Mark Baker breathes easy inside this new version of the classic Airshield
Here's the dilemma: whether to cover your face with a respirator, feel claustrophobic and risk 'Daft Vader' cracks from your mates, or to look and feel cooler in an ordinary mask and risk inhaling fine and possibly toxic dust along with assault by flying wood chips. Not so much of a dilemma after all, put like that.
So if we take it as a given that a full-face respirator will do what it says on the box, we are left with the gurning pals and our
own personal comfort zone. I have to admit that, while I wear a respirator for safety's sake, up till now I have never relished the prospect of donning it.
I own - and use - the Airshield model that the 230V Air/Pro Airshield Pro Respirator replaces, so am I going to get a positive wearing experience from this new one? I'm looking for comfort, health and efficiency at a reasonable price.
