Ear de­fend­ers with the X fac­tor

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

For more than 20 years, 3M Pel­tor has been a leading hear­ing con­ser­va­tion provider with a suite of high at­ten­u­at­ing and high com­fort hear­ing pro­tec­tion prod­ucts.

The X- Se­ries ear­muffs are 3M's lat­est ad­vance­ment in hear­ing con­ser­va­tion. New tech­nolo­gies in com­fort, de­sign and pro­tec­tion all come to­gether in this ground­break­ing ear­muff line. X- Se­ries ear­muffs fea­ture an in­no­va­tive new de­sign on the cup as well as a breath­able head­band. These ear­muffs are de­signed to be lighter than com­pet­ing ear­muffs while pro­vid­ing su­pe­rior at­ten­u­a­tion.

The X4A model uses a newly de­signed spacer, spe­cially for­mu­lated foam lin­ers and in­no­va­tive ear cush­ions to help im­prove at­ten­u­a­tion. This light­weight, lower-pro­file ear­muff helps with com­pat­i­bil­ity with other per­sonal pro­tec­tive equip­ment and is de­signed for pro­tec­tion against mod­er­ate-to-high level in­dus­trial noise and other loud sounds. It fea­tures an elec­tri­cally in­su­lated wire head­band, of­ten re­ferred to as “di­elec­tric”.

The X5 ear­muff of­fers 3M's high­est SLC80 (35dB) which makes them ideal for high noise en­vi­ron­ments. The high at­ten­u­a­tion de­liv­ered by the X5A ear­muffs is pos­si­ble as a re­sult of a com­bi­na­tion of ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing: newly de­signed spac­ers, spe­cially for­mu­lated earcup lin­ers and in­no­va­tive foam con­tained in the cush­ions. It also fea­tures an elec­tri­cally in­su­lated wire head­band, of­ten re­ferred to as 'di­elec­tric'.

“3M Pel­tor is at the fore­front of hear­ing con­ser­va­tion,” says Lu­ciana Macedo, 3M se­nior oc­cu­pa­tional hy­gien­ist.

“The in­tro­duc­tion of the X-Se­ries ear­muffs helps users with most noise ap­pli­ca­tions. The X-Se­ries de­liv­ers su­pe­rior at­ten­u­a­tion and greater user com­fort.”
