Smithfield, RI — The Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group will showcase its wide range of Howard Leight and Bilsom hearing protection products at the 2006 World of Concrete Exhibit, on January 17-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV. The company will occupy booth #N1410. The World of Concrete is one of the commercial construction industry’s largest trade shows, with over 1,600 exhibitors and more than 1.3 million square feet of exhibition space.

“The construction industry has one of the highest rates of noise-induced hearing loss in the country,” said Renee Bessette, COHC, Senior Marketing/Communications Specialist for the Hearing Safety Group. “But recent improvements in noise measurement technology, along with innovations in hearing protection devices (HPDs), and a greater awareness of the dangers of hazardous noise are helping to protect workers.”

Central to the Hearing Safety Group exhibit will be two recently introduced products: new Bilsom(R) Leightning(R) Hi-Visibility Earmuffs which incorporate both noise blocking protection and total visibility, night and day; and the new Howard Leight(R) LS-400 Leight(R) Source earplug dispenser.

Bilsom Leightning Hi-Visibility Earmuffs offer both maximum attenuation and total visibility, especially in outdoors or in low-lighting situations. Eye-catching fluorescent green earcups on Leightning Hi-Visibility Earmuffs contrast noticeably against dark backgrounds, in low lighting or in inclement weather. Plus, Leightning Hi-Visibility is the only earmuff on the market that incorporates a reflective headband that illuminates when exposed to light, providing additional safety, day or night. Leightning Hi-Visibility is available in the standard L3HV headband style [NRR 30], as well as a convenient folding design with optional belt storage case, providing protection up to NRR 27.

New from Howard Leight is the LS-400 Leight Source earplug dispenser. Built of durable plastic and designed for wall mounting or tabletop use, the LS-400 provides an easy and convenient way for workers to access hearing protectors. In addition, purchasing bulk dispenser refills eliminates packaging waste and can save companies up to 10% of their annual earplug cost. The LS-400 Leight Source dispenser is compatible with a range of Howard Leight earplug designs, including Matrix(tm), Max(R), Max Lite(R), Laser Lite(R) and MultiMax(R). The sturdy plastic base-stand of the LS-400 also includes snap-in rubber feet for added stability in tabletop applications.

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. Since 2001 Howard Leight has been a part of the Bacou-Dalloz(tm) Hearing Safety Group.
