Hand dryer manufacturers measure sound levels in terms of decibels dB(A) at a distance of 1 metre, in a sound proof chamber. This does not take into account the increase in noise when hands are positioned under/in the dryer or when the sound bounces off walls. Where possible, we supply manufacturer's stated dB(A), and 2 independent tests which are more reflective of 'real world conditions'.
