"The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers have a modern and sleek design that fits the general design of
The View from The Shard very well."

The Shard solution

The problem

Warm air hand dryers had been installed in The View from The Shard’s public washrooms, but they were not considered effective enough at drying hands.

The business also felt the design of the hand dryers did not reflect well on the building’s cutting-edge architectural and design status.

The solution

Dyson Airblade V hand dryers

Dries hands properly

Two high-speed sheets of air arranged in a V-configuration dry hands in just 10 seconds. “The Dyson Airblade V hand dryers are efficient and drying time has improved dramatically,” explains Sandy Clark, Operations Director.

Saves space

At just four inches deep, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer’s slim profile takes up less space in the washroom. “Guests also feel that the new hand dryers are higher quality than hand dryers they have used elsewhere,” adds Sandy.
