The View from The Shard case study

Dyson Airblade V mounted to the wall

The business

The View from The Shard is a 360° viewing platform that spans four floors near the top of The Shard in London – Western Europe’s tallest building.

Old fashioned hand dryers attached to wall

The problem

Warm air hand dryers had been installed in The View from The Shard's public washrooms, but they were not considered effective enough at drying hands.

The business also felt the design of the hand dryers did not reflect well on the building's cutting-edge architectural and design status.

The solution

  • Dries hands properly

    Two high-speed sheets of air arranged in a V-configuration dry hands in just 12 seconds.¹ “The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers are efficient and drying time has improved dramatically,” explains Sandy Clark, Operations Director.

  • Saves space

    At just 10 cm deep, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer’s slim profile takes up less space in the washroom. “Guests also feel that the new hand dryers are higher quality than hand dryers they have used elsewhere,” adds Sandy.
