Honeywell has announced a new reusable, three-dimensional knitted face cover with replaceable filters for everyday use.

The Honeywell Dual-Layer Face Cover features an innovative 3D knit design that contours to the wearer’s face and is made with a washable material, making it easy to clean.

The face cover also has a hidden pocket that securely holds a Honeywell protective filter made with melt-blown polypropylene, which is similar to the material used in the construction of N95s masks, according to a news release. The replaceable filter reportedly can block up to 97 per cent of 3.0-micron-sized particles (BFE) and 0.1-micron-sized particles (PFE). 

“Honeywell has vast experience in developing respiratory innovations for industrial workers and first responders, and we have leveraged that expertise to bring the Dual-Layer Face Cover to market,” said Praveen Reddy, president of Honeywell’s personal protective equipment business. “When social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, people want a protective face covering that is comfortable, easy-to-clean, stylish and manufactured by an industry-leading safety technology provider.”

The face covering’s base layer features a seamless, 3D knit construction using polyester, nylon and cotton and provides four-way stretch, minimizing gaps and enhancing comfort.

It has a contoured design with adjustable ear straps, a flexible nose clip and ventilation holes for enhanced comfort, function and breathability for most adult face shapes and sizes.
