Please note, face masks do not protect you from COVID-19 but may prevent you spreading it. For full government guidance please see this link. 

For every mask you purchase, Maask will donate two masks to a hospital/care home in need. 

These sustainable masks are hand stitched from fabric created out of recycled ocean plastic. They have an internal pocket for a disposable protection filter which is PM 2.5 grade. This is similar to FFP1 (but is not to be confused with N95/KN95 or FFP2/FFP3 which are used in medical/surgical settings).

Maask have designed our reusable, recycled face masks to create a barrier from particles generated by the wearer (spit, mucous) and a barrier for the wearer from the immediate environment they are in. As such, they can be used as barrier protection for a care giver and for a someone who is ill to help them prevent passing on illnesses*.

N.B. hese are not surgical grade masks and should not be used as such. These masks are meant to provide a high level of protection from the transmission of water droplets and other airborne irritants. They are suitable for the general public using them for added protection in public settings such as crowded city centres, public transport, airports, shops and parks/beaches/beauty spots etc.   

What are PM 2.5 Filters?

PM 2.5 filters are a special type of high-purity polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane filter designed to capture micro-particulates which are present in the air. They are similar in grade to an FFP2 mask which can help users protect themselves from airborne irritants and microbial matter.

PM 2.5 filters protect against:

  • Industrial pollution
  • Bacteria
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Vehicle emissions

Will a face mask with a PM2.5 filter protect against COVID-19?

There is a lot of ongoing study in this area at present and the worlds authorities do not have a definite answer at present. Being a socially responsible corporation, Maask do not think it is fair to sell our face masks off the back of fear from this coronavirus.

However, there is a considerable body of research that suggests wearing a mask with a micro-filter in confined public settings (gym, shopping, public transport etc.) greatly reduces the risks of inhaling bacteria. 

Worldwide, many senior health officials from countries like China, Italy and the USA agree and have begun advising all citizens to wear a face mask when in public settings during the outbreak of COVID-19. 

*Please note that although our masks are an effective barrier when used correctly. We cannot guarantee that they will stop the spread of infection of illnesses between individuals as environmental factors play a large part in disease/virus transmission.
