- 5-Ply thickness KN95 filtration masks for added protection against Covid-19
- Help protects the wearer and others from large droplets
- Filters out at least 95% of particulates as small a 0.3 microns
- Lightweight, comfortable and breathable
These KN95 filtration masks are suitable for care home staff, health care facilities or personal assistants and carers. They help minimise the risk of infection from coronavirus/Covid-19 for both the key worker and the person they care for.
Like surgical/medical masks, these 5-ply masks help to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in larger droplets coughed, sneezed or expelled when taking.
However, these KN95 filtration masks offer additional protection by filtering out at least 95% of particulates as small a 0.3 microns breathed in by the wearer (when bought with a filter).
Please note that although these masks limit the spread of large droplets expelled by the wearer and reaching the wearer’s face, they only filter out small particles breathed in by the wearer, not those breathed out.
They are lightweight, comfortable and breathable, and designed to fit snuggly across the mouth, nose and jaw to provide everyday protection.
To offer maximum protection, they should fit tightly. These makes are a standard one-size-fits-all – 17.5 x 9.5 cm – but may not fit everyone exactly.
They are disposable, but some advice suggests that they can be reused in certain cases or specific ways – scroll down below for more information on reusing filtration maks.
These masks adhere to the Chinese standard for these types of masks. They are largely equivalent to N95 masks (the US standard) and FFP2 masks (European standard). Scroll down for more on the different filtration mask standards.
These masks are available with or without the respirator filter. Only those with the filter offer additional protection for the wearer.
Individually packed or in packs of 5, depending on your order quantity. KN95 masks without the respirator are individually wrapped and have full instructions on the packaging.
Standard: GB 2626-2006 KN95. Current brands in stock: DR MFYAM, LaiYin.

Government guidance recommends cloth face masks for the general public, while filtration face masks are reserved for health and social care workers.
These products are being sold to help people with carers and personal assistants, or for smaller care agencies or organisations who are finding it difficult to obtain appropriate PPE from other sources.
We also support people with disabilities, health conditions or those in ‘clinically vulnerable’ groups and their families who wish to choose a higher level of personal protection than the Government is recommending for the general public.
Please scroll down for advice on Direct Payment or Continuing Healthcare budgets to help pay for PPE, and links to further reading on what PPE to choose, how to wear face masks and safely disposing of PPE.
These masks have been sourced by the Disability Horizons Shop from a reputable UK PPE supplier.
