The Ribbon Hand Dryer: Quiet, fast, efficient

Developed to provide an intuitive hand-drying experience at the sink, the award-winning Ribbon Hand Dryer is a touch-free deck-mounted system that allows users to easily identify where the dryer is located while minimizing hand-washing drips to floors and counters. With a high-speed drying time of 15 seconds and an air-flow rate of 112 meters per second, our acoustically insulated sensor hand dryer is quiet, fast and efficient. With its powerful blower unit and reliable motor, the Ribbon Hand Dryer can be specified for all levels of restroom footfall, from small restaurants to high-throughput public bathrooms. Cast from solid AISI 304 stainless steel, the Ribbon Hand Dryer is available in five brushed stainless steel PVD finishes or polished chrome. Simple to install with a 5 year warranty*, it features a variable-speed motor set by the client or installer.

The Ribbon Hand Dryer is currently installed in public bathrooms and commercial restrooms around the world, including London Heathrow and Newark airports, offices and showrooms in Chicago and Latvia and shopping malls in Sweden and Finland.

2. Design

The Ribbon Collection was conceived as a trio of products that could increase user flow in the restroom while reducing paper-towel wastage and water on the floor. Armed with this aim and inspired by the rich heritage of British engineering, design and craftsmanship, The Splash Lab approached London architecture studio, Sebastian Conran Associates, to collaborate on the project, which resulted in the convention-breaking Ribbon Collection. Slender and streamlined with a unique deck-mounted aesthetic, the touch-free Ribbon Hand Dryer challenges public bathroom norms by allowing users to dry their hands at the sink. Cast in high-quality solid stainless steel and updated with a powerful new motor, the Ribbon Hand Dryer 2.0 is as beautiful as it is robust.

3. Specification

Moving away from traditional hand dryer designs where the motor is located within a visible box on the wall, the Ribbon Hand Dryer 2.0 takes a fresh approach by deck-mounting the dryer head at the sink. Separating the motor from the head allows the motor to be hidden within the wall void or the below-deck cabinetry, leaving only the solid stainless steel head visible. Attention to detail and testing of airflow and user interface has allowed us to create a refreshing and speedy hand-drying experience with minimal noise. Whether specified individually or as part of the Ribbon trio, the Hand Dryer has been designed to work seamlessly with our Monolith Basin System.
