Washroom air can contain microscopic particles, including bacteria and viruses
That's why all Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers always use HEPA filters. Proven to capture 99.95% of particles,1 including bacteria and viruses.2 And drying your hands with HEPA-purified air, not dirty air.
Fast, hygienic hand drying
Leaving a washroom with damp hands is likely to transmit up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands.3 So drying hands effectively is just as important as washing them.
Which is why Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers have a 10-14 second dry time,4 and are proven to reduce the transfer of bacteria on hands by up to 40%.5
Dry without heat, using HEPA-purified air
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers have been proven to be as hygienic in drying hands as paper towels,6 but without the environmental damage or high usage costs.7
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers use high-power jets of HEPA purified air to scrape water from your hands.
Only Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers offer all of these benefits
