Respirators give dusts the brush-off

HAZARDS of breathing in certain farm substances are well documented, and there is a host of available protective equipment to combat those risks.

Latest firm to launch a new range of farm respirators is London-based Martindale Protection.

For dusts from feeds, manures, etc, Martindales Flatmate and Guardian respirators provide protection, while the 333, F100 and M-18695 masks are designed for more nuisance dusts.

Certain models in the Flatmate and Guardian range are also suitable for most welding applications (0181-450 8561).
