The Dyson Airblade has become an industry phenomenon and here we look at how it’s changing our environment.
A recent research paper written by scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology reveals that paper towels are the most environmentally damaging hand drying solution that business owners can choose for their lavatories, whilst the high efficiency hand dryers such as the Dyson Airblade are the most eco friendly options.
The Dyson Airblade emits cold air instead of warm air but provides a fast and effective way of drying, quicker and better than most traditional hand dryers. With up to 80% increase in efficiency than conventional warm air devices, the Dyson Airblade has already won several awards including Best Overall Product at Interbuild 2007 and Best Workplace Product Innovation.
It is also certified with the Carbon Reduction Label making it a smarter, more effective choice than paper towels or warm dryers, which were found to generate at least 70% more carbon emissions than Dyson’s amazing technology.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology research paper, which was supported by Dyson, also helps to compare the environmental impact of products by making them easier to interpret, which is crucial with the ever growing problems of global warming.
How is the Dyson Airblade Different
The Dyson Airblade is also the first one to ever meet the NSF Protocol, making it a leader in bathroom and public toilet hygiene. For cleanliness and energy efficiency, businesses will see many benefits in replacing traditional dryers with this new technology.
The features include:
- Fast drying action – dries hands as fast as 10 seconds (traditional dryers are around 35 seconds).
- Lower energy consumption – with cold air rather than hot air and also a fast drying action, energy consumption is much lower than traditional hand dryers.
- Anti bacterial – the Dyson Airblade sucks in air through a special filter which is designed to hospital standard and this gets rid of 99.9% of bacteria on your hands, making it the most hygienic dryer around.
- It is the only dryer in the world to be approved by the Royal Institute of Public Health and the British Skin Foundation.
