Increasingly so a new generation on hand dryers in restrooms across America are being installed. Most popular installed the “ XLERATOR DRYER MODEL XL-SB”. I reside in California so I’m assuming they have also been installed in all Target Stores across America, check it out. Personally my hearing was compromised likley by one single event before this incident and I have been advised to be aware and stay away avoid loud noise and when warranted to wear ear protection to avoid additional hearing loss. The decibels emitting from this unit is ear piercing to me seems to be unsafe to me! I was in the rest room at a Target store and it was even painfully loud just sitting in the enclosed stall.
