Ear protection for work
If you need ear protection plugs for your work or are self-employed working with noisy tools or plant suffering noise is unhealthy and can lead to increased blood pressure, stress and tiredness, not counting what it does to your hearing. Ear muffs are a short-term fix and ineffective, as often they are old and not maintained or safety glasses mean they don’t cover the ears properly. Off-the-shelf non-custom made earplugs do not fit properly and can be worse than useless.
Please refer to our website page Ear Protection - Business for more information on ear protection plugs for work.

Our Specialist Ear Plugs
The filter in these ear plugs has been specially developed to reduce sudden high volume sounds from being transmitted to the inner ear, giving the wearer protection when they need it while allowing normal hearing at all other times. The filter gives a constant noise reduction of approximately 15dB, increasing to a maximum of 33dB when activated by sudden high noise.
The small size of Impulse filters makes them unobtrusive and comfortable to wear, fitting easily under communications headsets or earmuffs where double protection is required.
The Impulse filter with custom mould has a constant noise SNR value of 15dB (estimated), suitable for continuous safe use to 100dB. ANSI IPIL certified impulse protection is 33.1 dB maximum.
Please ensure that a noise assessment is carried out on site before purchasing your hearing protection as it is imperative the correct protection level is used.
Do you need ear plugs for sleeping?
Many people have difficulty sleeping due either to their snoring partner, unnatural work pattern or because of living in a noisy environment and it can have very real consequences for your long term wellbeing. These sleep plugs were developed initially for shift workers who needed to sleep during the daytime, however users reported their effectiveness at reducing the level of their partners snoring to a degree where it became possible for them to sleep soundly without distraction.
Our ear plugs for sleeping are constructed from a very soft durable silicone, SleepSound is cut in such a way that it can be worn comfortably within the ear all night. SleepSound is produced in yellow as standard.
However, SleepSound is not guaranteed to reduce to ambient noise levels to any greater degree than a standard foam earplug. It will however offer greater comfort and fit. Laying with the ear on a pillow might affect the comfort.
These high fidelity earplugs reduce sound levels evenly so that music and speech are clear and natural, not muffled as with other earplugs.
Being exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods may mean you require different levels of protection depending on sound levels encountered. You may use a different type of attenuator in one ear than the other depending on the source / location of sound.
Swimplugs are custom moulded earpiece for swimmers and surfers or people with medical conditions, to keep the water out of their ears.
Made of soft high quality and anti-bacterial medical grade silicone material it is light enough to float on water. These are soft and very light, a perfect fit, safe and comfortable, easy to fit, fast and easy to clean and float on water.
