Item Details

  • 3M™ Peltor™ Optime™ 98 Yellow Over-The-Head Earmuffs with 25 dB have stainless steel headband for consistent force and effective hearing protection. ABS earmuffs resist wrapping and bending while the pivot points tilt for optimum comfort and efficiency. Earmuffs with liquid/foam filled cushions can take the noise levels up to 98 dBA and are developed to provide ultimate protection in the most demanding noise environments. They are color-coded to compliance sighting. Application areas include assembly, cleaning, demolition, electrical, grinding, machine operations, painting, sanding and welding. Earmuffs are suitable for industries like automotive, construction, food and beverage manufacturing, manufacturing, metal production and fabrication, military maintenance, repair and operation, mining, oil and gas, pharmaceutical and transportation.
