Williams Direct Dryers

Williams Direct Dryers™ use a direct, NFPA friendly, non-tumble style drying mechanism to safely and effectively dry your wet or damp turnout or bunker gear, ppe and fire gear. Williams Direct Dryers™ alone, or in conjunction with an extractor/ washer, will:

  • Improve the overall thermal stability of your gear.   
  • Increase the useable life of your turnouts.
  • Reduce the potential of adverse health effects and material damage caused by bacteria and mildew in wet or damp turnouts.

Williams Direct Dryers™ designs and manufactures over 50 different styles of turnout gear and fire gear dryers. Drying is our business, our only business. We live by our motto: "If you can wear it….we can dry it!"

Lovell VFD (ME)

Our dryers all work beyond expectations. Wet is dry in no time. We wash our gear more often and the service from Williams and Jon Kugler has been great.

Dan Hoff, Chief
York Area United Fire Rescue (PA)

The drying time and safety you have given us is perfect. No doubt we made the right choice in purchasing your dryer.

Richard Oakes, Chief of Department
Vinton FD (VA)

I can certainly say we are very please with our 4 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. We could rotate multiple sets through in the duration of a day which improved operational efficiency. We are very please we could purchase a piece of equipment like this.

Scott Schneider, Fire Chief/ EFO
Two Rivers FD (WI)

The unit is very "User Friendly" and effective in mask drying. Keep up the good work.
