Soldier Field case study
"The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer brings multiple benefits to Soldier Field – less paper towel usage, cleaner washrooms and cost savings."
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 restrooms under considerable strain.
Fast dry time
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer takes 12 seconds to dry hands.¹
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.
Low 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.²
