What is the Flawa FFP2 respirator suitable for?

We recommend our FFP2 respirator for medical/healthcare professionals, as well as for use in areas with large crowds of people/where interaction is required. The FFP2 mask is designed to protect the wearer and other people, which is why it is tighter fitting and also has a high particle filtration efficiency. The mask also protects against pollen and dust.

Frequently asked questions

What does FFP2 stand for?

FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece. FFP masks protect the wearer against particulate pollutants such as dust, smoke and aerosols. They are available in three protection levels: FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3. These are standardised throughout Europe in accordance with EN 149:2001+A1:2009 (corresponds to DIN EN149:2009-08). Respirators with higher protection levels filter out particles more effectively.

How is an FFP2 mask measured?

Around 10% of all inhaled aerosols remain in the respiratory tract. FFP2 masks filter out these harmful water and oil-based particles before they can get there. The requirement here is a filtration efficiency of 94% for all airborne pollutants, with a total leakage of no more than 8%.

How are FFP2 masks different to CPA masks?

For a protective mask to be classified as FFP2 in accordance with EN 149, a comprehensive procedure must be carried out in accordance with both Regulation (EU) 2016/425 on personal protective equipment and EN 149. For this reason, a shortened assessment procedure was permitted for “Coronavirus Pandemic Respirators (CPA)”. It is not necessary for these masks to undergo the entire EN 149 testing procedure. The test values that must be achieved are based on EN149 – specifically, the FFP2 standard – whereby the following points are assessed: usage simulation, visual inspection, putting-on test, breathing resistance and penetration of the filter medium.

Can I protect people around me by wearing an FFP2 mask?

When used correctly, the mask not only protects the wearer but also minimizes the risk of infection for people in the vicinity.

Will the FFP2 mask protect me against infection with the coronavirus?

If used correctly, are coronaviruses able to penetrate the mask, or is its only purpose to prevent the further spread of the virus?

FFP2 masks are designed to protect both the wearer and other people. However, the masks must be used correctly – in accordance with the information leaflet.

In every respect, the masks have been designed to guarantee the best possible protection against coronaviruses. 

Wofür steht Typ IIR?

Unter den OP-Masken werden drei Maskentypen wie folgt unterschieden:

Typ I Masken bieten keinen ausreichenden Schutz für eine Anwendung im medizinischen Bereich, hierfür werden Typ II oder Typ IIR vorgeschrieben. Für den Schutz vor Viren (welche rund 200x kleiner sind als Bakterien) eignet sich ausschliesslich die Typ IIR-Maske, da diese zusätzlich über einen gewissen Spritzwiderstand verfügt. Einen effektiven Schutz vor Aerosolen bieten allerdings ausschliesslich Masken der (gängigen) Klassen FFP2, FFP3, N95 und KN95.

What is the filtration efficiency of a FFP2 mask?

FFP2 masks filter out at least 94% of particles. These masks are classed as personal protective equipment.

Wie lange sind die FFP2-Masken haltbar?

Bis zu 5 Jahre (siehe «Ende der Lagerzeit» auf der Produktverpackung).

Where can I buy the FFP2 mask?

The masks are currently available to purchase in the Flawa online shop: www.flawaconsumer-shop.ch
The Flawa FFP2 mask is also available in pharmacies. We are also in the process of establishing additional sales channels. We will keep you up to date on ourwebsite: www.flawaconsumer.com

Do FFP masks equipped with a valve offer better protection?

The design of FFP masks may vary, with some products also having an exhalation valve. Masks with a valve only filter the inhaled air, therefore they are only designed to protect the wearer. If you also want to protect people in your vicinity with regard to the coronavirus pandemic, then valveless masks are recommended. FFP masks equipped with valves are designed for work in harsh ortoxic environments.

For how long can I wear the FFP2 mask?

The FFP2 mask is intended for use during a single work shift and cannot be reused (subject to the limitations detailed in the information leaflet)

«Wir haben viele Masken probiert, aber die FLAWA-Masken schließen perfekt am Gesicht ab, sehen gut aus und sind angenehm zu tragen.»

Customer feedback 29.03.2021

«Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dieser Maske. Ich trage sie an der Arbeit, obwohl wir Einwegmasken zur Verfügung gestellt erhalten. Ich fühle mich sicherer mit dieser Maske, da ich zu den Risikopersonen gehöre. So wollte ich auch ein Zeichen setzen am Arbeitsplatz mit einer zertifizierten Maske. Sie ist einfacher im Handling als die Einwegmaske, sie sitzt gut und man benötigt zum Anziehen keinen Spiegel.»

Customer feedback vom 29.08.2020

«Ich habe mich für die FFP2 Maske mit Band am Hinterkopf entschieden, weil sie einen hohen Tragekomfort und eine optimale Passform aufweist. In meiner Praxis tragen alle diese Maske, da sie ausgezeichnet vor Aerosolen schützt. Dass die Maske in der Schweiz hergestellt wird, ist ein weiterer Vorteil.»
