The University of Western Australia
The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a globally acclaimed campus based in Perth and open to over 25,000 students and the public.
The University is open every day to thousands of people and its bathrooms in particular have an extremely high footfall. Paper towels, in combination with a few hand dryers, led to considerable unwanted mess and complaints, which in turn also incurred a high, ongoing cost to supply hand towels to all campus bathrooms.
Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers. Ferguson Architects, who were tasked to refurbish the UWA upgrade suggested the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers as the preferred product to install across the 60 bathrooms, due to its combined water tap and hand dryer capabilities.
Faster dry times
Thanks to a 14 second dry time, customers don't have to wait as long in the washroom, and they no longer leave with damp hands – a hygiene hazard.
With Airblade technology in a tap, hands are washed and dried at the sink, so no water is dripped on the floor.
With hand washing and drying now in the same place, valuable washroom space is now available for additional baby changing facilities.
