As masks must be worn in many public spaces, lots of people prefer a mask that is easy to use and store. The MaXmed surgical face mask is extremely comfortable to wear and offers the best levels of protection in the range of Type I, Type II and Type III masks. It is suitable for all everyday applications, such as shopping, travelling on public transport, or spending time in enclosed public spaces.
Surgical face masks (Class I medical device) are primarily used to protect other people from being exposed to any infectious droplets exhaled by the person wearing the mask. Although these masks also provide the wearer with limited protection if they fit tightly, this is not the primary purpose of their use.

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.
With over 100 years of experience, Flawa Consumer GmbH in Switzerland develops and produces cotton products and innovative fresh soles, primarily for the European market. In April 2020, Flawa responded to the supply shortage of protective masks at that time by setting up its own mask production facility. The expertise gained since then has transformed Flawa’s initial goal of ensuring domestic supply security into a long-term, third mainstay for the company, i.e. the production high-quality respirators; developed and produced in Switzerland.
The first batch of over 100,000 universal masks was sold out within minutes. Over several months, Flawa continuously optimised and expanded its mask production, enabling it to become the first company to produce FFP2 masks in Switzerland. It also manufactures additional mask types in the country, such as the widely used Type IIR face masks.
Flawa currently operates six plants for the production of various types of respirators, with two additional plants at the planning stage. Three of the existing plants produce FFP2 masks. The production capacity of these plants is around 500,000 FFP2 masks per week.
Flawa supplies its FFP2 masks to the Swiss federal government – other customers include retailers and foreign countries. Furthermore, bottlenecks in the procurement of raw materials due to increased demand are not an issue thanks to the company’s long-standing relationships with extremely reliable suppliers – the Flawa masks can be made ready for shipment at short notice. The filtration efficiency of the masks is regularly tested at the company’s in-house QA laboratory before they reach the market.
