Dyson Airblade launches hand dryer in ME
Dubai, November 22, 2010
The multi award-winning Dyson Airblade hand dryer is making its Middle East debut in the UAE at The Big 5.
It’s not just fast, but hygienic and efficient too – using far less energy than warm air hand dryers, a statement said.
“Instead of painfully slow evaporation, the Airblade hand dryer creates a high speed sheet of air, which literally scrapes water from hands in 10 seconds. It’s very quick and it’s very clean,” stated Dyson Airblade's James Dyson.
Warm air hand dryers use warm air to evaporate moisture. This takes too long and most people give up waiting and either wipe damp hands on clothes or leave with wet hands.
The Dyson Airblade hand dryer uses a 400mph sheet of unheated air to scrape water from hands like a windscreen wiper in 10 seconds. This filtered air is channeled through a 0.3 millimetre gap, no thicker than an eyelash.
This product is the first and only hand dryer to meet NSF Protocol 335 for a hygienic hand drying system. It is also certified by the British Skin Foundation and the Royal Institute of Public Health.
Warm air hand dryers use 60 year old technology that relies on evaporation to dry hands. Washroom air, which contains germs and is laden with bacteria, is heated up and blown onto people’s shoes, clothes and… freshly washed hands.
The Dyson Airblade hand dryer passes washroom air through a HEPA filter to remove over 99.9 per cent of bacteria from the air before it’s blown onto hands.
This hand dryer is powered by the long-life, revolutionary Dyson digital motor and uses far less energy than warm air hand dryers. It also offers significant running cost savings over warm air hand dryers and paper towels.
The Dyson Airblade hand dryer is also the first hand dryer to be awarded the Carbon Reduction Label from the Carbon Trust.
The Dyson Airblade hand dryer has been installed in well-known locations such as the Eiffel Tower, the London Eye, and Los Angeles International Airport.
In Dubai, it is being used at the Sanctuary Discotheque in the Atlantis - The Palm hotel and the Le Meridian Hotel near the international airport.-TradeArabia News Service
