Remember that the use of single use masks must always comply with the rules of the Danish Working Environment Authority regarding limit values, among other rules - and for a shorter duration: no more than 3 hours per day or until you notice increased breathing resistance.

 

If the single use mask incorporates an "exhalation valve", this helps to reduce heat accumulation inside the mask.
