Extra Quiet Hand Dryers Comparison

Today, many electric hand dryers have very similar performance. They all dry your hands in about 10 seconds, have comparable energy requirements (approximately 1.5kW) and last around five years. However, one feature that sets these dryers apart is the amount of noise they produce.

Noise levels are normally tested in decibels. Due to being measured on a sliding scale, a few additional decibels can result in double the noise level, meaning 81dB is twice the volume of 75dB and 86dB is four times the volume of 75dB.

Hand dryer manufacturers are starting to pay more attention to noise output, as other differentiators between dryers narrows, along with noise and comfort levels in work becoming more important to both employers and their staff.
