Why Choose an N95 Mask?

Respirator masks are in demand given the unprecedented global pandemic thrust upon us in recent months. Investing in high quality personal protective equipment (PPE) is a must for your business and family. The N95 Mask has emerged as the international golden standard when it comes to protective masks not only for its filtration capability but also its strict regulatory compliance framework which ensures quality control and the highest purity filtration. The N95 masks for sale by AccuMed are sourced directly from NIOSH approved manufacturers as listed on the CDC website (no middle-men). AccuMed has gone through great lengths in order to ensure the quality and authenticity of our N95 masks and to secure these extremely hard to find masks for sale and distribution in the United States. We are glad to present these N95 masks as IN STOCK and ready for sale with local supply out of Houston, Texas, available with overnight, 2-day and ground shipping options via FEDEX.


How Does an N95 Mask Compare to Other Masks?

Several factors make the N95 mask a standout PPE product. As opposed to surgical masks which are loose fitting, the N95 mask provides a tight fitting seal which does not allow air to escape from the sides. This is extremely important if you are interested in protecting yourself from inhaling particles. Surgical masks and to a lesser extent cloth masks may assist in preventing the wearer from spreading particles, but, due to their loose fitting nature, they are not designed or intended to protect the wearer from inhaling particles themselves. N95 masks on the other hand, due to the tight fit and air seal, are designed to protect the wearer from inhaling 95% of particles greater than 0.3 micron.

In addition, what separates N95 masks from KN95 masks is that the N95 mask is regulated and approved by the United States Center of Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The manufacturing and quality control guidelines enforced by these bodies over N95 masks is an order of magnitude more strict and stringent than that of KN95 masks under the Chinese authority. In addition to annual audits by the CDC/NIOSH, a manufacturer of N95 masks by default will be subject to much more stringent testing and quality control standard procedures from the intake of materials, to the manufacturing process, all the way through to the final sample testing and quality control of the end product before delivery to customers. KN95 masks would not be subject to such regulatory control and the Chinese authority really leaves it up to each individual manufacturer to regulate themselves for the most part leaving a higher risk to consumers in comparison to an approved N95 mask.


Who Would Benefit from an N95 Mask?

In addition to healthcare and other frontline workers, N95 masks are often used in various industries and sectors such as construction, mining, food processing, food safety, general manufacturing, transportation, oil and gas and virtually any other industry where there is a risk of inhaling micro particles. However, with the onset of the global pandemic in 2019/2020, N95 masks and similar respirators are now commonly used in virtually every industry which requires face to face interaction with other people. Ideally, given an unlimited and unrestrained supply of N95 masks (which is currently not the case), in theory every American should wear an N95 mask whenever they are in a high risk environment such as a crowded place in order to protect themselves. However, due to the current international strain on the supply of N95 masks at present, many governments find it impractically to recommend that the general population use N95 masks due to the further constraint this would place on the N95 mask supply chain and which may negatively impact the ability of healthcare and frontline workers to acquire such N95 masks. As the months wear on during the pandemic, and new international and US based supply of N95 masks become available, there will start to emerge a more accepted trend of consumers using N95 masks to fight against the pandemic. With 95% filtration efficiency and a tight fitting seal, there is no better protection than an N95 mask at this time for use in the workplace, public transport, or commercial spaces.
