URBAN AIR MASK 2.0

A LOOK UNDER THE HOOD OF URBAN AIR MASK 2.0

The key behind a comfortable and protecting air filter mask lies in all the details that together form the whole final mask. The Airinum Urban Air Mask 2.0 is built around 3 foundations - protection, comfort, and design. Below we’ll explain all of these three building-blocks in detail, so you’ll understand why the Airinum Urban Air Mask 2.0 is something unique.

 

TESTED AND CERTIFIED FILTER TECHNOLOGY

The mask filter is essential to the protection. When you breathe through the Urban Air Mask 2.0, air passes through five important layers of filter media before it reaches your lungs. Each air filter media layer has different properties to filter particles of different sizes.

  • Outside PP layer: Outside filter wrapping in a durable finish
  • Active Carbon Layer: Reduces gases and odors.
  • 1st Electro Charged Layer: Filters larger pm10 pollution, pollen and other allergens
  • 2nd Electro Charged Layer: Filters smaller pm2.5 pollution, dust and bacteria
  • Inside PP Layer: Inside filter with ultra-smooth and skin-friendly finish

The multi-layer filter technology is tested at the RISE R&D center in Sweden showing a 98% protection rate against particles down to the size of 0.3μm and 99.99% against pm2.5 pollution. The Urban Air Mask 2.0 is also tested and certified for international pollution mask standards, similar to the N95 mask and N95 respirator standards.

DESIGN AVAILABLE IN 4 SIZES 

The sizing system has been developed using key anthropometric measurements of the human head as well as through testing sessions with large distributions of people with unique facial shapes. The sizing system is divided into a Large, Medium and Small size, together with an XS size as a kids mask. If you're unsure of your size have a look at our size guide.

 

 

SECURE SEALING AND ANTI-FOGGING SYSTEM

To ensure full protection when using a breathing mask, the sealing on the face is key. Studies show that leakage commonly occurs in the nasal area when using a pollution mask.

The Urban Air Mask 2.0 is thereby especially designed with a 3D memory nose-foam and an adjustable nose clip. These features minimize air leakage on the nasal area, regardless of one's facial shape. The 3D-memory nose-foam is also important as an anti-fogging system, enabling the mask to be used when wearing glasses.

To ensure that the Urban Air Mask 2.0 is worn correctly and a good sealing is achieved, please follow our user guide.

 

 

DUAL EXHALATION VALVE VENTILATION SYSTEM 

The Urban Air Mask 2.0 is designed with two exhalation valves acting as a ventilation system, making the air pollution mask comfortable to wear. When exhaling, the two valves allow warm, moist and carbon dioxide filled air to be ventilated out of the space between the face and the mask. This would otherwise build up inside the face mask, causing discomfort. When inhaling, the valves are blocked, making sure all inhaled air travels through the mask filter.

The Airinum exhalation valves are specially designed to not spread exhaled air horizontally outwards, like when you are normally exhaling. The valve cap pushes the exhaled air to the sides of the valves. This reduces the spread of exhaled air. This is a similar logic to a surgical mask that doctors or dentists wear, which do not completely seal but direct the airflow away from the patient.

 

 

EXHALATION VALVE STOPPERS TO DISABLE THE VENTILATION FUNCTION 

The Exhalation Valve Stoppers are optional to use and can replace the Valve Caps on the Urban Air Mask 2.0. The Exhalation Valve Stoppers should be used when you want to plug the ventilation function of the mask. 

The Exhalation Valve Stoppers have been tested at RISE R&D Center in Sweden with evidence showing that it will block 99% of the exhaled air, diminishing the risk of respiratory droplets escaping into the ambient air. 

The Exhalation Valve Stoppers are attached to the valves in the same manner as the Valve Caps. The difference between the two is:

(1) The Exhalation Valve Stoppers have an additional ring inside which closes the blue silicone disc on the valve and thereby disables the ventilation function.  

(2) The print on the outside of the Exhalation Valve Stopper indicates that the valve function has been disabled.
