“To date, we've replaced 59 warm air hand dryers with Airblade™ technology. And we're in the process of replacing 54 more.”

The problem

The O2 was using 2.3kW warm air hand dryers. "They were simply too slow and used too much energy for a venue of our size and footfall," explains Lee.

The solution

Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers.

The fastest hand dryers

430 mph sheets of air scrape water from hands, drying them hygienically in just 10 seconds. "At last, we're seeing our customers exit the toilets without wiping their hands on their clothes!" says Lee.

Costs less to run

Most hand dryers are slow, so they're energy-hungry. Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers cost up to 69% less to run than other hand dryers.

50% quieter

The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is 50% quieter than the original Dyson Airblade ™ hand dryer, but dries hands just as quickly. Lee explains, "Along with the sleek design and performance, the reduced noise levels made our decision very easy."
