Our mask is not intended to replace surgical face masks and it is not PPE certified. The wool filter inserts are tested in house by our supplier but as a whole it has not been tested. Inserts do not meet N95 standards but are designed to give 80% filtration of 0.3micron size at normal breathing rates. Please see lanco.co.nz for more details.
Wearing a face mask certainly does not guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols and aerosols can penetrate masks in a variety of ways.
Basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of infections. Basic hygiene measures include:
hand hygiene – that is, washing hands regularly with soap and water, or cleansing with hand sanitiser
staying at home if you are sick
coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow and then performing hand hygiene
cleaning surfaces regularly.
Sized approx. 11cm x 18cm
Please note, for hygiene reason these filters will need to come in their original plastic packaging as this is how we get them from our supplier.
