Could have used one of these when bringing down the decorations from the attic
Can’t moan for the price, but the ones with valves are much better albeit costing more.

Tommy Walsh as well!
Is this to protect you from the magic Flamedeer dust? Lol
This will offer very little protection to the wearer.... Its an (FF)P1 mask so has an assigned protection factor (APF) of 4.

In a nutshell, take the airborne concentration of dust particles and divide this by four, this is the quantity of dust that the wearer will inhale... P2 = APF 10, P3 = APF 20
What would you recommend for loft insulation?
FFP2 is for plasterboard, so FFP1 would be fine for loft insulation right?
It should say on your packaging what level is needed. To be honest, I used a big standard pack of 20 from £land and doubled up for loft insulation.
For plasterboard the FFP2 did make a difference!

Look on the pack of loft insulation - there should be info on what PPE you should wear, including what grade of mask. Personally, I wouldn't use these: they will be OK for the fibres but won't stop fine dust and I would definitely not use them for sanding jobs, contrary to the description.

The Tommy Walsh ones are a much better buy, IMHO. Please remember also that these are single use masks so should be discarded once worn, eg if you take a break. If you have any face fuzz the protection will also be compromised, especially if you have a beard.

It will depend a lot on whether you are removing or laying down on old insulation. If laying new from scratch P1 may be enough but if you are removing or laying on top of old insulation it is likely that you will disturb much finer particles that P1 won't filter.
