Dyson Airblade Tap (Long) AB10


Applications: extreme use (501 to 1000 uses per day)

Built with the same airblade technology as the original Dyson Airblade AB14 and the Dyson V, the Dyson Tap dries the hands in a super-fast 12 seconds. All whilst not having to leave the sink area. Using intelligent infrared sensors and computer circuitry, the tap initiates water and hand drying at the appropriate times.

The Dyson Tap includes the world’s smallest fully integrated digital 1600W motor and a HEPA filter for hygienically filtered air. Testing based on NSF Protocol P335 shows that the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer is fast. Every second, up to 35 litres of air is forced through apertures measuring just 0.8 mm wide. The result – 430 mph sheets of air that scrape water from hands, drying them quickly and hygienically.

The main advantage of the Tap is the fact that water stays over the sink and therefore improves the health and safety associated with a wet floor. It also reduces the amount of time needed to remove water from the floor areas by the facilities team. This also reduces the amount of space needed in the washroom as there is no need for 2 separate wash and dry areas.

There are 3 models of the Dyson Airblade Tap. This is the AB10 Long version, there is also a AB09 short and AB11 wall version. Each one is recommended for different sink types. Please see our resources section at the bottom of the page by clicking here to see Dysons recommendations and approved sinks.

Please note the water pressure between needs to be 1-8 bar, with pipe thread 1/2” BSP. The minimum clearance distance is 100mm between floor and motor bucket. The AB11 must use metal enclosure as supplied.

Performance Rating

  • Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watts per dry of the hand dryer which is derived from the rated power and the time taken to dry the hands. We have used the figures based on either the manufacturer’s dry time, if yet to be in house tested or based on the in house testing dry time we have conducted. This will also be based on the most energy efficient setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed and/or heat.

    Watts per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99W = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99W = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99W = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99W = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99W = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99W = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99W = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99W = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99W = star rating 1
    • 10W and above = star rating 0.5
    3.0 out of 5
  • Quiet Sound Level

    This rating is based on the manufacturers stated sound level, usually at 1m. Please see the section titled "how quiet is the." for more information and independent test results, which give a more accurate noise decibel level. These ratings will also be based on the low noise setting, if the hand dryer is adjustable for speed. Therefore at full speed the hand dryer may not be quiet, however it may be adjustable to become quiet if this is required.

    Decibels (dB):

    • Up to 68dB = star rating 5
    • 69 – 70dB = star rating 4.5
    • 71 – 72dB = star rating 4
    • 73 – 74dB = star rating 3.5
    • 75 – 76dB = star rating 3
    • 77 – 78dB = star rating 2.5
    • 79 – 80dB = star rating 2
    • 81 – 82dB = star rating 1.5
    • 83 – 84dB = star rating 1
    0.5 out of 5
  • Life Expectancy

    This rating is based on the number of motor life cycles (number of uses) the hand dryer, in theory, will last for. This is based on the motor life expectancy given to us in hours, from the manufacturer.

    The number of cycles (uses) has been calculated as follows:

    (Number of seconds in the hour / seconds per dry) x motor life hours

    For a more individualised longevity calculation based on your own usage numbers please use the life expectancy calculator on each product page.

    Number of motor life cycles:

    • 1,000,000 and over = star rating 5
    • 800,000 – 999,999 = star rating 4.5
    • 600,000 – 799,999 = star rating 4
    • 400,000 – 599,999 = star rating 3.5
    • 200,000 – 399,999 = star rating 3
    • 100,000 – 199,999 = star rating 2.5
    • 80,000 – 99,999 = star rating 2
    • 60,000 – 79,999 = star rating 1.5
    • 40,000 – 59,999 = star rating 1
    • 39,999 and under = star rating 0.5
    3.5 out of 5
  • High Speed

    These ratings are based on the in house testing we have conducted regarding dry times. They show realistic comparisons of what to expect from each hand dryer. Please note that the manufacturer stated dry time is not always accurate when compared to the hand dryer being used in realistic conditions. The ratings are based on the hand dryer being placed at its high speed setting if it can be manually adjusted.

    Dry Speed (seconds):

    • 10 – 11 seconds = star rating 5
    • 12 – 13 seconds = star rating 4.5
    • 14 – 15 seconds = star rating 4
    • 16 – 17 seconds = star rating 3.5
    • 18 – 19 seconds = star rating 3
    • 20 – 21 seconds = star rating 2.5
    • 22 – 23 seconds = star rating 2
    • 24 – 25 seconds = star rating 1.5
    • 26 – 27 seconds = star rating 1
    • Over 28 seconds = star rating 0.5
    4.5 out of 5
  • Enhanced Hygiene

    Hand dryers are a hygienic method of drying the hands. The better the dry, the less the risk of carrying germs on wet hands. Some hand dryers however have gone that little bit further to enhance the hygienic aspects of the hand dryer. These ratings are based on these extra factors that have been added to aid the hygienic properties. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating the more enhanced the hygienic properties of the hand dryer. Cold Plasma Clean (CPC) is the most advanced hygienic property on the market and scores a maximum of 5 stars.

    Enhanced Hygienic properties:

    • Cold Plasm Clean Technology = score 5 
    • Fast dry (<15secs) = score 0.5
    • Touch Free = score 0.5
    • Heat Sanitation = score 0.5
    • UV-C cleaning = score 0.5
    • HEPA filter = score 1.5
    • Anti Bacterial Coating = score 0.5
    • General filter = score 0.5
    • Ioniser = score 0.5
    3.0 out of 5
  • Vandal Resistance

    Some hand dryers would not be suitable for some locations where abuse may be likely such as a train station or night club. However the same hand dryer would be suitable for an office or school location. These ratings are based on an added together scoring system where the higher the rating, the more suitable we would recommend for areas where abuse may be likely.

    Vandal Resistance score

    • Compact size = score 0.5              
    • Decreased blockage potential = score 0.5
    • Additional Backplate/ fixings strength = score 1
    • Anti-vandal extras = score 1
    • Metal / ABS = score 1    
    • Cover thickness 1.5mm or more = score 0.5        
    • No leverage points (design) = score 0.5
