N95 Respirators

Updated: Sep 13, 2020

The N95 respirator is a type of personal protective equipment device that is designed to fit very close to the face and provides efficient filtration of particles in the air.

The “N95” indicator means that when the mask is put under careful testing, the respirator will block at least 95 percent of small particles (0.3 micron). If the N95 mask is fitted correctly, the filtration capability exceeds that of regular face masks.

It is important to note; however, that even an N95 respirator mask does not completely eradicate the risk of illness or death.
