Protective earmuffs protect an employee's hearing in work environments where noise levels are above 85 decibels. They consist of two lined cups that completely cover the ears to deaden sound. The cups attach to a headband for over-the-head wear or clip onto the sides of a hard hat. Protective earmuffs provide longer hearing protection at higher decibels than foam ear plugs.
Headset and earmuff hygienic pads and kits ensure equipment remains clean, safe and durable. Clean hygiene pads are single-use devices that absorb sweat and protect the original earmuff cushions. Replacement foam pads are ideal for headset maintenance and ensure consistent hearing protection. Headset and earmuff hygiene kits include pairs of sealing rings and foam inserts. A variety of hygiene kits are available for different headsets and earmuffs.
Protective earmuff replacement part kits include components that enhance the performance of existing hearing protection equipment. Replacement cushions restore the protection and comfort of earmuffs that have heavily worn or damaged cushions. Slim belt clips allow for a convenient way to carry earmuffs when not in use. Polar hoods provide thermal insulation while maintaining optimal hearing protection.
Ear plugs offer critical protection from loud noise caused by machinery, vehicles and other large pieces of equipment. They are typically made of dense foam that slowly expands inside the ear canal. Most ear plugs are single use and may have cords attached. Ear plug dispensers provide a convenient and hygienic method of dispensing ear plugs in facilities and on jobsites. They typically consist of a clear plastic container attached to a dispensing mechanism. Ear plug dispensers can hold individual ear plugs or packets that contain a pair of ear plugs. They are available in stand-alone and wall-mounted forms.
Fit test plugs are used to test how effective ear plugs are. They consist of an ear plug with a test probe. The probe measures the ear plug's personal attenuation rating (PAR) and determines if ear plugs are being worn correctly and if the work environment is too noisy for a certain type of ear plug.
