Gill Respirator Style Face Mask
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Proper Safe Fit & Comfort
COVID-19 is airborne, help combat airborne particles with an air-tight fit & seal (silicone adapts to face contours and is also hypoallergenic), disposable & cloth masks generally act as barriers to protect others and are not designed for air-tight fit
a Gill filter cartridge allows for various filter types to be inserted so you control your level of protection based on the filter you insert (e.g. surgical, N95/KN95, ASTM Level 1/2/3,
in less than 60 days the mask pays for itself (payback period) then every day after that the savings accumulate, savings are from filters since disposable masks will go 4-6 times farther (cut disposable masks into 4-6 filters) or also can buy pre-cut disposable filters (at lower $)
when using a traditional disposable mask over a 60 day period, 60 disposable masks are discarded (bio-hazardous waste), however with a Gill Mask you throw away only 10 mask equivalent (Gill filter is 1/6 size of a disposable mask), the Gill mask is reusable for years

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

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.
