User Guide for AIRPLUGS:
full shell and CIC earplugs
Definition of Terms
An earplug may be defined as a standalone item which plugs the ear canal to block out noise or water. Our AIRplugs are re-usable.
Your new AIRplug has been professionally crafted from your ear impression, assuring you of an effective and comfortable fit.
Every human ear is unique. Just as with eyeglasses, you may have to allow a little time to adjust to your new AIRplugs. Should circumstances require, our policy is that ear mold modifications will be made during your adjustment period (30 days) without charge.
f you are using your protections for the 1st time, wear your protections gradually
Start with 2 hours at the end of a shift for the 1st day,
Increase wearing time little by little.
* your usual protections should be worn for the remainder of your working hours. A protector must be inserted in a quiet place. You need to protect yourself 100% of the time from exposure to noise.
Insertion of the AIRplugs
Each ear plug is custom-crafted to fit the contours of a particular ear. This results in a secure, inconspicuous fit. Be sure to insert the ear plug into the ear for which it was made. They are usually marked with a dot or letter: Red (R) is right and blue (L) is left.
Insert the mold or plug by placing its canal portion into your ear canal. Gently twist it between your fingers to insert it in your ear. To assure a snug fit, pull the earlobe outward with your thumb and forefinger while pressing the ear plug inward with the forefinger of the other hand. Seat the top of the protector under the fold of the ear.
It is necessary to have a tight and comfortable fit to assure the best protection
Removal of the ear mold or earplug
To remove, gently pull the ear until the seal is broken. Hold the ear plug between the thumb and forefinger. Rotate the ear plug slightly towards the front of the head while slowly pulling it out of the ear.
Use of the “WAX LOOP“
This device is designed for trouble-free removal of wax from the ear canal portion of your ear mold and vent. You should insert the loop, at a slight angle, just into the opening of the canal to gently lift wax out. Should your ear mold have a vent hole located along the sound channel, this opening should also be cleaned with the Wax Loop. The loop is only used if the plug has a vent hole. Use the brush only on solid molds.
Care and Maintenance of your earplug
Following these suggestions, you should realize optimal performance from your ear plug.
Inspect the earplug or noise blocker daily for earwax, which may be obstructing the sound, bore or vent. (See instructions, for using your Wax Loop.)You can even wash your ear molds (without electronic parts) with warm water and mild hand soap. Do not use harsh detergents or cleaning compounds.
Wipe the entire ear mold or ear plug clean each day with a soft tissue to eliminate any buildup of residue or wax.
Periodically, a small amount of moisture may accumulate in the ear mold or clear plastic tubing.
Store in your carrying case to prevent loss, keep them clean and ready for use
Replacement of your earplug
For the following reasons, return to your provider for a new ear plug or a replacement:
If you have a marked change in body weight, your ear plug may need to be replaced to accommodate this physical change.
Many times, children’s molds and plugs may need recoating or replacing to allow for rapid growth rate.
Physical adaptation of the ear tissue to the ear plug may occur over time, requiring a new fitting to secure an inadequate seal.
Replacement may be necessary due to damage or discoloration over time.
After the ear plugs lifecycle (4 years) we recommend that you replace your hearing protection.
These AIRplugs should not be used if there is the risk that the connecting cord could be caught up during use.
AIRPLUGS are not recommended for use in deep water diving.
Introduce, insert and maintain the protections according to the instructions contained in this guide.
Constantly wear protections in noisy surroundings.
If the recommendations given above are not followed, the protection provided by the molded ear plug will be substantially impaired. This product may be adversely affected by certain chemical substances. Further information should be sought from the manufacturer.
