Use of barrier masks

As part of personal protective equipment, barrier masks are filtering devices which cover the nose, mouth and chin. They are designed to protect the user against the spread of the coronavirus. Wearing a barrier mask helps to limit/reduce the risks of contamination. Indeed, each barrier mask must pass the filtration capacity and breathability test before obtaining sales authorization.

In addition, you must wear your mask for better protection. Before handling the mask, you must wash your hands.

It is necessary to adjust your mask as best as possible for stability and comfort.

Barrier masks must be added to social safety distances and essential barrier gestures. These masks are offered to the general public, knowing that FFP1, FFP2, FFP3 masks and surgical masks are reserved for health personnel and the medical profession.

Two new categories of masks for non-sanitary use have emerged thanks to the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM), and ANSES to prevent droplet projections.

These masks are intended for workers in positions or carrying out a mission in regular contact with the public.

Category 2: collective masks to protect an entire group wearing these masks.

These masks are intended for personnel who have occasional contact with other individuals.

Made mainly from cotton, barrier masks are designed to be both washable and reusable, offering an ecological and economical solution for individual protection. Their design aims to combine comfort and efficiency, allowing prolonged use without discomfort, which makes them particularly suitable for everyday use.

The technical specifications and documents accompanying each barrier mask provide a detailed note on their effectiveness, their type of filtration, and instructions for use. This information is crucial to ensure users understand how and when to use their masks for maximum protection.
