What is the FFP2 NR Filtering Half Mask? 

The FFP2 Filtering Half Masks offer protection against moderate levels of airborne particles including dust, aerosols and vapours. These masks are also recommended for use by the World Health Organisation (WHO) during the pandemic, but they can also be used to protect yourself against the influenza virus. This product contains 15 masks.


How to use this product

Disposable face masks should be used once and then thrown in the bin. You should also dispose of and replace your mask when they become moist. Disposable masks are easy to use, simply follow the following steps:

  • Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser before touching the mask
  • Remove a mask from the box and make sure there are no obvious tears or holes in either side of the mask
  • The side of the mask that has the stiff strip should be placed at the top, across your nose
  • Place a loop around each ear to secure
  • Pull the bottom of the mask over your mouth and chin

How to remove the mask:

  • Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before touching the mask
  • Avoid touching the front of the mask as it is contaminated – only touch the ear loops
  • Hold both of the ear loops and gently lift and remove the mask
  • Dispose of the mask in a bin
  • Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer


When should face masks be worn?

During an outbreak of a virus like COVID-19, it’s particularly important to wear a face mask in crowded places or clinical environments, such as your GP surgery and hospital. When used with frequent hand-washing and hand sanitiser, you’ll lower the risk of spreading an infection to others, which may be on your mind if you have a vulnerable or elderly person in your life.


Which face mask is best if you wear glasses? 

It’s most likely not your mask that’s the problem, but the way you wear it. Check that your mask is fitted tightly to your face and further up your nose - this will ensure that your breath isn’t escaping to fog up the lenses. If it’s too loose, tighten the ear loops or try sticking some surgical tape on the bridge of your nose to secure the mask.


What does PPE stand for? 

You may have heard the term ‘PPE’ a lot during the pandemic - but what does it mean? PPE stands for personal protective equipment, which means anything worn by one person to protect themselves against health and safety hazards, such as face coverings or gloves.


Are reusable face coverings effective? 

Washable or reusable face coverings are effective, with researchers reporting that they block between 62% and 87% of particles. However, surgical masks are a better option if you’re looking for the ultimate protection, blocking a higher average of 78%.


Storage information

Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children. Do not use after the expiry date, referring to the last day of the month stated on the packaging.
