Dentec Safety Specialists has announced a new material in respiratory protection. The company’s Comfort Air full face masks are made with a unique material called special compression silicone.
“This advanced material is not only softer for greater comfort, but it also provides a better fit,” says Claudio Dente, resident of Dentec Safety Specialists in Newmarket, Ont.
This new material means there are no compromises on price to get silicone quality. Now a worker who has to wear a full face mask for long periods can be more productive without asking their employers for a more expensive mask, says Dentec.
The universal fit design allows employers to have one size to fit most. The five-point harness provides an even, comfortable fit with no slippage. It has an anti-fog hard coated lens and an optional prescription lens insert is also available. The inner mask prevents CO2 build up and the quick release shielded buckles make removal easier.
The extra large inhalation valves decrease breathing resistance when inhaling, increasing comfort and productivity. The unique metal speech diaphragm enables high quality communication. The space plenum, built into every cartridge and filter retainer, allows the wearer to use up the cartridge more completely (to the outside edges) so that the cartridges last a lot longer. This also reduces filter loading and breathing resistance, the company says.
The Comfort Air full face masks are available in two materials, silicone and neoprene. Comfort-Air respirator products are available in air purifying half mask and full face masks with cartridges, half and full face masks air supplied.
