Dyson Airblade dB Gray Hand Dryer - AB14
Airblade™ technology combined with the Dyson digital motor V4 creates high
speed sheets of air. The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is the fastest way to
dry hands. It is suitable for all restrooms, particularly where sound levels
are an important consideration.
- 50% Quieter When working to make the Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer
quieter than the original Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer, Dyson engineers focused
on reducing sound from two key sources:
- Reduced air rush noise Airblade™ technology results in air traveling
at 420 mph through apertures measuring just 0.3 mm in width. Some noise is
inevitable. Dyson engineers have reduced the noise produced by the sheets
of air by redesigning the shape of the apertures through which air is forced.
- Reduced motor noise Dyson acoustic engineers have made improvements
to the level and the quality of the sound generated by the Dyson digital motor
- Dyson digital motor V4 The Dyson digital motor V4 was seven years
in the making - it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1400W motors.
It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 9.25 gallons of
air per second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 12 seconds. This
long-life, energy-efficient motor is digitally-switched at 6,100 times per
second, making the high compression fan spin 92,000 times a minute. There
are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes
to wear down.
- 12 second dry time Testing based on NSF Protocol P335 shows that
most other hand dryers are much slower than their manufacturers claim. Many
people give up when using a slow hand dryer. But damp hands can spread up
to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands. Testing based on NSF P335 proves
that Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers are the fastest. The Dyson Airblade dB hand
dryer dries hands hygienically in 12 seconds. Airblade technology™ combined
with the Dyson digital motor V4 creates high speed sheets of air that scrape
water from both sides of the hands simultaneously. It's the fastest way. For
more information on NSF P335.
- Tough and durable The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is engineered
to last. It has been repeatedly tested for durability and resilience to physical
and chemical abuse. Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers have also been exposed to
real-life environments to ensure that they can withstand the pressures of
high usage. With strong construction and robust materials, the Dyson Airblade
dB hand dryer is suitable for high traffic, high-usage locations where vandalism
can be an issue. And because it uses filtered sheets of 420 mph air to dry
hands, there is no heating element prone to wear and failure. video-icon
- The most hygienic hand dryer Most other hand dryers are unhygienic.
They don't filter bacteria from the restroom air. They suck in dirty air then
blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer uses a HEPA filter
to remove 99.97% of bacteria at 0.3 microns from the air used to dry hands.
So hands are dried using cleaner air, not dirty air. Image showing dirty washroom

- Lowest running costs Most other hand drying methods are expensive
to run. Paper towels need restocking and disposal. Most other hand dryers
are slow, and many use a heating element, so they're energy-hungry. The Dyson
Airblade dB hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run than other hand dryers
per year, and up to 97% less than paper towels.
- NSF approved No other hand dryer meets every part of NSF Protocal
P335. The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer dries hands in just 12 seconds. It’s
the fastest hand dryer. It also has touch-free operation, uses a HEPA filter
and has a lifetime antimicrobial coating to protect the product.
- Approved by HACCP International The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer
has been approved by HACCP International as safe for use in the food and beverage
industry. "The technology addresses a number of unacceptable risks posed by
hand dryers in the past. It's easy to clean and is a touch-free system. It
also has a fast dry cycle. With the inclusion of a HEPA filter, these features
combine to considerably reduce the risk of microbiological contamination and
thereby meet HACCP international's food safety criteria."
