Our base model, the clear tilium N95 mask is stylish and made with breathable and comfortable material so the person wearing can communicate with confidence and visual expressions. This mask is for daily use and could be reused and sanitized. Most importantly, available in multiple sizes to fit all.
There are various types of masks out there. During the COVID19 outbreak, N95 masks, once labeled as strictly professional, have quickly become common. N95 masks are a lot more reliable compared to the typical surgical masks or handmade face masks. Compared to the regular surgical masks, specialized N-95 respirators are tight-fitting, reliable, and aren’t prone to leakage. Therefore, if approached wisely, N-95 filters work very well when it comes to protecting people from the new deadly disease.
The similarities among surgical masks and surgical N-95s are:
N-95 respirators are examples of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer from airborne particles and from liquid contaminating the face. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also regulate N-95 respirators.
It is important to recognize that the optimal way to prevent airborne transmission is to use a combination of interventions from across the hierarchy of controls, not just Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) alone.
Most N-95 respirators are manufactured for use in construction and other industrial type jobs that expose workers to dust and small particles. They are regulated by the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
However, some N-95 respirators are intended for use in a health care setting. Specifically, single-use, disposable respiratory protective devices used and worn by health care personnel during procedures to protect both the patient and health care personnel from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids, and particulate material. These surgical N-95 respirators are class II devices regulated by the FDA, under 21 CFR 878.4040, and CDC NIOSH under 42 CFR Part 84.
N-95s respirators regulated under product code MSH are class II medical devices exempt from 510(k) premarket notification, unless:
