Hand dryers are an essential piece of equipment in a school. Whether in the school canteen, the staffroom or school washrooms they’re sure to see a lot of use!

If your school is thinking about upgrading its hand dryers, you might be unsure where to start or what the best fit is for your needs. This article introduces you to some popular Dyson Airblade™ models to help you when choosing your Dyson Airblade™!

Why choose Dyson Airblades™?

The Dyson Airblade™ delivers on a range of important areas, including:

  • Hygiene: The Dyson Airblade™ reduces the transfer of bacteria by 40% when compared to traditional warm-air dryers. It comes with a medical-grade HEPA filter to capture 99.95% of particles (including viruses and bacteria) from your washroom air!
  • Drying speed: Kids don’t like waiting to dry their hands! Dyson Airblades™ are an ideal option for schools, with an ultra-fast drying speed of 10-14 seconds.
  • Durability: The rough-and-tumble of school life calls for hand dryers that will last the distance. Schools need dryers that are robust enough to withstand tampering or vandalism. Dyson Airblades™ are built to withstand real washroom conditions and high traffic.
  • Energy-efficiency and running costs: The energy-efficient Dyson Airblade™ can reduce running costs by around 86% when compared to traditional warm-air dryers. It’s also up to 99% less expensive a year than paper towels!

What to consider when choosing your Dyson Airblade™

As well as the above factors, there are likely to be other considerations when choosing your Dyson Airblade™. Younger kids are more likely to be sensitive to noise, so choosing a quiet model is a good choice for a primary school, for example. Dimensions are also important as you might need your dryer to fit into a relatively limited space.
