Opened in 1989, Vancouver’s Science World museum aims to engage British Columbians in science and to inspire future science and technology leadership throughout the province.
"Science World works hard to educate our audience and staff about environmental responsibility. Installing Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers is a reflection of our commitment to the environment."
“Science World was spending a lot of money on paper towels,” explains facilities manager Ismail Vohra, “so we were looking for a cost cutting measure that was also environmentally responsible.”
Fast dry time
Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands. The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer uses two high-velocity sheets of air to scrape water from hands in 12 seconds.⁺
Lower environmental impact
Up to 71% less expensive to run than other hand dryers. Up to 97% less than paper towels, with up to 78% less CO₂. Creating a better environment in your washrooms and in the world outside.***
Lower running costs
With a fast dry time and no heating element, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers also have the lowest operating costs - they cost up to 71% less to operate per year than other hand dryers.*
⁺Dry time determined using Dyson test method 769 based on NSF P335 to a measurement of 0.1g residual moisture.
***The environmental impact of electrical appliances and paper towels was measured by Carbon Trust. The calculations were produced using the software Footprint Expert Pro, based on product use over 5 years and using weighted averages of individual countries of use. Dry times for product were evaluated using DTM 769.
