ADA Hand Dryers | ADA Compliant Hand Dryers
First, people often confuse ADA compliance and handicap accessible. They are related, but necessarily the same thing. If you would like to learn more, visit our educational resource page to learn more about the terminology.
ADA compliance with hand dryers is not normally mandatory. In fact, about 90% of our sales include normal surface mounts above 26 inches high from the floor. When necessary, there are a few ways to achieve ADA compliance with hand dryer installations. Recessing into the wall with a recess kit when mounting above 26 inches from the floor is one option. Another option is to use a thin designed hand dryer that is 4 inches or less in depth from the wall such as a World Dryer SlimDri, a Dyson Airblade V, or a Bobrick Trimline just to name a few. Another method is to install a vertical style hand dryer such as the Dyson Airblade AB14, the Mitsubishi Jet Towel, the Saniflow Dualflow Plus, and a few others. One of the newest solutions to hit the market is the American Dryer ADA wall guard. The wall guard is surface mounted and can be installed under any current American Dryer unit to achieve ADA compliance while protecting walls and floors from water.
