Do ADA hand dryers need Braille instructions on them?

Braille - A Necessity for ADA Hand Dryers

Braille is a staple of ADA regulations. In most public areas, Braille is a requirement for compliance. There is also a requirement for properly approved ADA hand dryers that states the instructions for use must be available in Braille on the unit. With the heat generated by hand dryers, those without sight need to have a way of knowing the proper operation without the chance of burning themselves. ADA hand dryers are only approved if there is Braille available and it contains the proper information regarding operation and temperatures. If you are purchasing automatic hand dryers for your facilities, be sure to double check that your manufacturer complies with all of the ADA requirements, including easily accessible Braille.
