  • The ear defenders must not be exposed to chemicals.
  • The audibility of warning signals is impaired when wearing the ear defenders.
  • The ear defenders must be adjusted in accordance with the instructions so that they fit the user’s head.
  • The ear defenders, and in particular the sealing rings, can deteriorate over time and should be examined frequently to make sure they are not cracked and do not admit noise.

USE

  1. Make sure that there is no hair under the sealing rings. Remove earrings that prevent the sealing rings from sealing tightly.
  2. Place the headband over your head and adjust the cups so that they cover your ears.
  3. Move the cups up or down in the headband to adjust them, so that they fit firmly and comfortably and seal around the ears.
  4. Check the fit by talking loudly. Your voice should sound muffled. Ambient noise should sound weaker than without the ear defenders.
  5. Check that the cups’ sealing rings sit firmly against your head and around your ears.

NOTE: Pull hair away from your ears and use glasses with thin frames to minimize the admission of noise. Never attempt to change the shape of the headband.

MAINTENANCE

CLEANING 

  • Clean with a sponge or cloth moistened with a mild detergent. Never use alcohol or solvents.

Depending on usage, the ear defenders should be disinfected roughly every three months. The parts of the ear defenders that come into contact with the skin should be disinfected with an alcohol solution.
