We have finally got more of these back in but had to pay more than last time, although we have kept the price the same and only making a minimal margin to cover costs.
The Price is for 1 masks in one sealed plastic bag and we will send out by royal mail first class free of charge or you can pay for next working day delivery.
These hygiene face masks are valved filtering masks that are recommended when protection of the respiratory system is needed.
They are FFP3 grade and have an assigned protection factor of 20.
These filtration masks are sourced in England.
They are a half mask respirator that covers the nose and mouth when fitted properly. They have 2 elastic headbands to keep the mask in place and are white in colour.
They are masks which can filter 99% of particles that are 2.5 microns in size. They are also called “PM 2.5” masks, or in other words, “particulate matter 2.5 micron masks”. They are also called FFP3 masks, and “pollution masks”, as they are commonly worn to filter pollution from automobile exhaust, as well as sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide.
FFP3 masks filter the most particles from the air, including the small respiratory droplets where Coronavirus can be found. These droplets are released when a person coughs, sneezes or even simply breathes. This mask is well suited to filter contaminated respiration droplets from the air you breathe.
FFP3 Face Masks are easy to use and can be worn by anyone. To fit, simply hold the mask and place it over your nose and mouth. Bring both elasticated headbands over your head and adjust the position until it’s comfortable.
The bottom elasticated headband should sit at the nape of your neck and the top elasticated headband should sit just above the crest of your head (the widest part).
Once the face mask is in place, you can adjust the fitting so that it fits closely but without being too tight.
The Hygiene Face Masks are recommended for use in any situation where protection of the respiratory system is required.
The World Health Organisation advises that an EU standard FFP2 or FFP3 should be worn by healthcare workers when performing any aerosol-generating procedures.
The Hygiene Face Masks are FFP3 grade and have a higher level of protection than FFP1 or FFP2. Because FFP3 Face Masks offer superior protection through better materials.
The FFP3 masks protect against liquid and solid aerosols and can be used as an Asbestos mask. They are often used by healthcare workers when handling hazardous materials (such as pharmaceutical chemicals).
Current NHS guidelines stipulate FFP3 face masks for virus and bacterial infection control when the contagion is spread through coughing and sneezing (such as with the coronavirus).
Their filtration system is built into a valve which sits on the section that covers your nose and mouth.
FFP3 masks protect against materials in concentrations up to 50x OEL or 20x APF.
These masks are not marketed as re-usable masks because respirator dust masks are usually intended for use in a construction environment.
However, the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) directive indicates that a respirator can be reused as long as it “maintains its structural and functional integrity and the filter material is not physically damaged or soiled”.
