Cosplay for The Division maybe

I have the JSP version, well worth the money as the filters are nearly that price alone.

Are you my mummy?

This catalogue offer. Used 1 to try and it was good. Will buy a 2 more as I get more than 3 months out of them. I only use when needed then dry out in the warm before sealing in a bag.

Love the Q&A on the product page:

"will this mask make me look like bane for 28 days and keep me protected from batmans sleeping gas ?"

fantastic! i'll keep one in my car in case i need to go to england

Heat. Ordered one to keep in the bathroom. I live with elderly parents.

Just what I need for when my dog keeps farting

what's this 28 day bit all about?

It's rated for 120-150 hours before it needs new filters. Unless you are in a very dusty environment.

Also it will be a dust not smell filter!

Thanks! Just what I needed for the weekend in the loft

Any deals on FFP3? It's the fine particular matter that gets you!

Banned

would suggest to spend £3-£4 more and get a proper 3m mask...

This should be better than the cheap five pack you bought. Those cloth ones are pretty crap.

whats the drying out bit for?

Used before good price.

28 day masks enable companies to get around the regulations on recording the issue of replacement filters. It has no bearing on how long the filters will last. The gas filters on a 28 day mask are integral to the respirator otherwise it defeats the object! Once the filters are saturated the whole mask is thrown away. The filters could last just a few hours or many months depending on what hazard you are protecting yourself from.

The mask that is linked above claims to be a respirator with P2 filters. These will not protect against gases and vapours as claimed. From the image it actually looks like it has A1/P2 filters.

The standard for 28 day masks is EN:405 not EN:140.

Also FFP2 is a disposable mask rating.

Apart from that everything seems correct!

Below is an image of a 28 day mask.

The older I get the more pedantic I seem to be. Now off to Tesco to check their multi-buy offers and correct their pricing mistakes.

I just took it apart, it says SITE A2/P2 On the A2 it says EM 14387:2004. Then underneath A1: 2008.
Then on the white filter it says. Site Pre P2 R. En 143:2000. A1:2006.

I am not sure what all of this means, are they A1 or A2 and what is the difference? Many thanks.

looks nice.
