FFP3 mask / respirator with CE 2163 full certification - highest safety for you.
Our FFP3 masks / FFP3 respirators feature a high-quality 5-layer construction and a specially developed internal nose seal. This ensures an almost perfect seal of the mask to the face of the wearer.
The horizontal elastics are adjustable in length and are not hooked behind the ears, but are guided around the head. This results in a particularly high wearing comfort, as the pressure on the ears, which is often felt to be very unpleasant, is eliminated.
Our FFP3 respirators fache mask have a full CE certificate from a Notified Body and have passed all the necessary tests. They are also certified to EN 149:2001 + A1:2009 and are approved as personal protective equipment (PPE) according to EU regulations. We would be pleased to send you all certificates on request. If this is desired, please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org
What components are our FFP3 masks made of?
Our premium FFP3 respiratory protection masks are made of 5 layers of high quality materials instead of the usual 3 layers. 2 layers are made of high-quality spunbonded nonwovens, 2 layers of meltblown nonwovens and one layer of so-called Heat Air Cotton.
This special combination of materials and the specially developed nose protector results in a filter effect (PFE) of at least 99% and thus meets the EN149:2001+A1:2009 standard.
Why are our FFP2 masks individually packed in a resealable film?
All our FFP3 masks are individually hygienically sealed in transparent film. This prevents other masks from being inadvertently touched/infected/soiled when opening a package. In addition, the masks can be hygienically repacked after use.
Used, possibly infected masks should never simply be put into a trouser pocket or handbag and then possibly reused. There is a high risk of spreading viruses or germs in this way.
How can I recognise a genuine FFP3 mask?
FFP3 masks are not medical devices, but so-called personal protective equipment (PPE). The properties of FFP3 respirators are regulated in the EU standard EN 149:2001+A1 :2009.
The EU has accredited various institutes that are allowed to test such PPE. These so-called "Notified Bodies" are tested by the EU and are subject to strict regulations. Such institutes are for example UNIVERSAL in Turkey, TÜV and DEKRA in Germany, BSI in England.
There are a whole range of other Notified Bodies, e.g. in Spain, Poland, Italy etc. It does not matter where a mask has been certified, as all notified bodies are strictly controlled. It is important that a mask has been checked by one of these notified bodies.
How do I know that an FFP3 mask has been tested by an accredited institute of the EU?
Every FFP3 mask that has been tested by an EU notified body and passed the test can and must have the CE mark printed on it. The CE mark must be followed by a four-digit number. This number allows you to find out at which institute the mask was tested. In order to identify a tested mask correctly, a mask must bear an article number in addition to the CE mark with the four-digit identification number of the testing institute.
This article number must be mentioned in the certificates issued by the institute. The standard to which the mask was tested must also be printed on the mask. This is: FFP3 EN 149:2001+A1 :2009
Which certificates for FFP3 respirators must be available?
If all required prints are available on the mask, you should have the corresponding certificates sent to you. A Certificate of Conformity, an EU Examination Certificate and a declaration of conformity from the manufacturer must be available.
How do I know that the certificates are genuine?
Each certificate has a certificate number which allows the certificate to be validated. The various institutes have usually set up information pages on their homepages where you can enter the certificate numbers for verification. If the certificates are genuine, they will be recognised when you enter them and confirmed as valid.

Respiratory protection masks are divided into different filter classes. The main differentiating criterion is how small the particles that prevent the masks from entering the airways may be and what the percentage retention rate actually is.
The European standard for PPE masks of class FFP2 is approximately equivalent to the international standard KN95. In the course of the corona crisis, it was decided to approve masks of the KN95 standard in a fast-track procedure for the European market for use against Covid 19 in order to have enough masks available to defend against corona. Please note that masks that carry the FFP2 standard and have a four-digit identification number behind the CE logo have been fully tested according to the EC standard and may therefore also be used for other applications such as in trade and industry.
KN 95 is a designation for a Chinese standard.
The Chinese standards GB 2626-2006 "Respiratory protective equipment. Non-powered air-purifying particle respirator" and GB 19083-2010 "Technical requirements for protective face mask for medical use" are from the Standardization Administration of the People's Republic of China (SAC)
There are currently many Chinese masks on the market that do not have FFP2 approval. The Chinese mask type KN95 essentially meets the requirements of the American N95 masks.
Attention: Please make sure that such masks are certified by the German DEKRA or TÜV for use as "Corona Masks"!
MNB stands for Oral-Nose-Covering as a mechanical barrier or "brake" for the transmission of breath droplets or saliva when breathing, coughing or sneezing. These coverings / masks are produced in a wide variety of variations. They are usually produced privately or by textile manufacturers.
Medical Oral and Nasal Protection Masks (MNS), so-called surgical masks, are mainly used in the medical sector such as doctors' surgeries, clinics or in the care sector. They can prevent the spread of saliva or breath droplets from the wearer and are primarily used to protect the other person. Surgical masks belong to the category of medical products and comply with the corresponding legal regulations.
