Custom ear plugs
The main purpose is to keep ears safe from various environmental dangers. Repeated exposure to any sound above 85 decibels can lead to permanent hearing loss. Hearing protection is important for construction workers and musicians for example.
Custom ear plugs are shaped to the contours of your ear creating a secure natural fit. They are made from a soft medical grade material that doesn’t shrink or change shape.
When children suffer from repeated ear infections or glue ear grommets may be recommended. Grommets are small ventilation tubes inserted into the ear drum to prevent further fluid build up. Swim plugs are essential for children with grommets. It is very important to protect their ears from dirty water eg creeks, rivers, dams, pools and spas.
Surfers ear is an abnormal bone growth within the ear canal. The narrowing traps water and earwax in the canal and can cause painful ear infections and hearing loss. It is caused by repeated exposure to cold water and wind.
There are many noisy environments where noise plugs/ear protection are necessary. Noise in the workplace that exceeds the exposure of standard and is not controlled is a major cause of hearing loss to workers. Hearing loss in the workplace can contribute to lower work performance, worker turnover, increased absenteeism as well as workplace injuries and accidents. Noise is an unavoidable issue in many work environments therefore noise plugs/ear protection can be vital in these situations.
Musician plugs are suitable for singers, musicians and people of who work or enjoy live music. There are varying degree of attenuation available depending on your needs.
