Wash and dry hands at the sink. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer takes 12 seconds to dry hands. So users spend less time in the washroom, and busy periods are easier to manage. Every second, up to 35 litres of air are forced through apertures up to 0.8 mm wide. The result 690km/h sheets of air that scrape water from hands. The HEPA filter removes airborne particles from the air. It has a grille to capture larger debris, a fleece layer to capture fluff and fibres, and a pleated HEPA media to capture particles as small as 0.1 microns. There’s no need for users to move to a separate drying area, so no water is dripped on the floor.
