In redesigning London’s Queen Mary University restrooms, usual design concerns of style and function had to be placed alongside the fact that a university washroom is a particularly high traffic area; enter Dyson.
April 23rd, 2018
The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers were installed at the Queen Mary University in London, specifically to improve the wellbeing and hygiene of student surroundings. The hand dryers are installed alongside Corian’s all-in-one washplane units putting washing and drying in one streamlined position. This solution avoids the usual experience that students and visitors encounter of dripping water across the floor to the paper towel dispenser or hand drying station. The ability to wash and dry hands in one place also reduces cross-over traffic in the bathrooms, resulting in a cleaner, drier and ultimately safer floor.
Dyson’s Airblade technology removes the need for wasteful paper towels, contributing to the University’s carbon reduction target; an extremely important facet of contemporary design for students and university staff alike.
By integrating the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer into the Corian Washplanes, hygiene standards of Queen Mary University have been improved, seeing as the Airblade takes 12 seconds to dry a pair of hands – touch-free. With no taps to turn or buttons to touch, the appropriate response of water or air is dispensed quickly, via infrared scanner, reducing time and energy used in the bathroom.
