January 19, 2007, Newsletter Issue #47: Multiple Automatic Dryers: Alternate The Heights

Tip of the Week

If the handicap bathroom design allows for two or more automatic dryers, place one so the start button (if not a touchless model) is 38-40 inches (965-1220 mm) above the floor and place others at 41-48 inches (1040-1220 mm) in an alternating pattern of higher and lower with room to accommodate left-handed and right-handed wheelchair approaches.

When a handicap restroom has just one automatic dryer be sure to allow 30x48 inches (760x1220 mm) of clear floor space so to accommodate both right- and left-handed wheelchair approaches.
