As the Coronavirus pandemic has continued, face masks have become ubiquitous across the world. It seems that today, a mask is required in most indoor areas no matter where you go. That’s why, especially in the UK, it's important to understand why a mask is required. What about the mask on your face keeps you safe? Read on: Here at Buy Any Gloves, we stock Type IIR Face Masks. A.K.A EN14683, these high-grade, multi-purpose masks were designed to prevent large particles from reaching patients or working surfaces in a medical scenario. Type IIR Face masks have a 4 ply construction that includes a splash-resistant layer to protect against fluids such as blood. We believe Type IIR Masks are the best balance between comfort and safety. Safety Type IIR masks come with a solid set of safety implementations for a lightweight material. The blue-tinted splash resistant layer is designed to keep most bodily fluids out. This is ideal in the current pandemic, where cough droplets can lead to multiple infections. A thin metal strip is fitted in the top band of the mask and can be bent to conform to the shape of your nose for a tight but comfortable fit that helps keep germs out. Comfort As aforementioned, the metal strip placed at the top provides a contourable mask. Thanks to this moulded fit, the mask provides no discomfort upon extensive wear. The material over the mouth is breathable and lightweight – barely noticeable on the face. Whilst an FFP3 Respirator may provide a more comprehensive cover against contamination, with social distancing measures in place a type IIR mask is far more comfortable and just as safe at a two-metre distance.
