Dyson upright vacuums

Inventions that set Dyson vacuums apart

Dyson cyclones capture more dirt and microscopic dust than any other cyclone

They’re so efficient that they capture pollen, mold spores and even bacteria – particles that can clog conventional vacuum cleaner bags and filters.

Patented cyclone technology

There are other bagless vacuums that use cyclones. But inefficient cyclones allow dust to pass right through, onto the filter, clogging it and causing a loss of suction during use.

Dyson cyclones are more efficient than any other. They generate centrifugal forces of up to 313,000G, hurling dust and dirt from the airflow straight into the clear bin.

Self-adjusting cleaner head – for carpets and hard floors

There’s no need to turn awkward dials or press buttons. Dyson cleaner heads adjust automatically to every floor type – sealing in the suction.

Active base plate

The cleaner heads on most upright vacuums need to be manually adjusted for different floor types. If this isn't done, a gap is created between the cleaner head and the floor, and suction is lost.

The latest Dyson upright vacuums have an active base plate that ‘floats’ on every floor type. It maintains close contact with the floor at all times, automatically raising and lowering. Suction isn't wasted – it’s sealed in.

Brush bars that can gently remove fine dust from hard floors

In addition to having nylon bristles for carpet, our brush bars have a row of anti-static carbon fiber filaments. These remove the fine dust that gets stuck to hard floors.

Conductive carbon fiber filaments

The brush bars of most vacuums only contain nylon bristles. While these loosen dirt from carpets, they can damage hard floors and delicate surfaces. So, the brush bar has to be switched off, which means that fine dust held to hard floors by static can be left behind.

Dyson brush bars are different. They have a row of anti-static carbon fibre filaments, as well as nylon bristles. The filaments remove the static charge holding the dust to the floor, and allow it to be sucked up into the vacuum. Only the soft carbon fibre filaments come into contact with hard floors because they’re longer than the nylon bristles. So, the brush bar can be left switched on without damaging hard floors, and more fine dust is removed.

Better Filtration with a Dyson Cyclone

Ideal for allergy sufferers

Our machines expel air that’s cleaner than the air you breathe – without relying on the filters to do all of the work. The highest efficiency cyclones and airtight seals make Dyson vacuums ideal for allergy sufferers.

Mould spores

Advanced filtration technology

Other vacuums often have inefficient cyclones, which means that microscopic particles like mold spores and pollen make their way through to the filter. And sometimes the filter and the airways around it aren't sealed sufficiently to be airtight – meaning that these allergens and other microscopic particles are thrown back into the home.

Dyson vacuums have the most efficient cyclones and all of the airways and the filter housing are sealed and airtight. So, what goes into the vacuum goes into the clear bin – not back into the home.

Upright turning on a ball

Rides on a ball – turns smoothly on a dime

There are no wheels, so there’s no awkward ‘back and forth’ maneuvering required. Instead, our vacuums can be steered around furniture and into difficult places with a simple turn of the wrist.

Ball™ technology – a dynamic turning circle

Fixed wheels are not designed to turn corners. But a ball can turn on the spot. As the ball’s axis is tilted, its turning circle tightens – allowing full and accurate steering control.

The vacuum’s key components have been engineered to fit inside the ball itself. This gives the machine a streamlined profile, allowing access to tight spaces and lowering its center of gravity to make it lighter in the hand.
