Our Journey to Carbon Neutrality (and why litter picking forms part of this).

When Intelligent Facility Solutions’ founder, Andrew Cameron, founded the business back in 2012, he liked the fact that the products it specialised in, namely hand dryers, saved people lots of money, eliminated paper towel waste, and stopped trees from being chopped down. We wanted to live and breathe our environmental ethos… While we were delivering environmental benefits to our customers, we also believed it was important to put our money where our mouths were, so to speak. So we made incremental changes within our business, like agreeing with the team... Read More

Review 2021 – Dryflow® G-Force MKII Hand Dryer

Review 2021 – Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry Hand Dryer

The Dyson Hand Dryer and Tap combined into a single, over-the-sink device is a really interesting innovation. The product was designed to solve the issue of water dripping on the floor when someone travels from the sink to the hand dryer and again when they use the dryer. At present none of Dysons other models solve this issue and require an additional tray to be purchased. It also means that no water needs to be stored as it drains straight off the hands and into the sink. The product is... Read More

Review 2021 – Dryflow® Jet Force Pro HEPA

The Jetforce Pro has been around for some time now, it was one of the early alternatives to the Dyson Airblade AB14. It was selected for the Olympic stadium in London 2012 and has been in a number of notable project installs over the years. The design is exactly the same today with the addition of a HEPA filter, so with so many new dryers coming onto the market every year, how does it stand up? If you like ‘hands in’ blade-style dryers and have a mid to high traffic... Read More

Review 2021 – Dyson Airblade AB14 DB

This is the 3rd generation Dyson Airblade. It’s hard to believe but the AB01, which looks pretty much identical to the current version was launched back in 2006. Since then, there has been the Airblade Mark II and the Airblade DB (AB14). Each model has had slight motor and construction enhancements and noise reduction. How does the Airblade AB14 DB compare now? It’s the dryer that changed the hand drying world and 15 years on from its launch it’s still a great dryer. It does have a downside though, water...

Which hand dryers are best for universities?

‘Universities are huge, complex estates with lots of different considerations’ A university is a complex mix of different property types. For example, there will be libraries, concert halls, lecture theatres, administration areas, sports halls, changing huts situated in the middle of fields, student bars, and laboratories. Some properties will be state of the art, others, built hundreds of years ago. The toilets located near each of these diverse buildings will have to consider the level of footfall, how likely misuse is (student bar!), the electrical supply, and acceptable noise levels...
