The National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) prohibits the marketing of N95 respirators (masks) to children. The respirator offered on this site fits a tremendous range of adult faces and is considered a one-size-fits-most.
Please take into account these two factors when deciding how many respirators you need.
Disposable N95 respirators (masks) cannot be effectively cleaned or disinfected; therefore masks must be discarded after each use. This includes taking it off to eat or drink. Reuse may compromise the integrity of the mask and potentially expose the user to pathogens in the filter material.
The other factor to take into consideration is that supplies will likely be limited in the event of heightened flu activity. All products on the site are currently in stock. If they go out-of-stock, details will be provided next to product listing.
There is no time rating given by NIOSH, the regulating government body for N95 respirators. Note respirators must be discarded immediately after usage. This includes taking it off to eat or drink. Reuse may compromise the integrity of the mask and potentially expose the user to pathogens in the filter material.
OSHA regulation 1910.134 states that fit testing of respirators (masks) is required prior to use in order to determine if proper fit is attainable. Individual facial features, including facial hair, may prevent proper fit. Qualitative Bitrex™ Respirator Fit Test Kits for OSHA compliance are made available on our product menu. Comprehensive step-by-step instructions are included. Each test kit is good for approximately 50 individuals.
