Disposable Face Mask
The Type 1 disposable face masks come in packs of 50. They are designed to be used and then thrown away. The soft woven design esnures a comfortable fit. Our P1 face masks are suitable for use in a variety of settings including communities and residential settings. They are worn to prevent and control the spread of infection and disease.
We also sell the Type 2 medical grade disposable face mask.
How to wear a disposable face mask
Please follow the instructions displayed on the back of the face mask packaging which will tell you how to correctly fit them around your mouth, nose and chin and secure with an ear loop fastening. It is important to wash your hands before and after fitting the mask. Once fitted on the face, you should avoid touching the mask with your hands to help reduce the risk of hand to mask transmission. If you do touch the mask, you should wash your hands again. Our disposable masks should be thrown away with household waste immediately after use.
When to wear a face mask
It is a mandatory requirement to wear a face covering in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible. This includes public transport and in shops from 24 July 2020.
Wearing a face mask may help reduce the risk of transmission of disease to others. Regular handwashing, covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, are still important. Use of hand sanitiser is also important when you don’t have access to soap and water. Visit the Health and Safety Executive website for more information on the use of face masks and face coverings.
