Frequently Asked Questions

01. What are the safety standards for the Force 8 Half mask?

The JSP face piece conforms to the EN 140 & the associated filter performance conforms to EN 14387:2004 & EN 143:200.

02. What is the weight of the Force 8 Half Mask Respirator?

The facepiece is very light weighing only 82g without filters and between 140-390g depending on the filter chosen.

03. How do you correctly put on the Force 8 Mask?

  • Cusp the respirator & place over the nose and mouth area and pull the strap harness over the crown of your head.
  • Take the bottom straps and hook together behind the neck.
  • Tighten the top straps by pulling the ends to achieve a comfortable and secure fit.
  • Tighten bottom straps using front or rear buckle straps.
  • •Perform a positive/negative pressure fit test.

04. How do you clean & maintain the JSP Force 8 Mask?

  • It is recommended to clean your mask after each use. If the filter is to be reused do not remove from the face piece & clean with a cloth and warm soapy water. Dry with a clean cloth.
  • If the filters are removed clean the face piece using a cloth & weak detergent & air dry.
  • Always check the respirator components prior to use especially the exhalation valves. If damaged or showing signs of deterioration replace.

05. What factors could affect the seal of my JSP Respirator?

  • A good seal can only be achieved if the mask has an uninterrupted connection with the face.
  • Factors that could affect this include
    • Facial hair, wearers must be clean shaven
    • Eyewear & head PPE.
    • Jewellery & make up.

06. Can I wear the Force 8 Half Mask with Facial Hair?

  • The simple answer is no, all face masks can only create a good seal with clean shaven faces.
  • Quantitative tests have been undertaken with users that had beards, stubble and clean shaven. People with beards had minimal levels of protection, people with stubble had a higher level of protection but not sufficient enough to pass a face fit test. Only the clean shaven example achieved the correct face seal to provide protection. If personnel have beards we have a selection of masks that can be used for personnel with beards.

Frequently Asked Questions

Protective masks, respiratory equipment (RPE) is divided into 2 main areas: (A) Filtering face Pieces (FFP) & (B) Air Supplied Equipment.

Additional information can be found within each category section:

01: What's the difference between FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 Disposable masks?

The European safety standard EN149: 2001 + A1: 2009 for disposable protective masks includes performance tests in filter penetration; extended exposure test; flammability; breathing resistance and total inward leakage. Masks that meet this standard are classified according to their filtering efficiency & protection as FFP1, FFP2, FFP3.

FFP1 (80% Filter efficiency) Protection from non‐toxic contaminants in concentrations up to 4 x OEL or 4 x APF. Particles filtered are larger than 5 microns Dust, Fumes, Aqueous mists, Oils based mists.

FFP2(94% Filter efficiency) Protection from low to average toxicity contaminants in concentrations up to 12 x OEL or 10 x APF . Particle size filtration 2-5 microns - Fine dust, Aqueous / Oil-based mists.

FFP3 (99% Filter efficiency) Protection from toxicity contaminants in concentrations up to 50 x OEL or 20 x APF. Particles size less than 2 microns - Very fine dust, Fibres, Aqueous/ Oil-based mists.

Dolomite test for clogging signifies a mask with low breathing resistance in very dusty environments.

02: What are the safety standards for Reusable Half Masks?

Half mask respirators (Reusable masks) are required to meet the European standards EN140, EN141, 143 and EN371.

The European standard - EN140 covers the technical specifications for half masks. A half mask is defined as covering the nose, mouth & chin.

EN141 European standard -Gas filters for protection against specified gases and vapours or combined filters for protection against solids and/or liquid particles & specified gases and vapours.

Filters are classified as Class 1, Class 2 & Class 3 .

EN143 European standard - Filters for protection against particulates. These are classified according to their filtering efficiency P1, P2 & P3. P3 filters provide the highest level of filtration.

EN371 European standard - AX filters.

P1 (80% Filter efficiency) Protection from non‐toxic contaminants in concentrations up to 4 x OEL or 4 x APF. Particles larger than 5 microns Dusts, Fumes, Aqueous mists, Oils based mists.

P2(94% Filter efficiency) Protection from low to average toxicity contaminants in concentrations up to 12 x OEL or 10 x APF . Particle size filtration 2-5 microns - Fine dust, Aqueous / Oil-based mists.

P3(99% Filter efficiency) Protection from toxicity contaminants in concentrations up to 50 x OEL or 20 x APF. Particles size less than 2 microns - Very fine dust, Fibres, Aqueous/ Oil-based mists.

03: What are the safety standards for Full Face Masks?

EN136 European standard for Full Face masks. Negative pressure, powered or supplied air systems.

Full face masks are classified as:

Class 1 - Light Duty & Maintenance

Class 2 – General Duty & Maintenance

Class 3 – Heavy Duty – Fire Service

Full face masks when used with particulate filters provide the following APF protection levels. P2 filter APF 10 & P3 filter APF 40 when used with a full face mask.

04: What are the different types of powered air respirators?

The European safety standards for powered air respirators are the EN146 & EN12941 standard with the powered respirators classified into three protective categories, TH1, TH2 & TH3. (Turbo Hood)

The powered respirator includes hood & powered air unit.

The powered air respirators are a recommended solution as a dust mask for bearded personnel.

TH1P provides an APF protection factor of 10 (APF 10) & TH2P provide an APF protection factor of 20 (APF 20)

05: What is an air-fed respirator?

European standards EN270 & EN1835 incorporates the Helmet/hood (Covers the face) supplied with breathable air from a compressed air unit as well as the respirators operation. The adjustable continuous flow valve must incorporate a low warning device.

Standard EN1835 covers three classes LDH1, LDH2 & LDH3 (LDH=Light Duty Hose). The maximum permissible length of air line (Valve (Regulator) to the Air source (Compressor) is 30 metres EN270) & 10 metres EN1835.
