchen Hygiene and Floorcare, ‘Introduction to Equipment’ and Washrooms. A further two new modules are currently being produced, which will cover Housekeeping and an Introduction to Cleaning, with additional programmes to be announced later this year.

the best value and most convenient way to train cleaning staff. Joanne Gilliard, Jangro’s Operations Director, said: “The popularity of our low cost, user-friendly training programme has been tremendous. We are urgently developing new topics to meet customer demand.”


Throughout the Jangro LMS modules, there are handy reference guides and downloads that include COSHH, Risk assessments and Product Usage Guides and other area specific information. The original 25 animated Jangro product user guides have recently increased to almost 100, and there are a further 150 scheduled to cover all chemicals in the Jangro brand range.


Jangro LMS is accessible on most Internet browsers and the Jangro app can be downloaded for Apple, Android and BlackBerry devices.

be frightening for small children, while the hard of hearing and the elderly can find loud noise uncomfortable. We strive to provide sustainable and innovative products that reflect our commitment to both energy and noise reduction, keeping both customers and the environment foremost in our product development planning.”


The slim profile of the Elite ensures easy access when space is limited, making it perfect for washrooms of any size. Its stylish contemporary appearance, available in either white or brushed stainless steel, makes it one of the most popular models in the Airdri range.


Airdri will be launching new models in May this year, as part of its 40th anniversary, expanding its range of dryers to ensure there is a product for every need.
