Breathing protection in practice
This section includes everything you need to know and consider for the practical application of respirators. For example:
- Knowledge of how particle filtering face masks work is key for being able to use them reliably and without any safety risk. We clearly explain the principle of electrostatic build-up as well as the consequences, which include a reduction in the product life of the mask.
- Choosing the right respirator for the intended application is essential for ensuring the wearer is afforded reliable protection. We have created an overview to help you find the perfect solution. In cases of uncertainty, please consult your respective contact at your professional association or the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).
- Even the best mask can only offer limited protection if the instructions for the right fit and use are not observed. In this section, we explain the fit test and how this will ensure your mask is correctly adjusted to fit your face perfectly.
