How do I know if I’m wearing my OPROtec PPE face mask properly?

If you have your mask on properly, the white, smooth side will be next to your face and the (blue) colour facing outwards. You will know that your mask is the correct way up if the metal nosepiece is at the top and the pleats face downwards away from your nose.

Can I reuse my OPROtec PPE face mask?

Masks are intended for single use. They should not be removed and then replaced and used again. Masks must be replaced if they become damp and must be replaced immediately in the following two instances:

  1. When the mask is contaminated with pollutants such as blood or body fluids.
  2. When the mask is damaged.
Can I share my OPROtec PPE face mask with anyone else?

No. Masks are designed for single use by one person and should be disposed of after wear.

Should I still practise social distancing when I’m wearing a face mask?

Yes, social distancing should still be observed together with other government guidance such as frequent hand washing or sanitising. 

What should I do with my face mask when I’ve finished wearing it?

Handle the mask by the ear loops and do not touch the fabric. Place it in a plastic bag and then dispose of it in a lidded bin. Finally, wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds.

What is the shelf-life of an OPROtec PPE Face Mask?

Our face masks have a shelf life of 10 years.

Are your face masks latex free?

Yes, our OPROtec PPE face masks are latex-free.

What is the size of your face masks?

Our face masks measure 175mm x 95mm.

How can I wash my OPROtec products?

We want your OPROtec Sports Protection product to give you a lifetime’s service, but to do that it needs a little help from you when it comes to caring for it.

Hand washing is definitely best to protect the techno fabrics in your support or sleeve. Use a mild detergent without bleaching agents, take out any removable hinges and avoid using fabric conditioner. Please don’t put your OPROtec sports protection product in a tumble dryer as you won’t be too happy with the results!

Allow your sleeve or support to air dry thoroughly before using it again.

Regular washing following these instructions will ensure a long-lasting OPROtec product.

Please note, PPE products are single-use only and should not be washed.
