Buying better for Asthma and Allergy with Dyson
Did you know one in nine Australians have asthma? It’s a serious condition that if not managed properly can be life threatening. Maintaining a clean home environment is one of the best ways to help manage indoor asthma triggers, like pollen, pet hair and dander, and dust mites.
But what products should a customer with asthma or allergies choose? Helping customers choose the right products to suit their needs was one of the key reasons the National Asthma Council Australia set up the Sensitive Choice program.
Now all customers need to look for is the butterfly logo and they know they are making an informed and healthy product choice.
All products are reviewed by the Sensitive Choice Product Advisory Panel comprising experts in allergy, respiratory medicine, pharmacy, general practice, industrial chemistry and consumer issues. Products that are clearly a better choice for people with asthma or allergy are included on the Sensitive Choice register.
All Dyson full size vacuum cleaners were approved by the Sensitive Choice program because of the unique technology, which doesn’t lose suction and therefore removes more triggers from the home with every clean. A Dyson also retains the dirt and dust in the machine, expelling cleaner air.
No more awkward moves: Dyson’s first Ball barrel
Latest technology sits on a ball for smooth steering
Engineered to follow faithfully, DC39 is Dyson’s first barrel vacuum with patented Ball™ technology for stable manoeuvring around the tightest corners.
Barrel cleaners are often awkward to steer and can topple. They lurch into furniture, veer off at tangents and may be difficult to pull. Like an errant shopping trolley, their crude casters drift across hard floors and get buried in carpets – more force is needed to keep them on track. And reliant on bags or filters – they can lose performance too.
Sitting on a ball, DC39 has a lower centre of gravity and is easier to pull without snagging on corners or the carpet pile. Coupled with a patented central steering system, it uses an articulating chassis and central pivot point for negotiating tight turns and circumnavigating sofas. And equipped with Dyson’s Radial Cyclone™ technology, it captures more microscopic dust than any other cyclone.
Radial Cyclone™ technology
Other vacuum cleaners still rely on bags or filters, losing suction over time. Dyson has been continually refining cyclone technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago. Every angle of each airway is honed to ensure microscopic particles – as tiny as .5 microns or 1/5,000th of a pin head – are spun out of the airflow and captured in the bin.
DC39 Multi floor’s Musclehead™ floor tool self-adjusts across all floor types. Using air pressure, a surface recognition switch automatically retracts brushes as it senses carpet pile; and lowers them for hard floors. So no more bending down or fiddling with foot pedals.
DC39 Allergy and DC39 Animal’s Triggerhead tool is the only turbine head activated at the handle. When pressed, the pressure trigger creates a drop in pressure to switch the turbine head on or off, with no wires or electronics.
With airflow inside the inner cyclones generating in excess of 100,000 G – Dyson’s acoustics team were challenged to minimise the sound and vibration of high speed dirt. Testing in Dyson’s semi anechoic chamber resulted in a redesigned motor casing and vents to fine tune airflow.
DC39 will be available from all major electrical retailers and will retail from $749.
