Respiratory protection – Alpha S respirator

Alpha Solway says its new Alpha S respirator is specifically designed to fit smaller and slimmer face shapes and is the first disposable mask with a unique inner face seal that fits snugly to the chin, delivering an excellent fit.

The company says the mask was developed on the back of its involvement in the industry-led Fit2Fit scheme for respiratory protection, and to address the common problems experienced with conducting face-fit testing. Alpha Solway says the Alpha S mask achieves excellent results specifically on smaller face shapes and thus suggests organisations that use it can be confident that the mask will offer excellent fit and a higher pass rate in fit tests.

The addition of the Alpha S to the Alpha Solway range of respiratory products means the company can now offer a comprehensive set of solutions, catering for the vast majority of individuals, regardless of their face size or shape.
