Smithfield, RI — The Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group will feature several innovative earplugs and earmuffs at AIHce 2007, June 2-7, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. The company will occupy booth Booth #1011.

Featured products include: new Bilsom Radio Hi-Visibility and Leightning L-Zero ultraslim earmuffs, as well Howard Leight Multiple-Use Earplugs, including the improved AirSoft style.

Bilsom has extended its award winning hi-visibility capabilities to its AM/FM Radio earmuff with the new Radio Hi-Visibility earmuff. Eye-catching bright green earcups and a reflective headband on the new Radio Hi-Visibility earmuffs provide clear visibility, day or night. At the same time, workers can enhance job satisfaction by listening to their favorite radio station or other portable audio device. It features a 3.5mm AUX input jack, allowing the earmuff to connect to MP3 players and other portable audio devices. Radio Hi-Visibility also features the patented Air Flow Control technology, delivering an NRR 25 when in the “off” position.

Leightning L-Zero (L0) ultraslim earmuffs, also new from Bilsom, are designed to provide reliable protection from intermittent or marginal noise hazards. The L-Zero features an ultraslim earcup design with less weight and bulk than standard earmuffs, and is available in Folding (L0F) and Neckband (L0N) models.

Updated for exceptional in-ear comfort, Howard Leight’s flagship AirSoft multiple-use earplug’s new four flange design creates a better seal in the ear canal, delivering optimal protection and increased comfort for long-term wear. Internal fins create an interlocking, noise-blocking barrier within the air pocket, providing dependable attenuation for all wearers upon proper insertion. At the same time, AirSoft’s firm stem and tapered shape facilitate easy insertion and removal, and allow the earplug to sit comfortably in the ear canal, continuing to deliver a 27 NRR.

Since its beginnings as a one-man operation more than 30 years ago, Howard Leight Industries has grown into one of the largest manufacturers of in-ear hearing protection in the industrial market and is widely recognized as an innovator in protection and fit.
