Honeywell’s 800 Series Single Use Moulded Masks Provide Enhanced Fit, Comfort And Protection
ROISSY, France, 12 May, 2016 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today a new range of single-use, moulded masks featuring a PU foam seal that has been designed to improve safety, performance and comfort.
Certified to the requirements of EN 149: 2001+A1: 2009 (for disposable respirators) pursuant to the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC and Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) compliant, Honeywell’s new 800 series single-use moulded masks are made of high performing, humidity and low breathing resistant material. As such, they are ideal for construction and general industrial environments where workers are exposed to hazardous materials found in dust, mist and fumes.
“The 800 series is a stylish, professional-looking mask, which brings a new image to the market and is very comfortable to wear,” said Terry Crumpton, senior product manager, EMEAI Respiratory Protection. “In hazardous environments, it is essential that workers have the right level of protection. Its high performing exhalation valve keeps the mask cool inside and reduces the CO2 content while its professional look encourages user uptake.”
The filtering facepieces (FFPs) are available in classes FFP1 and FFP2, with and without a valve depending on the application, and need only minimum adjustments to provide a comfortable and secure fit. The single-use masks can also be easily worn with safety spectacles or goggles, so that the wearer is able to maintain an excellent field of vision while carrying out tasks. The mask’s high performance exhalation valve adds to the overall performance and enhances comfort to enable the respiratory protection for a maximum of 8 hours.
The shell incorporates an arc ribbing, which has been designed to ensure that the mask retains its shape, a metallic nose clip that makes it easier for the user to fit the respirator around the nose, and highly flexible and resistant double elastic straps welded outside the filtering material to decrease any risk of leakage and help to increase stability and fit on the workers’ face. As an added enhancement, the masks’ ultra-light respirators (from 8 to 14g) minimise wearer fatigue and increase wearer acceptance.
The Honeywell 800 series is not only fully compliant with applicable EU standards, but it has also undergone an optional Dolomite test to ensure a high resistance to clogging. This means that the mask can be used for a long period of time while maintaining its performance in breathing resistance and filtration. Finally, the single-use masks do not contain any latex, PVC or silicone, which prevents irritations and the risk of allergies.
