SAVORTEX, the young and ambitious, technology-driven British Manufacturer of energy efficient hand dryers has been confirmed as finalists at the 2013 Greenbuild Awards for their super energy efficient hand dryer – the Vortex 540 Diamond White. The awards celebrate truly sustainable buildings; they are the only awards that are designed to reward the performance of truly sustainable buildings in use.

Recognising the buildings across a number of sectors, including domestic, education and leisure buildings, the awards focus on actual measured performance, not design intent or performance specifications.

SAVORTEX have been entered into a new category called the ‘Retrofit Product Award’ (in association with Salford University, to recognise product innovations for retrofit solutions) and the winners will be announced on the 8thMay during the awards ceremony at the Midland Hotel, Manchester.

Syed Ahmed, Managing Director, SAVORTEX said:

“We are thrilled with the shortlist announcement. Our Vortex 540 Diamond White Hand Dryer is a sustainable, clean, low energy power hand dryer, making it a perfect product for retrofit projects. We have invested heavily in British Manufacturing over the last six years to develop a range of hand dryers that will deliver quick paybacks to our customers. Our Vortex Diamond White now uses a power consumption of 545 watts and allows for unrivalled market-leading cost and energy savings that can boost the bottom line”.

The Greenbuild Awards are judged by a panel of distinguished industry leaders, winners of a Greenbuild Award will know that their work really does raise the bar for the rest of the industry, when it comes to reducing the environmental impact of buildings.

The Vortex Diamond White is priced competitively and comes with a leading 7 year, no quibble warranty as standard.
