Cap Mount Ear Muffs

QuickSnap™ Ear Muffs for Attachment to Safety Helmets

Hearing Protection and other Safety Equipment are many times incompatible. Product designers simply did not plan for the real world. Head, Face and Hearing protection products can in fact be worn simultaneously with Elvex Quick Snap System! Cap Mount Ear Muffs and Face Shields are functionally integrated.

Components for an integrated protective system:

Pictures below show:

  1. Visor Bracket, VB-10, carrier of a variety of face shields for use with safety helmets with a standard brim.
  2. Visor Bracket, VB-20, carrier for face shields for use with short brim safety helmets (such as MSA) or to provide extra space between the face shield and the face, in order to accommodate cartridge respirators.
  3. Visor Bracket, VB-30, looks similar to VB-20, but is designed to accommodate newer helmet designs with raised accessory slots or sloping brims. Elvex safety helmet models SC-30 works best with VB-30.
  4. Arm Bracket for cap mount muffs, BR-29/30/93. On BR-93 a removable slot filler makes if possible to fit one blade to most safety caps equipped with and accessory slot. BR-30, shown to the right fits many wider slots, such as Bullard, Willson, Jackson and North. Caution: some manufacturers have several different accessory slots. BR-29 fits MSA safety caps and other narrow slots, as well as Elvex Quick Slot, QS-29.
  5. Slot adapters are used when you want to mount face shields to a safety helmet w/o the use of ear muffs.
  6. Quick Slot, QS-29, creates and accessory slot on most safety caps and bump caps, that lack accessory slots.
