Each year several hunters, conscripts and sport shooters suffer from tinnitus and other problems with their hearing. A great part of these problems are resulting from the exposure to noise from small arms fire without adequate hearing protection. Many of these hearing problems could have been avoided with the proper use of firearm suppressors.
As the muzzle report of a rifle caliber weapon may exceed sound pressure level of over 160 dB in the vicinity of the weapon, it poses a clear health hazard to the hearing of the shooter and everyone else in the proximity. With rifle caliber weapons a suppressor can be used to decrease the peak sound levels to 140 dB* and below, which is considered as a limit when an impulsive sound produces hearing damage.

Silent Steel solutions and innovations
Silent Steel has done a lot of research and development in area of gas operated self loading guns and suppressors.
New innovative structure allows gases and pressure to stream through the suppressor and lets the gas vent out and away from the muzzle.
The structure of the Silent Steel Streamer family is something new on the market. There are no baffles which will stop the gases inside the suppressor and cause higher backpressures and other problems. The gases are forced to rotate inside the suppressor to maximize the distance that gasses are travelling inside the suppressor. The centrifuge effect will keep that gases rotating inside the tube and cooling down as much as possible before exiting the suppressor from the ventilation holes at the front of the suppressor. Gases are also forced to collide inside the suppresssor to prevent hot gases behind the bullet to exit from the bullet channel.
The patent of the new technology in Silent Steel suppressors is pending.
Advantages of Silent Steel Streamer suppressors:
