Alert number

The particle/filter retention of the material is insufficient (measured values: as low as 46%). Furthermore, one of the two filter layers does not provide full coverage (missing from the upper chin, cheek and lower chin area). Consequently, the product does not fulfil the health and safety requirements; thus, even if combined with other recommended measures, it may not properly protect.
The product does not comply with the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation nor with the European standard EN 149.
