Gateway Safety's PeakFit® is a NIOSH-approved, N95 air-purifying respirator. The construction of the respirator produces a near custom fit and helps enhance user comfort and safety, the manufacturer states.
The respirator's contoured design and size are intended to help make breathing easier, reduce worker fatigue, and promote compliance, reports the company. The molded nose bridge fits most faces, with no need to pinch a metal nosepiece to achieve a good fit. An internal nose cushion is made with soft, closed-cell foam and helps ensure a snug fit. The integrated, one-piece cloth head strap with buckle is adjustable to fit any head size. The strap is latex-free.
The respirators, which protect against a variety of contaminants, are available in three versions: PeakFit (filtration against aerosols free of oils below permissible exposure limit); PeakFit OV (additional filtration against aerosols free of organic vapors below PEL); and PeakFit AG (additional filtration against aerosols free of organic vapors and acid gases below PEL).
