Five Years’ Mileage out of each pair of our ear plugs

Five Years’ Mileage out of each pair of our ear plugs

Lifespan

ProtectHear® custom ear plugs are designed to have a lifespan of five years. Like all areas of the body our ears change shape over time, and through many years of perfecting our product the fit and integrity of your ProtectHear® ear plugs is guaranteed for 5 years. Made from a soft hypoallergenic silicone (shore hardness 25) it is the softest custom ear plug on the market. We offer factory tool-box talks too, to ensure your workers’ ear plugs last the full five years. We also have a video on our website, with tips on how to take care of your ProtectHear® ear plugs.

Are ProtectHear® ear plugs good for the environment?

With a lifespan of 5 years 1 pair of custom ear plugs equates to a potential 4800 pairs of disposable ear plugs ending up in landfill. Industry average shows that workers tend to use up to 4 pairs of disposables per day, for various reasons, so over 240 working days in a year by 5 years, we are looking at 4800 pairs per worker. Multiply this up by your workforce then the whole of the UK industry and size of impact becomes apparent. ProtectHear® ear plugs are toxilogically inert too, which is far better for the environment.

There are significant cost savings to be made too!

With so many disposables used over a 5 year period compared to one set of ProtectHear® custom ear plugs, there are significant cost savings that can be made. In fact on average ProtectHear® can save approximately £400 per employee over 5 years, by switching from disposables. You can use our Cost Savings Calculator to forecast your savings.

What are the Warranty Terms?

ProtectHear® custom ear plugs are warranted for the full 5 year lifespan of the product, the only time this may not be eligible is if damage is caused, as a result of misuse of the product. This does not affect your statutory rights under Consumer Law.

Don’t just take our word for it; this is what EDF Energy had to say…

“I prefer ProtectHear® to disposable ear plugs as they are very easy to fit and comfortable in use and an added bonus is that the cost savings are genuine compared to disposables. When you start to do the maths in comparison to using 4-5 pairs of disposable earplugs a day the money saving over the life span of the ProtectHear® which are purchased with a one off payment becomes quite significant.” – Shaun Penn EDF Energy Ltd.

Can my Company trial ProtectHear® ear plugs?

Yes, ProtectHear® offer a ‘Try Before you Buy’ where up to 10 people can be trialled over an 8 week period. If you decide to move forward with the product, then we would invoice you for the trial and book an appointment to take impressions for the rest of your workforce. If you wish to return the ear plugs then there will be no costs incurred at all.
