The Different Types of RESPRO Pollution Masks
Advances in technology have made masks more diverse, targeted and effective than ever before. The flip side of the coin is that you now have to spend more time finding out which kind of mask will protect you best. To help speed things up a bit, we’ve put together this brief overview of all the Respro masks we sell along with some key features for each. Note that styles are due to change on occassion.
The Respro®City™ anti-pollution mask excels in protecting wearers against particles and odors from vehicle exhaust. The City™ mask’s contoured design will fit snugly to the face and is made of hypo-allergenic Neoprene. The City™ ‘s exhalation valves allow unwanted heat, carbon dioxide and water vapor to be vented out, making regular breathing more comfortable.
The Respro® Allergy™ mask is the best choice for those with acute allergies and/or chemical sensitivities. The polypropylene HEPA-type filter eliminates fine sub-micron particles. Respro®Allergy™ masks are made from chemically inert materials to reduce the possibility of an allergic reaction and have earned an ‘Allergy Friendly Product’ award from the British Allergy Foundation.
The Respro® Bandit™ scarf fits easily on the face and features activated charcoal filters to protect wearers against dusts and lasts for at least six months.
The Cinqro™ is designed with sporty end users in mind—that’s anyone who is going to be wearing a mask while breathing harder than the average pedestrian. Powa Elite™ valves on the Cinqro™ allow for much better air flow, making breathing easier. This mask also features a secondary filtration option beyond submicron particle targeting HEPA-type filter. The DACC (Dynamic Activated Charcoal Cloth) eliminates odors and is useful in areas featuring strong odors like farming/agricultural areas.
The EV™ mask offers basic protection against dust and viral matter commonly found in urban environments. These masks meet European Standards for Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and are rated up to FFP3—the highest rating (equivalent to N99 rating in North America).
The FB-1™ mask was developed to protect firefighters from contamination in situations where a full breathing apparatus wouldn’t be worn but exposure to dangerous particulates is likely. This mask is produced to EN149 standards and effectively filters sub-micron particulates.
The Neoprene Metro™ mask is a basic, machine washable Velcro-fastened mask designed for comfortable fit and protection against coarse, non-toxic particles, dust and odors.
The Respro® Nitesight™ is designed with nighttime cyclists in mind. Filters provide effective protection against vehicle exhaust pollutants while the mask’s bright, highly reflective Scotchlite™ skin enhances rider visibility and safety in low light or nighttime conditions. Hypo-allergenic Neoprene construction and exhalation valves make this an excellent mask for anyone anticipating hard breathing during their rides.
The Respro® Sportsta™ mask is specifically designed to provide comfort and protection for anyone engaged in high-intensity cardio exercises. Hepa-Type filtration protects the wearer against sub-micron pollutants like pollens and dusts. Powa Valves™ provide excellent ventilation, ensuring anyone involved in demanding cardio exercises can breathe easily and are never fatigued by lack of air.
The Techno™ mask combines Hepa-Type filtration with Dynamic ACC (Activated Charcoal Cloth) filter to protect against sub-micron contaminants as well as odors. Dual Techno valves facilitate breathing, ensuring that the increased resistance offered by the two layers of filtration does not adversely affect wearer comfort.
The X-TREME™ mask Sports features sport-grade Neoprene construction to provide protection for face and neck regions during extreme atmospheric conditions and sub-zero temperatures, as well as filtration to protect against high pollution levels, and Powa™ exhalation valves to prevent fogging of eyewear and moisture buildup within the mask. Simple, no-fuss adjustable Velcro straps make it easy to secure the mask for optimal comfort and performance.
The X-TREME™ mask Urban features sport-grade Neoprene construction to provide protection for face and neck regions during extreme atmospheric conditions and sub-zero temperatures, as well as filtration to protect against high pollution levels. Simple, no-fuss adjustable Velcro straps make it easy to secure the mask for optimal comfort and performance.
