Hearing protection leader Howard Leight has launched PerCap folding banded earplugs for the personal protection equipment market.
A semi-aural protector, PerCap's soft polyurethane ear pods seal the opening of the ear canal and offer lower attenuation, making them ideal for workers exposed to low levels of hazardous noise.
"PerCap offers workers a true alternative in hearing protection," said Stephen Streatfeild, VP/GM for Bacou-Dalloz Australia.
"Many workers are exposed to either intermittent or lower levels of hazardous noise. PerCap's folding design offers convenient access as it is easy to stow in a pocket and don when hearing protection is needed. Plus, its non-intrusive ear pods are ideal for workers who do not like to insert earplugs into their ear canals."
Lightweight, PerCap offers wearers a high degree of comfort over both short and long periods of time. PerCap's multiple-position band can be worn under-the-chin, over-the-head and behind-the-neck. PerCap delivers optimal attenuation of SLC80 20 dB/Class 3 when worn properly, and provides reliable protection for many workplaces.
Originally developed by Howard Leight sister company Bilsom, PerCap has been enhanced by Howard Leight's patented polyurethane foam moulding technology and signature orange-coloured ear pods. Extending PerCap's performance, replacement ear pods are available separately.
Combining the innovation and expertise of Howard Leight Earplugs and Bilsom Earmuffs, the Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group is a world leader in hearing safety.
