Discover Quieter Hand Dryers with Less Noise
In restaurants, offices, and schools, noise from hand dryers can be a distraction. It can affect the ability of staff and pupils to concentrate, and diners may find the disturbance off-putting when eating a meal. Installing quieter, low noise hand dryers in your bathrooms and taking steps to reduce the sound levels will help to improve your venue.
How Much Noise do Hand Dryers Create
Traditional hand dryers can create as much as 85dB of noise when in use. This is the equivalent of the noise of heavy traffic from the side of a busy road. Additionally, the frequencies of sound from hand dryers can be penetrating. In tiled bathrooms, the noise can be amplified by the hard surfaces making the problem worse.
Hand dryers produce a variety of different noises – high pitched sounds can emanate from the motor and fan assembly, and the turbulent air from the nozzle creates lower frequencies that are easily transmitted through walls and doors into the surrounding area.
