Respiratory protection. With Certainty.

As an employer, you are required to provide respiratory protection when there is the possibility that employees can get exposed to harmful gases, vapours, mists or dusts. These hazards can affect the health of the employee. Even with low exposures, serious harmful consequences can develop over time for the employees. That is precisely why the industry puts great value on reliable respiratory protection - as it can be indispensable for many jobs.

Fine dust masks, dust masks etc.: particle-filtering masks from the expert

Note: Particle filters may only be used against particulate pollutants, but never against gases! If gases and particles occur simultaneously, combination filters should be used.

Folding mask

Folding mask

Protection class FFP1

Protects against non-toxic and non-fibrogenic particles, dusts and aerosols up to 4 times the limit value.

Cage mask

Cage mask

Protection class FFP2

Protects against harmful or low-toxic particles, dusts, solid and liquid aerosols, fog and smoke up to 10 times the limit value.

Comfort mask

Comfort mask

Protection class FFP3

Protects against harmful/toxic dusts, fog, smoke, solid and liquid aerosols as well as carcinogenic substances, radioactive substances, enzymes and microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, fungi) up to 30 times the limit value.

 

Gas filter masks

Gas filters are used either in half masks or in full-face masks. These filters are only for use against gases and vapours, but never against particles!

Half mask

Half masks

Half masks are often used in chemical and lacquer processing companies, disposal and refurbishment companies, woodworking and processing companies as well as floor levellers, plastics processing companies, motor vehicle and other workshops (each with the appropriate filters).

Full-face mask

Full-face masks

Used in all areas of industry, the energy industry, waste management and the craft sector. Wherever vapours, solvents and gases occur and effective respiratory protection and face protection are needed.

BAgainst inorganic gases and fumesGrey
EAgainst sulphur dioxide, hydrogen chloride and other acid gasesYellow
KAgainst ammonia and organic ammonia derivativesGreen
HGAgainst mercury fumesRed
PAgainst particlesWhite

Always observe the service life of the respirators!

The duration of use of respiratory filters depends on the concentration of contaminants and the type of activity that is performed. In the case of heavy physical exertion, the air volume throughput is greater and thus a faster consumption is to be expected. The end of the service life of gas filters can be recognized by the appearance of smell or taste of the respective substances. Since one has to rely on this perception, standard filter devices must not be used against gases that are not smelling or tasting (for example, carbon monoxide). If the respiratory resistance increases greatly when using particle filters, the filter material is saturated and a new filter should be used. Particulate-filtering half masks against radioactive substances or airborne biological agents are for single use.

Supply concepts for occupational safety products

Just as important as the selection of suitable protective equipment is the availability of the items. Together with you, we develop the best possible logistics solution for the supply of occupational safety products according to your individual needs

  • centrally in the material warehouse
  • centrally at a defined location in production
  • decentralized in every area of production with the required articles (e.g. directly in the welding shop or in pre-assembly, etc.)
Occupational safety machine

Retrieval of health and safety articles made easy!

Dispensers are particularly suitable for the individual removal of safety items, which your employees can easily withdraw when required by pincode or similar.

Shelf system Orsy

Demand-oriented storage of health and safety articles

We offer different shelving components that can be combined individually to create a shelf that suits your needs.
