Our reusable 5 layer mask exceeds the protection level of commonly used “3 layer” fabric masks and far exceeds the protection offered by scarves, bandanas and handkerchiefs.
This mask is not to the standard N95 or FFP2 and should NOT be used as a replacement for conventional and approved Personal Protective Equipment.
Unlike most homemade masks the 295FM has been tested to SANS 50149:2003
The mask provides 40% filtration and allows for proper breathing.
WASHCARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR REUSABLE MASKS
Soak the mask for 15 to 20 minutes, at minimum daily:
- In a solution of water and bleach (1.5:100 concentration*) or
- Surgical spirits or
- Liquid hand sanitiser with a minimum alcohol content of 70%.
Wash with soap and rinse thoroughly after soaking, and dry.
The mask must be completely dry before using.
There must be minimal odour from the soaking solution before re-use.
