Which Respro® Mask to use for wildfire smoke

Air pollution from burning shrub land and forest fires is made up of carbonaceous particulates in the form of black smoke and resultant chemical compounds from burning sap from the trees.

We recommend the Respro® Ultralight™ Mask with a Cinqro™ Urban filter pack.

The filter fitted in the Respro® Ultralight™ Mask as standard (Cinqro™ Sports filter) is a Hepa-type filter, perfect for sub-micron black smoke particulates and pollen (smaller than PM2.5 and less than 1 micron).

The filter pack supplied with the ‘combo’ kit is the Cinqro™ Urban Filter.  This filter is a combination filter made of an Dynamic Activated Charcoal Cloth (DACC) layer laminated to the Hepa-type particulate layer of the Sports filter. It provides a broader spectrum of screening which would include wood gas and carbonaceous pollution together with filtration from urban vehicle pollution.

The Respro® Ultralight™ Mask is made from air permeable material which is good for facial ventilation, comes in 4 sizes for a comfortable flexible fit and is fitted with the Powa Elite valves for humidity control in the filter.

A more economical solution would be the Respro® Techno™ Mask, as this has a combination filter similar in specification to the Cinqro™ Urban Filter.

 

 

All Respro® masks have interchangeable filters and valves to allow you to choose the best option of mask and filter dependent on your needs and build a mask to your own specification mask.

PERSONAL SIZING GUIDE

http://respro.com/pg/faqs/mask-sizing-guide

It is important that a mask fits correctly otherwise air will just pass through the gaps and not function how it is intended. Even if it has the best filter; if it is a poor fit it will reduce its ability to filter out the pollutants.

If you do use our website service, we strongly recommend that you send in your details to confirm your sizing. We ask this so that we can ensure you have the correct size and that the mask will be of benefit to you or those who are using it. It is also important for any sizing issues that may arise so we are able to assess and resolve any problems.
