FAQs

How often should I change my mask?

These are single use to avoid cross contamination. The mask can be worn for up to 8 hours. If it gets damp then it is recommended that you replace it.

Why have 3 pleats on a 3-ply medical mask?

The pleats reduce the risk of fluid penetration by preventing fluids pooling on the mask. They also help make the mask more comfortable.

What is the main difference between medical masks?

The main difference between masks is their certification level. Generally, higher levels of certification standards require masks to offer higher protection and take into account the wearers' environment. For example, you would not need a surgical respirator type KN95 mask in an open environment, KN95 masks are intended for healthcare staff working in high risk Covid-19 clinical applications or where the highest level of protection is required.
