"ACAMP is proud to release the A95™ respirator to the US market." said Ken Brizel, CEO ACAMP
EDMONTON, Alberta (PRWEB) July 06, 2020
US customers can now purchase ACAMP’s washable, reusable respirators with over 95% particle filtration efficiency to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The A95™ respirator can be worn anywhere and is an excellent choice for travelers spending extended periods of time in confined spaces, such as aircraft or trains.
ACAMP developed its line of respirator products in April 2020 for the Canadian market, in response to seeing so many unprotected people shopping and travelling. The A95™ respirator and replacement filters, previously only available in Canada, are now available online to US customers at actionbyacamp.us/
A respirator is markedly different from paper or cloth masks as it creates a base-seal around the wearer’s nose and mouth which forces airflow primarily through the front filter. Respirators filter two ways: protecting wearers from inhaling the virus, and preventing wearers from exhaling it to loved ones and co-workers.
The A95™ filters provide 95% particle filtration efficiency, are washable and reusable, and the respirator can be easily adjusted for comfort and fit. The respirator body is made of thermoplastic and is available in one adult size at this time.
The A95™ respirator’s efficiency was tested against commercially available N95-rated models by the respiratory aerosol mechanics team at the University of Alberta Faculty of Engineering. They rated the ACAMP A95™ filters at similar levels of filtration efficiency as N95 filters.
