Cam Lock trials filtration masks at Surrey care home

Personal protection specialist Cam Lock is trialling a high-standard air filtration mask at a Surrey care home.

The manufacturer has supplied the Huntington and Langham Estate in Hindhead, Surrey, with multiple Cam Lock Matrix full face mask respirators.

The company said the masks serve to provide the highest level of protection from airborne particulates, helping to keep both staff and residents safe from the threat of Covid-19.

Protecting the nose, mouth and eyes the one-size-fits-all masks are fitted with a P3 high efficiency particulate filter, which protects against the micro-organism particles of coronavirus.

With a high-quality distortion-free optical visor, glasses wearers can incorporate them via integration of a prescription spectacle frame.

“Since we became aware of the urgent need for PPE equipment to all health and front line workers, Cam Lock have ramped up production of our Matrix full face mask respirator to meet the national demand for supply of respiratory protection equipment to all these special people,” said technical director John Swatton.

“The team at the Huntington & Langham Estate have been very complimentary in their feedback with respect to the Matrix face mask in that it has, excellent vision and speech transmission, breathing resistance is as if you’re not wearing a mask at all, and it makes them feel safe, secure and confident in being protected from being contaminated should a resident become ill with coronavirus,” he added.

Huntington & Langham Estate director Charlie Hoare said: “Cam Lock’s Matrix masks maximise protection, greatly reducing the risk of any airborne viral particles spreading around the home, while they’re especially important when it comes to reducing the risks involved with aerosol generating procedures carried out by staff.”
