Reuseable Ear Plugs

Our clients can avail from us superior-quality Reuseable Ear Plugs that are available in various specifications as per the diverse needs of the clients. These plugs are inserted in the ear canal to protect the user's ears from loud noises or the intrusion of water, foreign bodies, dust or excessive wind. In order to design these plugs, our professionals use the advanced machinery and superior-quality raw material. Offered Ear Plugs are thoroughly tested on various parameters by our quality controllers to ensure their flawlessness.

Features:

  • Soft texture

  • Durability

  • Fine finish

  • Dimensional accuracy


In many industries, workers are exposed to a high level of noise. Normal tolerance of human body is 80 to 85 dBs. The workers who are exposed to such noise abuse, for a long time are subject to irritation, fatigue, loss of concentration, anxiety, disorientation, rise in blood pressure & heart beats resulting in loss of their efficiency and directly affects productivity. Such prolonged exposure, ultimately may result in total deafness.


We have developed Earplugs from a special, hygienically acceptable material and are being marketed under the Brand name. They are ultra soft, non-irritating and inert to allergies. They do not affect the tender ear skin. Once is in position, being ultra soft, its presence ia hardly felt and they are infinitely more comfortable than the cumbersome earmuffs. These Earplugs have proved their superiority over sponge type due to their economical & reusable nature and more safe as they are non porous. These are tested for allergies in Mumbai.

 

In the market various brands of Earplugs were available with one problem or the other, before we introduced our LoBel Sponge type Ear Plugs were in use in maximum industries. Owing to its absorbing and porous structure, they have a short use span & hence were proving costly. Sponge type earplugs are termed as disposable type by their manufacturers and Lobel Reusable type. They can be washed in soap and light antiseptic solution.

The sponge type earplugs to squeeze, are held between two fingers and inserted blocking the ear canal. Sponge type earplugs being porous, absorb every thing that comes its way including dust, ear fluids, ear wax and dirt or deposits from soiled hands or gloves of the worker. These cannot be washed, as they are absorbing type. What happens when the surface area of contact of earplugs, which has absorbed everything that is present on the fingers of the wearer, is held in position for 5-6 may be even 8-10 hours in contact with tender ear skin? Besides, ever threatening possibility of contamination of ear due to this accumulation can not be neglectd. Consider possibility of exchange of these earplugs by the workers and thus increasing this possibility many times. The sponge type earplugs thus prove to be UNSAFE, if not used as disposable type.


To overcome this hazard KATALIST introduces peg type earplugs wherein the surface area of contact is not held.  Instead, the stem is held provided to insert the plug in place. The insertion in the ear is absolutely easy.  Earplugs, to cut down the mono-tone of colour, are available in four attractive and pleasing colours.

We do not manufacture foam type earplugs

 

Technical evaluation committee scrutinising Foam type versus Peg Type of earplugs will have to make a PRUDENT decision

 

Shall workers Contaminate their ear ?

 

This hazard of foam type earplugs has not been given a serious thought, so far.

 

Foam type earplugs, as their manufacturers claim, are disposable type. The worker who uses it, does not wash his hands while putting them on or taking them out. Their material being porous, absorb anything and everything present on his fingers oil, lubricants, dust, water, chemicals, grease and many more. These absorbed contents remain in contact with the tender ear skin  for 8 hours in a shift. We certainly know that in Indian Economy these earplugs are not used as throw away (disposable) type. This means the contaminating contents listed above, keep on accumulating and increase the hazard, use after use after use. Thus, the earplugs get dirty and look filthy in 8-10 days in any industry, if they are used every time.

This contact of contaminating material listed above may lead to serious illnesses. LoBel
ear plugs being non-porous, can be washed in any anti-septic solution and used again and again for much longer period.

We must now realise that India has been a dumping ground for unwanted or unsafe material of WEST for many years now. Indigenous LoBel
is soft, equally comfortable, economical and above all SAFE than foam type.

Foam type earplugs are cheaper and economical - a popular MYTH.

As narrated above, in India the foam type earplugs are used again and again though unsafe, LoBel earplugs can be used for much longer period i.e. 10 & 20 life cycles of foam type. In short, foam type are NOT SAFE and NOT economical either.


Manufacturers of foam type earplugs have recently introduced washable and reusable ear plugs.


100% Indigenously manufactured EQUALLY COMFORTABLE and SAFE alternative by way of LoBel is available in much economical way. Make a PRUDENT decision.
