The Dyson Airblade Tap further improves upon the company’s innovative hand dryers
Dyson is best known as the maker of powerful bagless vacuum cleaners and the “Air Multiplier” bladeless fans. But many consumers don’t realize that Dyson also makes an innovative restroom hand-dryer, known as the Airblade. The Dyson Airblade subverts the thinking behind traditional air hand dryers, which use heated but slow-moving air to dry your hands. Instead, the Airblade shoots air out of a pair of opposing slots at nearly 400 miles per hour. These curtains of powerful air envelope your hands, squeegeeing the water off in just 12 seconds. The process is more sanitary and energy-efficient than normal hand dryers, and more environmentally-friendly than using paper towels.
We thought it was a pretty awesome concept, enough to not only carry the Dyson Airblade, but also install it in all of our store bathrooms. Well, Dyson has spent the last few years making the Airblade even better. They did this by integrating the drying technology right into an automatic faucet to create the Dyson Airblade Tap.
