The View from The Shard Picks Dyson Airblade V hand dryers

The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe. This iconic building, designed by master architect Renzo Piano, reaches 310m into the sky. It has redefined London’s skyline.

‘T he View from The Shard’ is the highest viewing platform from which the general public can view London – it is almost twice the height of any other. Spread across floors 68, 69 and 72 of The Shard, it offers 360° views across England’s capital city that reach up to 40 miles.

Previously, warm air hand dryers had been installed in the public washrooms. But they were not considered effective enough at drying hands, and their dated look did not reflect well on The Shard’s cutting-edge architectural and design status.

It is easy to replace old hand dryers with the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer. Being just four inches deep, no recessing is required and no additional services are needed for installation. The Dyson machine dries hands in just 10 seconds and all the air passes through a HEPA filter that captures 99.9% of bacteria.

Guests have responded well to the drying speed and like the look of the Dyson hand dryers. Operations Director Sandy Clark explains, “The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers are efficient and drying time has improved dramatically. Guests feel that the new hand dryers are higher quality than hand dryers they have used elsewhere.”

The decision to replace old fashioned energy-hungry hand dryers with Airblade™ technology has also been received positively by management at ‘ The View from The Shard’. Sandy explains, “ We’re delighted with the new machines, and are particularly pleased to be one of the first British businesses to install Dyson Airblade V hand dryers.”
