WHICH CE MARKING (APPROVAL AND TEST CRITERIA) IS THE ALPHAMASK® SUBJECT TO?
The ALPHAMASK® is an FMP2 mask and is certified according to the strict European test standards.
Due to the advantages of the exchangeable filters and their reusability, the ALPHAMASK® is classified as a multi-part half mask and is not subject to the test standard for one-piece disposable FFP2 half masks (EN 149).
The multi-part structure of the ALPHAMASK® described (mask body + exchangeable filters) requires more complex test processes according to FMP2 (EN 1827:1999 + A1:2009). These test criteria are based on the well-known FFP2 test and feature a large number of additional tests.
· Fit and tightness of the mask to the face
· Tight fit of the replaceable filters
· Breathing resistance and filter performance.
· Unrestricted field of vision
The ALPHAMASK® thus offers advantages over disposable FFP2 masks.
Only highly efficient FFP2 filter media from a renowned Austrian and European manufacturer are used and installed in the ALPHAMASK® filter body.
