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 only 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. The University looked to their architects to find a solution that would save costs compared to the purchase of hand towels, and that would combat the hygiene and safety issues of water across the washroom floors.
Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers.
A more sustainable campus.
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. Following a one-off installation for UWA to trial the product, UWA reported that the feedback from maintenance staff, cleaners and washroom patrons was positive, with many being impressed with the results. Immediately after the trial, Dyson provided training to the installers who handled all 60 bathrooms, achieving a seamless fitting of the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers at the University campus.
