    Hi

    I cycle in London every day but I fancy the ultralight mask so as it’s comfy, breathable and washable. Would the filters be too weak for London pollution?

    Hi, can I use Cinqro Urban Filter with a Techno mask?

    Hi, I work in a steel manufacturing plant. What would be best against fine steel dust? Currently using 3M N95 mask.

    • Hi
      Sounds like you need an occupational mask and should get in touch with a health and safety officer to do a risk assessment to determine what PPE would be suitable for the levels of dust and chemicals/materials your are being exposed to. This is something that we recommend to all occupational enquiries of this type.

      The respiratory protection you using at the moment is N95, you could also improve the spec by using an N99 rated mask.

    Hi there, I have a question regarding sizing. I’m a guy standing at 168cm tall weighing at 54kg, athletic small build. According to your size chart, for my height and weight, i should be a medium for the Sportsta mask. However, you did specify medium build. Will the medium work for me? Thanks in advance, Alvin

    • Hi Alvin

      For us to specify the correct size we need the following data:

      Height: 168cm
      Weight: 54kg
      Neck size:
      Head size:
      Eye to chin length:

      Height:
      (most people know their height)
      Weight:
      (most people know their weight)
      Neck Size:
      Using piece of cotton or string, measure the circumference around the neck. use a ruler to determine the length of string. This is the neck circumference. Easier still check your shirt size.
      Head size (AKA Hat Size):
      Using piece of cotton or string, measure the circumference around the head. use a ruler to determine the length of string. This is the head or hat size circumference.
      Eye to Chin:
      Take a piece of string and place it between the eyes on the top of the nose bridge, run the string over the tip of your nose and down to just under the chin. This is the eye to chin length.

    I have a question about filtration for 3 filters:
    What is the technological difference between the Cinqro, the Techno and the FB-1 filters? What are their filtration capabilities and performance?
    My second query is: is the FB-1 filter is compatible with my Sportsta Mask?

    Best regards,
    Julien.

    • Respro UK Ltd says:

      Hi Julien

      All filters and valves are interchangeable in all masks (except Metro) provided they are the same size, ie large filter for large mask.

      Kind regards

      FYI:

      Filter Differences

      The Sportsta filter has sub-micron filtration capability (sports). What this means is that it is able to trap particles less than one micron in size which is more than capable of the removal of 2.5 micron particulate material (PM). Typically particulate pollution in the cities appears to be in the 2.5 micron size range and above. Particles smaller than this are known as respirable dusts, which can lodge deep within the lungs and air sacs. This is the more dangerous type of particle pollution as chemicals from vehicle exhaust gases combustion known to be toxic, are carried by means of the respirable particles. Hence the need for a Hepa-type submicron particle filter.

      The Techno filter has both sub-micron, gas and vapour filtration capability. What this means is that it has the same capability as the Sports filter’s particulate material plus a layer of DACC Activated charcoal layer. It has excellent adsorption properties when it comes to SO2 and NO2 uptakes. With submicron dust filtering capability and its capability of filtering VOC’s it is the best filter available in our range for dealing with the broad spectrum of pollutants commonly found in major cities across the globe.

      The City filter has gas and vapour filtration capability. It particulate filtration but not the same spec as the filter in the Sports filter. It has excellent adsorption properties when it comes to SO2 and NO2 uptakes. For submicron dust filtering capability it is best to choose either the Techno filter or the Sports filter.

      The Cinqro sports
      The filter fitted in the Cinqro has sub-micron filtration capability (same as sports) . What this means is that it is able to trap particles less than one micron in size which is more than capable of the removal of 2.5 micron particulate material (PM). Typically particulate pollution in the cities appears to be in the 2.5 micron size range and above. Particles smaller than this are known as respirable dusts, which can lodge deep within the lungs and air sacs. This is the more dangerous type of particle pollution as chemicals from vehicle exhaust gases combustion known to be toxic, are carried by means of the respirable particles. Hence the need for a Hepa-type submicron particle filter.

      The Cinqro Urban
      The second filter, in the packaging, is a combination filter the same specification as the Techno filter, but a different more user friendly construction (Respro® Allergy mask).
      The DACC Activated charcoal layer within this filter has excellent adsorption properties when it comes to SO2 and NO2 uptakes. With submicron dust filtering capability and its capability of filtering VOC’s it is the best filter available in our range for dealing with the broad spectrum of pollutants commonly found in major cities across the globe.

      The Allergy Particle filters out sub micron particulates. This includes particles such as dust and pollen, which normally are the cause of allergic reactions. This means that it can filter out smaller particles than PM 2.5 (Particulate Material). Particulates that are sub-micron are more dangerous due to their ability to transport themselves deep into the lung.

      The Allergy Chemical Particle filter is a combination filter. It combines a submicron particle layer with an activated charcoal layer (DACC). It has the ability to filter both Particulate matter and gaseous by products. This filter more suited to people who have MCS disorder.

      The FB-1 filter comes in two formats a Hepa-type filter (sports) and a Combination filter (urban). It comes with valves already fixed to the filter.

    any distributors of ResPro in Malaysia?

    • Respro UK Ltd says:

      Hi Andrew,

      Regrettably we do not have any dealers in Malaysia.

      For commuting in major cities, we recommend the Techno mask where pollution is high and full of diesel particulates. The Techno filter in the Techno mask is the Sports mask filter and the City mask filter combined giving the user both sub-micron particle filtration with gas and vapour filtration.

      The Techno filter has sub-micron filtration capability. What this means is that it is able to trap particles less than one micron in size which is more than capable of the removal of 2.5 micron particulate material (PM).

      The DACC Activated charcoal layer within the Techno filter has excellent adsorption properties when it comes to SO2 and NO2 uptakes. With this capability and its capability of filtering VOC’s it is the best filter available in our range for dealing with the broad spectrum of pollutants commonly found in major cities across the globe.

      Our masks are available in a range of sizes to ensure a good fit.
      As a rule of thumb mask sizing is as follows;
      5′ Heavy Build – 5’6′ Average Build = Medium
      5’6″ Heavy Build – 6′ Average Build = Large
      6′ Heavy Build – 6’+ Average Build = X-Large

    Do you have mask for kids?

    • Respro UK Ltd says:

      Our concern in providing masks for children is that the size variation in children is so wide. that a “childs” mask will not fit the range of sizes that children come in.

      We suggest that alternative ‘common sense’ precautions ie hood on push chairs, keep away from large congested or dense traffic environments; if you cannot, then place something in front of their faces more like a guard to prevent air/wind/ polluted air from direct contact. The ‘small’ mask is the smallest size available. This would ordinarily cover very small adults and older children. Children’s breathing rates are considerably lower that that of a walking adult so they should not be in too much danger if exposed to pollution for irregular periods of time. In general, common sense practice should be applied where at all possible.

  11. Ernest says:

    what size would you recommend for asian male? Height 174cm weight 74kg

    Can Sportsa mask use the filters from Cinqro??? or are all the various type of filters interchangeable among the mask???

    Thanks

    • Respro UK Ltd says:

      Hi,

      You would require size L.

      The City™, Sportsta™ and Techno™ masks all have interchangeable filters and valves to allow you to choose the best option of mask and filter dependent on your needs.

      Hope this helps!

      • Pranav Naik says:

        I understand that the filters in these three are interchangeable, however Ernest and I have the same question, is it possible to install a Cinqro filter in a City mask? Sportsta for Ernest.

      • Respro UK Ltd says:

        You can install a Cinqro™ filter in a City™ or Sportsta™ mask provided they are the same size. ie Large filter large mask.

  12. Suheb Haq says:

    What is the best mask/filter combination that protects against pm 2.5 and yet is suitable for intense outdoor physical activity in all weather conditions? Thank you.

    • Respro UK Ltd says:

      For your activity we would be recommending that you buy a Sportsta™ mask and change the filter to a Techno filter. This is the best combination mask for sport activity in the city environment It will have the best airflow characteristics combined with the best filtration. I use this combination for around town use when I bike around London. It does not impair cardio function and may even assist especially with the cold snaps that we have been having.

      The only time I had to remove the mask was climbing a hill off road in the snow and my heart rate was topping 160bpm. By that time I was in an anaerobic state so I know its good for 160 bpm without having to remove it for one or other reason. However you can buy the Techno filter at a later date once you have got used to wearing the Sportsta™ mask. It has the best valves that readily dump heat, water vapor, and CO2 which you don’t need or want when inhaling.

      Hope this is of help.
