The Pebble

Braehead shopping centre is one of Scotland’s leading shopping and entertainment destinations. The centre also prides itself on its accessibility, with plenty of disabled washroom facilities, sensory aids, changing rooms, 650 designated parking spaces and a dedicated Shopmobility service.

During a washroom refresh in 2021, Braehead shopping centre decided to procure new hand dryers. The Pebble hand dryer became the clear winner due to its elegant streamline design and low noise levels, as well as the solutions it offers to washrooms in high footfall venues.

A key driver for the project was the speed and ease of replacement if there should be a fault. The Pebbles True Plug & Play design makes replacing an out of service dryer simple and fast. More so because the Pebble includes a 24hr turnaround warranty service! And, in the event that a dryer does need replacing, the dryer swap over is so easy that no expert knowledge or training is necessary!

“Our customer was extremely impressed with the dryer! The greatest benefit is the reduction in down time – minutes instead of days. Any faulty units can be replaced easily by anyone… probably the most innovative, practical and stylish dryer I’ve seen in this time. Definitely a 5 star product.”

Jason Moore, Wilson Washrooms

Due to visitor volumes hygienic and robust dryers were needed. Not only is the outer casing of the Pebble strong (IK08 rating), the dryer casing also has Ion Pure antimicrobial technology impregnated, meaning germs and bacteria on its surface are eliminated.

Focussing on the inside of the dryer, the Pebble also includes a smart HEPA iFilter that warns you when it needs replacing, and a brushless motor. So, the Pebble is cleaner and has a longer lifespan.

The Pebble seemed like the most obvious solution to the shopping centres washroom challenges.
