This article introduced why we need to buy mask and analysis from two types of mask: Why Gas Mask and Chemical Respirator Mask


Why should I buy a Gas Mask?

Buying a Gas Mask has its benefits, but it also has its drawbacks. Gas Masks provide protection from chemicals and gases in the environment. However, you need to be aware that not all Gas Masks are created equal. Not all Gas Masks and filters are effective against chemical warfare and riot control agents. Without protection against these agents, Gas Masks are much less effective and almost completely useless. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the filters that come with Gas Masks are effective against nuclear and chemical threats. In addition, size and fit are critical. Many Gas Masks come in different sizes, which can greatly affect the filtration of dangerous chemical agents in the air.


Filter life for Gas Masks can also be a major issue when using Gas Masks in hazardous environments. Most Gas Masks have filters that need to be replaced within a few hours of initial use, which is detrimental when used in hazardous environments. Finally, in the case of a chemical attack, release or spill, it is almost always too late when you put on your Gas Mask. Gas Masks are not easily transported or carried on a daily basis, which results in a delay in getting protection when you need it. This can seriously affect your health and can lead to high levels of exposure.


Why Buy a Chemical Respirator Mask?

Chemical respirator masks can offer a vast number of benefits compared to Gas Masks for protection against chemicals and particulates. Firstly, unlike Gas Masks, chemical respirator masks offer protection without full face coverage. Chemical respirator masks go over the ears and will cover your nose and mouth for inhalation protection. Although this does not offer eye protection, it is for many people, a better option as it does not invoke claustrophobia in people who are claustrophobic. All you need with this chemical respirator mask is a pair of protective goggles and your face will be protected.


Also, chemical respirator masks, specifically the FAST-ACT VapourKlenz Face Mask is a broad spectrum chemical neutralization filter that is able to neutralize a vast amount of chemicals that come into contact with the filter. Gas Masks only work against certain chemicals; therefore, a chemical respirator mask can offer more protection against chemicals. The filter life on a chemical respirator mask can also have a longer lifespan than that of a Gas Mask. Gas Masks that use carbon technology filtration can fill up within hours after exposure to a toxic environment, whereas a chemical respirator mask, FAST-ACT VapourKlenz Face Mask, will last up to 3 months in hazardous conditions. Lastly, a chemical respirator mask offers more accessibility as the lightweight mask can be easily carried wherever you go, allowing you to be prepared to place the protective gear on as soon as chemicals are exposed into your environment.


Personal protection safety gear should be a concern for every and all individuals that want to protect themselves and the ones they love in the case of an emergency situation like a chemical attack or spill. Having the proper protective safety gear such as a chemical respirator mask will aid you in minimizing exposure and protecting your overall health.
