July 31, 2009, Newsletter Issue #177: Paper Towels: Know The Right Height

Tip of the Week

A paper towel dispenser is an important handicap bathroom fixture, either by itself or as an accompaniment to an automatic dryer. To meet criteria established by the Americans With Disabilities Act, install paper towel dispensers 15-48 inches (380-1,220 mm) above the floor. This height allows people in wheelchairs to access the towels by reaching forward or to the side.
