THERE ARE FOUR RESPRO® FILTER TYPES
T1. DAAC Filter
T2. Hepa-Type Filter
T3. Combination Filter (DAAC + Hepa-Type)
T4. SUB-MICRON PARTICLE FILTER
FILTER TYPE 1
DACC: City filter
The DACC filter is used for the removal of acid gases and organic vapours associated with vehicle emissions.
It has a particle filtration layer that removes PM10 but is not sub-micron.
FILTER TYPE 2
HEPA-TYPE: Sports filter / Cinqro sports filter / Allergy particle filter
A Hepa-type filter, gives the user sub-micron particle filtration only. It is a filter that targets physical particulates only (PM2.5 and sub micron particulates, i.e. less than 1 micron AKA ultra fine particulates). As it is a single layer of filter media it has a lower inhalation resistance and is good for hay fever sufferers and those people (urban trainers) who want to keep the fine respirable exhaust dusts from entering the lungs, but still feel as though they can push to the limit.
FILTER TYPE 3
COMBINATION FILTER: Techno filter / Cinqro Urban filter / Allergy chemical/particle filter
A Combination filter gives the user both sub-micron particle filtration with gas and vapour filtration, which would include airborne viral matter. It is a combination of the City filter and the Sports filter. The sub-micron filtration capability of the Sports filter means that it is able to trap ultra fine particulates less than one micron in size combined with the our DACC filter for vehicle exhaust emissions. This combination is the perfect filter for urban pollution attributed to cars, buses and lorries and the current airborne viral threat.
FILTER TYPE 4
SUB-MICRON PARTICLE FILTER: CE HT-250 filter
The new Hepa-Type™ CE HT-250 filter, gives the user tested and certified filtration to PPE Regulation requirements 2016/425 for filtering face masks. This is a particle filter only.
PLEASE NOTE: All our filters are interchangeable, provided they are the same size as your mask. i.e. large mask fits large filter.
HOW TO CHANGE THE FILTER IN A RESPRO® MASK
Watch a short tutorial on how to change the filter in your Respro® Mask.
WHEN TO CHANGE THE FILTER IN A RESPRO® MASK
Approximately once a month for the average urban cyclist.
For cycle commuting on a daily basis, we recommend that the filter should be replaced every month or every 69 hours, whichever is sooner.
This estimate is based on the characteristics of the typical active urban cyclist’s commute assuming a 30 minute journey to work and back, a breathing rate of 30 litres of air per minute and a location where the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that the average citizen should wear some form of respiratory protection.
To maintain hygiene levels of your mask, we recommend daily use of our Respro® Sanitiser. It is non-toxic, kills 99.9% of all common germs and bacteria.
