LED LIGHTING SYSTEM
Loox LED (light-emitting diode) system from Häfele America Company, uses a universal worldwide power system where switches, lights and drivers are “plug and play.” The identification system for the operating system (12v, 24v or 350mA) allows the user to refer to color-coded symbols rather than a specific plug. Not only does the Loox LED system bring design flexibility, but it is affordable, UL listed, allows 50,000 hours of lamp life, lower power consumption and does not require an electrician.

This dryer also comes with microprocessor controls, allowing operators to preprogram drying times, temperature and cool-down time. Multilingual readouts make controls easy for everyone to operate. The Sensor-Activated Fire Extinguishing (S.A.F.E.) System, which detects a fire in the dryer, douses it with water and alerts the user that a fire has been extinguished, is standard on this dryer.
