A common criticism of a full-face respirator is the stifling and isolating effect it has on people. Full-face respirators also have a price tag many struggle to invest in. This simple but effective mask overcomes both criticisms while still performing well.
The 4x AA battery pack clips on to the belt and then plugs into the standard-shape half-face respirator where it can run the cooling fan for up 6 – 10 hours. It has the two-speed setting built into the battery pack to provide adjustment to maximize comfort on days of differing humidity/temperature.
The mask itself is made from a soft and comfortable silicone compound that fits comfortably around the face reducing the likelihood of fogging up prescription or safety glasses.
Combining the included P1 main and pre-filters means that filtration is rated down to 0.4microns – removing all hazardous wood dust from the air you’re breathing.
It comes in a kit with 3 P1 main filters and 10 pre-filters as a well as a handy, durable storage case. The standard P1 and pre-filters are available to be purchased separately as required.
Also available separately is an optional carbon-loaded P2 filter that can filter nuisance organic vapours such as the fumes from most spray painting and other fume-generating applications.
