Face Covers & Masks/Respirators
What is the difference in a Face Cover and a Mask/Respirator ?
Face Cover is a Product that is designed to help you cover your nose & Mouth and help you inhale thru it comfortably while ensuring basic protection is available to you from large dust particles. It does not contain a special filter layer in them. It is a replacement for the commonly available Cloth masks / handkerchief or Cotton Masks available in the market.
A Mask / Respirator in our website means a product that is designed to provide from Moderate to High protection against the many particles such as dust/fumes/pollution/ bacteria and virus. The efficiency of the Mask/Respirator is depending on the quality of the filtration it provides and ultimately depends on the number of filter layers that have been employed in the mask. This varies from product to product and ATcares Level to Level.
