Dyson Airblade Hand Drying Technology in a Tap
With Airblade technology in a tap, hands can be dried at the sink in 14 seconds.** There's no need to move to a separate hand drying area.
**Dry time measured using Dyson test method 769 based on NSF P335 using a measurement of 0.1g residual moisture.
Both water and air are sensor operated so there are no taps to turn, or buttons to touch. Intelligent, infrared sensors emit light to pinpoint hand positions. Computer circuitry coordinates the information and initiates the appropriate response of water or air without long delays.
Dyson digital motor V4
The Dyson digital motor V4 was seven years in the making - it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1400W motors. It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 28 liters of air per second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 14 seconds.**
This long-life, energy-efficient motor is digitally switched at 6,100 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 92,000 times a minute. There are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
Wash and dry hands at the sink
"In restrooms using conventional taps, you'll need to move to a separate hand drying area, dripping water on the floors as you go. It's why we've developed a tap with our hand drying technology in it."
— James Dyson, Inventor
Approved by HACCP International
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer has been approved by HACCP International as safe for use in the food and beverage industry.
"The technology addresses a number of unacceptable risks posed by hand dryers in the past. It's easy to clean and is a touch-free system. It also has a fast dry cycle. With the inclusion of a HEPA filter, these features combine to considerably reduce the risk of microbiological contamination and thereby meet HACCP international's food safety criteria."
— Clive Withinshaw, Director, HACCP international
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer dries hands in just 12 seconds**. It's the fastest hand dryer. It also has touch-free operation, uses a HEPA filter and has a lifetime antimicrobial additive to protect the product. No other hand dryer meets every part of NSF Protocal P335.
The most hygienic hand dryer
Most other hand dryers are unhygienic. They don't filter bacteria from the restroom air. They suck in dirty air then blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses a HEPA filter removing 99.97% of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air used to dry hands. So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air.
14 second dry time
The conventional way to wash and dry hands is too slow. Hand drying facilities are often not located near a sink, and dryers can take up to 43 seconds, so people can give up. But damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands. There's no need to leave the sink to use the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer and it dries hands in 14 seconds.**
Lowest operating costs
Most other hand drying methods are expensive to run. Paper towels need restocking and disposal. Most other hand dryers are slow, and many use a heating element, so they're energy-hungry.
The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run per year than other hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels. And of course there are no separate taps to buy.
Low impact on the environment
Dyson Airblade hand dryers produce up to 79% less CO2 than some other hand dryers and up to 76% less than recycled paper towels.
Controlled water flow rate and sensor operation can help save water.
Quick to clean
Smooth, stainless steel outer, wipes down directly over the sink - no separate hand dryers to clean.
5 year warranty
The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer comes with a 5 year parts and 5 year limited labor warranty.
