Default Full face respirator with hearing protection integrated?.

Hi there.

After losing my battle with proper dust collection, I decided to invest some money
into a good respirator, since I'm going to deal with toxic stuff (MDF) I want to get something of a decent quality.

I've read good things about 3M, however I didn't find a full face respirator (clean air + eyes protection) that also has hearing protection integrated.

Do you know of anything like that?.

IIRC I've read somewhere in these forums that there is a thing called Triton, or something like that, but google didn't help me with it .

Thanks.

hearing protection... your choice...
eye protection... simple eye wear..
positive air hood/respirator or a better filtered face mask......

stop using MDF...
seriously ramp up your dust collection...

what you are asking for is dog snot expensive....
like several thousand dollars...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

I'm wearing a mask rated for h2s gas and a hard hat with those high quality Scott ear muffs attached and a full flip down shield which is also integrated into the hard hat . The masks cartridges do Unfortunatly hit the sheild on occasion and inadvertently open it . I do have a fat head however , so this may just be a problem for me .
When I say high quality ear muffs , there's differant versions , and I like the ones that really keep the noise down .

I also have a regular dust mask with those replaceable paper elements ,and seems as though every time I use it cutting MDF that I cough for days later , but using the h2s mask works incredibly well . The mask also has paper pre filters before the charcoal cartridge , so I think it takes out anything from a wood particle to things as small as a bizzilimeter.

I'm liking your respirator idea the best though, and it has been discussed before . Hopefully the member that uses one sees this thread

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Hey I took my first selfie
Please disregard my swollen eyes and red face from high blood pressure , as I got into the whiskey during the holidays and it takes me 8 days to recover

that's what I suggested to Pablo to do sans the hardhat...
that respirator looks to be a better variety...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Try Googling Trend Airshield. Rockler.com carries them but you may find them elsewhere. I use the disposable foam ear plugs.
