American football stadium Soldier Field was built in the early 1920s to commemorate US soldiers lost at war. Today, it’s an iconic venue for the city of Chicago, continuing to host football alongside a range of other sports and events.
With over 1.5 million spectators visiting Solider Field annually, cleaning up discarded paper towels and constant dispenser restocking was placing washrooms under considerable strain.
Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers.
Airblade™ technology doesn’t rely on consumables like paper to dry hands. Instead, it generates two high velocity sheets of air that scrape water from hands quickly and hygienically. So there’s no mess, and no restocking.
“Having a clean restroom for patrons when they come to our facility is one of the most important things for us,” explains Michael Ortman, Director of Operations.
Lower running costs
A Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer can dry up to 18 pairs of hands for the price of a single paper towel. As a result, Soldier Field has reduced its paper towel expenses by more than $12,000 each year.6
Switching from paper towels has helped further reduce Soldier Field’s carbon footprint. Per dry, Airblade™ technology generates just 3.3g of CO2 – compared to 13.9g of CO2 per dry for paper towels.6
