"We were using another disposable mask but, working with ESAB and supplier Alpha Solway, we decided to change to Filtair masks for quality and cost control reasons," explains Graeme Stevenson, health and safety officer at the plant.
Now only ESAB Filtair masks are used at the Ferguson fabrication works.
The Filtair Flat and Filtair Pro ranges meet the requirements of EN 149:2001 and are CE marked in accordance with the requirements of European Directive 89/686/EEC. Filtair Flat and Pro have been developed to improve the comfort of disposable respirators whilst maintaining an excellent face fit. Using the latest filtering technology and low profile valves, breathing resistance is reduced. Colour coding of the range makes identification simple.
Filtair's outer mesh shell supports the filter media, maintains shape and prevents collapse on to face. Use of the latest filter technology keeps breathing resistance low. A nose clip free, preformed nose bridge provides a comfortable fit. The wide, continuous loop head strap distributes the tension and avoids tight spots.
The Filtair adjustable clipped head strap ensures a good face fit and allows the respirator to drop away from the face when not in use.
