The Cambridge Mask is capable of blocking particles down to size PM0.3, and thus has the ability to block most smoke particulates. Its vast utility means that first-responders use it, as do those whose lives are affected by wildfire.
Why the PRO mask can be used for Wildfire
Wildfire smoke contains harmful pollutants including PM2.5, that's the size of one-third of the diameter of your hair. These particles are so small that it could enter and lodge themselves deep in your lungs. Breathing in smoke can have immediate health effects, including:
- Trouble breathing normally
- A scratchy throat
- Runny nose
- Irritated sinuses
- Wheezing and shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- An asthma attack
- Fast heartbeat
Cambridge Masks are tested and certified to filter particulate matters from the size of 10, 2.5 and as small as 0.3. Equipped with 3 layer filter technology, Cambridge Masks can help prevent the wearer from smoke inhalation.
FILTERS MORE THAN 99% OF WHAT YOU BREATHE
When properly fitted, the Cambridge Mask blocks particles down to size PM0.3 and offers the following benefits:
- Lightweight & breathable fabric
- Filters 99.6% of all viruses and 99.7% of bacteria
- Filters PM10, PM2.5, PM0.3
- Lasts up to 340 hours of active use (3 – 6 months)
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAYS
“As a person with compromised lungs, protecting myself is of a major concern and these masks do the job, easily and effectively. Especially with the filter that deals with PM2.5....particles, common in the bush fire smoke. They are light to wear and can be washed, a great item, especially in these trying times.”
- Celia Ireland
“The masks were purchased to go into emergency kits, mostly for the intense wildfire season we have here on the west coast. The masks have become quite useful for the current pandemic and allergy season. ”
- Robbert Curry
“Bought a few of the Churchill PRO masks for myself and my girlfriend. We live in California so wildfire smoke is a constant issue - these masks are perfect for that and I love the simple styling. The valve deactivation stickers are great for Covid-19 and I've been wearing this as my base mask this whole time.”
