No. Many salon owners have tried to hang dryers from cord rewinds, but have found them not to be suitable for styling hair. The Freestylist is a very low friction system that will allow you to move the dryer in any direction rapidly without feeling the tug of the cord or the weight of the dryer. It has been awarded several patents. It is a FREE FLOATING SUPPORT mechanism.
First and foremost, the Freestylist is a support system. We include a dryer with the base unit. But in addition to its weightlessness, it offers productivity gains, health benefits, extends dryer life, improves client experience, and removes the clutter from your salon.
The resting height of the dryer can be adjusted with either the wall switch, remote control or adjustment screw to suit the stylist. The system is installed so the dryer is located over the back of the chair. With proper installation, you cannot walk into it.
Drop ceilings are actually the easiest for installation.
Nothing is wrong. Before you let go of the dryer lift it up briskly. The dryer will shut itself off and the dryer brake will engage.
Yes. The Suspended installation kit is designed for high ceilings. Light platforms are a great choice for high ceilings.
Holding your dryer for hours through long days at the salon creates stress to your muscles, tendons, and joints. Reducing the weight you must hold should go a long way towards alleviating the stress and pain.
We have installation kits that facilitate the installation of the Freestylist for virtually any ceiling type. We have kits for ceiling tiles (drop ceiling kit), ceilings with access from above (above the ceiling kit), ceilings with no access from above (rough-in kit). Below ceiling surface mounting, unistrut, and open ceilings use the suspended kit.
Yes. See pictures of such an install. Wall mounts are custom fabrication at this time.
The Freestylist is installed by your local contractor. It is installed in much the same way as a light fixture.
Yes. Your electrician needs to run a 15 amp, 120 volt circuit to power your Freestylist. Don’t worry – they do it every day.
No, but the earlier in the renovation you contact us, the more flexibility you will have with installation options. We will work with you to determine your installation needs and expedite your order.
Our sales staff can field most questions. We have dedicated installation engineers who are very knowledgeable about all aspects of electrical work and construction.
Yes. You can use the suspended kit or attach the system to the wall. You can also suspend lighting platforms.
“Feel” once they get adjusted to using the system. To engage the brake, lift the dryer high enough for it to shut off by itself. Do this quickly and you will engage the brake. If you can’t reach high enough then adjust the dryer. All Freestylists can be adjusted perfectly.
