Wearer compliance depends heavily on comfort.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
For easier breathing and greater comfort, Gateway Safety offers the revolutionary PeakFit® disposable N95 particulate respirator. PeakFit is an exceptionally comfortable product for workers required to wear respiratory protection, designed to improve compliance through its unique design and custom fit features.
OSHA annually lists respiratory protection in its top ten most frequently cited workplace violations. With proper fit being a main indicator of compliance, employers can look to PeakFit to provide the long-term comfort and fit their workers need. Poor fit – or noncompliance because of poor fit – can lead to serious long-term health consequences.
“Wearer compliance depends heavily on comfort,” said Matthew Love, Vice President. “And PeakFit, available in both vented and unvented models, is ideal for promoting habit-forming safe work practices.”
The disposable PeakFit N95 respirator from Gateway Safety offers a true one-size-fits-all configuration due to its adjustable head strap. The one-piece cloth head strap is fitted with an adjustable clasp to fit any head size. Plus, its integrated design is more durable than typical stapled versions.
PeakFit includes a large, molded shell, making room for easy breathing and speaking. Its nosebridge area – typically fitted with a metal pinch piece – instead is made with a soft, closed-cell foam on the inside of, which conforms to the user’s face and creates a close but comfortable seal.
PeakFit, a NIOSH-approved N95 air-purifying respirator, is available in four versions: both vented and unvented PeakFit (filtration against aerosols free of oils below PEL*); vented PeakFit OV (additional filtration against aerosols free of organic vapors below PEL*); and unvented PeakFit AG (additional filtration against aerosols free of organic vapors and acid gases below PEL*).
*PEL = Permissible Exposure Limit.
