Slim hand dryers have become increasingly popular as new buildings look to standardise automatic hand dryers throughout their premises, rather than having separate slim dryers for accessible toilets. As motor technology has become more compact the performance of slimline hand dryers has radically increased. We provide a large range of slim hand dryers from Dryflow hand dryers to World Dryer hand dryers, mostly under 10cm in depth to confirm with the globally recognised standards for disabled washrooms.
Slim hand dryers are recommended for use in disabled or accessible public bathrooms as they help to maximise the space for wheelchair users and in baby changing areas with fold-down tables.
Maximising space isn't just important for disabled washrooms, space is at a premium in many locations, and the slimmer the safer. Adult hand dryers are often located at the height of small children's heads, so a slim model is less likely to be bumped into and easier to keep clean. These are why they are popular hand dryers for schools.
The Dyson HU02 led the way in innovation and a number of other brands including Dolphin, Dyson, and Mediclinics now produce slim models. Slim-line has now become the ideal standard, the first popular alternatives were the Dryflow Ecowave, Ecoslim, Elite and the World Dryer Verdedri.
