KN95/ N95 Respirator Face Mask 5 Pack

25.00

An N95/ KN95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.

Face masks known as N95 and/or KN95 respirators are the common names for regulatory standards in different jurisdictions used to test their efficacy at filtering out at least 95% of very small particles.
N95 is the standard name used in the U.S., while KN95 refers to a standard name used in China.

On paper, they achieve the same efficacy and filter 95+% of most small particles and are similarly breathable.

Our KN95 respirators are CE marked, imported by an Irish company that has dealt in textiles out of China for over 30 years. Our supplier also distributes to the HSE and the UK’s NHS.

Description

Personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer from airborne particles and from liquid contaminating the face.

An N95/ KN95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.

The ‘N95’/ KN95 designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95/ KN95 respirators exceed those of face masks.

However, even a properly fitted N95/ KN95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.

N95/ KN95 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, the N95/ KN95 respirator may not provide full protection.
