FFP1 dust masks give the minimum level of protection against non-toxic particulates however this may be perfectly acceptable depending on the airborne hazard. As they are composed of the least amount of filter material they also provide the least breathing resistance and quite often an exhalation valve is not required.

FFP1 dust mask protection examples: brick dust, cellulose, cement, coal dust, gypsum, limestone, Plaster of Paris, pollen, sugar.

Dust masks FFP1 SABS Approved


(only sold in qty's of 20's)


Dust Masks FFP1 are NRCS approved dust masks. Made with special three-ply non-woven cloth material. The adjustable nose piece and inner soft foam. Loaded polypropylene material with low breathing resistance and high filtration and static, to effectively resist normal toxic and tiny micron particles against unpleasant organic acid vapors and dust. Suited for many kinds of dangerous workplaces such as mining, building, grinding, casting, agriculture, electronic, food processing, cement, textile, heavy metal pollution, gardening, glass industry, etc.

Dust Masks FFP1 are designed to protect the wearer against inhaling airborne particulates. Airborne particulates are solids or liquids suspended in breathable air and can be classified as dust, mists, or fume. Inhaling airborne particulates may have an inverse effect on health and, depending on the particulate inhaled, this effect may be irreversible.

There are three main different types of dust masks which are governed each of the different dust mask ratings is a step up giving greater protection.

FFP1 Dust Masks


FFP1 dust masks give the minimum level of protection against non-toxic particulates however this may be perfectly acceptable depending on the airborne hazard. As they are composed of the least amount of filter material they also provide the least breathing resistance and quite often an exhalation valve is not required.

FFP1 dust mask protection examples: brick dust, cellulose, cement, coal dust, gypsum, limestone, Plaster of Paris, pollen, sugar.

FFP2 Dust Masks


FFP2 dust masks offer a moderate level of protection against hazardous mists and particulates and fume. Exhalation valves are more common in this rating of mask as there is greater breathing resistance. Some FFP2 dust masks have an activated charcoal layer to protect against ozone and these are often called welding dust masks.

FFP2 dust mask protection examples: brake dust, cotton dust, granite dust, hay, lead dust and fume, softwood dust.

FFP2V Dust Masks


FFP2V dust masks provide the highest level of protection that a disposable mask can offer. A well-fitting FFP3 mask will protect against fine toxic particulates including asbestos, bacteria, viruses, and radioactive particles. Due to the thickness of the filter material an exhalation valve is almost always fitted.
