The FFP respirators and Type IIR surgical facemasks are part of a healthcare system’s recommended PPE while battling the COVID-19 virus. While FFP respirators are required during Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGP) in Intensive Care Units (ICU), Intensive Therapy Units (ITU) and High Dependency Units (HDU) handling COVID-19 patients, the Type IIR surgical face masks are required for all other areas. As ordinary respirator and mask prices continue to skyrocket, Hardshell has developed a filtration solution (HS- FFP/IIR) that can meet the current FFP2/3 and Type IIR standards and offers improved breathability.
As a vertically integrated manufacturer, the high-quality non-woven fabric used for filtration is produced in-house and is subjected to the most stringent tests and qualifications. Manufactured directly from raw polymers, our filtration fabric is directly embedded into the surgical masks without additional risks from shipping and handling.
