Hearing protection leader Howard Leight has announced the availability of PerCap, the only folding banded earplugs available in the personal protection equipment (PPE) market. A semi-aural protector, PerCap’s soft polyurethane ear pods seal the opening of the ear canal and offer lower attenuation, making them ideal for workers exposed to low levels of hazardous noise. “PerCap offers workers a true alternative in hearing protection,” said Renee Bessette, COHC, Senior Marketing/Communications Specialist. “Many workers are exposed to either intermittent or lower levels of hazardous noise. PerCap’s folding design offers convenient access as it is easy to stow in a pocket and don when hearing protection is needed. Plus, its non-intrusive ear pods are ideal for workers who do not like to insert earplugs into their ear canals.” Extremely lightweight, PerCap offers wearers a high degree of comfort over both short and long periods of time. PerCap’s multiple-position band can be worn under-the-chin, over-the-head and behind-the-neck. Optimal attenuation, NRR 21, is obtained when PerCap is worn under-the-chin, and NRR 20 when worn properly in the two alternative positions, providing reliable protection for many workplaces.
