Smithfield, RI — The Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group will be showcasing several new hearing protection offerings at American Society of Safety Engineers Exposition
– Safety 2006 — at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center, Seattle, WA, June 11-13, 2006. The company will occupy Booth #419.

The Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group will feature their new L-Zero (L0) Series and the new Viking(tm) Series with Air Flow Control(tm).

The Hearing Safety Group has extended its popular line of Bilsom(R) Leightning(R) earmuffs with a new L-Zero (L0) Series. “The idea behind the Leightning L0 Series is to provide convenient and reliable protection for workers who are not exposed to high levels of noise and need a compact earmuff solution,” said Renee Bessette, COHC, Senior Marketing Communications Specialist for the Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group. “Lower attenuation ratings provide targeted protection, and the extremely lightweight design provides added comfort. Ultraslim earcups on the L0F Folding model fold down to less than four inches wide, allowing them to be carried conveniently in a belt pouch, while the L0N Neckband model fits comfortably around the neck and under welding helmets and other PPE.”

Bilsom has upgraded its popular Viking(tm) Series noise blocking earmuffs to incorporate its patented Air Flow Control(tm) technology (AFC), which delivers optimal attenuation across all frequencies without increasing earcup size or weight. Viking Series multi-position headbands give workers the flexibility to wear their earmuffs over-the-head, behind-the-head, or under-the-chin, allowing them to be worn with hard hats, face shields, respirators, and other PPE.

Designed to provide all-day comfort, Viking Series V2 and V3 earmuffs feature a dual-headband design with an inner ventilated band for better positioning and breathability, and a non-deforming outer headband that minimizes pressure on the head. An improved attached elastic headband strap provides additional comfort and helps to ensure attenuation when earmuffs are worn in other than over-the-head positions.
