Dry with HEPA-purified air.
Not dirty air.
Fast, hygienic hand dryers.
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 99.97% of particles,¹ including bacteria and viruses. 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.² 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,³ and are proven to reduce the transfer of bacteria on hands by up to 40%.⁴
Dry without heat, using HEPA-purified air
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers have been proven to be as hygienic in drying hands as paper towels,⁵ but without the environmental damage or high usage costs.⁶
Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers only use high-power jets of HEPA-purified air to scrape water from your hands.
Proven hygienic by independent testing
All Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers undergo rigorous testing by Dyson. The impact of drying hands has been tested in universities and published in international journals. The Dyson Airblade V and dB hand dryers have NSF P335 certification. Dyson Airblade dB and Wash+Dry have HACCP industry certification for use in food preparation environments.
