With so much noise in the media over Government guidelines and face coverings in the fight against Covid-19, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the choices available to us. There are disposable paper face masks, washable fabric face masks and now reusable barrier face masks with filters. But which one is right for you? DenPro is here to assist with your decisions on face coverings.
Let us start with the cheap and cheerful disposable paper face masks. However, when we say ‘cheerful’, they are not actually as light-hearted as we may think. Sold in multiple packs and relatively inexpensive, the disposable paper masks seem like a quick and easy solution on the surface. However, the disposable nature of these face coverings means that over a period of time, the re-purchase of throw-away masks can be quite high. Also, the negative impact on the environment is of concern. We have all been working so hard to recycle materials and act responsibly when it comes to the disposal of products. Don’t let Covid-19 get in our way of looking after our planet!
The fabric face masks on the other hand are washable so can be re-used time and time again. They are more expensive than the disposable paper face masks but are available in various colours and patterns depending on the fabric choice. In terms of protecting others and preventing the spread of viral infections (including Covid-19) to others, this is debatable.

Our bubl customers are happy with their new barrier face mask:
“Wore my bubl to the shops for the first time today. Very easy to breathe, excellent fit too. Miles better than regular facemasks, especially if you’re wearing one for hours on end. Excellent product!”
"Well today I got to use the Bubl for the first time. I could breathe/talk really well whilst using and my clients could even see my mouth as it’s transparent. Also, my glasses didn't steam up either so it's all good. Defo a great buy folks and it’s a type ll mask CE approved."
“Received my bubl mask yesterday, as a hairdresser that wears glasses all masks made me claustrophobic and glasses steamed up. Wearing my mask today fab!!!! Thank 5*”
For even greater protection and a perfect fit around nose and mouth, opt for an FFP3 respirator mask. It comes equipped with enhanced filters so results in better breathability. It does however require a fit test to ensure it is secure and comfortable to be worn all day, every day.
