3M offers a wide range of disposable respirators, reusable half and full face masks and powered & supplied air respirators for protection against gases, vapours and particulates. You can choose the protection level, comfort, and maintenance requirements you need to work safely and comfortably.

Disposable respiratory protection

3M offers a wide selection of CE approved disposable respirators, also known as disposable masks or filtering facepiece respirators to help protect against particulates. With models available in FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3, you can be sure to find the right disposable respirator for your needs.

3M™ Aura™ Particulate Respirator 9300+Gen3. Get comfortable and reliable FFP2 and FFP3 breathing protection in hazardous work environments. This is the third generation of the best-selling 3M Aura flat fold particulate respirator, featuring the original 3-panel, flat-fold design. This range of particulate respirators are made using 3M Advanced Electret (filter) Media (AEM), a high-performance material that’s been engineered for easy, unrestricted breathing. 

Reusable respiratory protection

3M provides a full range of reusable respirators with half mask or full facepiece options to protect against particulates, gases and vapours.

3M™ Secure Click™ HF 800 Series Reusable Half Mask Respirators helps protect against particulates and a wide variety of gases and vapours when used with approved 3M™ Secure Click™ cartridges and filters. Available in three sizes, 3M’s respirators come with an optional speaking diaphragm to help provide easier communication while you work.

Breathability: Greater breathability and comfort provided by the world’s first quad flow cartridge system.

Simplicity: The 3M™ Secure Click™ Series features a quick, simple cartridge/filter connection. It works just like a seat belt. Simply align the connections and push until you hear a click.

Comfort: Designed with smart, intuitive features, this respirator helps provide comfort without compromise.

Powered & supplied air respirators

In hazardous environments, powered air respirator systems can help enhance wearer comfort. 3M™ Versaflo™ turbos automatically adjust airflow to compensate for filter loading to deliver the same amount of filtered air throughout an entire shift—helping to keep your employees comfortable.

When comfort is designed into respiratory protection, workers can focus on the job and not the PPE. 3M™ Versaflo™ Powered Air Respirator Systems are engineered for versatility and customisation, so safety managers can build the system that works for their employees. Choose from a wide range of headtops, breathing tubes and turbo units to create a Powered Air Respirator solution that’s tailored for your environment.

Provide filtered air with a variety of convenient features like intrinsic safety or vibratory alarms. 3M Versaflo turbo units include TR-300+, TR-600 and TR-800.

Welding Protection

Welders need durability, reliability, and safety. 3M strive to bring you the best in optics, comfort, productivity, lighter weight, and more.

Based on extensive input from welders working at high amperages that need to grind frequently, the 3M™ Speedglas™ Heavy-Duty Welding Helmet G5-01 is created to be adaptable to an individual’s needs and situation.

Introducing the world’s first curved auto-darkening filter with the 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmet G5-02. Featuring one of the newest innovations from 3M™ Speedglas™ – Curved Glass Technology. The welding filter follows the curved shape of your head and is more in line with the range of your peripheral vision. As a TIG welder, we know you value precision, visibility and comfort. At 3M, we listened to the needs of TIG welders and designed 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmet G5-02 especially for you. The latest, high-end, inverter-based TIG machines offer incredibly stable arcs. With our most advanced electronics ever and four arc sensors, the G5-02 welding filter reliably switches even at very low (e.g., 1 amp) TIG settings, meeting the new pr ISO 16321 “TIG+” standards.

You can concentrate on precision welding tasks when you are focused on the work, not the equipment. We’ve made G5-02 as light as possible, with an extremely thin, curved filter glass pack. What’s more, you’ll notice that the centre of gravity is closer to the centre of your head, giving you better weight distribution. And for the slim helmet, we created a new exhaled air venting design to reduce heat and humidity, designed to help you feel more comfortable.
