Over the past decade, the name Dyson has become synonymous with innovation. Improving products we rely upon daily has been the driving force behind the incredible Dyson products many of us love. The synergy of more than 1,000 diverse engineering minds coupled with a first-class design team has allowed Dyson to not only produce cutting-edge technology, but also yield products that are visually stunning.

Regardless of model, Airblade technology incorporates the best of Dyson engineering to solve practical problems in a hygienic and efficient manner. Each Dyson Airblade operates at a fraction of the cost of traditional warm air hand dryers and paper towels. As the only hand dryer brand to achieve both HACCP International and NSF International certification, these units are approved for use in any food and beverage service location.

Take a few moments to read through this Dyson Airblade technical specifications guide to understand the advances in each of the three Airblade model series on the market today.

The Dyson dB Series: Durable, Efficient, and Hygienic

Dyson Airblade AB14

The Dyson dB series replaced the Dyson AB series in late 2013, substituting the single Dyson AB14 for the Dyson AB02, Dyson AB04, and Dyson AB06. The Dyson AB14 represents a significant step forward from those earlier models thanks to a scalloped aperture developed by Dyson's engineers. This design can reduce by up to 50 percent the perceived noise created by air rushing out of the machine at 400 miles per hour. The AB14 is ideal for high-traffic and commercial facilities, since it’s constructed with stainless steel and engineered with an anti-burglary feature. Clearly, this Airblade is designed to endure high demand.

Dyson Airblade V: An ADA-Compliant Hand Dryer

Airblade V

Extending just four inches from the wall and with a design that puts the air output apertures at the bottom of the unit, the Dyson Airblade V is accessible to all users, making it ADA-compliant. It requires no recessing to meet those requirements. The Dyson AB12 dries hands in just 12 seconds with HEPA-filtered air that is free of 99.97 percent of airborne bacteria.

Dyson Airblade Tap: Hand Drying Technology in a Tap

Airbalde Tap

Introduced in early 2013, the Dyson Airblade Tap is the first system that combines hand washing and hand drying in a single, automatic, touch-free unit. Installed at the sink, the Airblade Tap provides water for washing when the hands are placed under the central stem, then provides high-speed, HEPA-filtered air from the stems on each side for drying. Having both jobs in one compact entity offers several advantages, including reducing the amount of space needed for the hand washing station and eliminating water left on the floor as patrons walk from the sink to the hand dryer.

There are three designs for the Airblade Tap. The Dyson AB09 has a short, 6.25-inch column that mounts to the counter. The Dyson AB10 has a long, 12.125-inch column that mounts to the counter. The Dyson AB11 mounts to the wall and extends over the sink.
