Review 2022 – TradeMAX Conventional Push Start Hand Dryer - Brushed Stainless Steel (Satin)

When we walk into a public washroom to wash our hands, dry them off, and leave, we don’t give much thought to the hand dryer. For the majority of us, it’s a metal block hanging from the wall that helps dry our hands. But once you are tasked with finding the best hand dryers to stock up your own facility’s washrooms, you start paying attention to all the different factors — price, shape, size, type of operation, casing material, brand, and so on. Those are exactly the factors we break down during our reviews to help you make the right decision. 

For today’s hand dryer review, we’re taking a look at the TradeMAX Conventional Push Start Hand Dryer in Brushed Stainless Steel (Satin)


This hand dryer is a favoured one for schools, colleges, and universities since it shines with its thick 1.5mm stainless steel shell for durability. The model is available in 7 finishes: Push start version in  Brushed Stainless Steel/Polished Stainless Steel, Auto Start version Brushed Stainless Steel/Polished Stainless Steel, White/ Silver/Black Coated Fire Retardant ABS Plastic version. 


The TradeMAX Conventional Push Start Hand Dryer is a relatively neutral-priced option, coming in at $330. You can find hand dryers at a lower price point, but If you want to buy many hand dryers to equip an entire facility's worth of washrooms, this is a very cost-effective method to do it without spending over $500 on a single hand dryer.


This model has a noticeably low noise level of 67 dBA, lower than the majority of both conventional hand dryers and high-speed hand dryers alike. The majority of hand dryers run at 70-85 decibels or less, with some even reaching 100 decibels. If noise control is an important factor for your facility, then the TradeMAX Conventional Hand Dryer is certainly up there on the list. 


Conventional hand dryers operate with a heating agent that is absent in high-speed models. The absence of it is what makes high-speed models crank up the noise levels since the dryer needs to essentially push the water off of the hands with cold airflow, which must be done with a powerful flow. The TradeMAX offers low noise but dries hands slower, fully drying hands in around 20-25 seconds. It’s still a normal range for hand drying.


The TradeMAX hand dryers are vandal-proof, however only the stainless steel models. The stainless steel shell allows for this hand dryer to be an investment for years when it comes to external damages by users. No need to worry about kids or adults of any age group tampering with this model and reducing its quality — and aesthetic appearance — anytime soon. It’s also available with a fire-retardant casing in white, silver, or black. 


This hand dryer is ideal for all public restrooms with low to moderate human traffic. Keeping this in mind, the following public facilities are the best places to put this hand dryer:

  • Schools, colleges, and universities
  • Small to medium traffic offices
  • Bars, pubs, grill houses
  • Cafes
  • Medical clinics
  • And more!
