Kleenguard particulate respirator is effective and comfortable

Kimberly-Clark Professional is introducing a new design of Kleenguard particulate respirator that is claimed to offer improved comfort thanks to a new strap and dual valves.

Kleenguard particulate respirator is effective and comfortable

As well as being more comfortable, the new mask is also said to provide effective protection against fine particles; people are therefore happier to wear the new Kleenguard particulate respirators for longer periods, thereby reducing downtime and increasing safety and PPE compliance. They are also designed to work with Kleenguard eyewear.

Brian Davis, Category Manager Safety Business, explains: "The unique new Comfort Strap used in Kimberly-Clark Professional's new Kleenguard particulate respirators is wider than traditional headbands and is made from a softer than usual material. They were developed in response to demand from customers, who were finding that people had to change masks several times during a shift, significantly increasing downtime. The new strap means less pressure on the head and the unique non-woven material used, which was developed with our colleagues in the consumer area of Kimberly-Clark under the Huggies brand, gives it added comfort."

Reduced fogging of eyewear

Comfort is further enhanced with the fitting of dual valves to the new respirators. They maximise the flow of warm and humid air away from the face and so minimise fogging of eyewear.

Brian Davis says: "The new Kleenguard particulate respirators are designed to work well with Kleenguard eyewear. Their convex shape and nose clip give an excellent fit for a wide variety of face shapes. The soft foam used on the nose clip, with a cloth layer, also helps to reduce fogging.

"Kleenguard particulate respirators with comfort strap and dual valves offer a unique new solution to user discomfort when wearing respiratory protection. End users have already told us that they much prefer the new strap over conventional headbands. The new Kleenguard particulate respirator means more comfort and better protection."
