Surgical Face Masks disposable devices designed to be worn on the face to cover the mouth and nose. They are effective in reducing the spread of viruses in a medical setting when combined with the use of other PPE.

We will donate 50p to the NHS from the sale of every PPE item. Your contribution will go towards providing much-needed equipment to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Why aren’t you giving this equipment to the NHS?

We are working with the NHS in order to supply them with the PPE equipment they need. We have been able to obtain large stocks of PPE, such as face masks, medical gowns and hand sanitiser. The vast majority of our stock has been earmarked for the NHS, where it will go to healthcare workers dealing with coronavirus patients.

However, we also recognise that other key workers, such as delivery drivers, care workers and supermarket staff also require items of PPE in order to safely do their jobs. In response to this, we have made a limited amount of our PPE stock available for sale to the general public. Our intention is to supply high-quality, certified PPE to key workers who may otherwise struggle to get hold of it.

If you would like more information about this, please get in touch.

 

Surgical Face Mask

Surgical Face Masks disposable devices designed to be worn on the face to cover the mouth and nose. They are effective in reducing the spread of viruses in a medical setting when combined with the use of other PPE.

Instant eCare sells two varieties; N95 grade respirators and surgical face masks. Both are CE marked as being suitable for sale in the United Kingdom.

Both items are clinical-grade and are designed to be worn by medical professionals in a clinical setting. Current government advice is that the wearing of face masks by non-medical professionals is unnecessary in combating the spread of coronavirus.

How these masks work

Surgical face masks will also prevent you from touching your mouth or nose, which reduces the risk of transmission if you have infected droplets of saliva or nasal mucous on your hands. In order to further mitigate this risk, you must wash your hands consistently and thoroughly.

Our surgical face masks are 3-ply, and have a particle filtration efficiency of around 92%, and a bacterial filtration efficiency of 99%. They are suitable for use for a variety of purposes, such as construction, cleaning, and protecting yourself from biological particles in suspension.

Before you wear these masks

You should ensure that the level of protection these masks offer you is sufficient for the concentration and contaminants of your work area. Wearing masks does not guarantee that you will not become infected.

Wear only one mask at a time. Wearing more than one mask will not reduce the risk of infection.

If you have facial hair, leak-tightness is unlikely to be achieved with an N95 respirator. This will significantly reduce the effectiveness of the respirator. You are advised to remove your facial hair before wearing to ensure that the mask fits tightly enough to protect you from infection. This is not an issue with surgical face masks as unlike N95 masks they are not designed to achieve a tight fit around the mouth and nose.

Face masks should not be shared or reused.

Wearing a face mask may make it more difficult for you to breathe. If you suffer from respiratory problems, you should consult your healthcare provider before wearing a face mask.

Should your mask become soiled or damaged, you should replace it. Wear a new mask, and dispose of the old one by placing it into a plastic bag and into a bin. Wash your hands after disposing of the new mask.
