Face Masks KN95

Use of face masks designated KN95

A substantial number of face masks, claiming to be of KN95 standards, provide an inadequate level of protection and are likely to be poor quality products accompanied by fake or fraudulent paperwork. These face masks may also be known as filtering facepiece respirators.

KN95 is a performance rating under the Chinese standard GB2626:2006, the requirements of which are broadly the same as the European standard BSEN149:2001+A1:2009 for FFP2 facemasks. However, there is no independent certification or assurance of their quality and products manufactured to KN95 rating are declared as compliant by the manufacturer.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) cannot be sold or supplied as PPE unless it is CE marked. The only exception is for PPE that is organised by the UK Government for use by NHS or other healthcare workers where assessments have been undertaken by HSE as the Market Surveillance Authority.

With us coming to the end of the week 5 of lockdown in UK due to the Coronavirus, many people are missing their visits to the gym during our social distancing rules.

For many of us going to the gym, is not only exercise but it is also the place we meet friends, it’s a place to turn off for an hour and a chance to release our stresses and frustrations from the world.

So, how do we cope during these times, when we don’t have access to gyms and fitness centres?

Personal trainers and instructors have been offering online workouts, which gives us the chance to connect with those that we would have been working out with in a virtual class or logging in later, when you’ve finished the “day in the office”.

In these unprecedented times, it’s a different way of working out for us, but it gives the opportunity to keep fit and interact with others in a different way.

It’s often more difficult to remain focused on these classes, as we’re used to having the instructor keeping the class motivated, having a friend to train along with and enjoy some social interaction.

With this in mind it’s a good idea to try and schedule your workout with a friend, whether this be online if you are self-isolating or if you’re able to go outside for your allowed hour on a social distancing run, cycle or even a gentle walk, to keep our bodies active during these times.

There are many solutions that we can use at home from the cheapest solution of an exercise mat and some dumbbells, right up to cycle machines or multi-gyms.

So check out Purchase It Home Fitness and take advantage of a 20% discount on us !
