Custom moulded hearing protection
25 March 2018
Emtec Laboratories is a UK manufacturer of the Noisebreaker custom moulded hearing protection, and has supplied many companies and individuals over the past 40 years.
The Noisebreakers are made from a medical-grade soft silicone rubber and are said to be very comfortable and cost effective. They also have a through channel with a filter allowing speech frequency sounds to be heard, but filter out the damaging middle-high frequencies.
Because of the through channel in the “ear plug” a person is not completely isolated from his/her surroundings and conversations and warning signals may be heard. Because custom moulded earplugs are made from a soft silicone rubber, they are a perfect fit to each ear, thus alleviating any problems of poor fit or discomfort, giving laboratory attenuation in the ‘real world.’ The Noisebreakers can also be comfortably worn under helmets or breathing apparatus.
With a long life expectancy and no moving parts to wear out, such products are very cost effective over time.
