What is the correct height for an automatic electric dryer?

Set Hand Dryer Heights For Men, Women, and Children

Regardless of the type of restroom automatic dryer that is installed, the height of the dryer from the floor can be adjusted to accommodate the size of the majority of the users, or facility managers can mix it up and install some dryers at varying heights. Standard distances from the floor to the bottom of the automatic electric dryer fixtures that are used in most public restrooms are as follows:

  • Men: 42 inches (107 cm)
  • Women: 40 inches (102 cm)
  • Children: 30-40 inches (46-102 cm)
  • Handicap: 34 inches (86 cm)
