Automatic paper towel dispenser

Is it possible to decrease the amount of paper towel that is provided by the automatic dispensers?  It seems to me that ~12” is not necessary to dry your hands.  I have been in restaurants and airports where 6” is supplied.

Hurtis Hodges of the Facilities Management Division responds:

It is possible to decrease the amount of paper towel dispensed from the automatic dispensers.  I’m many cases, this dispenser has an adjustment for approximately 8”, 12” and 16”. The sheet length of 12” is identified as the optimal hand dry capacity is some of the manufacturers literature.
