Protection

Narvalo Urban Mask filters 99.9% of pollutants, smog, viruses, bacteria, pollen and allergens that are present in the air. Furthermore it can filter out odors thanks to a layer of active carbon!

The Narvalo Urban Mask is equipped with a filtration technology capable of filtering 99.9% of pollutants, smog, viruses, bacteria, pollen, allergens and odors that are present in the air. Even though long term and in-depth studies regarding this invisible threat are limited, the Urban Mask can be considered as a device offering maximum protection.

Narvalo Mask is currently being certified. We use products and materials from the high-end product segment of BLS, boutique company based in Milano with over 50 years of experience in the production of PPE for respiratory protection.

Le maschere NARVALO URBAN MASK sono state progettate con BLS e testate nei laboratori BLS, ottenendo valori superiori a una FFP3 standard. Come descritto nei report, sono stati eseguiti test di filtrazione e resistenza respiratoria e un test specifico (chiamato fit-test) per validare la tenuta sul volto (FIT FACTOR >100 per una FFP3). In campo industriale le aziende, prima di scegliere ed acquistare un modello/marca di mascherine, eseguono i fit-test sui propri operatori per testare la tenuta sul volto e garantire quindi la massima protezione, in base al livello di protezione richiesto.

Tutti i test effettuati per NARVALO vengono eseguiti da BLS in fase di sviluppo di nuovi prodotti e in fase di controllo qualità dei prodotti. Ad oggi, insieme a BLS, siamo in contatto con l'ente certificatore accreditato per ottenere la certificazione EN 149:2001+A1:2009 (purtroppo causa Covid le tempistiche di certificazione si sono allungate).

Per quanto riguarda la durata del filtro, BLS per le sue mascherine non dichiara la durata di un mese in quanto in campo industriale la concentrazione di inquinante nell’aria è estremamente più elevata, al di sopra del TLV (infatti è OBBLIGATORIO l’utilizzo di DPI) e l’operatore indossa la maschera per un intero turno di lavoro, quindi il filtro si satura molto più velocemente. In campo urbano, invece, si hanno percentuali molto inferiori, al di sotto del TLV (difatti NON è obbligatorio l’utilizzo di DPI) e l’utilizzo è molto meno intenso.

È stato quindi stimato, per ogni singolo filtro, un utilizzo di circa 100h in ambiente urbano (con filtro integro).
