Personal Users what choices do you have?

Personal Users what choices do you have?

ProtectHear® not only manufactures ear plugs suitable for the working environment but also to accommodate needs for personal users. Here are the ear plugs we have to offer:

Sleep ear plugs – The difference with our sleep plugs are that they are canal length only and hollowed on the outer face for comfort. The sleep plugs lower background noise allowing you to sleep easy, yet still allowing you to hear noises such as fire alarms.

Shoot ear plugs – We supply CENS (Custom Electronic Noise Suppressors) which are made from either acrylic or a soft silicone material. They allow noise through to enable communication, but also shut down noise from gunfire as they are equipped with active electronics.

Bike ear plugs – At speed the noise in your motorbike helmet can exceed the given limit for noise protection. Our ear plugs are designed to block out wind noise and motorbike noise so you can ride your bike with full protection.

Swim ear plugs – Our swim range is designed to prevent water entering the ear canal and offers comfort and protection. If they are removed in the water they are retrievable as they float.

Our music range can be divided into active and passive:

Musician ear plugs (passive) – The ER passive range allows louder sounds to be blocked, whilst allowing lower frequencies pass through. Users can appreciate the sound that comes through to enjoy the experience, but can be assured that it is at a safe level. All frequencies are given a flat response, so pitch and tones are maintained for all sounds and our plugs are available in 3 levels of reduction.

Music ear plugs (active) – We supply i-monitor pros which are compatible with mp3 players and smartphones. These ear plugs produce a high quality hi-fi sound and are a comfortable and fashionable way of listening to music.

Earplugs in the Food Industry

Earplugs in the Food Industry

Earplugs are used in a range of different sectors from food and drink to engineering, noise is always an issue in production, the two options to prevent this are provision of hearing protection or reducing the noise at source.

We supply over 1000 companies with our custom moulded earplugs and have been operating since 2000. This year we were pleased to welcome many new food customers to the ever growing list, with our ProtectHear® being approved by all Food Safety committees. In the food sector hearing protection is particularly important as the machinery makes constant noise, exceeding the 85 dB level where hearing protection is mandatory.

Another consideration with food is hygiene, the ear plugs must meet a certain standard being metal detectable and non-harmful if dropped into any of the production lines.   Our ProtectHear® can be worn with all forms of PPE and offer supreme comfort to those working in noisy areas all through the day. We can also offer communication accessories to fit any radio.
