Are db ear defenders required in gent's toilets?

Why are  hand dryers so noisy in gent's toilets? 


They are like a jet air liner taking off. 


Has the Health and safety Exec. ever done any tests on the db rating?


 


That racket is very disconcerting when one is doing something and you cannot put your fingers in


your ears to reduce the noise either. :)  


 


Careful guys how you answer, the mods are watching. :D

I agree. The ones in our local Tesco superstore are so powerful and noisy that I'm sure they are about to rip off the wall and blast a hole in the ceiling.

To be honest, I always wash my hands after, but don't use the driers! I'm a Drip dry sort of guy! 🙌👠😃

Me too Stephen, or maybe a quick rub on my jeans  :lol:


 


But to answer the question, why can't they just change the frequency at which these noisy dryers work at.

I did wonder where this one was going. :lol:


I have to agree the new high velocity dryers are a heck of a lot noisier. Have you seen the price of the Dyson ones, nearly a grand. :o

I guess it's all about speed and efficiency, people want it to be a fast, companies want it to be cost efficient, but cheap high speed means high noise... The solution might be to put driers in another room and you stick your hands through the wall into the drier, if you are brave enough!

Perhaps we should complain more

You have to admire the engineering side and the efficiency of them.


Look back 10 years or more, then compare what we have now.


 


I used to like the Dyson design where you lowered your hands in, them slowly raised them. Hey presto....dry !


But even thats been superseeded.

Wife says they are just as noisy in hers.


Although this is a hair dryer and not a hand dryer I thought it so clever and funny I just had to share it. :)
