What do the FFP3 Masks look like?
The protective face mask is single use and unvalved. It consists of mask body, nose bar and mask belt. The mask body is a multi-layer design including a surface layer and a base layer both made out of spun-bonded non-woven fabric; and middle layers made up of static cotten and polypropylene melt blown non woven fabric. The mask bands are made up of nylon and spandex, the bands are designed to loop round the ears to ensure comfort and a tight fit.
What are FFP3/N99 masks?
FFP3 masks filter 99% of particles from the air, including the small respiratory droplets where Coronavirus can be found. These droplets are released when a person coughs, sneezes or even simply breathes. This mask is well suited to filter contaminated respiration droplets from the air you breathe.
What are the face masks used for?
The Hygiene Face Masks are recommended for use in any situation where protection of the respiratory system is required. The World Health Organisation advises that an EU standard FFP2 or FFP3 should be worn by healthcare workers when performing any aerosol-generating procedures.
How do FFP3 Face Masks work?
The Hygiene Face Masks are FFP3 grade and have a higher level of protection than FFP1 or FFP2. Because FFP3 Face Masks offer a higher amount of protection, they are more expensive than FFP2.
Which mask should I get?
With the many types of masks available, it can be confusing which type you should get. Here at UK Meds we have many types, including FFP3. Is the FFP3 the best mask? It depends on your intended use. The WHO isn’t recommending any particular mask, they would even consider cloth masks acceptable. However, in situations where you need the best filtration, FFP3 is an excellent choice. It is all dependent on your coverage needs. If you are usually at home and only outside for occasional shopping, an FFP1 or FFP2 is perfectly fine. But if you are around the public often, such as a healthcare worker or in retail, an FFP3 would be much more suitable.
