Focusing on comfort and low breathing resistance, the Force™8 half-mask is available now from PPE Industrial Supplies. Its durable thermoplastic rubber mask offers a superior fit for most face shapes, and is a great mask for those working in construction, welding or other industries with air particulates.
The award winning Force™8 twin cartridge half-mask with Typhoon™ valve is on of the most superior masks we’ve seen on the market. This isn’t surprising, as it comes from one of the world’s leading suppliers of “above the neck” personal protective equipment, JSP. This company, which has been producing excellent equipment since 1964, agrees with us that PPE should be comfortable to wear and compatible with other PPE. A lot of time and care has been put into this product to ensure that this is the case with a Force™8.
We like when these ideas are backed up with evidence and industry confirmation that they work. To show how well designed and built they are, the Force™8 is a winner of the BSIF Product Innovation Award. These awards from the British Safety Industry Federation are well known for recognising excellence within the safety industry, and is a trusted mark that the product is of high quality. This particular award goes to products that are “…new and innovative and will contribute to improvements in occupational safety & health within the UK”.
To further add to its safety credentials, the mask Conforms to EN140 (Face piece), EN14387: 2004 (Filter performance) and EN143:200 (Filter performance). This is a mask you can trust.
The Force™ 8 twin cartridge half mask Typhoon™ comes with a low resistance exhalation valve for easy breathing, with stable mask configuration. A fully adjustable 4-point cradle suspension harness ensures an effective facial fit with quick release buckles. CR2™ reflective strips create increased visibility in low-light environments for added safety at work.
The cost effective Force™ 8 filters provide low profile angle for minimum visual impairment. We love that the the mask accepts the full range of low profile Force™ 8 filters. This means that the mask has the flexibility to be used for many applications, providing filtering protection against particulates, many gases and vapours.
This is an excellent multi-use mask in our opinion, and one we would happily recommend. If you are looking to buy a half mask, do consider the Force™ 8 twin cartridge half mask.
