The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that respiratory diseases cost the country $12 billion annually, with nearly $3.5 billion attributed to healthcare expenses - including hospitalization, medication and physicians' fees. However, it also reports that one of the best ways to prevent respiratory diseases is through better use of respiratory protective equipment in the workplace.
Every day across Canada, workers are expected to work in close proximity to harmful dusts, vapors, droplets and other airborne contaminants. In many of these instances, a simple dust mask will cover the mouth and nose sufficiently and help filter out any potentially aggravating particulates. However, in other instances - such as the sandblasting, grinding, cutting and drilling of materials that give off dust containing crystalline silica, for example - a more robust respirator may be required.
Knowing which contaminants you and/or your employees might be exposed to goes a long way toward helping you make the right choice about the types of respiratory protective equipment you'll need. For instance, in the case of potential exposure to crystalline silica dust - a known carcinogen and cause of chronic silicosis - choosing the right respirators and replacement filters can literally save lives.

As your respiratory protective equipment supplier, we offer multiple types of respiratory PPE equipment and accessories suitable for different working environments. Depending on the nature of your job, one type of respiratory PPE may work more effectively than another.
Disposable face masks have different purposes and levels of respiratory protection that determine their categorization. While you might call any disposable mask a dust mask, some disposable masks offer enough protection to count as respirators. A dust mask will protect the surrounding area from droplets from the wearer. On the other hand, a respirator has the materials and certification to defend against certain hazards. At Construction Fasteners and Tools, we include details about each of our disposable masks' protection levels in the product title and description.
We sell full-face and half-mask reusable respirators that you can choose from based on your protection requirements. The right level of mask coverage for your next project will depend on:
Respirator filters come in nine different classes that fall into three series - N, R and P - depending on their resistance to oil mists. An N series filter works in environments free from oil mists.

Cartridges for respirators filter gases and vapours, with some products also filtering particulates. We sell these cartridge types:
