Because of bulky motors, other hand dryers may protrude too far from the wall. They may have to be recessed into the wall, which can be costly. Because the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer uses the latest Dyson digital motor it is just 4 inches deep, so it complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It can be installed without additional recessing costs.
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 12 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.
Dries Each Hand Separately
Most hand dryers have one narrow column of air that can chase water around hands, missing areas and leaving wet patches. The Dyson Airblade V hand dryer uses two sheets of air that span the width of each hand to scrape off water like a windshield wiper.
12-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 V hand dryer dries hands hygienically in 12 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 V hand dryer uses two HEPA filters to remove 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. Only Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers are certified hygienic by independent public health specialists, NSF international. No other hand dryers meet every part of the NSF Protocol P335. As well as having a fast dry time and HEPA filters, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer also has touch-free operation and an antimicrobial additive. The sealed casing is infused with antimicrobial additives to protect the product.
Capacitive sensors activate air to dry hands. No dirty buttons to press.
Lowest Running 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 V hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run than other hand dryers per year, and up to 97% less than paper towels.
Low Impact on the Environment
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers produce at least 73% less CO2 than some other hand dryers and up to 69% less than recycled paper towels.
