What should you look for in vandal-proof hand dryers for schools?

What makes Vandal-Proof Hand Dryers Effective?

To start off, it is better to understand what vandal-proof is. Vandalism-proof means “resistance to vandalism”. Equipment, buildings, or facilities built and designed to be vandalism-proof are made to withstand or not allow any form of vandalism. Being able to resist vandalism means the manufacturer must invest in the equipment’s build: material, impact resistance, and compactness of the equipment’s design. The equipment should have a sturdy and compact metal casing, and it could be cast iron or stainless steel and such. 

Why would schools need vandal-proof hand dryers?

Schools are among the places of high-use, high-vandalism situations. With the number of students constantly using facilities and equipment, there is a high possibility of equipment going out of order due to constant use or damage by vandalism. Hand Dryers installed in school restrooms will expect an influx of students using them from time to time. Usage, of course, is expected to wear out as time passes. However, vandalism can damage hand dryers from minor dents to hand dryers sustaining enough damage to put them out of order. A vandal-proof hand dryer will resist damage or destruction and will cost you much less to maintain than one that’s broken down by both vandalism and usage.
