N95 Face Masks - (Box of 10) KN95 PPE Protection vs. airborne particles, droplets, pollution, pollen
Box of 10 disposable N95 (KN95) PPE Face Masks
If you are a frontline worker or work in an area that requires PPE assistance with hygiene, or you intend to send our masks to someone who is one, please let us know. We are happy to discount these masks for you.
These sealed 10x KN95 Face masks have been shown to be valuable protection in all circumstances, are used regularly for obvious benefits for health and pollution, and have been worn even more often recently as an additional barrier against the virus. These are generally intended to be worn for longer than the standard disposable face masks and have a rating against particles.
Wearing them raises your level of protection in the current pandemic, alongside everything else you are doing to improve hygiene. All of our masks have been CE and FDA listed for approval.
This is a KN95 PPE mask which is a like-for-like equivalent of an N95 mask. The naming difference is because different rating agencies call them different things.
The full specifications can be found in this document on the 3M website.

Studies comparing mask wearing to non-mask wearing persons in medical situations show that there is additional effectiveness against viruses. This isn't to say that mask wearing alone is a panacea - along with this, there should be continued 20 second hand washing with soap and social distancing.
Our masks are made of high quality non-woven, material which is essential to stopping micro-sized particles, and for keeping a barrier between your face and external particulate matter. It contains a bendable nose piece allowing for a better fit against your face. These are used daily in Asia for general health: suitable for adults and teenagers, they are perfect accessories for droplet and particle protection all year round.
Professionals will often use use masks to keep bacteria and germs out, or patients will be given masks to stop them from spreading their germs around. Keep breathing fresher and stay healthier in all situations - allowing you and your family a better lifestyle. This is a must have mask when are out or amongst crowds, suitable for household, clean rooms, shops, when using public transport etc.
Breathe better air - face masks protect your mouth and face from droplet transfer, particles, pollution, dust, ash, allergy, odours, vehicle exhaust, passive smoking etc.
Our masks have a bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) of > 95% and a fluid resistance of 120mmHg - which reflects the mask's ability to minimise the amount of fluid that could transfer from the outer layers through to the inner layer as the result of a splash or spray. They have also been tested as 'cool' in terms of ease of airflow when breathing normally.
This is made with layers of polypropylene fabric, and is one of the lightest, safest breathable synthetic fabrics around - used every day in wearable textiles, tote bags, and commonly in surgical masks. Much like how you have clothing made of polyester, PP is an excellent, fitting and safe material for masks.
It is our belief that the more people that have, and are wearing masks, the more protected we all become against viruses - we can't socially isolate forever without additional protection, even when we are free to travel around and it's better to be safe than sorry.
Stay safe. Keep washing your hands with soap, stay home where possible, and stay protected when you have to go out.
How to wear your face mask:
As you will understand due to the recent outbreak of a new Coronavirus, we are experiencing an unusually high demand for the supply of personal protective equipment including masks. Whilst we are actively trying to fulfil the current demand for N95 disposable and surgical style masks through our wide supply chain, the manufacturers are now restricting the amount supplied to stockists.
Please refer to the links below for more detailed information on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV):
World Health Organisation
Wearing a medical mask can help limit the spread of some respiratory disease. However, using a mask alone is not guaranteed to stop infections and should be combined with other prevention measures including hand and respiratory hygiene and avoiding close contact – at least 6 feet distance between yourself and other people.
WHO advises on rational use of medical masks thus avoiding unnecessary wastage of precious resources and potential mis-use of masks (see Advice on the use of masks). This means using masks only if you have respiratory symptoms (coughing or sneezing), have suspected 2019-nCoV infection with mild symptoms or are caring for someone with suspected 2019-nCoV infection. A suspected 2019-nCoV infection is linked to travel in an area in China where 2019-nCoV has been reported, or close contact with someone who has travelled from China and has respiratory symptoms.
