Health & Safety

Smithfield, RI — When jobsites are outdoors, at night or in inclement weather, or anywhere in low light conditions, workers are exposed to increased safety hazards in addition to noise. Incorporating high-visibility earcups and reflective headbands to provide visual protection, along with a completely dielectric construction, Howard Leight Thunder T2HV Hi-Visibility earmuffs provide workers with a total solution for hearing protection and visibility in electrical environments.

Eye-catching bright green earcups on Howard Leight Thunder T2HV earmuffs provide a highly noticeable contrast against dark settings, especially in low lighting situations and inclement weather. Plus, only Thunder T2HV earmuffs incorporate an exclusive reflective headband that illuminates when exposed to light, providing increased visibility and safety on the job.

Dielectric construction in Thunder T2HV earmuffs will not conduct electricity, making them ideal for virtually all noise environments, and especially for utility, airport ground workers and road construction crews, as well as the petrochemical and mineral extraction industries. And overall robust construction provides high performance and long-term durability, allowing Howard Leight Thunder T2HV Hi-Visibility earmuffs to stand up to daily use and abuse without compromising comfort.

Rated at NRR 28 (Canada Class A (L)), and designed to provide maximum protection and comfort, Thunder T2HV earmuffs utilize Bilsom Technology’s patented Air Flow Control technology to provide optimal attenuation across all frequencies, and better, more consistent attenuation at low frequencies. Snap-in ear cushions make replacement quick and easy, facilitating hygiene. Inner-ventilated headbands minimize pressure on the head, and Quick-Click height adjustment allows individual comfort settings which remain fixed while in use.

From its beginnings as a one-man operation more than 30 years ago, Howard Leight has grown into one of the largest global manufacturers of hearing protectors in the industrial market and the recognized innovator in protection and people-oriented fit. Howard Leight offers the widest variety of earplugs and bands, ranging from the highest attenuating Max single-use earplug, to SmartFit’s Conforming Material Technology–which delivers a more personalized fit–to our convenient Leight Source dispensers. Utilizing Bilsom Technology, Howard Leight earmuffs raise the bar on innovative design, performance and comfort, with features like padded wire headbands, high-visibility designs, unique sound management technologies and multi-level attenuation options.
