Honeywell Announces Howard Leight TrustFit Pod Push-In Foam Earplug
Workers Can Now ‘Wear Confidence’ and Trust in the Fit of Their Hearing Protection
SMTIHFIELD, RI — April 6, 2016 — Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the Howard Leight TrustFit™ Pod push-in foam earplugthat provides workers with properly fitting ear plugs to protect against noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).
Research shows that half of all industrial workers experience progressive, long-term hearing loss — in part because many struggle to fit their earplugs for proper hearing protection. The new Honeywell Howard Leight TrustFit Pod earplug is designed with an ergonomic stem and dimpled foam tip so they are easy to fully insert and remove without picking up dirt from a worker’s fingers. They are comfortable to wear throughout the work day.
- Ease: The Howard Leight signature soft foam with dimpled tip collapses to be easily and gently pushed into the ear without the need to rolldown, helping to reduce hygiene concerns and time-consuming insertion.
- Comfort: The ergonomically contoured paddle fits naturally between the finger and thumb, even when wearing lightweight work gloves. Its flexible stem material gently pushes the dimpled foam into the narrowing ear canal to rest comfortably throughout the work day.
- Trustworthy: The patent-pending TrustFit Pod earplug design was developed using the Howard Leight VeriPRO® earplug fit-test system to reliably measure fit consistency.
