Quiet Hand Dryers - Low-Noise Dryers

In order to dry your hands more quickly, the motors in most modern hand dryers run at an extremely high rate. The result is that - generally speaking - our hand-drying experience is getting better, more thorough and more hygienic. Unfortunately, there are side effects to this like the combination of high motor speeds with huge volumes of air being taken in or output through the mechanisms creating a lot of loud noise.

In certain situations, this is a real problem. For example, one of our customers had to replace their dryers because they were in an office washroom which was next to a conference room, and when the dryers were used the noise interrupted the meetings in the conference room. In another, a nursery's machine began to frequently disturb the infants, disrupting their learning and eventually causing some sour tempers!

So manufacturers are making an effort to reduce the noise levels created by their motors, but inevitably still a trade-off between power and noise which you need to make.  This choice is made more complicated by the fact that the size, shape and construction of your washroom significantly affect the actual noise level. We have listed below a selection of quiet hand dryers. They all have a manufacturer’s decibel rating of below 75, but our most important advice would be not to go for as quiet as possible, as you may be sacrificing more power than you need to. Choose from the full range here with our Hand Dryer Buying Guide. One great alternative is to select a dryer which could be adjusted such as the JETBOX Eco so you can get exactly the right balance.

These types of hand dryers are designed to operate at a lower volume, ensuring that users can dry their hands without causing any disturbance to others around them. In this article, we will explore some of the applications where quiet hand dryers are commonly used.

One of the most common applications for quiet hand dryers is in public restrooms. These facilities are often located in places like libraries, hospitals, and offices, where quiet is important for concentration or healing. Quiet hand dryers ensure that users can dry their hands without creating unnecessary noise pollution that can be disruptive to others. Additionally, quiet hand dryers can be a great alternative to paper towels, as they are more environmentally friendly and reduce the amount of waste generated in these spaces.

Another application where quiet hand dryers are commonly used is in hotels and restaurants. These facilities often have high levels of foot traffic and require hand dryers that are both efficient and quiet. Quiet hand dryers allow guests to dry their hands discreetly without causing a disturbance to other patrons or staff. Additionally, the quiet operation of these hand dryers can contribute to a more peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, which is especially important in hospitality settings.

Finally, quiet hand dryers are also commonly used in schools and childcare facilities. These settings require hand dryers that are not only quiet but also safe for children to use. Quiet hand dryers can help to create a calm and quiet environment for young students, while also reducing the risk of injury or accidents that can occur with louder, more powerful hand dryers.

In conclusion, quiet hand dryers are a popular solution for a wide range of environments where noise levels need to be kept to a minimum. They are commonly used in public restrooms, hotels and restaurants, schools, and childcare facilities. These hand dryers allow users to dry their hands without causing a disturbance to others and can contribute to a more peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
