The N95 Mask You Wear Is Only As Good As Its Seal!

This PFL Twist Seal® Magic Arch® N95 Respirator Face Mask Eliminates the Need to Stock Multiple Sizes & Allows Users to Customize The Fit! If You Are Seeking the Ultimate Seal, Then Alpha ProTech’s Positive Facial Lock® (PFL) Technology is Something You Need!

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 NIOSH Alpha Protech® PFL® Magic Arch® Twist Seal® Respirators masks or particulate respirators, scientific data will also show there are performance aspects that can mean the difference between staying healthy or becoming infected.  An important and obvious aspect to respiratory safety is filtration, but the single most important factor is ultimately the facial seal, thus the reason for different sizes.

Face masks and N95 respirator masks 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.

Filtration refers to the percentage of particles the mask material blocks. For example, a N95 respirator mask filters at least 95 percent of fine size airborne particles but this becomes meaningless if there are gaps around the mouth that lets air in freely.  Also, comfort is an important metric: a mask is no good if it isn’t being worn.

It is very important that a mask properly fits the wearers face. A properly fitted mask should rest snugly around the mouth and over the chin and nose. If the respirator's seal leaks or the mask sags along the sides, 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.

FEATURES & BENEFITSAlpha Protech® PFL® Magic Arch® Twist Seal® Respirator Shown Being Worn

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 utilize an exclusive Twist-Seal® technology that allows the user to create a custom and perfect fit to their respiratory device 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. This technology also enables facilities to convert to just one size respirator thus reducing inventory and the potential for infection should a user grab the wrong size.

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.  

The Positive Facial Lock® (PFL®) N-95 Particulate Respirator meets the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended protection levels (where applicable) for many airborne contaminants. NIOSH Approved, the 8-inch fluid-resistant N-95 delivers the appropriate amount of filtration efficiency and when combined with a trio of patented and unique design features, also delivers the user a comfortable, breathable and custom fitting facemask.
