3M launches new hearing protection range for mining

first_imgDiversified technology company 3M has announced the launch of the Peltor X ear defenders series, a new range of ear defenders offering enhanced comfort and protection. The Peltor X ear defenders range by 3M consists of five different models offering increasing levels of protection, each available as a headband or helmet-mounted version giving ten products in total. The Peltor X5 ear defenders model is protective enough to deal with high-noise environments such as mines and processing plants, offering “the highest attenuation of the range and the greatest level of protection currently available on the ear defender market” (SNR 37dB). The range is colour-coded to provide easy recognition between levels, while the modern styling and comfortable fit can help to aid workplace compliance.Sarah Broadbent, Technical Services Engineer for the 3M Personal Safety Division, says: “Combining the latest attenuation techniques with the leading features of our existing Peltor brand Optime ear defenders range by 3M has led to the development of the Peltor X Series. The Peltor X5 model in particular is ideally suited for mine staff who require the highest levels of protection against noise. The five levels of protection offered by the Peltor X Series from 3M make it suitable for a wide range of industries and applications, while the new foam sealing rings on the higher-attenuating products minimise bulk, making it easy to incorporate with other pieces of personal protective equipment without compromising on safety.”last_img read more
