"The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers have enabled the Fox Theatre to reduce our carbon emissions by almost 80%."
Opened in the 1920s, Atlanta's Fox Theatre has survived demolition to become an iconic entertainment venue. The Fox hosts many types of events such as Broadway shows, trade shows, weddings, concerts, and corporate meetings.
The Fox Theatre continually seeks new and innovative technologies. As well as reducing the environmental impact of hand towels and inefficient dryers, the theatre wanted to speed up restroom times during short intermissions. As a part of the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge, a Presidential initiative to make commercial buildings 20% more energy efficient by 2020, the Fox looked to find a better hand drying solution.
