A Domestic Manufacturer of Respiratory Safety Masks since 1989

Did You Know That the Mask You Wear Is Only As Good As Its Seal?

Do you realize that the facial seal around the mouth and nose is the most critical factor to personal safety? When dealing with protective face masks or particulate respirators, scientific data will also show there are performance aspects that can mean the difference between staying healthy or becoming sick.  An important and obvious aspect to respiratory safety is filtration, but the single most important factor is ultimately the facial seal.

Face masks and N95 respirators are worn to protect the lungs from the inhalation exposure of airborne particulates and biohazardous aerosols. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states "that tight-fitting respirators need a tight seal between the respirator and the face and/or neck of the respirator user for it to work properly, thus the reason for fit testing.

If the respirator's seal leaks or a mask sags, contaminated air will be pulled into the facepiece breathing zone and can be breathed in rendering the masks useless. Therefore, anything that interferes with the respirator seal is not permitted when using this type of respirator. This includes facial hair."

If you’re seeking the ultimate seal, then Alpha ProTech’s Positive Facial Lock® (PFL) technology is something you need!


Established in 1989, Alpha ProTech® began as a face shield company and proceeded through various acquisitions which added face masks, disposable protective garments, automated shoe covers and lamination capabilities to their corporate portfolio. Today Alpha Pro Tech® designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of high quality, high value and superior performing limited-use personal protective equipment (P.P.E.)  such as innovative face masks, face shields, protective apparel and one of the most important respiratory safety products made in the United States today - a disposable NIOSH approved N95 Particulate Respirator.

The company is focused on protecting the wellness of people, products and environments and a closer inspection of their protective face masks will reveal pure genius. Many of Alpha Pro Tech’s Critical Cover® face masks are ASTM-F2100 compliant and integrate a patented technology feature designed to both enhance user comfort and maximize product performance.

With a variety of protective products and configurations for the laboratory, healthcare, cleanroom and light industrial markets, they have just the right respiratory device product for your specific working environment and/or application.



A Proper Facial Seal Is a Critical Component to Respiratory Protection against Airborne Viruses. Twist Seal® Technology  Snugs the Mask Under the Chin!

Masks with innovative and patented Positive Facial Lock® (PFL®) technology utilizes an exclusive Twist-Seal® technology that allows the user to create a custom fit each and every time with just a simple twist of the mask! This unique feature creates a positive facial seal to a variety of facial sizes by virtually eliminating gaps at the border of the facemasks and significantly reduces the possibility of the wearer inhaling airborne contaminants.


Magic Arch® Design Reduces Skin Irritation and Prevents Soggy Masks

Additionally, Critical Cover® masks with integrated Magic Arch® support takes performance and comfort to a new level. Magic Arch® prevents the inner mask lining from coming in contact with the user's nose and mouth thereby making it easier to breathe and talk while enhancing filtration efficiency. It also helps prevent soggy masks that often result from conversation.
