Respirator MasksThe SpectraShield™ antimicrobial respirator masks are the best choice for front line defense against infectious and contagious diseases, including the Avian Bird Flu (H5N1 Virus), Influenza A (Swine Flu or H1N1 virus), Tuberculosis, Streptococcus, MRSA (staph infection), and more. (See Antimicrobial Testing). Based on a proven patented technology, the SpectraShield™ mask incorporates a natural and organic antimicrobial agent which is proven safe for extended contact with individuals.
With tested filtration performance equivalent to an N99 (meaning 99% of contaminants are trapped in the filter and do not get through the mask), the SpectraShield™ mask meets the guidelines for infectious disease exposure control established by the World Health Organization ("WHO") and the Center for Disease Control ("CDC").
The SpectraShield™ is scientifically proven to combat the growth of harmful microorganisms and biological pathogens and should be considered the number one choice in personal protection. Every family should have a stockpile of SpectraShield™ masks at home.
The SpectraShield™ antimicrobial agent has been proven to be effective for up to a year. Some antimicrobial masks require frequent changing of the filtration cartridges at an additional cost where this is not necessary with the SpectraShield mask. Easily and hands-down, no other antimicrobial mask can compare to the performance of the SpectraShield™ Series of mask.
Why the SpectraShield™ Antimicrobial Mask?
There is an increased threat of a human influenza pandemic with the existence of the Avian Influenza, known as the H5N1 virus, and the Swine Flu, known as the H1N1 virus, both of which have infected humans worldwide and caused thousands of fatalities.
Most of these cases have occurred from direct or close contact with other infected individuals or contaminated surfaces. The infection caused from these viruses in humans is life threatening and there has been a high associated mortality rate thus far.
The Center for Disease Control ("CDC") and the Word Health Organization ("WHO") have made infection control recommendations to minimize the possibility of transmission of influenza viruses which include the use of respirator masks like the SpectraShield™ series of respirator masks. The recommendations also include masks for protection against the transmission of Tuberculosis. The SpectraShield™ respirator masks have been proven effective in killing Tuberculosis, as well as other harmful and infectious diseases.
