Disposable Respirators & Masks
Disposable respirators and masks cover the mouth and nose to provide short-term, light-duty breathing protection. They are designed to be worn once and thrown away. Respirators are NIOSH-rated to indicate the level of protection provided and are often worn in healthcare environments. General purpose masks filter out dust and mild irritants and are commonly worn at construction and agricultural jobsites. Disposable welding respirators are worn in high-heat environments.
