When it comes to the cost of custom ear plugs, there are many factors involved. Not only does the company performing the mould play a role, but the quality of materials and the sound rating they offer do as well. Below, we look at each of these factors in more detail so that you have a better understanding of why they are important and what to look for in each one. Let’s get started.


The Factors Affecting Custom-moulded Ear Plug Prices

The Company Performing the Work

The company performing the work will affect the cost of your custom ear plugs. Some companies will charge more than others because it is an irregular or additional service or because they have higher overhead costs. It’s best to work with a company that values competitive pricing if cost is an important factor to your business.

The Quality of the Materials

The quality of the materials used in custom ear plugs can vary significantly. Ideally, you should look for a high-quality, dense material that provides good hearing protection but is still soft and comfortable to wear throughout the day. Our Ear Defender moulds provide long-lasting protection, are easy to clean, made from medical-grade silicone and come with a removable cord and clip for convenient storage and use. 

The Sound Rating of the Ear Plugs

One of the most important factors involved, the sound rating of your ear plugs must be taken into consideration. The more sound the ear plugs can block, the better, as very loud spaces may require double-hearing protection otherwise. We offer several classes of attenuation to choose from so that you can get the right hearing protection for the noise level at your business.

A hearing conservation program is essential for many industries and workplaces where loud noises can impair or damage the hearing of employees. To protect their health and well-being, employers must provide them with hearing protection, either in the form of earmuffs, earplugs or custom-molded earplugs. However, there are a few things an employer must know when it comes to selecting hearing protection for their employees. 


1. It Must Follow CSA Standards 

The Canadian Standard Association (CSA) refers to Standard Z94.2-14 “Hearing Protection Devices – Performance, Selection, Care and Use” for all hearing protection when applied to a hearing conservation program. These standards breakdown the essential components of obtaining earplugs for employees, including the performance and testing requirements for the devices, the care, and the quality of the hearing protection. You cannot get earplugs for your employees if they do not follow the CSA Standards. 


2. The Quality of Product

There is a range of different custom earplugs available in the market. Unfortunately, that means there is a lot of diversity in quality. For the health and well-being of your employees, you always have to research the quality of the earplugs. Consider what they are made of, how the company makes it, and how customized they are. You have to get earplugs that will guarantee employees protection and remain effective while working. Quality is pivotal for your employees.

3. Comfortability & Fit 

Being comfortable at work is an essential factor for employees, especially in heavy-duty and loud work environments. It is, therefore, imperative that you provide your employees with custom hearing protection that fit correctly (reducing any potential slip-offs) and are comfortable (so they can work in peace). Custom earplugs are the ideal solution as they provide employees with an earplug that is specifically designed for their ears. 


4. Warranty & Product Guarantee

Guarantees and warranties are pivotal for any workplace hearing protection. Make sure as an employer, consider how many years the product can last, the length of the warranty, what coverage you get if you need repairs, and how to claim a warranty. This way, you can ensure that your money is used wisely and your employees get the best protection possible. 


By considering these four aspects when choosing earplugs, you will be making your life easier, as well as ensuring that you remove any concerns when it comes to protecting your employees’ hearing.
