What can Disposable 3 ply Face Masks be used for?
When someone talks, coughs or sneezes they can release tiny drops into the air that can infect other people.
If the infected person wears a facemask, it can reduce the number of germs that the wearer releases, which can protect other people from becoming sick.
Disposable masks can be used to prevent pathogens and germs being spread by the wearer. This can be required in a number of circumstances including:
How do Face Masks work?

Whilst being light-weight and comfortable. The elasticated loops are latex-free to minimise allergic reactions.

3 Ply Disposable Face Masks – The Benefits
You may have noticed during the COVID-19 pandemic that everyone has their own thoughts and feelings on the matter (like with every world event) and most people react differently.
This is why on your one exercise a day or your essential food shop, you may have noticed some people opting to don a face mask and some people going without.
If you questioned why people were wearing the face masks (even though some may have bought the masks before research after seeing health workers wearing them), here are some real, tangible benefits:
- Your Airways are Protected. This reduces the chance of both transmission and infection. Coughing and Sneezing are ways that Coronavirus can spread if all of the particles have nowhere to go but the Face Mask it helps to stop the spread.
- The chance of someone else contracting it nearby is reduced with the 3 ply Face Mask. And this goes the other way around, if your airways are covered then anyone unintentionally releasing germs in your direction will have less of a chance of infecting you.
- Disposable, rest easy on your ears
- Mouth, Chin and Nose are covered
Why you should avoid a Homemade Mask

The thought of creating DIY Face Masks may have been an idea for some people either before they found this product page or if they are desperately trying to save money (which is understandable given the sense of uncertainty at the moment).
So the question you’ve got to ask yourself is, is it worth the risk? Should you create a mask from scratch, with no experience? If the methodology was the only barrier to completing this task, it wouldn’t be a problem at all.
There is plenty of information that has been published live out there, which details exactly how to do it. Not only that it also gives the reader the opportunity to learn exactly which materials they need to procure (if they don’t have them already) to create one.
With all of this advice freely available online, surely this is a no-brainer? Well, that’s where you’d be wrong. It’s far too risky to cobble together a homemade face mask (even if it appears to be good quality) because of it not being regulated, and this includes both the materials and the process.
It may seem a simple solution to use old bed sheets or a few t-shirts you barely wear anymore and fashion together something that could potentially save yourself and others lives. But the fact is, it’s not worth it. It could end up being more of a hindrance than a help.
One version which has been mocked up is where someone wears a ‘Cloth Face Covering’ which is used time and time again. Top experts in Europe have cited that these could spread the infection even further and potentially add to the problem. It’s especially dangerous for public health when this type is trusted inherently by public transport users.
Not only that, but the effectiveness of homemade versions is also inherently dubious and the chance of them slowing the spread of pathogens compared to their official counterparts. There’s only one real choice if you’re looking to wear a mask.
