Are you prepared for winter?

We are pleased to see so many NHS Trusts preparing for winter – we have shipped hundreds of RPE Kits/Grabs Bags already this year and new orders are flooding in daily. Our loose fitting powered air respirators do not require a fit test because a tight fitting seal is not required, they rely on enough clean air being provided to the wearer to prevent contaminant leaking in. These respirators are ideal for staff, who for a variety of reasons, cannot or have not been fit tested.

  • Staff with facial hair.
  • Staff with scars, burns, moles, piercings etc. around the seal of a tight fitting respirator.
  • Staff who wear hijabs, turbans, glasses, safety goggles, hearing aids & other PPE required for work that interferes with the seal.
  • Staff unable to carry out a fit test due to medical reasons
  • Staff who have had facial surgery or major orthodontic work leaving them unable to achieve a fit test pass on a tight fitting mask
  • Staff awaiting a fit test & visitors

Loose fitting respirators are also a great solution when a respirator needs to be worn for extended periods – for comfort reasons.

“In the vast majority of scenarios loose fitting alternatives to tight-fitting masks are available and should be selected where necessary.”
