The community barrier mask, model 5A, lightweight, comfortable, offers protection supported by 5 distinct layers, reducing the risk of transmission of germs by limiting:
The dispersion in the air of respiratory secretions produced when talking or breathing;
The projection of particles through the mouth or nose when coughing or sneezing.
While being washable and reusable.
Design, fabrication and selection of materials
Its unique design, through the choice of materials used, gives it these properties, making it unique and different from other options available on the market. The materials used have been selected for their performance and efficiency characteristics, confirmed by validation tests.
The barrier mask, 5A, is composed of several layers, including
An inner and outer envelope,
Made of 99.9% pure silver fabric, covering 100% of the fabric surface. The silver ions, having demonstrated for millennia, an anti- microbial efficiency, giving it a safety during handling.
The silver tissue is manufactured in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard (Lloyd's Register Certificate 10247100).
The raw material used, was investigated by Hoenstein Laboratories GmbH & Co.KG /Schlosssteige 1/74357 Bonnigheim /Germany and certified for
- Antimicrobial activity (Z-787074 report 20.8.3.0026/1)
- Biological safety" (Z-161795 report 19.8.5.0290)
A lightweight filtering membrane with proven filtration efficiency
- Bacterial Filtration Efficacy (BFE ) * 99% *
- Particle Filtration Efficacy at 0.1 μg ** 87,7 %
Interspersed with a spray-resistant layer
The mask is also equipped with a band allowing an optimal adjustment at the nose level.
The entire mask is covered with a protective layer that provides the required performance to the inner membranes of the mask. The assembly of these layers that make up the mask gives it easy and sufficient breathability, while being washable, reusable and resistant.
The community-type barrier mask is not intended to protect the person wearing it. It serves to prevent the wearer from infecting those around him or her.
