Hand Dryer Height for Installation


Hand dryer height for installation is a frequently asked question after purchase.  The hand dryer height is primarily determined by the ADA Guides for accessability. Although, it is important to note that individual inspectors will need to make the final decision on dryer placement.

 The recommended hand dryer installation height from the floor to the bottom of the dryer can vary depending on the source and type of hand dryer.  The most popular brands American Dryer, Saniflow Corp., and World Dryer Corp publish their recommendations for automatic hand dryers.  For push button hand dryers the height would be slightly lower.
