It goes without saying that optimum hand hygiene is hugely important in any clinical environment. For years experts have been working on ways to improve washroom technology and we’re pleased to be part of a ‘new dawn in washroom hygiene.’ TECHNIK are now supplying stainless steel sinks that are specially designed to suit the Dyson Airblade™ Tap Hand Dryer for the veterinary industry.

The Airblade™ Tap Hand Dryer is designed to significantly improve hand hygiene. A HEPA filter captures 99.9% of washroom bacteria and viruses from the air used to dry hands so hands are dried with clean air. The Airblade™ Tap Hand Dryer also uses less power and has a significantly lower environmental impact that other hand dryers and paper towels. This ensures it is an economical investment that in the long-term can greatly reduce washroom expenditure.

The reason that this specially designed sink basin works well in tandem with the Airblade™ Tap Hand Dryer is thanks to the dimensions of the basin. The shape of the basin compliments the flow of air from the Tap Hand Dryer providing a cleaner and more hygienic wash room experience.

Once hands are washed, the integrated tap hand dryer means users don’t need to leave the sink area to dry their hands. This prevents water from being dripped onto the floor, preventing slip and fall risks. Users also no longer have to reach for the paper towel dispenser which can harbour a lot of bacteria and germs. The ability to wash and dry hands at the sink unit frees up valuable floor and wall space, where there would otherwise be standalone hand drying facilities.

The innovative Airblade™ Tap Hand Dryer offers numerous benefits to users:
  • Unheated air removes water from the hands, drying hygienically in just 12 seconds
  • Costs up to 69% less to run than other hand dryers and up to 97% less than paper towels1
  • Produces 4.0g of CO2 per dry. Up to 74% less than other hand dryers and up to 71% less than paper towels2
  • Allows the user to wash and dry hands in the sink area, no slip and fall risk with excess water on floors
  • Hygienic and robust 304 grade stainless steel or Antimicrobial Copper sinks
  • Touch-free operation
  • NSF/HACCP approved
  • Five year guarantee

The sinks are available in four different models – the Cinque under mount basin, Arroyo under counter trough, a clinical sink station sink and a basin mounted trough sink. You can find out more about each one below.
