Owner's Guide


  • A Licensed Contractor is required for installation per your local regulatory requirements.
  • Always disconnect the power source before servicing or installing the dryer.
  • VERDEdri hand dryers require a dedicated circuit and must be properly grounded
  • Hand dryers should be placed at least 2 feet apart, near but not over the wash basin.
  • Mount VERDEdri at least 18 inches above or away from reflective surfaces, which risk interference of automatic sensor.


  • Clean unit surfaces with mild soap solution. Avoid using abrasives.
  • Cleaning once every 6-12 months is recommended.
