Have you ever been in a washroom and noticed a black hand dryer in there? Well, as it turns out, not only are they incredibly stylish, but they are also helpful for visually impaired people! The contrast between a black hand dryer and a light-coloured wall makes it much easier for people with sight problems to locate the hand dryer.
The majority of hand dryers in washrooms tend to be white, which you may think makes the washroom look sleek and aesthetically pleasing. However, it makes it challenging for individuals with visual difficulties to locate the hand dryer from the wall.
And get this - studies have shown that black hand dryers are less distracting than brightly coloured ones. Black hand dryers can be super helpful for visually impaired individuals who may become overwhelmed by too much visual stimulation.
Sensors that activate the hand dryer can often be tricky for visually impaired folk to find and use. A black hand dryer against a contrasting wall helps them a lot, allowing them to dry their hands efficiently.
Remember next time you come across a black hand dryer, it’s not just about style, it’s about accessibility for visually impaired users.
