We’ve spent months searching for a high-quality respirator face mask (not a surgical mask which offers the wearer very little protection against airborne viruses.) We have now managed to procure stock of the Respiratory BioMask, a fully certified FFP1 respirator with multi-layer filtration that blocks airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. An HSE study has shown that surgical masks provide a six-fold reduction in exposure to aerosolised influenza virus. The same study showed that a well-fitted respirator can provide at least a 47-fold reduction in exposure.
- Stringent certifications
- Surpasses international standards for performance
- Flexible, comfortable and non-irritating with mouldable nose clip
- Snug fit for 360° airborne protection
- Made of 100% virgin materials
- Multi-layer, non-woven construction with PTFE membrane
- 3-year shelf-life while sealed in bag
- Single use, one-size mask
- Will remain effective for 8-10 hours. If used intermittently for short periods over several days, care should be taken to avoid contamination when removing and re-fitting the mask. Wash hands after each use
- Available in packs of 5
“Our findings show that surgical masks provide around a 6-fold reduction in exposure. Live viruses could be detected in the air behind all surgical masks. By contrast, properly fitted respirators could provide at least a 100-fold reduction”

A vast improvement on cheap face masks and surgical masks.
This EN149-certified BioMask protects you from airborne contaminants and filters out particles, down to 0.3μ (microns)
Masks and Respirators: What you need to know
Fact #1: Washable facemasks may look great but offer very little filtration or protection. Particles can pass through easily, those around you are poorly protected if you cough or sneeze, and airborne contaminants are hardly filtered at all as you breathe in.
Fact #2: According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), surgical masks offer a six-fold reduction in exposure to airborne contaminants and are a step-up in terms of protection for the wearer and the community. This is entry-level PPE.
Fact #3: Filtration Face Piece (FFP) masks are respirators. A well fitted respirator creates a seal around the face and nose which inhibits inward leakage of contaminants. HSE studies show that respirators provide improved protection, with a significant reduction in exposure compared to surgical masks.
Fact #4: All respirators need to comply with EU standard EN149:2001 + A1:2009 for PPE, but they fall into three classes according to their effectiveness in filtering particles and reducing exposure. The WHO rates FFP2 and FFP3 respirators as being suitable for healthcare professionals who are in direct contact with Covid-19 patients and recommends that these masks be reserved for healthcare workers.
Fact #5: The BioMask Respirator has been tested and passed as compliant with the European Standard EN149:2001 and is classified as an FFP1 respirator mask. Published HSE studies show that the protection afforded by FFP1 respirators like the BioMask Respirator is over 7 times more effective in filtering contaminants than a surgical mask.
Fact #6: No mask or respirator can offer 100% protection against Covid-19. Every FFP respirator is intended to be used with other PPE supplies as part of a package of safety measures which include social distancing, frequent hand washing and the use of disinfectants.
The Expert Technology/SAIPOL BioMask Respirator
Face masks that are made of fabric come in all sorts of colourful variations. Our politicians seem to favour black, but there is an endless variety of colours and designs now available. All of these fabric face coverings satisfy the requirements of shops, surgeries, public transport, and other settings where social distancing may be difficult. The primary purpose of these masks is to reduce the spread of the virus by limiting the wearer’s ability to infect others. However, fabric face masks do very little to protect the wearer from infection as inward penetration by small aerosolised particles can be high.
All certified FFP1 respirators have been subject to leakage tests conducted by EU notified bodies or laboratories. These tests measure total inward penetration of the filter material. To achieve a pass, FFP1 respirators have to meet a low inward penetration threshold. This explains why such masks are able to offer the user a higher level of personal protection by comparison with simple fabric face coverings.
