People in the Far East have worn facemasks outside for many, many years - it's the norm for them. It now looks as if it's going to be part of our daily lives here in the west too for some time to come.
The paper, surgical type facemasks are very popular because they are effective and comfortable to wear. They help filter the droplets of moisture which pass out of your mouth and nose when you breath. It must be stressed though that these masks remain effective for about 4 hours after which time they need to be disposed of. The cannot be washed or cleaned and used again.
The masks we have sourced are a very high quality. They consist of 3 layers (3 Ply) -
Soft, elastic ear loops make sure the mask is comfortable to wear. A flexible nose piece makes sure you can mould the mask to ensure a comfortable, snug fit.
The protective masks are made from non-woven polypropylene (NWPP). This material is a spun filament as opposed to a woven material like cloth and is commonly used in surgical masks because of its bacteria filtration and air permeability. It helps block the spread of droplets from coughs and sneezes.
Our masks are supplied in sealed packs of 10, 20 or 50 and are supplied post free. At the moment we can only accept orders from the UK - sorry.
