More vents mean filters last longer

PROTECT yourself against dust and unpleasant smells in poultry houses by using the Air Ace safety respirator available from Rainbow Valve, Stanton, Bury St Edmunds.

The design of the respirator is said to allow easy breathing through separate inhalation and exhalation vents. This enables filters to last longer than conventional disposable masks as exhaled air does not pass back through the filter but through the bottom, claims Rainbow Valve.

Two types of filters are available for use with the mask – the P2 Microfilter and the active carbon odour filter.

Price of the Air Ace kit, complete with storage box and one type of each filter is £39 plus VAT and delivery. Packs of 10 filters cost £25 (01359-250238).
