Are all warm air hand dryers loud?

Want Quiet? Some Hand Dryers Are Louder Than Others

Libraries, offices, or public government buildings where excess noise is not appreciated can seek out quieter models of automatic electric dryers. For example, the Galaxy model of hand dryer, manufactured by Holyoke, Massachusetts-based Stiebel Eltron, has a noise level of just 54 decibels, compared with noise levels in the 60-70-decibel range that arecommon in many models. The Galaxy also has an infrared motion sensor, so it will not start blowing air until the hands are held under the dryer, which further minimizes the noise.
