The average British home is just eight times the size of a London taxi cab[i]. Space is at a premium and the technology we use in our home must reflect this.
Dyson engineers were set the brief to concentrate Dyson technology, creating a machine that is small, quiet and powerful. The result is Dyson Small BallTM.
While the average upright vacuum cleaner weighs a hefty 7kg in Britain, the new Dyson Small BallTM vacuum cleaner weighs just 5.5kg. Designed for easy lifting up stairs, in and around the home, Dyson Small BallTM is versatile and easy to use.
2 Tier Radial™ Cyclones increase airflow and capture fine dust. And the advanced cleaner head automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors – sealing in suction.
The machine, which generates 30% less noise than Dyson’s previous generation of compact upright technology, has redefined airflow paths. This enabled the engineers to reduce unwanted noise, removing turbulence, without compromising on performance.
James Dyson: ”Small Ball epitomises our obsession with lean engineering. Concentrating Dyson technology into a compact body has produced our most advanced lightweight upright machine yet.”
Investments in acoustics
Acoustic engineering is pivotal in the development of Dyson technology. Over the past ten years the team of acoustic engineers has increased their investments by 1000%. The team, which is now over 40 strong, refines the movement of air through the cyclones and identifies specific frequencies to reduce the more irritating sounds.
The Dyson Small Ball Animal variants are accompanied by the Dyson Tangle-free Turbine tool. It is the only turbine tool that effectively removes hair from surfaces without tangling. Other turbine tools leave you tugging out the tangles: hair wraps around the brush bar slowing it down and overtime stopping it from working all together. Hair balls, scissors – and mess.
Dyson Ball™ vacuums turn on a dime and are easy to manoeuvre around obstacles which makes steering easier with a turn of the wrist. The UK College of Chiropractors commends our Ball™ technology for its potential to prevent musculoskeletal discomfort during vacuuming.
