Type I Mask: bacteria filtering effectiveness > 95%. (Rating: Good).
European Standard EN 14683
These masks provide two-way protection and therefore commonly used in environments where there is a risk of toxic or infectious particles being transferred to or from the wearer from people and physical objects in the vicinity.
However, the Type I mask is not guranteed to protect from inhaling the very small particles suspended in the air that potentially carry the coronavirus, therefore should only be used in environments where there is low risk. For higher risk environments, please see our Type IIR Mask.
