The Airblade hand dryer forces unheated air through an aperture the width of an eyelash at over 640 kilometres per hour to create a high velocity blade of air that wipes hands dry in just 10 seconds; hand rubbing is not needed to aid drying.
The machine’s sealed casing is infused with anti-microbial additives, eliminating 99.9% of surface bacteria. As a result, it is suitable for hygiene critical locations like hospitals and food preparation areas.
