Half-Mask Respirators

Breathing is important. In fact, you can’t live without it and protecting your lungs will make breathing a lot easier. That’s where half-mask respiratory protection comes in. Respiratory protection is a group of PPE with the sole purpose of providing the user with clear air.

Half-mask respirators are similar to disposable respirators because they cover your nose and mouth, but leave the rest of your face exposed. However, unlike disposable respirators, half-mask respirators can be reused and the filters and cartridges can simply be replaced when needed. Half-mask respirators create a seal around your nose and mouth to prevent particulates from making it into your lungs, but it is important to remember that not all cartridges can filter out all particulates.

When picking out proper respiratory protection there are a few main things to consider.

What hazards are you going to be exposed to? Have you assessed the situation? What level of protection do you need? What are the different types of filters and what do they do? What standards do I need to make sure I’m in compliance with? These questions will ensure that you are following best practices in making your decision when purchasing respiratory protection.
