With Airblade™ technology in a tap, hands can be dried at the sink in 14 seconds.
There's no need to move to a separate hand drying area.
"In restrooms using conventional taps, you'll need to move to a separate hand drying area, dripping water on the floors as you go. It's why we've developed a tap with our hand drying technology in it."
- James Dyson, Inventor
Suitable for minimalistic washrooms – new or fully refurbished

Important: Sink Specifications
The Dyson Airblade™ Tap is compatible with most sink types. Ensure plugs are not installed in the sinks.
Recommended sink dimensions: All sink measurements are internal unless stated otherwise.
Width of sink – Minimum: 13-3/4”
Front to back – Minimum: 11-3/4”
Depth of sink – Minimum: 4”
Depth of sink – Maximum for AB10 only:
7-3/4” (external measurement)
Sink materials: Sinks with highly polished surfaces should be avoided, e.g. shiny chrome. Porcelain and brushed metal are acceptable.
No water on the floor
Moving to a separate hand drying area with wet hands, means that water can be dripped on the floor. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer, water isn't dripped on the floor because you don't need to leave the sink with wet hands.
Dyson Digital Motor V4
The Dyson digital motor V4 was 7 years in the making, and it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1400W motors. It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 28 liters of air a second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 14 seconds. This long-life, energy-efficient motor is digitally switched at 6,100 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 92,000 times a minute. There are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
14-Second Drying Time
Testing based on the National Sanitation Foundation's Protocol P335 (NSF P335) shows that most other hand dryers are much slower than their manufacturers claim. Many people give up when using a slow hand dryer – but damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands. Testing based on NSF Protocol P335, proves that Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers are the fastest. The Dyson Airblade TAP hand dryer dries hands hygienically in 14 seconds.
The Most Hygienic Hand Dryer
Most other hand dryers are unhygienic. They don't filter bacteria from the restroom air. They suck in dirty air then blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses a HEPA filter removing 99.97% of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air used to dry hands. So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air.
Both water and air are sensor operated so there are no taps to turn, or buttons to touch. Intelligent, infrared sensors emit light to pinpoint hand positions. Computer circuitry coordinates the information and initiates the appropriate response of water or air without long delays.
Controlled water flow rate and sensor operation can help save water.
Quick to Clean
Smooth, stainless steel exterior, wipes down directly over the sink – no separate hand dryers to clean.
Saves Wall and Floor Space
Paper towel dispensers and hand dryers take up valuable wall and floor space in public restrooms. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer there is no need for additional hand drying areas. Room is available for extra toilet cubicles to reduce congestion; or the restroom can be more compact.
Lowest Operating Costs
Most other hand drying methods are expensive to run. Paper towels need restocking and disposal. Most other hand dryers are slow, and many use a heating element, so they're energy-hungry. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run per year than other hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels. And of course there are no separate taps to buy.
Low Impact on the Environment
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers produce at least 67% less CO2 than some other hand dryers, and 62% less than paper towels.
