    Disposable Respirators

    Disposable respirators are pieces of personal protective equipment that protect against the inhalation of hazardous particles suspended in the air. Our expertly selected range features masks capable of protecting against chemicals, dust, and fumes, with options from experienced manufacturers such as 3M, Dräger, and Moldex, amongst others.

    Dust masks for maintenance work

    Preparing to do maintenance work? Disposable respirators are often employed as dusk masks, used to protect personnel from inhaling the fine particles released when completing construction work. These particles can contain numerous substances dangerous to health if inhaled. Respirators collect the particles and after each use can be disposed of, offering a convenient solution.

    Choose the best mask for your needs

    Disposable respirators are manufactured in various forms and materials to protect against different contaminants. Choosing the correct type for your requirement is an important consideration as respirators are often specialised for protection against specific substances. Consider the contaminants present carefully when choosing a disposable respirator.

    FFP1 masks, N95 masks, and other respirator ratings

    Multiple regulatory bodies govern the different criteria disposable respirators must satisfy to qualify for their respective protection ratings. Consequently, different terminologies exist in different regions to describe the degree of protection offered.

    FFP1, FFP2, and FFP3 are terms used primarily in Europe to classify the filtering efficiency of respirators. To satisfy the requirements for FFP1, a respirator must filter at least 80% of particles with leakage of <22%. For FFP2, it must filter 94% of particles with leakage of <8%. To obtain FFP3, the most stringent classification, a respirator must filter 99% with leakage of <2%.


    N95, N99, and N100 are common ratings used primarily for respirators manufactured in the United States. This classification assigns an alphanumeric value, with the initial value categorising the respirator as either “N” for non-oil-resistant, “R” for oil-resistant or “P” for oil-proof. The latter value defines the percentage of particles filtered. The most stringent ratings for this criterion are N100, R100, and P100 respectively.


    In China, respirators are rated using a similar criterion. “KN” in their alphanumeric value represents that the respirator filters non-oily particles, while “KP” represents it filters oily particles. The proceeding numeric value represents the percentage of particles it filters.
