Which mask is right for me?

All we can say is... both types will keep you safe and healthy. The main differences between our PRO and BASIC masks are the lifetime and the treatment that each mask has.

Our Cambridge Mask PRO includes advanced filtration capabilities, which makes this a great option for any individuals who are being exposed to high levels of pollution or are at significant risk from viruses and bacteria, and who wish to invest in the best possible precautionary measure. Our PRO masks are made by combining 3 unique layers; the outer printed layer, the three-ply particulate filter, and an activated carbon cloth which is tested British Military Filtration Technology and filters almost 100% of pollution, gases, 99.6% of viruses and 99.7% of bacteria and last for up to 340 hours. The PRO mask is also treated with silver to specifically protect the wearer against bacteria and viruses.

Our BASIC mask is a mask that we manufactured to complement our powerful PRO masks and to allow even more people to gain access to clean air, with an affordable price. Our BASIC mask still offers a fantastic level of filtration, which is perfect for the daily usage of individuals who are looking to protect themselves from any harmful matter in the air that they breathe. Our BASIC mask lasts for up to 90 hours of active use.
