Installation of School Hand Dryers
When installing hand dryers in a school bathroom, it is essential that they are appropriately placed to ensure that children can access them properly and comfortably, and that they are located in an area that minimises disruption and allows for easy use of bathrooms.
Minimising Noise and Reducing Congestion
When placing hand dryers within the bathrooms in a school, it is important to position them in a way that allows for users to avoid crossing paths. This prevents congestion in the bathroom during busy periods and allows children to wash and dry their hands more efficiently.
Avoid placing hand dryers directly opposite doors or against a wall shared with a classroom to minimise the amount of noise transmitted into surrounding areas where it could distract pupils. Similarly, avoid placing hand dryers in a narrow area of the bathroom where they can create an echo, as even a quieter model can cause a disturbance.
