If you are looking for dust masks FFP2 then PPE Industrial Supplies can help. Our wide range of dust masks are suitable for a range of people working in many industries.
Dust masks are used to stop people from inhaling small particles, which can cause damage to the lungs and other organs. They do this by filtering out dust before it is inhaled. It’s important to look at dust mask specification before buying, as you want to be sure it will meet your needs. For example, FFP2 dust masks remove at least 94% of of all particles that are 0.3 microns in diameter or larger. This is why you should know what type of dust - and so what size of particle - you are working with to get the right mask.
Buying FFP2 dust mask protection online is easy. Simply select the type of mask you are looking for and order online. But make sure that the mask you choose is also comfortable to wear. Depending on whether you are wearing a mask for a short period of time or all day can have a major impact in the type of mask you buy.
Some FFP2 masks are disposable, and so suitable for use for a short period of time. This also ensures that there is no spreading of germs as they won’t be shared by two or more people. They are also lightweight dust masks, meaning they can be carried around easily before use, and are comfortable to wear too.
Scotland has lower temperatures than the rest of the UK. Thermal insulation needs for dust masks ffp2 vary between the North Sea and the Atlantic coasts, given western Scotland’s milder climate. The Highlands have heavier rainfalls and snowfalls, which call for higher levels of weather resistance in dust masks ffp2 . Each Scottish economic sector also has specific requirements; technology firms in Edinburgh or Glasgow, the oil and gas industries of Aberdeen or agriculture and brewing across Scotland demand different dust masks ffp2 . At PPE, we provide a wide range of dust masks ffp2 to accommodate the needs of different activities and weather conditions.
Do you need an FFP2 dust mask that is valved? You may be wondering what is the difference between a valved and an unvalved dust mask. The answer comes down to one thing - comfort.
A valved comfort simply makes breathing easier to the wearer. An unvalved dust mask covers the nose and mouth, so as you can imagine this very quickly becomes stuffy and moist for whoever has it on. It can get hot inside the mask, and is not pleasant after a short period of time. Not only that, but condensation can start to form - this is highly annoying for those who wear glasses as they can quickly steam up.
So a valved dust mask lets the air out of the mask when the wearer breathes out. This means it is far more comfortable to wear over longer periods of time, and avoids any problems with steaming up glasses. Valved FFP2 dust masks are a great investment if you or your team in Scotland will be wearing masks regularly, or for long periods of time to do their work. When you breath in, the valve closes so as not to take in any dust. It opens again when you breath out, releasing the air back out. They keep your face protected at all times.
Dust masks with a FFP2 rating provide protection against moderate levels of dust. They can also protect against solid and liquid aerosols. As such, these masks are ideal for plastering and sanding where such particulates will quickly fill the air.
Some people may choose to buy a dust mask to protect themselves against catching viruses. This includes Coronavirus. FFP2 masks do offer protection from the wearer, and if they are valved, they could be more comfortable to wear over long periods of time.
