The ideal hand dryer mounting height depends mainly on the age range of your average washroom users, and the type of dryer you’re installing. When purchasing dryers, they will come with the recommended mounting height. Below are the recommendations for both hands In and hands under dryers.
Suggested hands-under dryer height relative to age range:
Males (adult): 1,150mm
Females (adult): 1,100mm
Children (ages 3–6): 750mm
Children (ages 6–12): 880mm
Children (ages 12–17): 1,070mm
Disabled users: 950mm
These measurements are taken from the air nozzle of the dryer to the floor.
We offer 200 different hand dryers with 150 of them being hands under. These are becoming more popular because it saves space in the bathroom and also being cheaper. Popular brands we have are; Dyson, Mitsubishi, Warner Howard, Biodrier, JETBOX and many others. One issue some people have with this type of dryer is it blowing the water onto the wall. We now sell hand dryer splashback panels, to stop this from happening.
Suggested hands-in dryer height relative to age range:
Males (adult): 1,040mm
Females (adult): 980mm
Children (all ages): 880mm
Disabled users: 880mm
These measurements are taken from the top of the dryer unit to the floor.
With having only 30-40 hands in dryers, picking the right one is much easier. Popular brands we have are; Dyson, Mitsubishi, HandyDryers, Biodrier, JETBOX and a couple others. All hands in dryers except Dyson comes with a built-in drip tray to collect the water. Dyson do not offer this, but we do have an external drip tray to fit the popular AB14 dryer.
