Face Mask Innovation

(save money, save environment, multi-functional long term use)

Three parts

   1) Reusable Gill Mask

       (respirator shell)

   2) Reusable Filter Cartridge 

       (can insert various filters

        eg. Surgical, ASTM 1-3,

        select N95)

 

   3) Disposable Filter

       

Key Benefits

  • comfort, hypoallergenic

  • air-tight fit & protection

  • reusable but also "certified" filters (know the level of protection)

- HOW do you manage 

air-borne viruses

- USE PROPER DESIGN (reusable mask with replacable cartridges and tight/flexible silicone seal)

Gill Respirator Mask

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Save Money

reusable mask lasts years, enables disposable masks to go 6 times farther (cut a disposable mask into 6 Gill Mask filters) or buy pre-cut disposable filters from us 

Multi-functional Use

a Gill filter cartridge allows for various filter types to be inserted... you select protection level based on the filter type you insert (e.g. cloth, surgical, charcoal, select N95/KN95, Level 1/2/3, dust, etc)

Save Environment

over a 60 day period, 60 disposable masks are discarded (hazardous waste), however with a Gill Mask you throw away 8.7 mask equivalent (Gill filter is 1/6 size of a disposable mask)

Air-tight Comfort

COVID-19 is airborne, help combat airborne particles with air-tight fit

(disposable masks are generally barriers not designed for air-tight fit, Gill silicone facepiece easily fits to contours of your face)

Gill Mask is a

MID-LEVEL

TYPE

long lifespan

(wash & reuse), 

filter cartridge allows for filters to easily be replaced daily or weekly,

secure fit design 

(scuba concept)

What are other masks-types

& how do they compare?

BASE-LEVEL

TYPE

not air-tight designed, disposable/short term 

use, difficult/leaky fit, fabric touches face, only uses 

1 type  of filter

NOTE: if equipped with exhaust flap the virus is allowed to escape to the air

INDUSTRIAL-LEVEL TYPE

long term reusable mask 

designed with replaceable

multi-type cartridges,

secure fit (silicone & rubber scuba concept), heavy duty

industrial use, integrates with full face mask, heavy weight, hazmat focused design

NOTE:

filters can be cut by user from a disposable mask to maximize value and get 4-8 filters from one disposable mask

(e.g. dust, surgical, Level 1/2/3, select N95/KN95, etc)

 

OR

 

you can order from us packages of pre-cut filters (inserts) that are already cut to size for the cartridge 

(ten filters/package)

* NOTE: with an increasing variety of N95/KN95 disposable masks it is recommended to contact us to confirm Manufacturers we have tested and passed or else buy from ISO approved factories and conduct independent testing

 

The most commonly tested filters that pass within the Gill Mask are from 3M

Are Gill masks & filters certified?

Our authorized licence to import medical devices (MDEL Licence) is # 13835. Our products include: 

  • Gill Respirator Face Mask (ISO 13485 & 14001, EN10993, skin compatibility, C02, flammability, field of vision, head harness)

  • Gill Filter FS2 (EN 14683 certified and approved in Canada with BFE >=98%). Gill filters are pre-cut to fit the cartridge & come 10 to a package.

How does it differ from a surgical mask?

Basic face masks (e.g. surgical, dental, dust, home-made cloth) are not designed for airborne protection and act as barriers for splashes and large droplets.

 

Respirators are designed to protect against airborne contaminants such as aerosols that can float in the air for hours.

Surgical Mask FAQ

How did the concept of this "mid-level" mask start?


In early days of COVID-19, officials in Singapore approached an innovative Engineering and Design Company to create a mask to address problems associated with Base-Level Masks. The market needed a top quality product (move away from disposable models). There needed to be certifications but with a focus on the filter. The Facilities to manufacture also should have experience with health care equipment. The award-winning mDesign Organization produced the mask and is now in full production and support of the product around the world. For further details about the manufacturer, please visit their websites at: www.mas-gill.com or for details on the Design Company please visit https://www.mdesign.com.sg




What mask problems did this mask design address?


An advanced design mask was needed and had to address problems related to the traditional disposable "dust-mask styles". Example key problems include: - COVID-19 is airborne, a mask needs to be designed to address this risk most masks follow the traditional surgical mask design (dust-mask style) which allows viruses to enter at cheeks/chin areas (especially during heavy breathing) - need a good seal around the nose (instead of using a metal band) - masks are commonly disposable so the life-cycle and long term costs are too expensive - millions of disposable masks create health, garbage and environmental problems - masks cannot be adjusted to filter out various levels of contaminants (e.g. N95 is a good grade, but for COVID-19 people could switch filters and use N99 or N100)
