PAFtec CleanSpace® Respirator embarks on Japanese Mask Standard Accreditation

Japan is a sophisticated and well-informed mask wearing market. Our respirator, which has been undergoing field trials in Japan for the last 3 months, has now been submitted to an independent testing house for accreditation to the Japanese International Standard (JIS). Our aim is to support the Japanese re-construction workers, health professionals and local authorities currently operating in the Tsunami hit areas north of Tokyo. Our trials and recent trip to the Safety Equipment Trade Fair in Dusseldorf highlighted the urgent need for high performance respiratory protection that is comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time.
