Those of us who love spending time outside were tired of spending endless hours drying our gloves, shoes and boots.
"They have developed a series of shoe and glove dryer that actually work. The result is a drying time which is one fifth of whats regular."
"Developed next generation shoe dryers."
"Finally invented something that really works!"
"Test winner among over 10 different shoe dryers"
"6 out of 6. Functions above any other dryer. Elegant design. Very happy with the ability to adjust temperature for leather boots."
Yes, you can dry a pair of wet running shoes as fast as 5 minutes, but this requires that all the air goes into one pair shoes at maximum speed and heat. Allow a little common sense to prevail. Drying times depend on many things such as the material of the shoes, their size, how wet etc, so expect most items to dry within 15 to 20 minutes. For big boots or rain boots allow up to 40 minutes.
When drying leather boots any other sensitive materials like form fit ski boots use no heat or 37 degrees over multiple hours. Also remember that leather should not be dried to 100% - it should naturally have some moisture in it to keep it supple and not like jerky!
Even keeping this in mind, the Hedgehog still dries your shoes and gloves amazingly fast!
In collaboration with engineers at the Waterpower Laboratory at NTNU - designers of water turbines for power plants - we have designed both the impeller and fan house from scratch.
We have been able to optimise airflow by utilising turbo technology.
The key to fast drying is through creating a high flow of hot air at high pressure. The Hedgehog drier achieves this by using a compact brushless motor, a purpose-built impeller and a ceramic heating element.
The result is a super powerful fan which is truly unique and unparalleled in performance.
The ceramic heating element is fire safe and all electrical componentry in coated with fire and corrosion resistant gel. The Hedgehog unit comes with double fuses and a temperature sensor fitted as standard for your peace of mind..
Our fans are certified by NEMKO and International Standards IEC/EN 60335-1, EC/EN 60335-2-43, IEC/ EN 62233, EN 55014-1:2017, EN 610003-2:2014, EN 61000-3-3:2013, EN 55014-2:2015, IEC/EN 60335-2-65.
Bjørn Holte moved from New York City to Hemsedal and quickly discovered the daily challenge, nuisance, and headache of having multiple pairs of dry gloves and shoes for their growing family. With three (now four!) young children, gloves, shoes and boots were frequently soaking wet or totally misplaced once they arrived at home. Hemsedal, like much of Scandinavia, has snow and rain most of the year. For an active outdoorsy family, staying cozy means staying dry, whatever the weather.
Bjørn tried to use shoe dryers on the market, but the other products were weak and ineffective. He needed a simple solution that would dry and organize his family's gloves and boots quickly and decided to create a new product that would solve the problem. This is how the idea of Hedgehog originated.
In 2022, we were awarded the Red Dot Award: Product Design, MUSE Design Award, and NY Product Design Award, some of the largest and most prestigious design awards in the world.
People often ask us...what are we doing when we're not designing award-winning shoe dryers? Well, the answer is simple, getting the party started... This year we didn't just win at the...
