Do You Know What The Different Levels Of Masks Mean?

Have you ever wondered what the different levels of masks mean? There are three levels to describe face masks; Levels 1, 2, and 3, which are based on the masks barrier protection. Level 1 face masks are general use face masks that are rated for low moisture exposure. They provide more breathability but have a lower level of protection. Level 2 face masks are rated for moderate risk of fluid exposure. Level 2 face masks are used when light to moderate amounts of fluid, spray, and aerosols are present. Level 3 face masks are rated for high risk of fluid exposure. Level 3 face masks provide more protection with less breathability and are ideal where moderate to heavy amounts of fluid, spray, and aerosols are present.
