Every day is dry day

Every day is dry day - Boss Cabins - We Mean Business

Need to dry wet clothing on site but concerned about energy costs and emissions? The latest addition to our GenFree range provides the answer.

In the unpredictable UK climate, having an on-site facility to dry wet clothing is not just a legal requirement but also but also crucial for employee well-being, ensuring a dry and comfortable workforce.

But conventional drying rooms pose a significant energy burden on worksites, consuming substantial power. Often connected to large generators, the operational costs of these drying units can be exorbitant, not just financially, but also contributing heavily to a site’s greenhouse gas emissions, not to mention noise pollution from the generator.

The vast majority of existing drying cabins operate inefficiently and wastefully, utilising power-hungry electric fan heaters to heat excessively large spaces to dry clothes hung around the cabin’s perimeter. On a site connected to mains electricity, this is problematic enough, incurring large energy costs for the end user. However, on an off-grid site, the challenges escalate significantly. A drying room will usually be connected to a large site generator which runs continuously when power is demanded. A large generator creates much more power than that required by the drying unit, and the excess is wasted. To make things worse, poorly regulated thermostatic controls, coupled with the inability to remotely monitor the cabin’s operation when no one is on site, often result in generators running unnecessarily 24/7, nights and weekends, burning fuel, disrupting the local area with noise, emitting harmful pollutants and incurring significant costs.

Moreover, using a generator to burn diesel for electricity production is inherently inefficient, with 45% of the fuel’s calorific value lost in heat and noise before any electricity is generated. Constantly running a generator at low load can also harm the engine, causing internal contamination and potential damage.

Our patent pending Dry Space cabin changes all that. A low-energy, low-emission, silent-running solution for drying clothes and workwear on any off-grid site, this innovative new concept in drying cabins is 100% standalone, eliminating the need for an on-board generator, connection to a site generator or a mains hook-up.

The cabin’s electrics are entirely powered by solar energy, and rapid efficient drying is achieved through an ultra-low consumption heating system using only 0.25 litres of fuel per hour. Advanced temperature and humidity controls automatically shut down the heating system when clothes are dry, ensuring zero energy wastage.

Boss Cabins MD James Kearsey explains: “Having perfected our solar-powered GenFree welfare units, we wanted to address other ways our customers could save energy onsite and improve their environmental performance.

“With drying rooms being such a huge and obvious guzzler of energy, we are delighted to have come up with this convenient and cost-effective solution to ensure that staff clothes are dry and wearable whilst minimising the amount of fuel required. We’ve 100% done away with the need to use a generator by adopting the most efficient means of generating heat via a diesel heater combined with the latest solar technology.

“Dry Space is also equipped with our usual GenFree 24/7 remote monitoring and reporting system so it’s easy to track how much the units are saving and report on your carbon reductions. In tests, we’re seeing cost savings of as much as £400 per week in fuel alone. And being a towable unit, users will save even more on the cost of getting their units on and off site.”
