Case study

Serpentine Galleries

Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers in situ

The business

The Serpentine Sackler Gallery is part of The Serpentine, one of London’s best-loved modern and contemporary art galleries, which attracts up to 1.2 million visitors a year.

Conventional hand dryers

The problem

Working with the renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, The Serpentine considered every detail of the building during the gallery’s design – and this extended to their choice of hand dryers.

“We wanted our washrooms to be clean, hygienic places – free from paper and mess,” say the Serpentine Galleries. “And we didn’t want guests to have to wait with dripping hands to use slow hand dryers.”

The solution

  • Faster dry times
    Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer dries hands in just 12 seconds.

  • Hygienic
    With a HEPA filter, the air used to dry hands is 99.95% bacteria-free.¹ And sensor-operated water and air reduces contact with contaminated surfaces in the washroom.

  • No messy paper towels
    Discarded paper towels can create a negative impression of washroom cleanliness. With the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer there’s no paper, and no mess.
