Wellington Airport previously used warm hand dryers and paper towels. Their motivations for changing hand drying method were to find a more environmentally sustainable form of hand drying, also wanting to avoid the slip hazard that can result from water on the floor.
Project Architect, Katherine Skipper explains. "The Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry provided the perfect solution for the problems they were having with water on the floor and constant restocking of paper towels."
Improved user experience and less maintenance
Using Dyson Wash+Dry products has significantly improved the experience of the travellers through the airport. Reduced water on the floor and paper towel mess.
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.
