ADA Compliant Hand Dryers

ADA Compliant Hand Dryers

ADA Hand Dryers are often a requirement with public facility requirements. ADA compliance means that the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) have been met regarding handicap accessibility. The ADA defines the requirements for accessibility in the design and construction of public restroom spaces in the United States. Concerning hand dryers this generally means with the compact hand dryer installed it will protrude no more than 4” from the wall. An example of ADA hand dryers would be designed recess mounted hand dryers, surface mounted modular and compact hand dryers specifically designed for ADA compliance, or surface mounted hand dryers that are installed with their optional manufacturer recess kit that has specifically been designed to make the surface mounted hand dryer ADA compliant. Please note, with the last option, the optional recess kit must be used for the surface mounted hand dryer to be considered ADA compliant. If a hand dryer protrudes more than 4 inches from the wall, it can still be considered ADA compliant, but it must be mounted so that part of the hand dryer is below 27” from the floor to allow for cane detection for the visually impaired. When installed ADA hand dryers protrude more than 4”, and part of it is at least 27” from the floor, the maximum high forward reach also needs to be 48” with the minimum low forward reach at 15”. * An example of these would be the Vertical Style Hand Dryers on HandDryerSupply.com. More and current ADA hand dryer height requirement information can be found on the US Access Board website.

Always consult with the architect or design engineer with questions regarding your project specific ADA hand dryers compliance requirements. The ADA compliant hand dryers and compact hand dryers on HandDryerSupply.com have been noted by their manufacturer.
