Moldex-Metric, Inc., makers of products such as moldex earplugs, is a California based company rooted in continuous innovation. They focus on protective products that provide comfort and ease of use to the wearer, while protecting them from the dangers of many workplace environments. Moldex has two main product lines: high quality hearing protection and NIOSH-approved respirators.

Hearing protection devices available from moldex are broken up into three main categories. Much of the hearing protection line is devoted to the popular moldex earplugs, which come in many shapes, sizes, and even colors. They offer both reusable and disposable earplugs, including the very protective Camo Plugs and the colorful Softies, both of which have NNR 32 ratings.

Moldex also produces earmuffs and hearing protection bands. Their earmuffs are built around a comfortable cups and adjustable sizes, and offer protection in the range of 25 to 30 dB. Moldex bands, an alternative to earmuffs, are designed for applications involving less noise, or for use with eyewear. Bands are great for lab use, where safety glasses may not be compatible with earmuffs. However, neither bands nor ear muffs carry NNR ratings as high as moldex earplugs.

Moldex Earplugs, Respirators, and Accessories

Moldex also makes accessories to go along with main product lines. Alcohol wipe pads can be used to cleaning PPE such as reusable earplugs, earmuffs, and respirators, and their Respiratory Protection Program Manual can aid you in developing an OSHA-approved safety program. Moldex products are available from many safety suppliers, and a full list of distributors is even available on their corporate website.

You know we have struggled with sleep isseus with L. for YEARS and it just doesn't seem to change. We used melatonin for about a year and then this summer it stopped working. Not only that, but it was giving him such vivid dreams that we think he began having real deep-set anxieties that were REALLY interfering with his sleep and well-being. It also didn't stop him from waking up, which he still did and does.Rest assured though that as they grow older they will (hopefully) develop the skills to stay in their rooms. For the most part L. stays in his room and reads for hours; when he is anxious or has a bad dream he brings his sleeping bag into our room and sleeps on the floor.Good luck--sending sleep vibes your way!
