Case Study

Red Funnel Ferries


The business

Red Funnel Ferries, based in Southampton, operate around 37,000 sailings each year, carrying 3½ million people.

They pride themselves on providing an excellent customer experience while keeping overheads to a minimum to ensure good value.


The problem

“We’ve been using warm air hand dryers,” explains Sales & Marketing Director, Jonathan Green. “But apart from being expensive to run, we feel they inconvenience customers – taking too long to dry hands.”

The solution:

Faster dry times
Using concentrated Airblade™ technology, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer scrapes all the water from hands in just 12 seconds.

Slim and compact profile
“We wanted to use a trusted brand like Dyson and particularly liked the look of the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer for its compact size and rapid performance,” adds Jonathan.

Low running costs
With no energy-hungry heating element, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run than warm air hand dryers, and up to 97% less than paper towels.
