Dyson Airblade Case Studies

 


The O2
The entertainment district in Greenwich, London is home to the O2, the world's busiest arena, with over 2 million visitors every year.
 
The O2 Airblade case study
 

The problem

The O2 was using 2.3kW warm air hand dryers. "They were simply too slow and used too much energy for a venue of our size and footfall," explains Lee.

 

The solution

Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers.


Fast dry time

430 mph sheets of air scrape water from hands, drying them hygienically in just 10 seconds. "At last, we're seeing our customers exit the toilets without wiping their hands on their clothes!" says Lee.


Costs less to run

Most hand dryers are slow, so they're energy-hungry. Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers cost up to 69% less to run than other hand dryers.6


50% quieter

The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is 50% quieter than the original Dyson Airblade ™ hand dryer, but dries hands just as quickly. Lee explains, "Along with the sleek design and performance, the reduced noise levels made our decision very easy."



The View from The Shard
Western Europe’s tallest building is The Shard in London. The View from The Shard is a 360° viewing platform that spans four floors near the top.
 
The View from The Shard Airblade case study
 

The problem

Warm air hand dryers had been installed in The View from The Shard’s public washrooms, but they were not considered effective enough at drying hands.

The business also felt the design of the hand dryers did not reflect well on the building’s cutting-edge architectural and design status.

 

The solution

Dyson Airblade V hand dryers


Dries hands properly

Two high-speed sheets of air arranged in a V-configuration dry hands in just 10 seconds. “The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers are efficient and drying time has improved dramatically,” explains Sandy Clark, Operations Director.


Saves space

At just four inches deep, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer’s slim profile takes up less space in the washroom. “Guests also feel that the new hand dryers are higher quality than hand dryers they have used elsewhere,” adds Sandy.

 
 
 
Coca-Cola London Eye Airblade case study
 

The problem

Poor washroom experience.

Rob Osborne, Architect: “The existing toilets were very tired and didn’t match the iconic feel of the London Eye.”
Their out-dated conventional hand dryers looked low-tech, caused queues due to their long dry times and resulted in water on the washroom floor as customers moved from the sink.
As a global engineering landmark, the Coca-Cola London Eye’s washrooms weren’t delivering the wow-factor to match.

 
 

The solution

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer

 

Cleaner washrooms

 With Airblade™ technology in a tap, hands are washed and dried at the sink, so no water is dripped on the floor.


Faster dry times

Thanks to a 12 second dry time, customers don’t have to wait as long in the washroom, and they no longer leave with damp hands – a hygiene hazard.

 

More space

With hand washing and drying now in the same place, valuable washroom space is now available for additional baby changing facilities.

Gloucester Services Airblade case study
 

The problem

Joshua Jackson, Facilities Manager: “With high footfall, dry time was a big factor to avoid queues – as was having something robust and reliable.” “We’ve also designed our washrooms with a premium aesthetic, so we wanted a hand dryer that was quiet and unobtrusive to reflect this.”

 


The solution

Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers.

 

Quick and hygienic

Hands dried in 10 seconds using HEPA filtered air.


Low environmental impact 

“It’s nice that the Dyson hand dryers help us minimise our carbon footprint.” Airblade™ technology uses up to 79% less CO2 than other hand dryers and up to 76% less than paper towels 6

50% quieter 

The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer has been acoustically re-engineered. It’s now 50% quieter than the original Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer.

 

Robust

“With high traffic, we can’t afford to have a hand dryer out of action. So the durability of the Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is very important.”

 

Positive user experience

“Fits with our premium washroom look. They’re also easy to use and customers really enjoy them.”

 
 
Welcome Break Airblade case study
 

The problem

With washrooms in operation around the clock, the reliability of Welcome Break’s existing hand dryers, and the technical support offered by the manufacturer, were both causing issues.


“In general, there was at least one hand dryer out of action at most sites,” explains Simon Peene, Property and Safety Manager. “Fully functioning, high quality washroom facilities are a fundamental part of the services we offer.”

 

Quick and easy maintenance

Thanks to its innovative backplate installation, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer can be replaced quickly and safely without a qualified electrician. “Our site teams can easily exchange units following the instructions provided,” adds Simon.


60% smaller

With concentrated Airblade™ technology, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer is 60% smaller than the original Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer. It saves valuable space in the washroom, but still dries hands hygienically in just 10 seconds.

Simple installation

Dyson’s aim was to minimise disruption to the public and ensure that the transition to the new units was expertly planned and implemented. Senior Unit Business Manager Tracy Pollard was delighted with the installation, “Great communication, great interaction, great teamwork.”


Serpentine Galleries
One of London’s best-loved modern and contemporary art galleries is The Serpentine Sackler Gallery It is part of The Serpentine, which attracts up to 1.2 million visitors a year.
 
Serpentine Galleries Airblade case study
 

The problem

Working with the renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, The Serpentine considered every detail of the building during the gallery’s design – and this extended to their choice of hand dryers.


“We wanted our washrooms to be clean, hygienic places – free from paper and mess,” say the Serpentine Galleries. “And we didn’t want guests to have to wait with dripping hands to use slow hand dryers.”

 

The solution

Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers.


Fast dry time

Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer dries hands in just 12 seconds.


Hygienic

With a HEPA filter, the air used to dry hands is 99.9% bacteria-free. And sensor-operated water and air reduces contact with contaminated surfaces in the washroom.


No messy paper towels

Discarded paper towels can create a negative impression of washroom cleanliness. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer there’s no paper, and no mess.

Broad Oak Ashford MINI
The family-run Barretts Motor Group is now in its third generation. It’s been involved in the motor business in the South East since 1902 and has now expanded across the Kent area.

Mini Airblade case study
 

The problem

The Broad Oak washrooms used to have paper towels. But these were expensive to run, requiring constant restocking and disposal. And like other conventional hand drying methods, water was dripped on clean washroom floors creating an unsightly mess.

 

The solution

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer.


No water on the floor

With Airblade™ technology in a tap, hands are washed and dried at the sink – so there’s no water on the floor.

“We aim to provide the highest levels of customer satisfaction throughout the dealership,” explains Shaun Bannon, Brand Director, “and that includes having washrooms that are smart, clean and efficient.”


Low maintenance

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer cuts down maintenance time – no paper means there are no empty dispensers to restock, and no discarded towels to tidy up.


Low running costs

Airblade™ technology costs up to 97% less to run than paper towels and 69% less than other hand dryers. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer dries 15 pairs of hands for the price of a single paper towel.6

 
The Idle Rocks Airblade case study
 

The problem

Following extensive renovation and refurbishment, David and his wife were looking to update their new hotel’s washrooms with simple and eye-catching facilities.

 

The solution

Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers.


Airblade™ technology in a tap

With Airblade™ technology in a tap, hands can be both washed and dried at the sink. “It’s a logical extension to hand dryers,” explains David. “It makes sense to have everything in one place – it simplifies the whole process of washing and drying hands.”


Cleaner washrooms

Other hand dryers are positioned away from washing facilities – causing water to drip from wet hands and onto the floor as washroom users move from the sink to the drying area. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer, there’s no need for a separate drying area, so washrooms can be kept cleaner.

Fast dry time

Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses two high-velocity sheets of air to scrape water from hands like windscreen wipers – drying them hygienically in just 12 seconds.

 

Arena Corinthians
Arena Corinthians is one of the largest and most successful football clubs in Brazil and home to the Corinthians. The Arena Corinthians sports stadium regularly welcomes over 47,000 sports fans - and hosted six matches during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
 
Arena Corinthians Airblade case study
 
The problem

 

Events at the stadium attract large visitor numbers, placing extremely high pressure on washroom facilities. So operations manager Lúcio Blanco needed fast drying performance, while architect Anibal Couthinho was searching for a design that reflected the venue’s premier status.

 

The solution

Dyson Airblade V hand dryers.


Fast dry time

Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands, but Airblade™ technology dries hands hygienically in just 10 seconds. “The public need to leave the washroom fast, so we needed a hand dryer that was also fast. In this case, Dyson was essential,” explains Lúcio.


Striking design

At Dyson, form always follows function – and a new way to dry hands has resulted in a machine that looks just as unique. “Arena Corinthians offers exclusive spaces and services,” explains Anibal, “so we wanted to make a statement to show our clients, supporters and corporate members that they’re in a totally different environment and experiencing new technology.”


Low environmental impact

Unlike paper towels, which require constant restocking and disposal of consumables, Dyson Airblade V hand dryers use high velocity sheets of air to dry hands – generating up to 74% less CO2per dry.6 “The use of paper towels didn’t fit with the sustainable vision of the stadium so were discounted straight away,” adds Lúcio.


Keflavik Airport
Keflavik Airport, Iceland provides a natural link between North America and Europe, and prides itself on delivering a modern, streamlined travel experience.

Keflavik Airport Airblade case study
 

 

The problem

 

“We wanted to create a functional, hygienic and elegant user experience,” explains the terminal’s architect, Elin Kjartansdóttir. “The old-fashioned dryers take a long time, and do a bad job. We also didn’t want to see water or paper towels on the floor.”

The solution


No water on the floor

With Airblade™ technology in a tap, there’s no need to move
to a separate drying area, so no water is dripped on the floor.


No paper towel mess

Discarded paper towels can create a negative impression of washroom
cleanliness. “The taps go well with the whole design, and the washrooms
still look nice after rush hour – no mess or water dripped on the floor,” adds Elin.


Fast dry times

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses two sheets of air travelling at 430mph to
dry hands completely in 12 seconds. “Passengers really like it,” explains Elin, “they
know their hands will be clean and dry and there’s no walking around with wet hands.”


Hygienic

Water and air are sensor-operated, so there are no taps to turn, or buttons to touch.
A HEPA filter captures 99.9% of bacteria and viruses from the washroom air.

The problem

 

“We were using a combination of warm air dryers and paper towels, but maintaining a clean washroom was difficult,” explains Richard Gould, Chief Executive. 


“Water dripped on the floor, and the paper towels required constant restocking and bin emptying to avoid mess. Our warm air dryers were slow and it was all expensive to run.”

 
The solution

Low running costs

Airblade™ technology costs up to 97% less to run than paper towels and 69% less than other hand dryers. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer dries 15 pairs of hands for the price of a single paper towel.6


No water on the floor

With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer there’s no need to move to a separate drying area, so no water is dripped on the floor – leaving washrooms cleaner.

“We always like innovation,” adds Richard, “even with something as everyday as hand washing and drying.”

No paper towel mess

Discarded paper towels can create a negative impression of washroom cleanliness. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses two high-speed sheets of air to dry hands. There’s no paper, and no mess.

 

Fast dry times

Hands are dried hygienically at the sink in just 12 seconds. Some other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds.

The solution

Dyson Airblade V hand dryers.


Fast dry time

Using concentrated Airblade™ technology, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer scrapes all the water from hands in just 10 seconds.


Slim and compact profile

Low running costs

With no energy-hungry heating element, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run than warm air hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels.6


5 year guarantee

“The five year guarantee is very attractive for such a high footfall business,” explains Jonathan. “The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer is also easy to install and tough enough to cope with continuous use.”

 
Soldier Field Airblade case study
 

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

Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers.


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.

“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.
