KN95 masks are nearly as good as N95 masks (available here), as the material’s protection level is identical, offering the same 95% filtration of particles. KN95 masks meet Chinese as opposed to US safety testing standards. Protection is slightly lower though as KN95 masks have up to 8% ‘air leakage’ where the mask meets your face. This makes KN95 8% less effective than N95, but still offers significant improvement to your level of protection vs no mask at all or a surgical mask (available here). Available to ship today from the UK.
KN95 masks have no valve, providing better protection for those around you vs masks with valves, if you live with ‘at risk’ people and have concerns that you may potentially be infected. Note this makes them a little harder to breathe in than the N95 mask.
Please note that medical advice is each mask is only effective for 4 hours of protection, so it is worth calculating the quantity you require based on your hours of risk exposure each day and how many months of protection you would like.
We have taken Covid-19 very seriously at MagicMist and implemented extremely rigorous hygiene and cleaning processes – this we why we have continued to offer the same standards of customer care andi fast order fulfilment you have come to expect of us.
We recently took an extra step to issue all our staff with face masks for when they are travelling to our warehouse on public transport, and for our orders fulfilment team as an extra layer of protection. Just like with hand sanitiser, we couldn’t find enough stock in the UK to satisfy our requirements, so we have bought in bulk.
Due to high minimum order quantities, we had to order more than we need and thought we could offer the rest to any of our customers looking for protection against the virus when out and about or living with a suspected infected person. These are available for shipping today.
We have 3 types of masks that offer different levels of protection.
N95 Masks - Premium Protection
KN95 Masks (this product) - Nearly as good as N95 masks, but with up to 8% air leakage
Surgical Masks - Basic protection
We recommend picking the right mask for your risk level and budget. N95 offers premium protection and of all our options we recommend the premium-quality N95 grade. We especially recommend N95 for some of the more risky situations, like if you suspect someone in your home is infected, or when you go to the supermarket. KN95 could perhaps be suitable for a journey on a relatively empty train, and Surgical masks for a run on a street or life around home where risk is lower.
We cannot stress this enough - our aim is not to profiteer or to panic our customers into buying things they hadn’t considered. We are doing this predominantly because we needed to buy a 6 month mask supply for our team and thought we could provide a helpful service to our customers with these, at a time where these items are difficult to find. We are making less profit from these products than we make from our core business, and are being entirely upfront about the level of protection these products offer.
The price we’re charging does reflect the surge in global demand and lack of supply for both the products and air shipping, which has inflated both prices for these items (we paid 500% more than normal to ship these, due to the current severe lack of air transport), we are not making a huge profit.
Masks are only effective if carefully used and handled. It is important not to touch your face or allow the mask to be contaminated when you take it on/off or put it on a surface. Please read the full use-guide we send you with your order.
