    When you need to add the ‘Wow factor’ to hand drying.

    The Conran designed Ribbon Hand Dryer 2.0 can be specified as an individual product or as part of the Ribbon Collection trio. 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 provides a breathtaking user experience, while having the practical benefit of minimising hand-washing drips to floors and counters.

    Quiet, fast, efficient and convention breaking.

    With a high-speed drying time of 15 seconds and an air-flow rate of 112 metres per second, our acoustically insulated sensor hand dryer is quiet, fast and efficient. It even features a variable-speed motor set by the client or installer, to create the perfect user-experience.

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

    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-footfall washrooms. On top of all these great features, it’s also simple to install with a 5 year warranty (1 year parts and labour; 4 years parts only).

    Inspired by the rich heritage of British engineering, design and craftsmanship.

    The Ribbon Collection was conceived as a trio of products that could increase user flow in the washroom while reducing paper-towel wastage.

    Inspired by the rich heritage of British engineering, design and craftsmanship, The Splash Lab approached 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 restroom 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.
