Ear Protection

Ear protection is vitally important when you are in a noisy environment, it helps to avoid any of those ringing noises from exposing to loud noises and without risking the effectiveness of your ears in the long term.

Ear protection is an essential requirement against noise exposure both level and duration of exposure. Different types of ear protection include ear defenders, electronic ear defenders and earplugs. It is important that the right type of equipment is selected to allow for safe noise reduction and communication.

Our ear defenders offer a lightweight fitment with hearing protection up 39 dB. All ear defenders offer a foam cup for comfort around the ear for prolonged use. Communicating ear defenders offer all the protection whilst giving you the option to listen to music when working and communicating with colleagues.
