ZenPlugs - The Ultimate PPE Ear Plugs Protect Against Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
It is important to invest in the best PPE ear plugs you can find if you are regularly exposed to very loud noises. This will protect you against noise-induced hearing loss. The following people are at high risk of deafness if they don't use the right hearing protection;
- Factory Workers
- Shipyard Workers
- Oil rigs
- Military use
These groups are all at risk of deafness from excessive sound volume. Sound is energy transmitted through the air to your ears. This energy has the ability to cause irreversible damage to your hearing.
Many of us will have experienced mild temporary hearing loss and tinnitus after going to a loud club or party. This is the first sign of noise-induced hearing loss. If you expose yourself to excessive noise levels repeatedly or for long episodes you are at risk of the problem becoming permanent. This is a very important cause of hearing loss because it is entirely preventable through the use of the best hearing protection you can find.
ZenPlugs are ideal because they are a joy to wear due to their high comfort level and extreme ability to block sound. They are ideal for use in noisy work environments. This is because they block sound, are brightly coloured and can be connected using the supplied cord to help stop you losing them. The plugs are also incredibly easy to make; our process is unique and has a patent pending.
What Are The Advantages Of Molded PPE Ear Plugs?
Many people are aware that molded PPE ear plugs are the best type available, but what makes them so great? Here are a few reasons why they are better.
Comfort. The plugs being fitted to each ear individually so they are shaped to each curve of your canal. This means that they exert no outward pressure, leading to superior comfort levels. Foam earplugs in particular tend to be uncomfortable due to them expanding and exerting pressure on the lining of your ear canal.
Effectiveness. The custom fit of the plugs gives a highly effective seal against sound and water. This makes custom plugs ideal for use when protecting your hearing and keeping water from your ears. ZenPlugs are unusual as they can be made at home in a few minutes rather than having to visit the audiology clinic regularly to have them made. They are the only remoldable molded ear plugs in the world. They also cost far less than other types of molded earplugs.
Versatility. Due to the effectiveness at blocking sound and water molded earplugs are ideal for all uses, unlike other types. Wax and soft silicon plugs tend to only be good for blocking water as the stickiness often makes them unusable at night in bed. ZenPlugs are ideal for preventing noise-induced hearing loss, as well as aiding sleep at night.
Hygiene. As they are wiped clean, washable and nonporous, molded earplugs are more hygienic than other types. ZenPlugs are unique because they contain a powerful antibacterial. This destroys all bacteria known to cause ear infections. Early signs of an ear infection (otitis) include soreness and itching. It may be that your foam ear plugs are introducing bacteria and causing the micro-environment of your ear canal to become warm and moist. This makes it an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. Switch to molded earplugs to remedy this situation.
