Using a hospital- grade HEPA filter, the Dyson Airblade hand dryer eliminates 99.9% of bacteria to ensure hands are hygienically dried. Dyson Airblade offers safety and hygiene benefits to the hospitality industry, especially when considering that cross contamination of bacteria between people is 1,000 times more likely to occur when hands are damp.
Hand drying provisions are a core requirement of all food-handling facilities, regardless of the size of the building, purpose of the facilities or end users using the amenities. A hand drying device that can offer significant savings, provide an environmental solution to the gross waste of paper towels and maintenance required to constantly refill dispensers; and in it’s uniqueness, speed and appeal, prompts good hand hygiene, in the end delivers to facilities a healthier and more sustainable environment.
In the New Zealand and Australian hospitality sector, you will find Dyson Airblade installed at selected McDonalds restaurants, 1885 at the Britomart, The Food Store, Eden Park, Campbell Arnotts, Schweppes, Sanitarium, Kellogg’s Australia, Unilever, Jupiter’s Casino, Star City Casino and Crown Casino.
How does it work?
Using the patented Dyson Digital Motor, unheated air is forced at 640km/h through two apertures, creating high speed sheets of air which scrape water from hands in just ten seconds, leaving them completely dry.
With no heating element and powered by a long life energy efficient digital motor patented by Dyson, the Dyson Airblade hand dryer uses up to 80% less energy than conventional warm air hand dryers. The new A03 Airblade hand dryer has also been revised to reduce the run on period, resulting in even greater energy efficiency.
Kinder to the Environment
The Dyson Airblade hand dryer offers a functional and efficient alternative both to conventional warm air hand dryers which use too much energy and carbon motors and the wastage of natural resources committed with paper towel usage.
Paper towels require significant energy resource requirements to continually manufacture, transport and maintain supply in paper towel dispensers, along with creating additional landfill when disposed. In fact, using just one Dyson Airblade 200 times a day for five years saves 730,000 paper towels from being produced, transported and disposed of (calculation based on an average of two paper towels per hand dry), thereby immediately reducing a facility’s carbon footprint.
When compared to paper towel dispensers, for the price of a single paper towel the Dyson Airblade hand dryer is able to dry 29 pairs of hands. (Calculation based on an average paper towel cost of $0.02 and an electricity charge of $0.155 per KWh excl. GST).
Compared to conventional warm air hand dryers, the Airblade uses 80% less energy, so along with reducing energy consumption, this also reduces the electricity bill.
