What automatic dryers are best for handicap restrooms?

Install Automatic Dryers That Turn On Easily

An automatic dryer may be more useful as a handicap bathroom fixture than a paper towel dispenser. Touchless, motion-sensor models can be purchased from several manufacturers such as American Dryer, Sani-Flow, and Excel. If push-button dryers are installed in handicap bathrooms, they must not require more than 5 pounds of force to push, and should be operable with one hand. The start button for a handicap accessible hand dryer should be 38-40 inches (760x1220 mm) above the floor in accordance with ADA restroom requirements.
