The business

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is one of the world’s leading museums of natural history and world culture, welcoming more than one million visitors each year.

The problem

As a history museum, preservation is at the ROM’s heart. So during the building’s expansion, architects were seeking an environmentally friendly hand drying solution that could also cope with the museum’s high visitor numbers.
