Already the fastest, most effective, energy efficient and environmentally friendly hand dryer in New Zealand, the original Airblade A01 will be joined by the new Airblade A03.
“Since the launch of the Dyson Airblade A01 hand dryer, we have been working with clients and distributors to help measure the effect of hand drying solutions on energy consumption, waste to landfill and carbon reduction policies.” says Brett Avery, of Avery Robinson, Dyson’s New Zealand distributor.
“During this time it had become clear that as well as offering a more energy and carbon efficient solution in use, which the Dyson Airblade A01 already provides, there was an opportunity to reduce the CO2e emissions in the production of our hand dryers.” Brett says.
Made from Polycarbonate ABS, rather than aluminium, the new Airblade A03 hand dryer is over 50% more CO2e efficient to produce. Utilising the same material often used in the manufacture of golf club heads, riot shields and crash helmets, PC- ABS ensures toughness, strength, ease of moulding and high quality surface finish from the polycarbonate, along with exceptional shock absorbance and chemical resistance from the ABS.
Along with the significant impact in reducing carbon emissions during manufacture, the new Airblade A03 hand dryer also offers a lighter alternative to the A01, ideal for light duty walls or environments that require constant relocation.
With the aim to further improve speed and product efficiency, the sensors on the A03 have also been relocated to ensure a faster response when hands are inserted and removed.
"When we introduced the Airblade A01 hand dryer to the market, it quickly made its mark as an effective solution to hand dryers that don’t work properly." To this day the Airblade A01 remains unique and is the only hand dryer approved by HACCP for food safety excellence, ensuring the product will remain on the market.
“The introduction of the new A03 range however takes this technology to the next step and is a testament to Dyson’s environmental policy and commitment to not only improve our product solutions to drive better results, but to also consider our impact to the environment,” Brett explains.
The new Dyson Airblade A03 hand dryer will be available in the colour Metallic Steel.
