SYDNEY: Electrolux will expand its Ultra Silencer range with a new clothes dryer to join other existing ‘quiet’ products under the sub-brand including a front load washer and vacuum cleaner.

Scheduled to be released in May 2006, the Ultra Silencer 6kg dryer (RRP $699) operates at a low 62.5dB through a specially-designed fan and air chamber which allows for optimum airflow.

The dryer is also equipped with auto-sensing technology to protect garments from over-drying, economical design which means the dryer uses only the exact amount of energy required to complete the job, vented drying system, stainless steel drum and a wide easy-loading door.

Electrolux Home Products director – brand marketing, Nick Gibson, believes the Ultra Silencer range has gained a solid position within the market.

“When considering the Ultra Silencer range of products, Electrolux was thinking of people who wanted a product which wouldn’t disrupt the harmony of their home,” he said.

The Ultra Silencer clothes dryer will be supported by a two year warranty and Electrolux’s Top Service after sales customer care program.
