Elipse Mask with P3 Filters
The Elipse Half-Face Mask represents a major leap in mask design and the development of new technology. The result is a mask that enables the wearer to feel more comfortable and less constricted without compromising the efficiency and effectiveness of the mask. Complete with P3 filters.
The Elipse P3 provides protection against dust particles, metal fumes, mists, vapours, bacteria & viruses. It is perfect for everyday use from DIY and commercial construction through to the more demanding environments of metalworking, welding and stonemasonry.
A mask designed to be worn for up to eight hours needs to pay special attention to the ongoing comfort of the wearer. Hence the starting point of an ergonomic design aimed at fitting the contours of the face. Silicon and latex-free, odour-free, non-allergic medical grade materials have been used for the construction of the mask itself as well as for the materials used in the construction of the filters. The head-strap has four adjustable locations for increased comfort, and a protective headband
at the rear. The compact design further reduces the risk of the mask interfering with the users line of vision, or with any eye or ear protection that must also be worn.
A large area non-return exhaust valve has been utilised to provide low breathing resistance which in turn reduces wearer fatigue and the subsequent discomfort experienced by conventional masks. The mask is supplied with P3 filters as standard to provide maximum protection.
HESPA Filter Media
When development commenced none of the filter medias available met the requirements for the new mask. Plenty of high efficiency medias were available, but none combined a sufficiently low pressure loss with the high enough efficiency that was required to produce the low-depth filter needed. Thus, HESPA media - a high efficiency synthetic media with a low pressure loss - was developed to NFC Specialist Product's specification. The HESPA media range has efficiencies from 99.95 percent to 99.999 percent, and has been shown to be more robust than the conventional glass medias used in respirator filters.
