Turnout Gear & PPE Dryers

NFPA-friendly non-tumble dryers for firefighter duty gear

No one knows the importance of safety like the men and women who have chosen careers in public safety. Williams Direct Dryers has made it our mission to honor your commitment to your community with a promise of our own: we will always develop the safest, most effective turnout gear dryers possible to help care for the equipment that takes care of you.

Our non-tumble style dryers are NFPA-friendly with stainless hardware and waterproof switching. Each unit is built with durable components and is designed to last even through frequent use. Perhaps this is why many fire departments across the globe have chosen to install our gear dryers to care for their equipment.

Our innovative drying system comes with unmatched benefits:

  • Maintain thermal stability of PPE
  • Increase usable life of turnout gear
  • Remove 99.99 percent of bacteria from gear
  • Reduce risk of mildew growth in damp equipment
  • Optional palm expanders for drying arms

Don’t wait to take control of your team’s health. Our dryers offer better drying options, which reduces contamination from common pollutants like dust and ash. Switch between warmed air and ambient drying with the flick of a switch to accommodate delicate items like masks or turnout gear with thermal protection.

I can certainly say we are very pleased with our four-station gear dryer. After a number of fires, we have had and the ongoing training, the use of our washer and then the gear dryer dramatically improves the drying time.
