Dyson announces cutting-edge developments across its floorcare technologies in the Middle East


Dyson is well-known for creating pioneering floorcare technologies that revolutionize the vacuum cleaner industry. As we head into a new season, Dyson has unveiled three new products available in the Middle East that bring together the most advanced software and intelligence to get the best-ever cleaning performance.

The new technologies available in the region from today include Dyson’s most powerful cord-free vacuum the Dyson Gen5detect, the Dyson Submarine™ wet roller head; the brands first wet vacuum cleaner, and the Dyson Humdinger, Dyson’s lightest cordless handheld vacuum to date.

Dyson’s team of in-house microbiologists have been studying real dust from around the world for almost 20 years, analyzing particles measuring 70 microns in size – the width of human hair – right down to 0.1 microns, the size of a virus. Dyson’s labs are also home to a farm of dust mites, enabling scientists to collect their faeces and learn more about dust mite allergens. Only through this extensive research can Dyson engineers continue to engineer new vacuum cleaner technologies, to better deal with the conditions they face in the real world.

Dyson’s recent Global Dust Study revealed that in the last year, there has been a significant reduction in the number of people maintaining regular cleaning schedules, yet consumers still spend 25 minutes a week, the equivalent of 65 hours per year, vacuuming homes. In the same study it was found that the UAE and KSA ranked the highest globally, with 63% of people from KSA and 61% of UAE, saying they worry about viruses in the home.

The Dyson Gen5detect cordless vacuum, tackles this worry as it features fifth generation Hyper-dymium motor technology spinning at up to 135,000 rpm delivering unrivalled suction power, capable of capturing viruses from the home. The machine features a fully sealed, whole-machine HEPA filtration system, engineered to capture 99.99% of particles down to 0.1 microns[2]. 14 cyclones also remove dust from the airflow so there’s no loss of suction, ensuring optimal performance with every clean.

The Gen5detect offers an energy dense battery with 70 minutes run-time and possesses a number of new and re-engineered features such as the Fluffy Optic cleaner head which produces increased brightness and range with the blade of light revealing twice the amount of microscopic dust. Additionally, the product features a completely re-engineered user interface (UI) that now shows users in real-time when their surface is clean. A piezo sensor uses acoustic sensing to count and categorize particle sizes, and bars on the LCD screen now rise and fall according to volume of particles being removed in real-time – so owners know when to move on or spend more time cleaning.

James Dyson, Founder and Chief Engineer at Dyson, says: “The Gen5detect defines Dyson’s next generation of cleaning technology. It is the combination of our dust light optic technology, dust particle counting and sizing, pioneering new motor and whole-machine HEPA filtration, that enables you to achieve our deepest ever clean.”

33,997 online interviews across a representative sample of 39 countries. Fieldwork was conducted between 11th January and 6th February 2023. Data has been weighted at a ‘Global’ level to be representative of different population sizes.

Filtration tested against ASTM F3150, tested in Boost mode by independent third-party, SGS-IBR Laboratories US in 2022. Filtration efficiency is calculated by comparing the number of standardized dust particles entering the vacuum cleaner against those released. The capture rate may differ depending on actual environment and the mode.

Suction tested to IEC62885-4 CL5.8 and CL5.9, tested at the flexible inlet, loaded to bin full, in Boost mode by independent third-party, SGS-IBR Laboratories US in 2022.

Quantity and size of dust displayed on screen varies depending on usage. Examples shown may occur within one or more displayed size range. Automatic suction adaptation only occurs in auto mode. Applies in Eco mode on hard floor. Actual run time will vary based on power mode, floor type and/or attachments used.

Dyson’s Global Dust Study identified that the UAE and KSA were the markets whose residents use two-in-one mop and dry vacuums the most globally. As a result of this appetite for wet and dry vacuuming products, Dyson have introduced their first product in this category; the Dyson Submarine™ wet roller head, available with the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine and Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine vacuums.

The Submarine delivers just the right amount of water to effectively remove spills, stains, and small debris from hard floors. To achieve an optimum ‘clean floor’ finish without over saturating, the wet roller head has been engineered with an eight-point hydration system, using a pressurized chamber for even water distribution across the full width of the roller.

The motor-driven microfiber roller removes spills, tough stains and small debris, covering flooring up to 110m2, thanks to a 300ml clean water tank. A durable plate extracts contaminated water from the wet roller and deposits it into a separate waste-water tank to ensure no dirt and debris is transferred back onto the floor. Designed with a low profile and full-width brush bar, the Dyson Submarine™ wet roller head allows for effortless maneuvering underneath furniture, cleaning dust, debris, and spills from even the most awkward places.

The final product joining Dyson’s impressive floorcare range is the Dyson Humdinger™, the most powerful, lightweight handheld vacuum that traps 99.99% of microscopic particles with no loss of suction. Engineered for every day quick handheld cleans, the Humdinger’s™ compact and lightweight versatility and specialized cleaning tools allows users to effectively move between the car, home, or hard to reach places.
Coming with three specialized tools including a mini motorized tool, perfect for mattresses upholstery and stairs, a combination crevice tool, designed for hard to reach and narrow spaces, and a surface tool engineered to pick up small and large debris on hard surfaces. The 20-minute run time gives users the option of quick and effective cleans for speedy spill clearance.
