Respiratory Protection

174 PPE offer a comprehensive range of respirators, face masks and filters to provide you with the protection you need.  

Wearing the right type of mask with the correct type of protection is vital to protect your worker health and wellbeing. Using the wrong mask for the job lead to serious health issues.  These can start off as small irritation, but further exposure can lead to soft tissue damage and can go as far as lung failure and cancers.

Respirators and face masks are a crucial piece of PPE and something that is going to safeguard you against any airborne contaminants that are present within your workplace. Depending on the type of face masks or dust masks you’re using, you can also benefit from being shielded from hazards such as vehicle fumes if you work in highway maintenance, or the inhalation or harmful bacteria within the medical industries.

EN149:2001 respiratory mask and filters are designed to protect against solids, water-based aerosols, and oil-based aerosols. There are three classes of protection detailed in EN149:2001 – FFP1, FFP2 & FFP3. FFP1 face masks being the ‘least’ protective and FFP3 masks being the ‘most’.
