This version of the RespiPro VK is on offer because it has been replaced by a new version that features upgraded ear loops/headbands. Once stock of this model has sold out, it will no longer be available.
The combination of two unique features: filtration for pathogens and the ability to kill them, makes the RespiPro® VK ideal PPE for infection control purposes in professional and every day situations. Manufactured in Europe, the reusable RespiPro® VK can dramatically reduce turnover of masks, which also lowers costs and the environmental impact of daily mask use.
Thanks to a patented accelerated copper technology that destroys viruses and bacteria, the RespiPro® VK can be used repeatedly over a 30 hour period provided it still fits perfectly and shows no signs of wear. The usage time of 30 hours can be split over multiple uses: you could wear the mask for 6 hours a day Mon-Fri without the risk of viral cross contamination in the filter. Diligent mask handling is still required at all times.
Independent lab testing has proven that no copper particles are released during mask use - the patented copper technology is not a coating, but rather integrated into the mask material itself.
Most FFP2/FFP3 masks (those considered effective at protecting the wearer from viral transmission) can lose up to 60% filtration ability after 30mins use due to humidity from the wearers breath. The nanofibre filter in every RESPILON® respirator is not effected by humidity and filtration can actually get more efficient the longer the mask is used (from a 99% starting point).
The RespiPro® range of respirators has an advanced "C-shape" 3D design combined with the flexibility and lighter weight of nanofibre. The shape conforms to the contours of the face to provide a protective seal and easy comfort. This offers an advantage over other more rigid respirators in terms of achieving a good face fit. In addition, the variable sizes (M&L) and use of the optional clip to turn the loops into headstraps means that virtually any adult should be able to achieve a great fit with the RespiPro® VK.
Available in two adult sizes:
Whether you use the ear loops alone or secure the mask using the straps around the back of your head comes down to your individual face fit and comfort. This newly developed adaptability ensures a secure face-fit for everyone.
If using the RespiPro® VK casually then the ear loops may be more convenient and if the fit is good you will be protected. If you are a professional that needs the mask to remain fully in place for a long period whilst working without having to touch it, securing the soft straps around your head with the clip may offer the best solution.
