Dyson’s most energy efficient hand dryer, the Airblade 9kJ, comes to the Building Centre Platform

21 Oct 2019

This autumn, in collaboration with the Building Centre, Dyson have curated the Dyson Design Series an exhibition and events programme celebrating the potential of science, engineering and design to create products that consider our wellbeing. With the launch of their most advanced hand hygiene design-technology to date, health and energy efficiency are brought to the forefront of the display.

Launched on 16 October, the Dyson Airblade 9kJ hand dryer is the fastest, quietest and most energy efficient model to date. Designed with the wellbeing of the user and environment in mind, a HEPA filter captures 99.95 per cent of airborne particulate pollution while in each eco mode dry only 9.1kJ of energy is used.

With an innovative curved blade design, the hand dryer efficiently scrapes water off the natural contours of the hand using high velocity unheated air, minimising energy consumption. The intersection of design and engineering has allowed Dyson to advance solutions for energy usage and hygiene waste, with the hand dryers producing 85 per cent less carbon dioxide emissions per dry than paper towels, which cannot be recycled. The efficiency and low energy usage of the Airblade 9kJ also means that in eco mode its running costs are just £19 per year.

The hand dryer’s credentials have been recognised by the Carbon Trust, Noise Abatement Society and the WELL Building Standard, with the Airblade 9kJ contributing towards satisfying W08 handwashing criteria.

Learn about the design development, see prototypes and tests of Dyson’s research and development labs, and experience the Airblade 9kJ in the exhibition, open at the Building Centre until 25 October.


Join us for the final event in the Dyson Design Series: Workspace re-engineered, on Thursday 24 October.


The Dyson Design Series is an exhibition and public programme of events curated by Dyson and the Building Centre exhibitions team.
