Performance Rating

  • Energy Consumption

    This rating is based on the watt hours 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.

    Watt hours per dry:

    • 0 – 1.99Wh = star rating 5
    • 2 – 2.99Wh = star rating 4.5
    • 3 – 3.99Wh = star rating 4
    • 4 – 4.99Wh = star rating 3.5
    • 5 – 5.99Wh = star rating 3
    • 6 – 6.99Wh = star rating 2.5
    • 7 – 7.99Wh = star rating 2
    • 8 – 8.99Wh = star rating 1.5
    • 9 – 9.99Wh = star rating 1
    • 10Wh and above = star rating 0.5
    4.0 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.

    3.0 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
    4.0 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.

    4.0 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

Description

This is the next generation of the Airblade tap AB10 from Dyson.  The Dyson Wash+Dry hand dryer has improved the energy efficiency and noise level compared to the previous model whilst still providing a fast dry time of around 14 seconds.  Using intelligent infrared sensors and computer circuitry, the tap initiates water and hand drying at the appropriate times and keeps both activities in the sink area.

The main advantage of the Wash+Dry is 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.

By reducing the airspeed and motor speed it is now up to 39% quieter than the previous generation and has been credited with the Quiet Mark.  This has slightly increased the dry time but will still leave no user disappointed and traffic will flow quickly through the washroom.

The V4 brushless DC motor is still present and the rated power of the whole unit has been reduced by 600W to 1000W in total.  This has reduced the carbon production and cost to run.

A HEPA filter for hygienically filtered air is included as standard which captures 99.95% of particles the size of bacteria from the washroom air. As with all Dyson Airblade hand dryers it has been approved for food preparation locations by meeting HACCP International standards.

Every second, up to 21 litres of air is forced through apertures measuring just 0.55 mm wide. The result – 341 mph sheets of air that scrape water from hands, drying them quickly and hygienically.

It comes with a water flow rate of 1.9 l/min when the normal aerator is fitted but this can be increased to 4 l/min as it was in the first generation with the low flow aerator supplied with the product.

It comes equipped with automatic duty flush.  This works every 24 hours for 60 seconds after the last use.

There are 3 models of the Dyson Wash+Dry hand dryer. This is the WD05 tall version. There is also a WD04 short and WD06 wall version. Each one is recommended for different sink types.

Recommended basin types

Porcelain and brushed metal basins work best with the Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry hand dryer. Not suitable for basins with highly-polished surfaces e.g reflective chrome. In multiple Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry hand dryer installations, centres need to be at least 580mm apart.

  • Minimum sink width: 350 mm
  • Minimum sink front to back: 300 mm
  • Minimum sink depth: 100 mm

Please note the water pressure between needs to be 1-8 bar.

If you already have high quality taps and wish to add a retrofit, 'over the sink hand dryer', you may wish to consider the Dryflow Dri-tap to create the same drip free environment as the Airblade Wash+Dry hand dryer.
