Why should I protect my ears from loud noise?

Exposure to loud noises can permanently damage your ears.
The louder the noise, for greater lengths of time, the greater the risk of hearing damage.

Snugs Custom-Fit Earplugs provides the best acoustic seal and maximum sound blockage, thus allowing for longer, safer exposure time to loud noises.

Noise protection is an important consideration as it is law that an employer supplies ear defenders or ear plugs to workers exposed to 80 decibels or more of noise. Employers are liable in many jurisdictions if the employees damage their hearing.

We manufacture and supply the best noise protection to help ensure companies conform to the noise at work act regulations.

Comparing different products on the market can be difficult. The higher the NRR number in USA or SNR in Europe, the greater the potential for noise reduction. However, the security of fit and canal seal in a real world situation will alter the rating which is why Snugs custom-fit have a more reliable rating than universal fit or foam earplugs.

For Employers: 

Snugs Industrial Hearing Protection is custom fit for maximum comfort, particularly in prolonged use. Fit security ensures maximum hearing protection rating performance. Also ensure dirt, dust, liquids as well as noise don’t get into your workers ears. We offer repeatable attenuation levels and performance across a team.

Situation appropriate sound attenuation can be created by fitting filters with different levels of noise isolation for different applications.

Noise can permanently damage hearing by a single brief exposure to a loud noise, such as an explosion. Hearing damage can also occur gradually at much lower levels of noise. To protect hearing, exposure to high acoustic levels should be limited giving ears the chance to recover.

Ear defenders are often not worn correctly, or continuously, if they are uncomfortable. Our industrial hearing protection can be worn for long periods without any discomfort. They last for years and are a cost-effective way for health and safety conscious employers to deal with the high noise levels of industrial environments.

From experience we have found that supplying the best earplugs means users will wear them.

Hearing protectors must be tested and approved in the USA by the the American National Standards (ANSI) and CE certified in Europe.

Noise Reduction Ratings Explained:  Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is a unit of measurement used to determine the effectiveness of hearing protection devices to decrease sound exposure within a given working environment. Classified by their potential to reduce noise in decibels (dB), a term used to categorise the power or density of sound.
