Now the whole world remem­bered about pro­tec­tive masks. But thin med­ical prod­ucts, accord­ing to the rec­om­men­da­tions, need to be changed every 2–3 hours. Where­as res­pi­ra­tors are more reli­able pro­tec­tion against virus­es. They are stronger, more com­fort­able and can be worn much longer. KP talks about the best virus res­pi­ra­tors that you can buy in Rus­sia.

Rating of the top 10 best virus respirators

1. SAFETY

safe­ty.

High-qual­i­ty res­pi­ra­tor against virus­es, which con­sists of six lay­ers. It will pro­tect the res­pi­ra­to­ry organs not only from infec­tions, but from dust and sus­pend­ed par­ti­cles. Equipped with a car­bon fil­ter. Of course, it does not pro­tect against dis­eases. This part is more for decon­t­a­m­i­na­tion of tox­ic aerosol par­ti­cles. One of the lay­ers of the res­pi­ra­tor is melt­baun. This is a rel­a­tive­ly new mate­r­i­al that is used in med­ical masks. It has high bar­ri­er prop­er­ties — that is, it inhibits the pen­e­tra­tion of dan­ger­ous par­ti­cles from the out­side into the res­pi­ra­to­ry sys­tem to the max­i­mum. The man­u­fac­tur­er also boasts that ultra­son­ic weld­ing was used in the man­u­fac­ture. That is, the com­po­nents of the mask were held togeth­er not with glue or by heat­ing, but by means of pow­er­ful ultra­sound. The tech­nol­o­gy, by the way, is not so new, but it is still rare in the light indus­try.

2. M Aura 9332+

3M Aura 9332+. Pho­to: 3M

This res­pi­ra­tor guar­an­tees max­i­mum pro­tec­tion. Only devices with replace­able fil­ters will be more pow­er­ful, but you won’t wear these in every­day life because of their mas­sive­ness. This res­pi­ra­tor mod­el meets the FFP3 pro­tec­tion class. Accord­ing to the char­ac­ter­is­tics, they pro­vide fil­tra­tion of 99% of sol­id and liq­uid par­ti­cles. The design is such that the mask fits secure­ly to the face. More­over, this is a durable mod­el, it is dif­fi­cult to crush it, which means dam­ag­ing its pro­tec­tive prop­er­ties. The man­u­fac­tur­er says that he used high-tech fil­ter mate­r­i­al for it. With all this, the prod­uct meets low breath­ing resis­tance, which is made for the com­fort of the wear­er. There is an exha­la­tion valve on the front. It is designed in such a way that the air rush­es down. This helps wick away mois­ture. Plus, spec­ta­cle wear­ers will appre­ci­ate that the lens­es won’t fog up. For this, by the way, a spe­cial shape of the upper part is made — for bet­ter com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with lens­es.

3. STAYER 11110–3

STAYER 11110–3 1 pc. Pho­to: STAYER

Anoth­er high-class res­pi­ra­tor against virus­es and more. Strict­ly speak­ing, it was devel­oped for use in fac­to­ries to reduce the impact of harm­ful sub­stances on the res­pi­ra­to­ry organs of work­ers. But it will also per­form the func­tion of pro­tect­ing against virus­es. The mask is equipped with a valve already famil­iar to us. The hole removes exhaled air from the mask so that heat and mois­ture do not accu­mu­late inside — a favor­able envi­ron­ment for bac­te­ria. Pay atten­tion to the shape of the prod­uct. It is not bulky, which is con­ve­nient. Pro­tec­tion class, as in the pre­vi­ous mod­el FFP3. Sep­a­rate­ly, we note the flex­i­ble strap adjust­ment sys­tem. Very often, virus res­pi­ra­tors are not equipped with such a sys­tem and put a lot of pres­sure on the head.

4. 3M 8122

3M 8122. Pho­to: 3M

Once again, a mod­el from the leg­endary Amer­i­can com­pa­ny appears in the top of the best res­pi­ra­tors. This time the sec­ond class of pro­tec­tion. FFP2 guar­an­tees 94% sol­id and liq­uid par­ti­cle fil­tra­tion. Among the fea­tures of the bowl-shaped mask. This is tight to the face. The design is resis­tant to mechan­i­cal stress. Inside there is plen­ty of space for any face size. There is an elas­tic nose clip, which again works for fix­a­tion. Like the old­er mod­el, the design is made in such a way as to ensure the removal of exhaled air flows from the eyes. Impor­tant for peo­ple who wear a res­pi­ra­tor with gog­gles.

5. DEXX 11101

DEXX 11101. Pho­to: DEXX

Anoth­er res­pi­ra­tor that was not devel­oped to pro­tect against virus­es, but for indus­tri­al use. How­ev­er, it can also be used for domes­tic pur­pos­es. The man­u­fac­tur­er claims that the mask meets the first class of pro­tec­tion. This is the low­est degree of pro­tec­tion, which does not detract from the mer­its. With FFP1, you can be in con­di­tions up to four times the max­i­mum per­mis­si­ble con­cen­tra­tion of harm­ful impu­ri­ties. The res­pi­ra­tor blocks up to 80% of sol­id and liq­uid sub­stances that can enter the body through the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract. It does not pro­tect against tox­ic sub­stances, but this does not mat­ter for our tasks. The res­pi­ra­tor itself is flat. How­ev­er, it is equipped with a notch for the nose, which ulti­mate­ly con­tributes to a snug fit to the face. The design is such that the mask can be eas­i­ly fold­ed and put away.

6. 3M 8112

3M 8112. Pho­to: 3M

Among ana­logues from the same man­u­fac­tur­er, this res­pi­ra­tor has the low­est pro­tec­tion class. But once again, the FFP mark­ing is pri­mar­i­ly designed for pro­fes­sion­al work­ers. As a pro­tec­tion against virus­es for the lay­man in life, this degree of pro­tec­tion is also suit­able. The res­pi­ra­tor is made in the form of a bowl. Again, there is an exha­la­tion valve, with low breath­ing resis­tance. So that hot air does not cause damp dis­com­fort. forms. The clip in the nose area helps to keep the fil­ter half mask secure­ly on the face. The tech­ni­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion states that the res­pi­ra­tor can with­stand up to five work shifts. Based on the cal­cu­la­tion that one lasts an aver­age of 7–8 hours, then con­sid­er how durable the mask is in domes­tic use.

7. ZUBR Master 11165

ZUBR Mas­ter 11165. Pho­to: ZUBR

The half mask pro­tects the res­pi­ra­to­ry organs from virus­es, dust and aerosols. It is used pri­mar­i­ly in the con­struc­tion indus­try, in pro­duc­tion and in the agri­cul­tur­al sec­tor. A mul­ti­lay­er mask is what we need in our case. The design folds up for easy stor­age. A nose clip is inte­grat­ed into the res­pi­ra­tor, due to which the pro­tec­tive equip­ment fits snug­ly. Pay atten­tion to the fas­ten­ers to which the rib­bons are sewn. They are made very high qual­i­ty: they adhere to the skin of the face. Of course, it is not air­tight, but still the weak point of many mod­els was tak­en into account here. The res­pi­ra­tor is made of polypropy­lene — the most pop­u­lar mate­r­i­al for such prod­ucts. Among the short­com­ings can be not­ed the lack of an exha­la­tion valve. There­fore, con­den­sa­tion will accu­mu­late inside, which ulti­mate­ly reduces the ser­vice life and makes the wear less com­fort­able.

8. Masker’s NF

Masker’s NF. Pho­to: Masker’s

Anatom­i­cal­ly shaped black mask. There is also a nasal retain­er — all for the con­ve­nience of the wear­er. Devel­oped with Japan­ese tech­nol­o­gy. The mod­el was equipped with an adjustable tem­ple. The straps can be short­ened to fit the virus res­pi­ra­tor more close­ly to the face. At the bot­tom there is an open­ing for exha­la­tion. It looks like a fil­ter, but in fact it does not have such prop­er­ties. But it blows out more air. This means that the mask will not quick­ly get wet from con­den­sa­tion. The man­u­fac­tur­er claims that the Masker’s NF res­pi­ra­tor can be used for up to eight hours. The mod­el is dis­pos­able, after which it must be dis­posed of. Of course, you can con­tin­ue to wear it fur­ther, but doc­tors unan­i­mous­ly declare that such a mask can­not pro­vide full pro­tec­tion.

Main characteristics

9 Barrier Reef

Bar­ri­er reef. Pho­to: Bar­ri­er Reef

The design of this mod­el is iden­ti­cal to the pre­vi­ous one. There is an ABS valve to remove exhaled air, the same anatom­i­cal shape and the abil­i­ty to main­tain effi­cien­cy up to eight hours. The Japan­ese flag flaunts on the pack­ag­ing, which means that the virus res­pi­ra­tor was devel­oped in the Land of the Ris­ing Sun. The mod­el also con­sists of three lay­ers. It is made from spun­bond. This fab­ric is made from poly­mers. Select those that have the best qual­i­ties of pro­tec­tion against virus­es. They cer­tain­ly don’t kill bac­te­ria. But they become an effec­tive bar­ri­er to infec­tion in the body. What is the dif­fer­ence between this mod­el and the pre­vi­ous one? In fact, only in col­or and con­fig­u­ra­tion — in one pack­age there are three white masks. In terms of mon­ey, it works out bet­ter.

Main characteristics

Type of mask pro­ce­dur­al

Pros and cons

There are com­plaints about the vaunt­ed anatom­i­cal shape of the prod­uct: not suit­able for every­one

10. Saraya

Saraya. Pho­to: Saraya

A sim­ple and afford­able mod­el. Made in Japan. There are 30 pieces in a pack. The mask con­sists of three lay­ers. It is impor­tant to remem­ber that such a sim­ple res­pi­ra­tor to pro­tect against virus­es, it is impor­tant to change as often as pos­si­ble. The two-hour rule for them should be strict­ly observed. Like oth­er sim­i­lar prod­ucts, it is made of hypoal­ler­genic spun­bond mate­r­i­al. The man­u­fac­tur­er can­not boast of the anatom­i­cal shape of the prod­uct. This is a clas­sic mask, putting on which, gaps remain on the cheeks. This, of course, reduces its pro­tec­tive prop­er­ties. On the front part there is a notch for the nose, so that the res­pi­ra­tor fits bet­ter. The size of the entire prod­uct is 175 x 95 mm.

How to choose a virus respirator

“We” asked Can­di­date of Med­ical Sci­ences Andrey Kon­drakhin on how to choose the best virus res­pi­ra­tor in 2021. Here are some tips from an expert.

Remember to change your mask regularly

If we talk about masks and res­pi­ra­tors, then you need to under­stand that they are not 100% safe from infec­tion. The fact is that the diam­e­ter of viral par­ti­cles is about 125 nm or 0.125 microns. Res­pi­ra­tors and masks should be changed every 2–3 hours.

Don’t get confused by the standards

There are three types of res­pi­ra­tor masks on the mar­ket: FFP1, FFP2, FFP3 for med­ical use. In the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion, all types of these res­pi­ra­tors can be suit­able for use. Although ear­li­er they were more often used in the focus of tuber­cu­lo­sis. There are also N95 res­pi­ra­tors — the Amer­i­can stan­dard. They can be rec­om­mend­ed instead of FFP2 as an alter­na­tive.

Wear it right

The main thing is that the res­pi­ra­tor fits very tight­ly to the face. The res­pi­ra­tor is not suit­able for peo­ple with a beard and mus­tache, because. they inter­fere with a snug fit to the skin, which reduces effec­tive­ness. You can con­trol your­self with its cor­rect use in the fol­low­ing way. If you put it on and exhale strong­ly, you should feel air resis­tance against the res­pi­ra­tor. If this does not hap­pen and the air comes out unhin­dered, it means that it does not sit well.

Worst case, you can save

In com­par­a­tive stud­ies com­pared to masks, res­pi­ra­tors have not been shown to per­form much bet­ter as a bar­ri­er to virus infec­tion. How­ev­er, com­pared to masks, res­pi­ra­tors are much more expen­sive.
