What Are the Safety Specifications of the 3M Peltor X3A Over-the-Head Ear Muffs?

The 3M E-A-R FX Earplugs offer protection against extremely high levels of background noise, with an SNR of 33dB.

EN 352 - 1

The 3M Ear Muffs meet EN 352 - 1 for ear protection. This means that they are suitable as ear defenders in loud conditions.

SNR (Simplified Noise Reduction)

The Ear Defenders achieve an SNR score of 33dB.

  • High Frequency Noises: 35
  • Medium Frequency Noises: 30
  • Low Frequency Noises: 25

What Are the Uses of the 3M Peltor X3A Over-the-Head Ear Muffs?

The ear muffs are ideal for use in extremely loud environments. Following are some suitable applications:

  • Agricultural
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Utilities
  • Metal processing
  • Automotive
  • Manufacturing
  • Printing
  • Foundry
  • Heavy engineering
  • Mining
  • Engine rooms
  • Textile manufacturing

Impact and Electricity Resistant

The ABS cups of the ear muffs are rigid and resistant to impacts, to protect you from any knocks and bumps you might encounter in industrial settings. In addition, the headband is electrically insulated, reducing heat on top of the head for improved comfort.

What Is Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) and Noise Attenuation?

The SNR ratio of ear-protection indicates the amount by which background noise will be reduced, or attenuated. So if you work around machinery with a background noise of 100dB, then earplugs with an SNR of 32 will reduce the background noise to 68dB, protecting your ears. Some ear defenders will reduce the overall background noise by differing amounts depending on whether the noise is medium, low or high frequency.

Sizing of the 3M Corded 39dB Earplugs

The earplugs are available in one size that should suit most users.
