CUSTOM FIT SOLUTIONS
Just like one size fits all work boots are probably not the best choice, neither is one size fits all hearing protection. Every human ear is unique in size, shape and depth. Therefore it makes sense that for hearing protection to be the most effective, as well as the most comfortable, it must be custom fit.
Our custom fitting process usually takes about 10 minutes and typically begins with one of our highly trained experts visiting the customer’s plant or workplace in order to do the fitting on-site.
We begin by first inspecting the ear to make sure it’s safe to take an impression. Then an oto-dam is placed inside the ear to protect the eardrum. Impression material is prepared and carefully injected into the client’s ear. The material hardens quickly, and moments later, the impression is gently removed.
The impression creates an exact replica of the wearer’s ear canal and outer ear. This ensures the dB Blocker seals the ear both in the canal and around the ear. Making every dB Blocker unique to the ear it fits.
Please note that there is a “break in” period–The Hearing Protection Device should only be worn for 2 hours the first day. This time may be increased by two hours each day for the following week. It is important to lubricate the The Hearing Protection Device with CPE lubricant for the first 10 times they are worn or after washing. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.
