Air pollution may be a global problem, but its effects are all too apparent closer to home. Those most at risk are those living in UK cities where exposure to pollution can have serious implications to good health.
People who are frequently exposed to environments which include gases and vapours from car pollution – such as urban cyclists and runners – should take appropriate precautions by wearing a correctly fitted mask as this will provide some protection for the lungs.
Respro® masks have been used by cyclists, runners, couriers, allergy sufferers and the fire and rescue services for more than 20 years. The company is a technological pioneer and market leader in this field and continuously develops new products to protect people against air borne pollution.
The new Respro® Skins™ range is the company’s most fashionable range to date, which enables the wearer to match their style and complement their active wardrobe.
There are three main parts to the mask, the outer shell material with nose clip and Velcro fasteners, the valve system and the filter. The Skins™ range is unique as it enables customers to customise their own look and style. A choice of valves can be matched to a design on the Respro® website.
To see the new Skins™ range and how they can now be personalised, go to respro.com/pollution-masks/skins.
Respro® has created an animation to bring awareness to dangers of air pollution and how wearing a Respro® mask can help protect people against air borne pollution. Search “The Air We Breathe” on Youtube.
