Overview: Filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) are subject to various regulatory standards around the world (see examples below) and provide a much higher level of protection with face form-fitting and greater pressure drop. To claim compliance with the particular standard as listed below, these respirators must meet or exceed required physical properties and performance characteristics, which can vary according to the regulatory bodies of different countries.
- N95 (United States NIOSH-42CFR84)
- KN95 (China GB2626-2006)
- FFP2 (Europe EN 149-2001)
KN95 respirators are respiratory protective devices designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. The ‘KN95’ designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 microns) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of KN95 respirators exceed those of face masks.
