A shared approach to solving problems with elegant, seamless technology made Corian basins and washplanes the perfect companion to the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer. Together, these two brands have solved one of the most significant problems facing commercial bathrooms, with a combination whose elegance is equally suited to the home.
The solution puts hand washing and drying in one streamlined place, so visitors don’t track water across the floor when moving from the basin to the paper towels or hand dryer. This solutions means that dealing with high-traffic areas is a breeze; the combination of the Corian basin with the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer eliminates crossover traffic, resulting in a cleaner, drier, safer floor. Plus – it brings costs down, by making paper towels a thing of the past.
A state-of-the-art solution made by DuPont, Corian is a clever and unique blend of natural materials, pigments and acrylic resin. Each basin and washplane is manufactured from solid Corian, so as to ensure that each build can be seamlessly integrated into existing bathroom surfaces to create perfect facilities that are strong, beautiful and hygienic.
By incorporating Dyson Airblade technology in the tap, Corian and Dyson have made hand hygiene fast and easy. The Airblade Tap takes an average of just 12 seconds to dry a pair of hands, with no taps to turn or buttons to touch. Accuracy is assured through intelligent infrared sensors, which means no more delays or frustrating hand waving; sophisticated circuitry initiates the appropriate response of water or air immediately.
Available in a wide range of designs, the combination of Corian basins and washplanes with the Dyson Airblade Tap is available now, ready to be configured into a beautiful design solution for any bathroom.
