Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers were installed at the Keflavik Airport in Iceland to create a functional, hygienic and elegant user experience for travellers. Providing a natural link between North America and Europe, Keflavik Airport prides itself on delivering a modern and streamlined travel experience.

Elin Kjartansdóttir, the terminal’s architect explained that the old-fashioned dryers took a long time to dry hands, and were ineffective too. When looking for options, they sought a solution that would ensure there would not be water or paper towels on the floor.

Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers met all the requirements of the brief.

No water on the floor

With Airblade technology integrated into the tap, the user doesn’t have to move to a separate drying area, eliminating any dripping on the floor and keeping it clean and dry.

No paper towel mess

With Airblade Tap hand dryers, users can dry their hands at the tap. Since paper towels are not needed, there’s no risk of the floor looking messy with discarded tissues. With minimal paper towel wastage, the environment also benefits from the hand dryer.

Fast dry times

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses two sheets of air travelling at 430mph to dry hands completely in 12 seconds. The high speed function of the hand dryers is especially ideal for users in a hurry.


Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers are designed for sensor operation so there are no taps to turn, or buttons to touch for water or air. A HEPA filter captures 99.9% of bacteria and viruses from the washroom air.

Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers come with a 5-year parts guarantee.
