The Benefits of a Boot Dryer in Sporting Industries

Thankfully, the latest advancements in boot dryer technology mean that drying your skiing and snowboarding gear, as well as your soccer, hockey and football boots, is easier than ever. People who regularly play sports know that these types of skin irritations are no laughing matter and can seriously affect their A-game. Numerous types of bacteria and fungi can be found in damp athletic gear, including the following:

  • Staphylococcus Aureus - Typically found in helmets, this can lead to pimples, boils and other unsanitary skin complaints
  • Streptococcus Faecalis - Found in hockey jocks, this is normally associated with fecal matter
  • MRSA - Staph infections often begin as painful boils before worsening
  • Tinea Pedis (Athlete's Foot) - A fungal infection that begins in-between the toes before steadily spreading, Athlete's Foot typically occurs thanks to tight-fitting or old shoes, sneakers and boots. It is contagious and therefore can proliferate via floors, towels and/or clothing

Due to health risks such as these, the elimination of sweat and dampness from sporting clothing and footwear is crucial for comfort and for health reasons. Commercial and industrial boot dryers available from help reduce the development of the fungi and bacteria that flourishes in moist sports garments. Portable clothes, shoe, glove and hockey boot dryers produce a high volume, gently warmed stream of air that travels through each garment, and there is no risk of the fabric cracking or splitting due to overheating. Designed and constructed for use in several different sporting industries, electric air boot dryers dry snow boots, hockey skates and inline skates, running shoes, Hazmat suits and PPE gear, fishing outerwear, bunker gear, industrial work garments, scuba wetsuits, and SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) masks. Our industrial dryers are also employed by law enforcement agencies nationwide, as well as the United States and Canadian military.

The Benefits of a Boot Dryer in Sporting Industries

If your workday typically involves wearing durable, heavy-duty clothing like athletic attire, wet weather gloves and boots, firefighter turnout gear, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) clothing, Hazmat suits, scuba gear, or skiing and snowboarding garments, you may already be familiar with the health risks that accompany extreme dampness. Sweat glands in the human foot produce up to eight ounces of sweat daily and, combined with exposure to rain, snow, wet grass or other soggy settings, excessive moisture can create odorous bacteria, skin inflammations, painful rashes, blistering, and other sore and unsightly skin conditions.
