Questionable reports are being produced by paper towel and cotton roll towel manufacturers regarding the hygienic qualities of Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers. Watch the video to discover the truth about the methodologies used to obtain some of the results and learn about the important facts of hand drying hygiene.
Dyson is hygienic,
economical and ecological.
The paper towel industry claim that Dyson hand dryers increase bacteria counts on hands. But in fact, Airblade™ technology dries hands hygienically in just 10-12 seconds - reducing the transfer of bacteria on hands by up to 40%.
The Dyson digital motor V4 is one of the world's smallest full-integrated 1600W motors. It spins 90,000 times a minute, and is the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to make Airblade™ technology possible.
Paper towel manufacturers claim that Dyson hand dryers add more bacteria into the washroom air. But thanks to HEPA filters as standard, Airblade™ technology captures 99.9% of bacteria from the air used to dry hands.
The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer uses a HEPA filter to capture 99.9% of bacteria from the air used to dry hands. It has a grille to capture larger debris, a fleece layer to capture fluff and fibres, and a pleated HEPA media to capture particles as small as 0.1 microns.
The paper towel industry claim that the surface of a Dyson hand dryer is more contaminated with bacteria than a paper towel dispenser. But with an antibacterial additive in its surface coating, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer helps to prevent the growth of bacteria.
Every Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer has antibacterial protection integrated into its exterior coating. This additive is designed to help prevent bacteria and mould growth for the life time of the machine - making the surface more hygienic to touch and helping to protect against odours and staining.
