The Arena Corinthians sports stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil is home to Corinthians, one of the largest and most successful football clubs in the country. The stadium regularly welcomes over 47,000 sports fans.

Given the large visitor numbers, the stadium’s washroom facilities face extremely high pressure on match days. During the search for suitable hand dryers for the washroom, dozens of brands were tested but all lacked qualities such as efficient performance, exclusive design and low energy consumption. Operations manager Lúcio Blanco sought fast drying performance, while architect Anibal Couthinho wanted a design that reflected the venue’s premier status.

Only Dyson hand dryers met all of their expectations for form and function with a range of high performance features. Featuring concentrated Airblade technology, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer projects just four inches from the wall and is 60% smaller than the original Dyson Airblade model while offering the same drying performance.

Key features of Dyson Airblade V hand dryers installed at the Arena Corinthians include fast dry time, drying hands hygienically in just 10 seconds compared to other brands that can take up to 43 seconds; striking design that met the objectives of the stadium’s architect in terms of providing technology-enriched exclusive spaces; and low environmental impact from the use of high velocity sheets of air to dry hands, which generate up to 74% less CO2 per dry, while eliminating any need for paper towels, or constant restocking and disposal of consumables.

According to Lúcio, the customer feedback on the Dyson Airblade V hand dryers has been positive with the percentage of people washing their hands having actually increased after installation.

Dyson Airblade hand dryers deliver a multitude of benefits including fast performance, drying hands in 10-12 seconds; hygienic drying process with HEPA filters as standard; economical operation, costing up to 68% less than other hand dryers; environment-friendly with lower CO2 emissions and no paper waste generation; and 5-year parts guarantee for assured hassle-free performance.
