There are many masks on the market that do not conform and are not even made to any regulatory standards.
Our Barrier masks are all made to conform to AFNOR S76-001 level of filtering to complement protective measures and social distancing rules. The barrier in no way exonerates the user from the routine application of protective measures, which are essential, or from the distancing rules.
We can supply two types of mask either a complete mask with integral barrier filter that is reusable being washable without taking apart, or a mask “body” that contains a reusable, washable and replaceable barrier filter.
The Barrier filters and the complete Barrier masks are recommended for four hours of use before washing. This is in accordance with current regulatory advice AFNOR S76 -001. After four hours it is advised that the filter or mask should be changed and the used one washed.
Masks bodies that hold barrier filters should be disinfected with an antimicrobial spray (i.e. Dettol) inside and out before loading with a clean laundered barrier filter. Cautions should be exercised when handling used masks and always wash hands thoroughly after handling. Avoid touching the mask in the same way one should avoid touching one’s face, eyes, mouth and nose. See our guide to wearing & caring for your mask.
