Globus Group has launched a new, reusable range of British-made masks for protection against dust containing crystalline silica (RCS) that are more comfortable to wear.
The new Alpha Sentinel range of full face and half-face masks protect against some of the most dangerous respiratory hazards found in the workplace, like RCS, and have been designed for the comfort of workers, especially those wearing the masks for long stints.
Lead Product Designer Josh Moffat says: “When it came to designing the Alpha Sentinel range we really tried to prioritise the end-user. We know that workers are often wearing these masks for long periods of time, and so focusing on comfort and fit means they’re more likely to be worn correctly and workers can be confident they’re getting the right protection.
“Looking beyond fit and comfort, we know another big reason for PPE non-compliance is masks getting too hot, so we’ve designed our unique large exhalation valve to minimise heat and moisture build-up.”
“We really believe that the design innovations we have been able to make with the Alpha Sentinel masks are going to make a huge difference to the workers using these products every day.”
The Alpha Sentinel range comes with a range of changeable filters suitable for use in a wide variety of industry settings and is the first Globus product range to be designed and manufactured entirely in the UK.
