Dyson Airblade V Hand Dryer

  • With the new Dyson Airblade V hand dryer, the aim for Dyson’s acoustic engineers was to create a compact hand dryer for the washrooms of sound-sensitive spaces like offices, schools and restaurants without compromising the performance that makes Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers the fastest to dry hands hygienically.

    Thanks to acoustic engineering developments throughout the machine – including a reprogrammed digital motor and redesigned internal aerodynamic package – they were able to achieve a significant reduction in sound generated during operation.

    Which means the most hygienic hand dryer is now up to 35% quieter than its predecessor, yet still dries hands fast – in just 12 seconds.
