The PRO mask uses a unique triple filter system.
The first layer of the filter system catches larger pollution particles such as dust and PM10.
It’s then backed up by the Three-Ply Micro Particulate which stops nearly 100% of smaller particulate matter such as PM2.5 and PM0.3.
The inner filtration layer is made from 100% pure activated carbon cloth, originally developed by the UK Ministry of Defense for chemical, biological, and nuclear warfare protection. The carbon filter is treated with silver to ensure 99% of harmful pathogens are removed and killed.
This multi layered filter system means the Cambridge Mask performs better and lasts longer than other masks on the market.
The mask can be washed with soap and hot water, however, keep in mind that this will not extend the life of the mask. For the average customer this is around 3-6 months of wear.
Many European airlines are no longer allowing passengers to board flights with masks that are not either surgical, valveless FFP2, FFP3, or N95. This means that most cloth masks are not acceptable protection for these airlines. Luckily, Cambridge Masks are FFP2 certified. This certification is listed on the black tag on the front of the mask. It is important to note that only NON-VALVE FFP2 Cambridge masks are acceptable. Please ensure that you are purchasing a NON-VALVE mask if you are intending to travel by air.
Canadian airlines are allowing passengers to wear cloth masks, however they are NOT allowing ventilated masks. Please ensure that you are purchasing a NON-VALVE mask for air travel within Canada.
What is an FFP2 Mask?
The FFP2 is actually classed as a respirator, rather than a mask, meaning they offer better protection. FFP stands for “Filtering Face Piece”, with the number corresponding to the level of protection the piece provides, 1 being the lowest level of protection and 3 being the highest.
Nearly all airlines and travel authorities require face masks during travel. Some airlines are now enforcing specific mask guidelines for passengers. Non-Valve Cambridge masks are ideal for travel safety regulations, while Pro Cambridge masks (ventilated) are best for high-intensity activities which require more ventilation.
How to use the Headstrap and Nose Foam
The head strap clips to each ear loop then goes around the back of the head, reducing strain on the ears and tightening the mask on the nose and chin.
The nose foam can be stuck inside the nose section of your mask to increase comfort and prevent fogging up of glasses in colder weather.
