Quiet Mark partners with Good Housekeeping Institute, one of the most trusted and respected names in the UK and US and responsible for testing and reviewing thousands of products for the benefit of its readers. The rigorous acoustic testing process includes category re-evaluation annually to continually raise the bar for acoustic design. To support consumer health, Quiet Mark has drawn together a unique alliance of leading retailers who are helping shoppers to find the quietest appliance technology available on the market.
By highlighting the distinctive purple Quiet Mark as a trusted symbol, our retail partners are enabling consumers to make a more informed choice about quieter high- performance products they share their homes with. This is a powerful example of collective customer care to combat stress-related noise, an important health and environmental issue.
