Facemasks and Dust Masks
When it comes to protecting your respiratory system from harmful particles, there are a variety of face masks and respirators available on the market. Honeywell is a leading manufacturer of personal protective equipment (PPE), and the Honeywell Store offers a wide range of face masks and respirators to meet the needs of different users.
Honeywell N95 Masks
Honeywell N95 masks are one of the most popular types of face masks available. They are designed to filter out 95% of airborne particles that are 0.3 microns or larger. This makes them an effective choice for protecting against dust, pollen, and other pollutants.
The Honeywell Store also offers a variety of other face masks that are not N95-rated. These masks may be less effective at filtering out small particles, but they can still provide some protection against dust, pollen, and other pollutants.
Honeywell Face Respirators
In addition to face masks, Honeywell also offers a variety of face respirators. Respirators are more tightly fitted than face masks and provide a higher level of protection. They are often used by healthcare workers, firefighters, and other people who are exposed to high levels of airborne contaminants.
Full Face Masks
Full face masks are a type of respirator that covers the entire face. They provide the highest level of protection and are often used in industrial settings where there is a risk of exposure to hazardous chemicals or fumes.
Disposable Face Masks
Disposable face masks are single-use masks that are made of paper or fabric. They are a convenient and cost-effective option for protecting against dust, pollen, and other pollutants.
Disposable respirators are single-use respirators that are made of a variety of materials, including paper, fabric, and plastic. They are a convenient and cost-effective option for protecting against dust, pollen, and other pollutants.
