The newest generation of the Dyson Airblade is the Dyson dB (Mod. AB-14). Acoustically re-engineered, the Dyson AB14 Hand Dryer has all of the outstanding features and amazing looks of the previous generations, but is now 50% quieter than the original Dyson Airblade (Models AB-02& AB-04. It continues to out-perform all competitors in the hand dryer and paper towel industries. Like a squeegee made of air, the Airblade scrapes water from every crevice on the hand (even under jewelry) and gently dries more quickly and thoroughly than any other hygienic hand dryers on the market. As the user places his hands into the unit (without ever touching any surface), the infra-red sensors detect the hands. Then, as the user removes his hands, thin sheets of air traveling at 420mph through two continuous apertures (only as wide as an eyelash) scrape water from the hands in just twelve seconds.No other hand dryer has this patented Airblade technology. It is the most energy-efficient hand dryer on the market. The faster dry time means less electricity is used. And since no heating element is required, this Dyson AB14 Hand Dryer consumes considerably less energy than warm air hand dryers that work on the concept of evaporation. Add into this cost-saving equation the energy-efficient design of the fully integrated Dyson V4 Digital Motor. Using digital pulse technology, this powerful brushless motor spins at an astonishing rate of 92,000 times a minute (11,000 rpm faster than the previous generation of motors) while only requiring 1400 watts to do so. The Airblade motor is powerful enough to draw all of its air through a dense HEPA filter prior to ever touching the user’s hands - removing 99.97% of all bacteria from that air. (Estimated filter life is over 300,000 cycles.) The air this unit returns to the washroom is actually cleaner than the air it draws in, making it one of the more hygienic hand dryers. The vandal-proof Polycarbonate ABS casing is similar to the color molded bumpers found on today's automobiles. Even after a significant impact, the durable, scratch-resistant plastic bounces back to its original form free of damage. The same cannot be said of a metal casing. Although the Airblade is a touch-free operation, anti-microbial additives are integrated into every external surface. The Airblade has always had precisely tuned silencing technology integrated into the motor housing and ducting to keep noise to a minimum. But by acoustically re-engineering the Dyson AB14 Hand Dryer, a new level of quiet has been achieved with the dB model. Dyson focused on two key sources of sound: the air rush noise & motor noise. By creating new scallop-shaped apertures and off-setting the front aperture (and thus altering the angle of the air) the two sheets of air travel farther before colliding. For the motor noise, Dyson engineered Helmholtz silencers that literally absorb the unpleasant tones the motor generates. Due to these efforts, the Dyson AB14 Hand Dryer sound produced is only 81 dB (50% quieter than the original Airblade).Each unit comes with a5 year parts warranty and a 1 year limited labor warranty.
Please note that the Dyson Airblade dB (AB-14) has replaced all previous Airblade models of similar design, including the AB-02, AB-04, and AB-06 Mk2 (all of which are no longer being manufactured by Dyson).

When working to make the Dyson AB14 Hand Dryer quieter than the original Dyson Airblade hand dryer, Dyson engineers focused on reducing sound from two key sources:
- Air rush noise
- Motor noise
Reduced air rush noise
Airblade technology results in air traveling at 420 mph through apertures measuring just 0.3 mm in width. Some noise is inevitable.
Dyson engineers have reduced the noise produced by the sheets of air by redesigning the shape of the apertures through which air is forced.
Reduced motor noise
Dyson acoustic engineers have made improvements to the level and the quality of the sound generated by the Dyson digital motor V4.
Dyson digital motor V4
The Dyson digital motor V4 was seven years in the making - it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1400W motors.The Dyson AB14 motor is the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 9.25 gallons of air per second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 12 seconds.
The Dyson AB14 dryer's long-life, energy-efficient motor is digitally-switched at 6,100 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 92,000 times a minute. There are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
12 second dry time
Testing based on NSF Protocol P335 shows that most other hand dryers are much slower than their manufacturers claim. Many people give up when using a slow hand dryer. But damp hands can spread up to 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands.
Testing based on NSF P335 proves that Dyson Airblade hand dryers are the fastest. The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer dries hands hygienically in 12 seconds. Airblade technology combined with the Dyson digital motor V4 creates high speed sheets of air that scrape water from both sides of the hands simultaneously. The Dyson AB14 is the fastest way.
Tough and durable
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is engineered to last.The Dyson AB14 has been repeatedly tested for durability and resilience to physical and chemical abuse. Dyson Airblade dB hand dryers have also been exposed to real-life environments to ensure that they can withstand the pressures of high usage.
With strong construction and robust materials, the Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer is suitable for high traffic, high-usage locations where vandalism can be an issue.And because the Dyson AB14 uses filtered sheets of 420 mph air to dry hands, there is no heating element prone to wear and failure.
Lowest running costs
Most other blade-less hand drying methods are expensive to run. Paper towels need restocking and disposal. Most other hand dryers are slow, and many use a heating element, so they're energy-hungry.
The Dyson AB14 Hand Dryer dB hand dryer costs up to 69% less to run than other hand dryers per year, and up to 97% less than paper towels.
Low impact on the environment
Dyson Airblade hand dryers produce up to 72% less CO2 than some other hand dryers and up to 68% less than recycled paper towels.
No other hand dryer meets every part of NSF Protocal P335.
The Dyson Airblade dB hand dryer dries hands in just 12 seconds. It’s the fastest hand dryer.The Dyson AB14 also has touch-free operation, uses a HEPA filter and has a lifetime antimicrobial coating to protect the product.
Touch Free Operation
The Dyson AB14 is a touch free operation with infra-red activation. Hand dry time is 12 seconds based on NSF Protocol P335. The Dyson AB14 also has an operation lock-out period of 30 seconds. The touch free operation makes it one of the more hygienic hand dryers.
Sealed casing infused with antimicrobial additives to protect the product.
