Soldier field

The business

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.

Two hand towel dispensers side by side

The problem

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.

The solution

Fast dry time
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer takes 12 seconds to dry hands.⁺

Less maintenance
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.¹

⁺Dry time determined using Dyson test method 769 based on NSF P335 using a measurement of 0.1g residual moisture.

¹Usage based on 2 paper towels per dry (data from Dyson internal research –Sept 2008). Calculations include standby power. Cost based on average paper towel cost of $0.01 and an electricity charge of $0.10 per kWh (source: US Department of Energy). Paper towel dispenser, warm air hand dryer, and Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer purchase costs are excluded from comparison. Dry times calculated using Dyson test method 769 based on NSF protocol P335 using a measurement of 0.1g residual moisture.

*Electricity prices as of April 2017. For more information, visit our calculations page.

**The environmental impact of electrical appliances and paper towels was measured by Carbon Trust. The calculations were produced using the software Footprint Expert Pro, based on product use over 5 years and using weighted averages of individual countries of use. Dry times for product were evaluated using DTM 769.
