*NOTE: One dryer for every two washbasins is sufficient for most applications. If restroom traffic is unusually heavy, we suggest one dryer per washbasin in small installations, and two dryers for every three washbasins in larger installations. When a 54" round-type washbasin is used, we suggest four to five dryers. In multiple installations, one dryer should be mounted at recommended height for the handicapped.
