The View from The Shard
"The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers have a modern and sleek design that fits the general design of The View from The Shard very well."
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.
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.
Dries hands properly
Two high-speed sheets of air arranged in a V-configuration dry hands in just 12 seconds.⁺ “The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers are efficient and drying time has improved dramatically,” explains Sandy Clark, Operations Director.
At just four inches 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.
⁺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.
