Fast dry time
Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands, but Airblade™ technology dries hands hygienically in just 10 seconds. “The public need to leave the washroom fast, so we needed a hand dryer that was also fast. In this case, Dyson was essential,” explains Lúcio.

Low environmental impact
Unlike paper towels, which require contant restocking and disposal of consumables, Dyson Airblade V hand dryers use high velocity sheets of air to dry hands - generating  up 74%  less CO2 per dry. The use of paper towls didn't fit with the sustainable vision of the stadium so were discounted straight away," adds Lúcio.
