No other hand dryer meets every part of NSF Protocol P335. It’s the fastest hand dryer. The Dyson Airblade™ dB hand dryer dries hands in just 12 seconds. It also has touch-free operation, uses a HEPA filter and has a lifetime antimicrobial additive to protect the product. It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 28 liters of air per second through a HEPA filter.
Hand drying can take up to 43 seconds, so people often give up. But damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands. Most other hand dryers don't filter bacteria from the restroom air. They suck in dirty air then blow it back onto hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap™ hand dryer uses a HEPA filter removing 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.
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. 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."
