- Easy to wear with clear and simple fitting instructions
- NIOSH approved, meeting NIOSH 42 CFR 84 respirator certification requirements
Why use facemasks and N95 Respirators?
Per the FDA, facemasks and N95 masks (or respirators) are personal protective equipment (PPE) that are used to protect the wearer from liquid and airborne particles contaminating the face. They are one part of an infection-control strategy.
As defined by the FDA, an N95 mask (or respirator) is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.
The ‘N95’ designation means that during controlled testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirators exceed those of face masks. However, even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.
N95 respirators are not designed for children or people with facial hair, because a proper fit cannot be achieved on children and people with facial hair and may not provide full protection.
