Xlerator
 
 
The new xlerator hand dryers found in restrooms such as the Royal Farms store in [REDACTED] are piercingly and painfully loud. I have literally cried out in pain on a couple of occasions and have had to cover my ears on all where they are in use when I am in the restroom. I am shocked they are even legal at the volume they operate at. I cannot and will not use them due to their logic defying noise level and will leave the restroom with wet hands if need be.
