Why is it important to wear hearing protection when doing DIY?
Do you want to renovate your home? Or are you in the middle of a renovation? Whether at home or in the garden, there is always something to do for hobby and DIY enthusiasts. However, while in industry noise protection is usually a priority in the workplace, hearing protection is often neglected when doing DIY at home. This can quickly become dangerous. This is because optimum hearing protection is extremely important, especially when doing DIY. Whether it is when drilling a hole or due to loud engine noises during gardening, in the long term the loud noise pollution during DIY can damage our ears and even lead to permanent hearing damage.
What kind of hearing damage can be caused by noise when doing DIY?
Noise from a circular saw or drill can already severely reduce hearing. In addition to short-term hearing loss, it can even lead to permanent hearing damage. The noise can also have an impact on the psyche. The higher the noise exposure, the more severe the health complaints. These can manifest themselves as hearing damage or nerve damage. Long-term exposure to loud noise when doing DIY can also cause sudden deafness or bangs.
Welcher Gehörschutz eignet sich für Heimwerker?
We have the ideal hearing protection for every area. For do-it-yourselfers the classic capsule ear protection is usually the ideal choice. In this case the ears are completely enclosed. The noise insulation is therefore particularly effective. But earplugs are also suitable for do-it-yourselfers for smaller jobs at home. They are also somewhat more comfortable than ear muffs. There are also special hearing protection solutions that are equipped with loudspeakers. This means that you can easily protect your ears while you're working at home and listen to music or the radio at the same time.
How does hearing protection work for DIYers?
Capsule ear protection usually has a very high level of attenuation and can therefore also provide optimum protection against loud drilling noises. In addition, capsule ear protection completely encloses the ears. The flexible adjustment options also ensure a high level of wearing comfort in the do-it-yourself workshop or when gardening. Earplugs can also be used for do-it-yourself work. These are available in foam, wax or silicone, for example. In some versions, the earplugs are connected to each other with a thin band for do-it-yourselfers. This allows you to remove your earplugs from time to time without losing them. For optimum wearing comfort you can of course have your ear protection made to measure by us.
