Vogmask is a superior product for now and the future, rendered modern to awaken public hope, to express the public self, and to emerge from the trance of accepting an inherited future.

Our vision is simple: make the most beautiful, highest efficiency, most comfortable and best manufactured reusable consumer masks on the market.

 

 Functional description

Respirators are PPE and are designed and used to reduce the potential exposure of the wearer to airborne hazardous contaminants.

 

The following is a functional description of the Vogmask and its intended use:

  • Particle filtering half mask to reduce exposures to airborne particulate matter.
  • Helps to protect from non-oil airborne particles such as dust, pollen, shavings, particles found in air pollution, and other airborne contaminants
  • Intended for general public use

Certain limitations apply to the use of the Vogmask product:

  • Follow fitting instructions carefully; filtering efficiency depends on proper fitting.
  • Do not use Vogmask for chemicals, gases, vapors, oils, aerosols, oil based particles, or extremely high particle concentrations.
  • Do not use Vogmask in oxygen deficient or explosive atmospheres.
  • Does not eliminate the risk of illness, diseases, or infection.
  • Leakage will occur if facial hair passes under the face seal.
  • This product does not guarantee protection from illness or any harmful substance.

 Intended use

 Vogmask is for general use to protect from particles such as PM 2.5, pollen, dust, and other airborne contaminants.  The carbon filter layer provides deodorization.  Recent research indicates that low cost carbon filters have effectiveness in protecting from ozone.

Maintenance

 The maintenance requirement for Vogmask is to mildly rinse outer and inner layer with water and small dot of mild liquid detergent, rinse again and hang  to fully dry before storage.

 

Respiratory Protective Device : Filtering half masks to protect against particles.  

 Vogmask is Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety Certified KF-94, GB2626-2006 Personal Protective Equipment Certified KN95, and CE CERTIFIED Class III Complex Medical Device - filtering half masks for particles, EN 149:2001 + A1:2009 for EU market.  Vogmask conforms to NIOSH N99 filter efficiency as stated in 42 CFR Part 84.181.

Vogmask is certified as Personal Protective equipment [PPE] Reusable

 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) means:

Equipment designed and manufactured to be worn or held by a person for protection against one or more risks to that person’s health or safety.

 China: PPE means Personal protection equipment.

Respirators are PPE and are designed and used to reduce the potential exposure of the wearer to airborne hazardous contaminants.

These products meet the requirements of recently amended European Standard EN 149:2001 + A1:2009, filtering facepiece respirators for use against particles. They should be used to protect the wearer from solid and non-volatile liquid particles only.

Products are classified by filtering efficiency and maximum total inward leakage performance (FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3), also by usability and clogging resistance.

Performance tests in this standard include filter penetration; extended exposure (loading) test; flammability; breathing resistance and total inward leakage. Reusable products are also subjected to cleaning, storage and mandatory clogging resistance tests. A full copy of EN 149:2001+A1:2009 can be purchased from your national standards body.

 MATERIAL COMPONENTS:

Outer faceblank (Microfiber or organic cotton)

Exhalation valve (s)

Vogmask is Certified Reusable under International Directive:

 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Directive      89/686/EEC

                             Article/Annex/Level number: PPE Article 10 & 11A

Directive Name:       General Product Safety Directive 2001/95 EC 

Standard for Testing: EN149:2001 + A1:2009 FFP1 and FFP2 R

 The particle and carbon filtering layers are sewn into the middle layers of the mask and are not replaceable.

 

What is the useful life of Vogmask?

 Vogmasks may be reused until the Use by Date marked on the packaging.  The particle filtering middle layer textile is efficient for three (3) years from the date of manufacture.

 Once the middle layer particle filter is saturated with microscopic particles, there is an increase in breathing resistance and the mask should be replaced.  In very poor air quality this can occur in as little as 3-5 months.

 If any part or assembly of the mask is damaged, or if a good seal is not achievable, discard the mask.

What are the maintenance and washing instructions?

Mildly rinse outer and inner layer with water, add a small drop of liquid soap (like dishwashing liquid), rinse again and hang until fully dry before storage. 

 

What is the disk on the side of the mask? The disk on the side of the mask is a one-way exhalation valve designed to add comfort to the wearer by the free exit of moisture and CO2.  Valved respirators protect the wearer from inhalation of airborne hazardous contaminants. 

 

Where is the filter and can it be replaced?

The particle filtering textile and the carbon filter are sewn into the middle layers of the mask.  Both filter layers are the same dimension as the outer face blank.  The filter is not replaceable.  After the useful life of the mask, the entire mask should be replaced. 

 

 

Can the valve be taken off for washing?

No, the valve is permanently heat sealed to the mask. Rinsing the valve will clear it of microscopic dust and particles.  If the valve on your mask is not securely affixed to the mask, do not use the mask.  Contact us for a replacement.

If the particle filtering half mask is designed to be re-usable, the materials used shall withstand the cleaning procedures to be specified by the
manufacturer.    PASS

After cleaning the re-usable filtering half mask shall satisfy the penetration requirement of the relevant class.  PASS
