The Best KN95 Face Mask
With so many different KN95 face masks to choose from, how do you know you are getting a quality mask? This is the questions millions of people ask themselves everyday. Before you can answer it, first you must ask some basic questions and understand some basic features of the KN95 face mask.
What is a KN95 Face Mask?
KN95 (N95 or KF94) is the rating given to a mask that can filter out 95% of PM2.5 such as dust, pollen, pollution, viruses and particulates in the air.
Does it Matter Which Mask I Buy?
One of the most important considerations is fit. If you do not have a mask the fits your face properly or is too lose, you may be compromising the efficacy of the protection offered by your KN95 face mask. One of the most important considerations is the length of the ear strap.
Most KN95 face masks come with an 18cm length ear strap. For many people, this may be too small and result in a poor and painful fit. KN95 face masks also come in 19cm and 20cm ear strap lengths so you may want to ask what length of strap you are buying.
What if My Ears Hurt From the Ear Straps?
We recommend purchasing a mask extender. These are small rubber extenders that allow you to attach the ear loops on hooks and wrap your mask around the back of your head. It is one of the easiest ways to relieve ear pressure.
Does Color Matter for My KN95 Mask?
No it does not. By far, the most popular color is black. This is because it does not show dirt or wear stains and are less obtrusive and reflective. After black KN95 face masks is white the charcoal. However, the color should have no impact on the efficacy of your mask.
