Documentation


EN 149: 2001 + A1:2009 - Respiratory Protective Devices – Filtering half masks to protect against particles

European Standard for filtering half-masks. It contains laboratory tests to check the conformity with resistance to impacts, to cleansers and disinfectants, to temperature to flame and with respiratory resistance. With A!:2009 amendment, filtering dust masks are now classified as either single use/single shift (NR) or reusable/more than 1 shift (R).

There are 3 classes of masks as defined by the standard:

  • FFP1 = Lowest class of protection
  • FFP2 = Higher class of protection
  • FFP3 = Highest level of protection

There are three mandatory tests conducted under the standard.

1. TOTAL INWARD LEAKAGE

This test measures the probability of the respiratory mask to protect the wearer against potential hazards.
A test subject wearing the particle mask walks in an enclosed test room, with a constant concentration of sodium chloride aerosol. While the subject breathes, the air inside the mask is sampled and analysed to determine which % of sodium chloride could pass through the mask.

Class

Inward Leakage %

FFP1

Not greater than 22%

FFP2

Not greater than 8%

FFP3

Not greater than 2%

The lower the percentage the higher the protection

2. PENETRATION OF FILTER MATERIAL

The goal of this test is to measure the filtering power of the masks.
This test is carried out by exposing a dummy head with a mask to 120mg of 2 test aerosols (Sodium chloride & Paraffi n oil). The standard defines the maximum admitted penetration % of the 2 aerosols, for FFP1/FFP2 and FFP3 masks.

3. BREATHING RESISTANCE

This test assesses the ability of the filtering mask to provide protection while allowing the wearer to breathe easily.

The permitted resistance is lower for FFP1 because it’s a lighter mask and it’s higher for FFP2 and FFP3 as they are thicker.
