DryMate / Energy-saving clothes dryer


Clothes dryers are necessary appliances in dense cities with no space for drying on a rope, in regions with high humidity and for families with a very high quantity of laundry.
Conventional dryers have very high power consumption and are harmful to clothes due to high temperatures (100°C). Also they are impractical to fill and difficult to integrate in living environments.
DryMate uses a low vacuum of only —0,8 bar to dry clothes at a maximum of only 60°C.
DryMates 9° tilted big mouth is at a very convenient height of 86cm and therefore very easy to fill and to empty.
Drymate has a 20% lower depth than conventional clothes dryers.
