The Dyson Airblade Hand Dryer is ADA Handicap Compliant
ADA is the Americans with disabilities act. More information on ADA can be found at www.ADA.gov.
One of the most important regulation with an ADA hand dryer is its depth from the wall. The depth with which an ADA hand dryer protrudes from the wall it is installed on is important because if too deep, it could be hazardous to a blind person. The ADA hand dryer specifications state that the air dryer must not protrude from the wall more than 4 inches. Any further, and a blind user would have a great chance of bumping into it since there is no alert to its presence. The Dyson Airblade hand dryer is ADA compliant. The installation of the Dyson Airblade is low enough to the ground that a blind person could easily detect the hand dryer with a cane.
Not all restrooms have to be legally ADA compliant. In fact, most restrooms do not require ADA compliance. However, regardless of legal obligation to ADA compliance or not, the Dyson Airblade reduces the risk of a blind person being harmed in the restroom.
