A Cleaner, More Hygienic Washroom for Children

by Eddie Rayner

The past few years have put an unprecedented spotlight on hygiene across the globe, especially in shared spaces such as schools. In washrooms. for instance, damp hands can transfer up to one thousand times more bacteria than dry hands, so it’s important to provide students with effective hand-drying facilities to help minimise the spread.


Dyson hand dryers produce up to 85% less CO2 than other hand dryers and can dry 18 pairs of hands for the price of a single paper towel


This is why warm air dryers are commonly used in shared washrooms as a hand-drying solution, but unfortunately, not all hand dryers are created equal. Some warm air dryers can flag up some very real hygiene concerns, including using unfiltered air to dry hands or requiring activation through a physical button.

These same warm air dryers are also often guilty of high energy consumption – an unwelcome contribution to a school’s carbon footprint and expenses.

  • Save on Costs, Washroom Space, and CO2 Emissions
  • Several things should be taken into consideration when choosing a hand dryer:
  • Robustness and reliability: schools should invest in hand dryers that will last and be able to withstand multiple uses per day.
  • Efficient filtration of the air: hand dryers should have filters to remove particles, including bacteria and viruses.
  • Fast drying: Damp hands can transfer up to one thousand times more bacteria than dry hands and children might not wait around to dry their hands properly with an inefficient hand dryer.
  • Energy efficiency: schools should be looking to transition to energy-efficient hand dryers meaning lower annual running costs, maximising school savings.
  • Carbon footprint: schools should look for hand dryers that show reduced CO2 energy consumption (i.e. Carbon Trust certified).

So, where is it possible to find all of these requirements within one product? The answer is Dyson Airblade hand dryers, which help to create a cleaner, more hygienic washroom for children.

All of the hand dryers are touch-free and include HEPA filters, which capture 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns, including bacteria and viruses from the air, ensuring hands are dried with cleaner air, not dirty air. Additionally, Dyson Airblade hand dryers can help schools save on costs, washroom space, and CO2 emissions, with no single-use paper waste.

This latter point is important, as paper towels have a high carbon footprint, closely followed by warm air dryers. Dyson Airblade hand dryers produce up to 85% less CO2 than other hand dryers and can dry 18 pairs of hands for the price of a single paper towel. Put simply, Dyson engineers have developed a machine that not only works effectively and hygienically but also has a lower impact on the environment than other hand-drying methods. Dyson Airblade hand dryers are exceptionally cost-effective too, costing up to 99% less to run than paper towels.
