Needlers Ltd, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of janitorial and personal protection (PPE) equipment to the food manufacturing industry, has developed a cost-effective, reusable ear plug for its Reldeen range of PPE equipment.

Developed to complement Needlers’ existing range of disposable ear plugs, the company’s new Reldeen reusable ear plugs are around 20% cheaper than branded alternatives and, as they can be reused for at least a week, compared to just one day for disposable ones, will save businesses approximately 40%. They will also reduce the number of used ear plugs going to landfill, saving money and helping to improve the environment.

Supplied in boxes of 50, the new ear plugs are available in a single size to suit all wearers, and in blue for good visual detection.

Alistair Needler, Managing Director of Needlers, said:

“In recent years, providing adequate hearing protection for employees has become an increasingly important consideration for organisations, especially for those in the food processing sector. The risk of not taking these measures can potentially include financial penalties, improvement notices from the Health and Safety Executive and compensation claims from employees.

He continued…

“Our new reusable ear plugs will help businesses to eliminate these risks, and save customers a significant amount of money on their ear plug spend. As such, they meet our objective of expanding our product range and offering our customers added choice coupled with genuine savings.”

Having undergone extensive testing, Needlers’ new Reldeen reusable ear plugs offer a high level of protection and comfort, and are metal detectable should they fall into food products. The new reusable ear plugs are also corded to prevent loss and, after each use, can be easily cleaned and stored in a metal detectable container.

Needlers Ltd is one of the largest suppliers of janitorial and PPE equipment to the food manufacturing sector, with 2 Sisters, Greencore, Samworths, Cranswick and ABP amongst the company’s high-profile national accounts. Needlers prides itself on offering outstanding customer service, and makes daily deliveries across the UK using its own fleet of distribution vehicles.
