Ear Protection Laws

As of April 6th 2006 it became law for employers to supply hearing protection if employees are exposed to 85dB of noise. This is the equivalent of standing on a busy residential road. Our industrial custom ear plugs are used by blue chip companies to owner operations, indeed as testament to our ingenuity; we've even designed specific industrial ear plugs to be detectable, a necessity in the food industry.

Studies have shown that one half of workers that wear ear defenders receive half or less of the protection they should. This is because their ear defenders are not worn correctly or continuously due to improper or uncomfortable fit. Ear plugs that are comfortable fit every time and are also easy to use; the result of this is that the user wears them, and that they do the job.

"It's a Long Way Down Charley!"

ultimate supplied Charley Boorman with motorcycle ear plugs. The motorcycle industry is our oldest customer base, and in looking at our motorcycle ear plugs Charley recognised that our products are designed for motorcyclists by motorcyclists. His satisfaction resulted in ultimate supplying Ewan McGregor and the team for the Long Way Down television series with our SoundEar motorcycle ear plugs.

We at ultimate ear protection can offer a wide range of specifically designed high quality hearing protection products at competitive prices, so if you are a motorcycle rider, a musician, gun enthusiast, working with loud machinery, appreciating your favourite music, or just want to get a good night's sleep then we have the best custom ear plugs and earphones to help you.

All of our ear defenders are manufactured to the highest standards; indeed we are the first company of our kind to guarantee our ear plugs and earphones. Custom earplugs designed to work with the shape of your own ear. For information about fittings and how our ear defenders work, please see the how it works section of our web site.

In recognition of this loyalty we are would like to offer our existing customers a discount against any future moulded ear plugs purchased, when they order using their existing ear impressions.

2nd Set Offer

We at ultimate often get asked if we offer a discount on a 'second set' of custom ear plugs because our customers require back up sets, or have different applications. In short the answer is yes; if you order 2 pairs of custom ear plugs at the same time, one of the pairs will be discounted. Call or e-mail us to find out more about our 2nd set moulded ear plugs offer.
