Product Details

Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer, Model AB04


It's the fastest hand dryer – and it's hygienic too, cleaning the air before blowing it onto hands. And because it uses up to 80% less energy than warm air hand dryers, it costs less to run and is better for the environment.

Other hand dryers
Dyson is about developing new technology to solve everyday problems, such as hand dryers that are too slow and can take as long as 27 seconds to dry hands. It's because of their motors. They can't create enough airflow to remove water from hands effectively.
They can be unhygienic since they don't use a HEPA filter which removes 99.9% of bacteria from the air used to dry hands.

The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer
The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer works in just 12 seconds – scraping water from hands like a windshield wiper. It’s the fastest hand dryer, powered by the unique Dyson digital motor. A HEPA filter cleans the air before blowing it onto hands, so it’s also hygienic. And it uses up to 80% less energy than warm air hand dryers.

Features:

Fastest
Some warm air hand dryers take up to 27 seconds to dry hands. The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer works in just 12 seconds – with 400mph sheets of air literally scraping hands dry.

Hygienic
The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer is fitted with a HEPA filter – integrated with anti-microbial additives. It captures and eliminates 99.9% of bacteria from the air used to dry hands. It's the only hand dryer that's certified hygienic by independent public health specialist NSF International.

Costs less to run
Because it uses up to 80% less energy than a warm air hand dryer, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer costs less to run. It¹s also less expensive than paper towels. 22 people can dry their hands using a Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer for the price of a single paper towel.

Better for the environment
Warm air hand dryers use outdated, inefficient technology and typically require 2400 watts of power. Airblade™ technology consumes just 1400W. Combined with a 12-second drying time, the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer uses up to 80% less energy than warm air dryers. And avoids putting paper towel waste to landfill.

  • How it works:
    1. Dirty washroom air is sucked in by the Dyson digital motor.
    2. It passes through a HEPA filter, removing over 99.9% of the bacteria from the air used to dry hands.
    3. The clean air passes over the electronics, cooling them.
    4. The air then reaches the motor, which channels it up and through the machine.
    5. Air passes into the air ducts which are insulated to reduce noise.
    6. It’s then forced through two apertures – creating sheets of air travelling at 400mph. The two sheets of air literally scrape water from hands.
  • Inside the Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer
    1. Rapid hygienic drying
      Scrapes water from hands with a high-velocity sheet of air.
    2. Long-life, 1400 watt, energy efficient motor
      Uses digital pulse technology. Only three moving parts – no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
    3. Switched reluctance motor
      Digitally switched at up to 6,000 times per second, making the high-compression fan spin up to 81,000 times a minute.
    4. HEPA filtration
      HEPA filter removes and eliminates over 99.9% of bacteria from the air used to dry hands.
    5. Touch-free operation
      Infra-red sensor control for touch-free drying and minimal energy waste. Standby power consumption of only 1 watt for increased energy efficiency.
    6. Easy to clean
      Tough, sealed ergonomic design for easy cleaning and maintenance.
    7. Anti-microbial additives
      Anti-microbial coating on all external surfaces to protect the product.
    8. Robust and durable coating
      Resists chips and scratches.
  • Hygiene
    • Dirty air in, clean air out
      A HEPA filter removes 99.9% of bacteria from the air used to dry hands.
    • No hand rubbing
      Users don't need to rub their hands together. Bacteria in lower skin layers are therefore not brought to the surface.
    • Speed of drying
      The Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer takes just 12 seconds to dry hands.
    • Anti-microbial coating
      External surfaces are integrated with anti-microbial additives to protect the product.

The fan displays amazing curvarture and design. It truly carries jet wind up to 18X the wind it deploys. This is dyson's new technology and i hope dyson engineers will keep bringing more innovative products to the market. When I"m lying down on the bed and turn the multiplier fan on, it feels like I'm near the shore of the ocean. This fan is good for people who are stressed after a long day at work. This is my far the coolest fan at the market today and it deliviers what it says. Cons: When turned at the highest mode, the fan gets pretty loud like a small jet turbine, so when I go to sleep I turn to the lowest mode to keep me comfortable.

The construction and materials are very good. The instructions for assembly are clear and complete. Controls are fine. At low speed the fan is very quiet. The problem is at higher speed the noise not acceptable. It is difficult to be in the same room when it is on a setting above medium. Another problem is that since little or no air is pulled through the top opening, the fan is useless to place by a window to pull fresh air into the house. All things being equal it is more practical to use a conventional fan instead of the Dyson fan.

Dyson Fan

By ClayMI

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer:

We have had this fan for a couple of weeks now and have used it almost every day. So far the fan has worked really well in both our bedroom and living room. I do not see a noticeable difference in air put out between this and my old bladed fan on high. I like the simplicity and remote control that comes with the fan. The only down side is that the fan is a little noisier than expected at the highest setting.

A Product to Push Air

By Jeffrey

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer:

You have to remember, no matter what fan you buy, unless it has some sort of external/internal cooling system, it is just pushing hot air. Now, the Air-Multiplyer pedestal fan is something that does just that, though at a better pace. Many individual do not understand the point of the steady flow of air until they own it them self (Ill be honest, I was skeptical at first). A simple fan of same size costs nearly one-fourth the value of the AM03, though those fans never did the job as steady as the AM03 did - It had multiple speed functions, all ranging from quiet and to fast n' loud with rotation, but the way the air came out at me still sends shivers down my spine. The AM03 doesn't "chop" air at me in waves, but continuously sends a slow movement of the same current of air from the cold floor, up its metal turbines and out the spouts, creating a seamless stream of air that, unlike the chopping-fans, does not make me feel as if I am getting sicker. I have no other way to explain it; the air coming out of the AM03 actually feels like a breeze from an open meadow, a beach, a walk through the woods. The air feels real, not manufactured by some cheap machine. I love it and the feeling it creates when the air flows past me. As a full-time student in college with a full-time job, I honestly have no time to screw around. When I buy anything, I need it to work, do the job, and not break. With money being tight with bills on top of 5 classes of tuition and books, I really do not have the cash or the time to buy half-built products that do not do the job that is written on the side of the box. I was always frustrated by what other companies with machines that are measured on air-watts say they can accomplish, but never deliver. I finally sucked up my savings, and indulged my room with my first Dyson product. This is that product. This product alone made me a believer to spend the extra money for a product that will deliver what it stands behind on not only the box, but the customer support that comes with it. That being said, this unit proved to me to be a loyal Dyson customer, especially with me just now buying a DC44mk2 Limited (first vacuum I plan to keep for more than one month). If you need a fan, look no further than the AM line. It will change the way you think of fans forever. Though, head the warning, it gets loud cranked up at full blast. That is why I gave it a four. Though if you keep it at medium, it reaches about eight meters from the unit and you barely notice the noise.

Noisy and Defective

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer:

I received my fan today. I was able to put it together without any trouble. I like the airflow, but husband said it was lacking. Also, it is way too noisy on higher speeds. Biggest problem was that it wouldn't oscillate. I tried the unplugging bit, even disassembled and reassembled, still no oscillation. Called the help #, talked to a really nice person and - providing I can get the thing boxed back up - a UPS person will be here within 24 - 48 hrs to pick it up. Dyson will have a new fan shipped to me promptly. So customer service is doing their job - so far. I got this fan through my credit card rewards program not realizing at the time the actual retail cost of it. I doubt I would have paid such a high price for any fan, regardless of features. I selected it because of the "low noise" feature and hoped to put it by an open window in the bedroom for use in cooler months. I hope the replacement fan works like it should, I really like the bladeless feature, but will need the oscillation to work. For the price, it should. But, I'm really disappointed with the noise of it, and the quality of it.

AM03 FAN FITS THE BILL

By DCFISH2

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer:

I just got my new Dyson AM03 fan set up which is very simple to do in a few minutes and it distributes air fantastically and really helps to cool down my room. I love the remote control and the variable speeds available and the 2 year warranty only sweetens the deal. I would recommend this fan to anyone looking for a space saving, great functional fan for their home.

AM03 fan

Comments about Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer:

Nicely engineered and thought out product. Need little more air flow and total tilt for room circulation. Could be little more economical.

Pedestal Fan Better than it looks

By raycaron48

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer:

In addition to the expected excellent air movement that the fan provides, the gray/silver color is a nice change from the usual white for fans. Very quient. Glad we made the purchase, even if it was a little pricey...
