Learn more about the protection levels of our masks!
We produce FFP2 level masks and commercially available surgical (OP) masks, also called mouth-nose protection. These differ not only in appearance and price, but also offer different protection for wearers and third parties.
Medical masks for protecting the mouth and nose, so-called surgical/operation masks (OP-Mask), are mainly used in the medical sector such as doctors' surgeries, clinics or in nursing. Their main purpose is to prevent the spread of saliva or breath droplets and primarily serve to protect the person opposite. Surgical masks are therefore classified as medical products and must comply with legal regulations. Therefore, our masks are produced entirely in accordance with the DIN EN 14683:2019-6 standard and with CE certificate*.
Abbreviated from Filtering Facepiece, FFP2-Masks not only protect the wearer, but also the opposite person. FFP-Masks keep out pollutants and also viruses, but above all solid and liquid aerosols and fall within the scope of the personal protective equipment (PPE). A distinction is made between masks with exhalation valve and masks without; masks without valve filter both the inhaled air and the exhaled air and thus provide both self-protection and protection against foreign bodies. FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3-Masks are available, depending on the filter performance. The WHO recommend FFP-Masks of levels 2 and 3 for the treatment and care of patients with an infection by the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Our FFP2-Masks are therefore produced according to the DIN EN 149:2001 standard, have CE certification* and have a BFE (bacterial filter efficiency) of over 95%.
