Dyson Airblade Mk2 Hand Dryer
Airblade technology combined with the latest Dyson digital motor creates high speed blades of air. The Dyson Airblade Mk2 hand dryer is the fastest way to dry hands. It is suitable for all washrooms, but is particularly recommended for high traffic areas.
Dyson digital motor
The latest Dyson digital motor was seven years in the making - it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1600W motors. It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in up to 30 litres of air a second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 10 seconds.
This long-life energy efficient motor is digitally switched at 6,000 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 90,000 times a minute. There are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
Fastest, 10 second dry time
Testing based on the National Sanitation Foundation's Protocol P335 (NSF P335) shows that most other hand dryers are much slower than their manufacturers claim. Many people give up when using a slow hand dryer. But damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands.
Testing based on NSF P335 proves that the Dyson Airblade Mk2 hand dryer is the fastest. It dries hands hygienically in 10 seconds. Airblade technology combined with the latest Dyson digital motor creates high speed blades of air that scrape water from both sides of the hands simultaneously. It's the fastest way.
The Dyson Airblade Mk2 hand dryer is engineered to last. It has been repeatedly tested for durability and resilience to physical and chemical abuse. Dyson Airblade Mk2 hand dryers have also been exposed to real-life environments to ensure that they can withstand the pressures of high usage.
With strong construction and robust materials, the Dyson Airblade Mk2 hand dryer is suitable for high footfall, high usage locations where vandalism can be an issue. And because it uses filtered sheets of 430mph air to dry hands, there is no heating element prone to wear and failure.
Other hand dryers are unhygienic. They don't filter bacteria and viruses from the washroom air. They suck in dirty air then blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade Mk2 hand dryer uses a HEPA filter. 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the washroom air are captured. So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air.
Other hand drying methods can be expensive to run. Paper towels need constant re-stocking and disposal.
Dyson Airblade hand dryers produce at least 67% less CO2 than some other hand dryers and 62% less than paper towels.
