WHAT PROTECTION DO OUR MASKS OFFER?
Masks play a fundamental role in protecting us from airborne viral particles and respiratory droplets that come from coughing, sneezing or talking.
All our masks are manufactured and certified in accordance with current European regulations UNE0065 & European Law CWA17553. However, customer safety and peace of mind is paramount to our company philosophy here at Xula so in addition to the above all our masks have been subject to further scrutinised testing:
1. Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) – Innovative nanopore transparent fabric has been designed to filter particles (such as microorganisms/viruses) and not gases (such as oxygen) offering high breathability whilst delivering best in class protection of >95%
2. Aerosol Filtration Efficiency – This test simulates the effectiveness of blocking airborne viral particles with Xula masks achieving a filtration rate above 96%.
3. Particle Filtration Efficiency – This test simulates the effectiveness of blocking of respiratory droplets that come from coughing, sneezing or those that we secrete when speaking. Xula masks achieve a result greater than 95%.
4. Viroblock Efficiency - XULA masks are treated with HeiQ Viroblock which is an intelligent coating designed in Switzerland to provide fabrics with antiviral and antibacterial properties. HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is proven to be 99.99% effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, within 30 minutes of contact. HeiQ won the prestigious Swiss Technology Award 2020 for HeiQ Viroblock
