Installation of Hand Dryers
As electrical appliances, hand dryers need to be professionally installed with the correct wiring and circuit breakers to protect users. Choosing the best location for hand dryers in a bathroom may require changes to the wiring and power outlet locations, although in modern buildings with wall trunking in place, this is straightforward.
Hand Dryer Locations
Safety should be your number one priority when installing a hand dryer. Installing the hand dryer close to the sink will reduce the amount of water that drips onto the floor from users and reduces slip hazards.
You should also consider the layout of the room as a whole. Bathroom users will follow a clear path through the room, from the entrance to the toilets, and then onto the washing basins. Positioning the hand dryer as a next natural step in this path is sensible and will help to prevent people cutting across each other.
While Mitsubishi Electric Wave hand dryers are among the quietest on the market, they still produce some noise. Avoid installing the dryer within a metre of an opposing wall to allow sound to dissipate and reduce the amount of noise which is transmitted out of the bathroom.
