The Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group has upgraded its popular Bilsom brand Viking series noise blocking earmuffs to incorporate its patented Air Flow Control technology (AFC), which delivers optimal attenuation across all frequencies without increasing ear-cup size or weight.
Bilsom Viking series multi-position headbands give workers the flexibility to wear their earmuffs over-the-head, behind-the-head, or under-the-chin, allowing them to be worn with hard hats, face shields, respirators, and other PPE.
"Our Air Flow Control technology has proven so effective we're extending it to other products in the Bilsom Noise Blocking Earmuff segment," said Stephen Streatfeild, VP/GM for Bacou-Dalloz Australia.
"As sound travels through the air in our AFC earcups, a patented baseplate chamber and high-tech non-woven layer manages the flow of air inside the earmuff to control how sound reaches the ear," Streatfeild explained.
"The result is better, more consistent overall attenuation across all frequencies and in almost all industrial noise environments without increasing ear-cup size or weight."
Air Flow Control Technology has boosted attenuation on the V1 model to SLC80 28 dB/Class 5 and V2 model to SLC80 30 dB/Class 5. Attenuation on V3 increased to SLC80 32 dB/Class 5, and includes improved lower frequency attenuation.
Designed to provide all-day comfort, the Viking series earmuffs feature a dual-headband design with an inner ventilated band for better positioning and breathability and a non-deforming outer headband that minimizes pressure on the head.
An improved attached elastic headband strap provides additional comfort and helps to ensure attenuation when earmuffs are worn in other than over-the-head positions.
Snap-in ear cushions make replacement quick and easy, and dielectric construction with rugged ABS plastic makes Viking series earmuffs suitable for almost all workplaces and especially for electrical and mining environments.
Bilsom was founded in Sweden in 1968 and leads the industry in developing innovative sound management technologies that are used in some of the challenging environments in the world.
Combining the innovation and expertise of Howard Leight Earplugs and Bilsom Earmuffs, the Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group is a leader in hearing safety.
