Easy solutions for complex hearing protection challenges.
3M™ Hearing Protection products can form part of an integrated solution with other PPE, providing protection for not just your hearing but your whole head and face. Designed to offer protection and comfort for both workers and managers, 3M Hearing Protection products can be relied upon in demanding and hostile environments.
Hearing protection is an exact science. Noise levels need to be altered by precise amounts. Not too much, nor too little. Combining the right level of noise protection with simple easy to use functionality is what defines 3M Hearing Protection products.
Our hearing protection products cater for unique scenarios, and range from conventional foam ear plugs, to the very latest high-tech electronic ear muffs. We know that every job is different, and that some tasks can require either hearing, head or face protection, or even all three. That’s why 3M Safety Helmets and Face Shields are designed to be worn comfortably along with 3M Ear Muffs and other protection products.
When hearing protection solutions are comfortable, practical and easy to use, workers are happier to use them, helping you to ensure compliance with professional health and safety standards. Choosing and using professional hearing protection can require both reliable support and guidance. Contact 3M for training, technical support and educational materials, and choose the right hearing protection solutions for you.
The 3M PELTOR Optime Ear Muffs offer versatile protection for use in moderate to more demanding noisy environments. Their lightweight design makes them an excellent choice for workers looking for long-term comfort. The products feature a low profile design which minimises obtrusiveness, thus making it more compatible when used with other forms of PPE. The sealing rings are filled with a unique combination of liquid and foam. The result is an optimum seal with low contact pressure, another comfort feature that makes 3M PELTOR Optime Ear Muffs a popular worker’s choice.
The 3M PELTOR X Series ear muffs combine excellent comfort with high durability, a broad range of protection, and modern styling, making them the best ear muff from 3M PELTOR.

Protection, comfort and style.
We believe that health and safety is the number one priority in any working environment. But workers also need to feel comfortable, as well as safe, while working.
However, in today’s highly diverse workforce, providing individual workers and managers with secure and comfortable eye protection can be challenging.
That’s why we created the 3M™ SecureFit™ Series, featuring self-adjusting 3M™ Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology, which helps to enhance frame comfort without compromising the security of fit across an entire workforce.
If workers feel that their eyewear protection is both comfortable and practical, they are much more likely to use it, ensuring compliance with health and safety law and avoiding accidents and injuries.
Our eyewear protection range features comfort where it’s most needed. The materials used are designed to be strong and durable, but also soft to the touch and gentle on heavy contact areas including nose bridges and temple tips. Our range of protective eyewear features coatings, materials and designs that utilise the very latest in technology, innovation and fashion, helping each and every worker to stay safe in comfort.
With 3M Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology no adjustment is necessary. Simply put on 3M SecureFit Protective Eyewear and feel the difference as it self-adjusts to provide a comfortable and secure fit each time it is worn.
But the innovation doesn't stop with the 3M Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology. Introducing the new 3M SecureFit 400 Series Eye Protection with additional features for added comfort, style and wearability.
The brand new 3M™ SecureFit™ 600 Series incorporates a variety of special features to ensure premium comfort and reliable protection. The new 3M™ SecureFit™ 600 Series has combined premium product features to improve comfort and offer a wide range of lens options.
