INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

The disposable face mask may filter out many of the ‘nuisance organic vapours’ whilst being exposed to a fume event in flight?

  1. Hold the mask firmly and place the bottom headband over the head to the nape of the neck. The easy flow exhalation valve helps to avoid moisture and heat build-up.
  2. Place the mask over the nose putting the top headband over the crown of the head.
  3. Ensure the nose clip is securely moulded around the nose, resting the ends against the cheek to obtain a good seal.
  4. Check the fit, place both hands completely over the respirator and inhale vigorously. If air leaks at the edge, readjust the mask, manipulating the nose bridge and headband to effect on acceptable seal.

Mask fitting

WHEN SHOULD I WEAR THIS MASK?

The only way of detecting a fume event is by smelling or seeing it yourself.

This can be described as an oily smell, old trainers or visible fumes.

In the event of these signs you should take the mask from its sealed packet and place it over your nose and mouth with the two rubber bands behind your head and follow the instructions opposite. Breathe normally and consider keeping your eyes closed.
