FAQ’s

What is the difference between a respirator and a standard face mask?

Respirators allows for a higher filtration efficiency and better fit than standard face masks. All respirators must be approved by NIOSH with an assigned approval code on each respirator if you’re unsure about a respirator or a standard face mask.

What is a NIOSH Approved Respirator?

The NIOSH regulates the manufacture and testing of respirators, along with cartridges, filters and supplied air systems.

How long do particle filters last?

As particle filters load up with the contaminant they actually become a better filter. However, they become a harder filter to breathe through. The user will notice breathing becoming too hard and will then need to change the filter.

Half-mask or full-mask respirators?



Depending on the health and safety requirements of your workplace or the demands of your application, you may need to choose between a half mask or full mask respiratory. Half mask respirators cover only the nose and mouth, while full masks cover the entire face. While both masks may have the same grade of filter, a full face mask has the benefit of sealing around the whole face, creating a more secure seal. Full face masks also have the advantage of protecting the eyes from vapours or splashing. As such, the full face mask option is often a better choice for potentially more hazardous conditions.

However, a half-mask might be a more cost-effective option if extra protection isn't needed, or might be more suitable for use in combination with specialized headgear.

Correct use of respirators



When it comes to respiratory protection, the correct fitting and testing of your respirator is just as important as selecting the correct respiratory protective equipment for your working conditions. Be sure to follow all pertinent instructions and that health and safety best practice is adhered to at all times. Always be sure to use the correct filters for your environment, and make sure the replacement filters are changed as regularly as is recommended.
