How does Quiet Mark test products?

The science behind the sound

  • Specialised teams and labs carry out a series of scientific tests to assess noise levels of products.
  • Several criteria are used to determine the quietness of products, decibel levels being one of them.
  • Products in the same category are compared for fair assessment.
  • Only the top 10-20% of the quietest products in each category earn the Quiet Mark certification, ensuring trustworthy choices for customers.
  • It's worth noting that the tests are re-run every year to ensure that the quietest products are rightly certified each time.
