LoBel Earplugs

Washable & Reusable, Non-absorbing, Peg Type “LoBel” earplugs

In many industries, workers are exposed to a high level of noise. Normal tolerance of human body is about 80 to 85 dBs. As you are quite aware, 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 your productivity. Such prolonged exposure, ultimately may result in total DEAFNESS.

KATALIST Safety Systems is a priority sector registered manufacturing S.S.I. Unit No. 111922435 Dtd. 12/09/1995. We developed “LoBel” Earplugs. Before we introduced “LoBel”, market had various brands of Ear Plugs with one problem or the other. “Sponge type Ear Plugs” - which maximum industries were using, owing to its absorbing and porous structure, have a short use span & hence were proving costly

The sponge type earplugs are held between two fingers to squeeze and inserted blocking the ear canal. Sponge type earplugs being porous and absorbing type, absorb every thing including dust, ear fluids & wax in the ear and dirt or chemicals present on soiled fingers of the wearer. 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/day in contact with tender ear skin? Besides, ever threatening possibility of contamination of ear due to this accumulation can not be neglected. In Indian Industry consider possibility of exchange of these earplugs by the workers which increases this possibility many times.

To overcome this hazard of Contamination and Infection KATALIST introduced user friendly peg type “LoBel” earplugs. Here it is not required DO NOT HOLD THE SURFACE AREA OF CONTACT. Instead, you hold the stem provided to insert the plug in place. The same hygienic material that is used for “LoBel” is used. It is non-porous & non-absorbing, avoids the absorption of any dirt and they are free from any allergies. Being conical in shape, they get adapted to any size of ear canal. Conversation is easily possible with earplugs on. A cord joins the pair.

The sponge type earplugs thus prove to be UNSAFE, if not used as disposable type. Sponge type earplugs are termed as “Disposable type” by their manufacturers and ours is “100% INDIGENOUS product “Reusable type”.

Here are the results of “LoBel” when tested at National Physical Lab., New Delhi
