Frequently Asked Questions

On the Product

Can all types of garments be dried in the drying cabinet? Yes. The cabinet is suitable for all clothing including outdoor, leisure, sports garments, footwear and laundry items. It can even dry items with a high Lycra and Nylon content unlike a standard tumble dryers.
How long does it take to dry items in the cabinet? This will depend on the type of item you are drying. However the cabinets have a clever “Humidity Tracking System” that senses the moisture in the cabinet and will automatically turn the unit off when all items are dry, thus reducing energy cost. This means the cycle could be less than 25 minutes or extend to on average 60 minutes depending on the dampness of the garments.
My garment has a “Do Not Tumble Dry” label on it. Can this till go in the cabinet? Yes. It is safe to place all fabrics in the cabinet including woollens and silks. The cabinets dry items slowly without the mechanical action of a tumble dryer. The heating level inside the cabinet can be adjusted to suit the contents.
