Keep things peaceful with a practically silent hair dryer
A quiet hair dryer is a rare find in a hotel room, and hair dryers in general are an often overlooked source of noise nuisance in this industry.
In truth, most standard hair dryers bellow hot air at the level of 85 dB. That’s nearly as loud as a bulldozer engine. This can be disruptive to hotel guests – especially when used late at night or early in the morning.
Hotel and B&B guests can be particularly demanding customers, so anything you can do to maintain a peaceful setting for them will avert the risk of complaints and greatly benefit your business.
Operating at just 65 dB, our range of practically silent hair dryers are the ideal antidote.
How loud are hand dryers?
The hand dryer noise level in some washrooms can be unpleasant.
While many hand dryers are under 85 dBA, about a third of the models tested averaged over 100 dBA. Sounds that are 100 dBA can damage your hearing in less than 15 minutes of exposure per day. Thankfully, a new breed of high-powered, low-noise hand dryers has emerged to help reduce discomfort that this can cause.
The Elerillo hand dryer for instance is an Ultra Low Noise hand dryer and is only 69 dB. All the products featured on this page have a noise level below 75dB.
Quiet hand dryer noise comparison
Special noise comparison tests are usually carried out on new dryer models to help consumers determine which are the best quiet hand dryers on the market.
To compare the noise output of different models, manufacturers measure the decibel level of a hand dryer from a distance of 1 metre, inside a soundproof chamber.
There is some increase in noise levels when hands are positioned under/in the dryer. Sound can also bounce off the walls of the bathroom. This is something that should be taken into account when checking the technical specification of your hand dryer.
Developed by Japan’s most iconic bathroom technology brand, TOTO hand dryers produce as little as 57 dB of noise. That makes them some of the quietest dryers in the world – and four times quieter than their main European competitors.
