What is Quiet Mark?
When consumers and trade buyers see the distinctive Quiet Mark Q logo on a product, they trust that it has been thoroughly tested and certified as one of the quietest available on the market.
In February 2020, they launched their Acoustics Academy to provide a new online directory of expertly verified solutions for every building type, to support the new era of responsible design.
What drove them to measuring acoustics of appliances and materials?
time to evaluate and compare the sound output of each product, yet an ear-splitting juicer
sounding off every morning, pings and bleeps from appliances, a rumbling shower pump or
annoying extractor affects concentration, makes one irritated and builds up unnecessary
stress which can affect health negatively in the long term.
The Quiet Mark team felt it was very important for consumers and trade buyers to have an expert definitive
guide to the quietest products currently on the market, year on year, across all product
categories. Quiet Mark was created as the trusted third-party certification programme to
serve public health, supported by expert acoustic evaluation.
