I'm sorry the noise from the hand-dryers is interrupting your work. We have made efforts to address this problem in the past by adjusting the power of the hand-dryers to make them quieter, however this means they need to be on for longer.  

We will continue to look for quieter alternatives but one of the main issues is that current hand-dryer manufacturers have a focus on energy efficiency, which results in speedier but noisier hand-dryers. Paper towels have been ruled out as they are much more wasteful than hand-dryers. Thank you for raising this issue for us.

All the best,
