Spray Masks and Respiratory Equipment
The Symphony Coatings range of respiratory equipment covers solutions for all the types of hazards that are associated with our product range, covering simple solutions of spray masks for dust protection, to full airfed supply systems for the protection of 2 pack products and polyester type coatings. Our respiratory equipment protects the wearer of various hazards and we stock both disposable and reusable spray masks and respiratory equipment.
Whilst working around hazardous substances, there could be a danger of inhaling dusts and other particulates, such as mist, vapours, gases or fumes. The risk of not seeing or smelling most of these substances can cause harm to the your well-being. Using respiratory equipment such as spray masks, respirators, foam and surgical masks are required when exposure (through inhalation) to possible health hazards are present. This protective equipment can prevent lung and tissue damage or irritation, respiratory diseases, cancer and other serious illness and even death.
In all cases it is important to maximise spray booth efficiency and ventilation as this will help in the extraction of solvents and create a
safer and less hazardous area.
