Hearing Protection Experts 3M Launch New Range of Award-winning Ear Defenders

3M has announced the launch of the Peltor X ear defenders series, a new range of ear defenders offering enhanced comfort and protection.

Awarded the red dot prize for excellence in product design, the series was created in collaboration with customers, utilising more than 40 years of 3M expertise in the field of hearing protection. The Peltor X ear defenders range by 3M consists of five different models offering increasing levels of protection, each available as a headband or helmet-mounted version giving ten products in total. The range is colour-coded to provide easy recognition between levels, while the modern styling and comfortable fit can help to aid workplace compliance.

Sarah Broadbent, technical services engineer for the 3M Personal Safety Division, explains: "Combining the latest attenuation techniques with the leading features of our existing Peltor brand Optime ear defenders range from 3M has led to the development of the Peltor X Series. Intended for use within a broad range of industries, the new range has been designed with our three core pillars of product development in mind - design, comfort and protection.

"The five levels of protection offered by the Peltor X Series from 3M make it suitable for a wide range of industries and applications, while the new foam sealing rings on the higher attenuating ear defenders minimise bulk, making it easy to incorporate with other pieces of personal protective equipment without compromising on safety."

As experts in hearing conservation, not just hearing protection, 3M can offer holistic solutions from detection to selection and from training to validation.
