10 reasons why RZ Masks are the world's best reusable PPE
Are you growing tired of tossing out single-use surgical masks? Perhaps you’re fed up with your cheap cloth mask that never seems to fit your face correctly. Whatever the reason, if you’re in the market for new PPE, you simply won’t find anything better than an RZ Mask.
Here are the top 10 reasons why RZ Masks are the pinnacle of reusable PPE.
1. They’re designed with safety in mind
Keeping your lungs healthy and free of contaminants should be a top priority, and RZ Masks are the best way to ensure your safety from harmful elements in the environment around you. RZ filters have been tested by world-renowned Nelson Laboratories and proven effective at filtering 99.9% of all particulates down to 0.1 microns in size (which exceeds even the popular N95 standard).
2. They’re incredibly comfortable
Whether you need to wear your mask for 10 minutes or 10 hours, you want it to be as comfortable on your face as possible. RZ masks are made from soft, non-agitating fabrics that can contour to any face.
These masks will stay firmly in place thanks to adjustable stretch bands and a metal nose clip for a perfect 360° seal. They also remain cool in the summer heat and are known to endure the most frigid of winter months.
3. They allow you to breathe easily
One of the biggest pain points for many people is the difficulty of sustained, heavy breathing in other styles of masks. The RZ Mask’s BPA free, plastic exhalation valves are designed to let air out but never in. This keeps the inside of the mask cool and dry for all-day use while ensuring that everything you breathe in is fully filtered for maximum protection.
4. They’re highly cost-effective
While certainly more expensive than most cloth and disposable masks, RZ Masks are an investment that will save you plenty of money in the long term. Put an end to your repeat orders and purchase the last mask you’ll ever need.
As a bonus, each mask comes with two F1 RZ filters, strap extensions, and a storage bag to keep everything neat and clean when not in use.
5. They won’t fog up your glasses
Whether you wear glasses to improve your vision, dim the bright sunlight, or protect your eyes on the job, one of the most frustrating aspects of wearing a mask is the constant lens fog that occurs every time you exhale. With RZ Masks this is no longer an issue, as the valves are strategically designed to direct airflow down and out, away from your glasses.
6. They’re good for the environment
No doubt you’ve seen at least one disposable mask littering your neighborhood lately. Even when disposed of correctly, the sheer abundance of single-use masks is quickly filling up our country’s landfills. The RZ Mask is made with a reusable, durable, and washable outer shell design that will reduce waste and help you do your part to protect the environment.
7. They’re built to last
RZ filters are made with high-quality materials that are designed to stand the test of time. Of course, the life expectancy of each filter can vary greatly, depending on your particulate exposure density and duration, as well as your rate of breathing.
With that in mind, here is how long you can approximately expect your filters to last:
- 20 – 30 hours of continuous use in heavy dust exposure (construction/demolition, off-roading, etc.)
- 30 – 40 hours of continuous use in light dust exposure
- 50 – 60+ hours of continuous use when protecting against airborne contaminants, allergens, pollutants, odors, etc.
8. The filters are simple to replace
There are many reusable masks on the market with filters that are either overly complicated or too time-consuming to replace. RZ Masks were designed to make swapping filters as easy as possible to encourage regular and routine replacement for maximum safety.
To change your RZ filter, simply unscrew the exhalation valves on both sides of the mask. You will now be able to easily detach the old filter and replace it with a new filter. Then gently screw the exhalation valves firmly back in place before use.
9. They’re highly customizable and stylish
Most masks on the market come with a one-size-fits-all, “we hope you like white or blue” offering. With RZ masks, this is far from the case. They come in medium, large, or extra-large to fit any size face, and are available in several different fabrics, including neoprene, mesh, and nylon.
They’re also offered in an assortment of fun colors and patterns, ranging from sky blue and titanium to pink and safety green. And for those who prefer a little extra flair, you can even customize your mask with a variety of valve color options.
