FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NANOLOGIX RESPIRA COMPACT

The half-mask itself is made of durable, long-lasting medical-grade silicone and can therefore be disinfected and sterilised without damage. For routine maintenance, we recommend sterilising the half mask with alcohol-based cleaning agents. Replaceable filters can only be sterilized using special procedures – UV, ozone, immersion in an alcohol disinfectant bath or spraying, but the filter material must be perfectly dried before further use. The half-mask and filters can also be sterilized by heat (up to 80 degrees). However, unprofessional sterilization may damage the nanofibre material and reduce its effectiveness, therefore sterilization of filters in domestic conditions is not recommended and cannot be guaranteed.

The lifetime of the filters varies individually depending on the type and level of contamination of the environment in which the half mask is used. In moderately contaminated environments, the filter can be used repeatedly for up to 30 days if the principles of hygienic handling are observed, and the user will usually recognise this point by the fact that it is no longer difficult to breathe in the mask. On the other hand, in hazardous environments (contact with viruses or substances dangerous to humans), we recommend changing the filter at least once a day as a precaution. In heavy industry, the declared filter lifetime is 1 working shift, for doctors and emergency services it is 1 working shift, possibly until the moment of contamination.

 

The Nanologix half mask has been designed for professional use and is therefore intended for adults. It is not suitable for children and is unlikely to seal sufficiently.
– Does the Nanologix Respira half mask protect against coronavirus? Yes, when used in combination with the appropriate replacement filters. The Nano Perfection P2 series filters guarantee a 99% capture rate, and thanks to the special design without an exhalation valve, the wearer and his/her surroundings are protected (no need to wear a facepiece over the respirator). The Perfection P3 series filters provide up to 99.99% capture and guarantee reliable protection even in high-risk environments, e.g. in contact with an infectious person.

In combination with the Nano Perfection P2 filter, this is not necessary; thanks to the special filter design without an exhalation valve, the exhaled air is also filtered. When using the Perfection P3 filter, we recommend using a special cotton cover from our range, as this type of filter has an exhalation valve.

Yes, the half-mask is designed for professional use by security and rescue forces, so it is combinable with all the usual components of security equipment. For maximum comfort and effectiveness, we recommend compatible goggles and shields from our range.
