Proven hygienic. No matter what the industry.
The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer and Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer have NSF P335 certification for Hygienic Commercial Hand Dryers. And, both the Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer and Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry hand dryer are certified suitable for food preparation environments by HACCP International – which is key for the food and beverage industry. So, Dyson hand dryers can safely meet your hygiene operational needs.
The scientific facts
Dries hands with cleaner air.
The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer's HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the washroom air, before it's blown onto hands. So hands are dried with cleaner air, not dirty air.
The only hand dryers with Airblade™ technology.
Powered by the Dyson digital motor V4, Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers force out sheets of filtered air at up to 420mph, literally scraping water from hands.
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers reduce the transfer of bacteria on hands.
The paper towel industry claims that Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers increase bacteria counts on hands. But in fact, Airblade™ technology dries hands hygienically in just 12-14 seconds⁺ – reducing the transfer of bacteria on hands by up to 40%.
The HEPA filter removes airborn particles from the air. It has a grill to capture larger debris, a fleece layer to capture fluff and fibers and a pleated HEPA media to capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.
Handles drying quicker.
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer takes just 12 seconds to dry hands.⁺ So users spend less time in your washrooms, making them easier to manage, especially at busy times.
Helps prevent bacteria growth.
The paper towel industry claims the surface of a Dyson hand dryer is more contaminated with bacteria than a paper towel dispenser. However, the University of Florida study shows that surface contaminants are not unique to hand dryers and can be found on almost all touch points in a washroom, including faucets, door handles, sinks and even paper towel dispensers. In fact, the Dyson Airblade V dryer and Dyson Airblade dB dryer have an antimicrobial additive integrated into the exterior coating. With proper cleaning and maintenance, this additive helps prevent the growth of bacteria and mold on the surface of the hand dryers.
