Protect against airborne diseases and viral outbreaks with medical grade surgical face masks in Australia and New Zealand, designed to suppress cross-contamination and transmission of viral outbreaks.
3 things to consider when choosing a face mask for your health and safety:
International guidelines: Surgical face masks are developed and tested to ensure that they provide a certain level of protection. These masks are also labeled with the health standards and protection levels that they meet. While N95 respirators are the international standard face masks for healthcare professionals, Level 2 ASTM face masks offer the best combination of performance and protection while maintaining breathability for most individuals.
Beware of counterfeits: Currently, a large percentage of surgical face masks and N95 masks on the market are counterfeits that do not meet international safety standards for surgical face masks. Always ensure that your face mask is from a reputable brand, that the protection standards are clearly stated, and that all labels and seals are intact.
Considerations for children: Always consult a doctor before using surgical face masks on children, especially if your child has a heart or lung condition or is having trouble breathing even after switching to a regular disposable face mask.
Surgical face masks and respirators should only be placed on children over the age of two and should be made to fit comfortably over their nose and under their chin while still allowing them to see clearly. Adult masks can often be adjusted to achieve this fit.
