What do you need to know about Hand Dryer Installation?

Hand dryers are not difficult to install and the hand dryer installation process is fairly easy. Before you start the hand dryer installation process you need to determine where it is to be placed.

Dryer Placement

It is advisable to place the dryer at least 2 feet apart and 12 inches from the washbasin. Avoid installing the dryer over the washbasin. If you choose an automatic dryer, it needs to be at least 18 inches above any projection, so that it does not interfere with the automatic sensor.

If you have a congested area with little space, you can install the dryer in such a way that it creates a flow from the washbasin to the dryer and ultimately leading towards the exit. It is best to learn about the mounting heights that are specified in the manual of the hand dryer before installation.

If you are installing more than one dryer, you need to space them properly in the space that is available.

The surface mount dryers are provided with conduit entrances for both surface wiring and in wall wiring. Install the dryer for indoor use only.
