The Leaders In Personal Air and UV Protection

Styles

We have a variety of different models of Personal Air Filters (PAF) available to meet different needs:

Style Seal

Penumbra

Umbra

The STYLE SEAL, UMBRA and PENUMBRA are all composed of three (3) layers.

  • Fashionable Outer Layer
  • Impervious Middle Layer
  • Soft Inner Layer

STYLE SEAL PAF

STYLE SEAL is the PAF for the fashion conscious.

The STYLE SEAL PAF outer layer is made of specially selected high quality fabrics with superior breathability.   These fabrics allow the air to easily pass into the filters below.

The SUPER SEAL filters are easily replaced from the inside of the PAF so they are hidden from view. A strong mouldable nose piece is sewn attractively inside the trim. The nose piece insures the PAF has the all important individual fit to your unique face insuring a SUPER SEAL to your face every time.

The impervious middle layer insures all the air is directed through the SUPER SEAL filters of your choice so you are only breathing filtered air.

The impervious material also provides 98% UV protection.

The soft inner layer provides comfort while in contact with the user’s face.  Two filter holders are attached to the soft inner layer which can hold any of our various easily replaceable SUPER SEAL filters.  The filters are offered with varying efficiency rates so you can match the filter to the current hazard level of your micro-environment.  Activated carbon can be selected optionally on some filters.  Nano-silver is added for extra bacteria protection on 95 and 99 level filters.

UMBRA

UMBRA, from the Latin word for shadow, is the innermost and darkest part of a shadow, where the light source is completely blocked by the occluding body. We felt this was the perfect name for our most UV protective PAF.

The UMBRA and PENUMBRA provide 99.87% UV protection against the suns harmful UV-A and UV-B rays AND provides the opportunity to add SUPER SEAL personal air protection at any time. All the SUPER SEAL filters fit the UMBRA and PENUMBRA the same way as the STYLE SEAL PAF, offering you the utmost in protection on the job or at play.

The PENUMBRA and UMBRA  are constructed similarly to STYLE SEAL on the inside, but the difference is the outer layer of SPF 50 UV materials and the UV wrap around the head that offers a larger area of UV coverage.

Choose the UV protection that best meets your needs:

  • STYLE SEAL offers protection of the face,
  • PENUMBRA provides full protection of the lower face, ears and neck.
  • UMBRA for full protection of the entire face, ears and neck!  Designed for those who need to be protected the most in hazardous work conditions such as where there is strong sun, wind, dust, or other airborne contaminants.

UMBRA is great for:

  • Sun sensitive people
  • Motorcyclists
  • Biking, hiking, golf and most outdoor sports
  • Hunters and fishermen
  • Outdoor construction and maintenance workers
  • Hunters

PENUMBRA is also great for:

  • Security staff, police and military

FAQs

Why Should I Wear A MASK?

The Short Answer

We look at our STYLE SEAL PAF‘S as “the umbrella for your health”. Everyone has an umbrella by their door or in their closet for a rainy day. Where you store your umbrella is probably determined by how much it rains where you live. If it rains a lot you probably keep it fairly handy. If it doesn’t rain often, you don’t need it and keep it stored away. Using a STYLE SEAL Personal Air Filter (PAF) is very similar. If there are no hazards of pollution or other air contamiunants then by all means enjoy and be thankful for your fresh healthy clean air!! However, you should always be prepared, just like with your umbrella, for when the invisible hazards of pollution or other air contaminants are present. Keep a full stock of STYLE SEAL PAF Filters for your PAF of choice in stock. You never know when the air quality could turn bad. STYLE SEAL is small and lightweight so keep one in your purse or briefcase. You never know when you may need it!

Wearing a STYLE SEAL PAF in typical conditions only costs between $20 and $150 per year. What is the cost of getting sick or shortening your life!!

Remember to BE SAFE, BE SMART, BE STYLISH.

The Longer Answer

We like to take a common sense approach to your personal air safety and hope you will too. Most of you probably are concerned about your health and well being. We watch what we eat, drink bottled water, exercise, get checkups at the doctor and do other healthy activities.

An average average-sized adult male 70 kg (154 lb), inhales approximately 10,800 liters (2,642 gal.) of air a day or more! (.5 ltr X 15 breaths/minute x 60 minutes/hour x 24 hours/day). That’s over 273,700,000 liters (72,118,970 gal.) in a normal life! The Equivalent of 109 Olympic Swimming Pools!!!!!

In comparison we should consume about 2 litres of water per day, only .02% of the amount of air we breathe. Over the last few decades many of us have changed and will only drink bottled water. Are you as careful about the air you breath? If not, does that make sense? We consume 5,000 times more air than water and for the most part take no precaution.

Most of us are aware there can be many health threatening contaminants or pollution in the air. You may live in beautiful mountains or the countryside with clean crisp air and then commute to the city for work. Or you may work in a polluted urban or small town setting. Depending on your workplace this could be frequently. When you are in close contact with others such as in an elevator, train, plane, bus, checkout line or elsewhere you are at risk. Your hazard risk can change depending on the time of year, pollution levels in your micro-environment and the current flu rate, putting you at greater risk.

Most of us when we were young were hopefully taught to cover our mouth when we cough or sneeze. Better yet, let the articles below explain to you why you should wear a STYLE SEAL PAF if you are sick. Basically, be polite since oft times we may forget to cover our mouths or not do as good a job as possible.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) of the USA:

“People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away.

Most experts think that flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk.

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose.”

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/spread.htm.

However, new research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology using slow-motion photography finds that sneezes droplets can travel much farther than first thought.

FRIDAY, Feb. 12, 2016 (HealthDay News) — If you think your sneezes merely emit a delicate spray of tiny droplets into the space around you, think again.

New research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology using slow-motion photography finds that, instead, sneezes expel a sticky sheet of fluid that first balloons and then breaks apart into long, viscous filaments.

Those filaments eventually do separate into a mist of fine droplets, said a team led by Lydia Bourouiba, who runs MIT’s Fluid Dynamics of Disease Transmission Laboratory.

“What we saw was surprising in many ways,” she said in a university news release. “We expected to see droplets coming out fully formed from the respiratory tract. It turns out that’s not the case at all.”

All of this research could lead to more effective ways to reduce the spread of illness, her team said.

“t’s important to understand how the process of fluid breakup, or fluid fragmentation, happens,” Bourouiba explained. Knowing how sneezing disperses droplets can help scientists map the spread of infections and identify people who may be “super-spreaders,” she said.

In prior research reported in 2014, her team found that coughs and sneezes emit “clouds” of gas that spread infectious droplets more than 200 times farther than would happen if they were just separate drops.

In the new study, Bourouiba’s team used high-speed cameras to record more than 100 sneezes from volunteers, who had their noses tickled to produce the sneeze. The photos — comprising a time span of under 200 milliseconds — were able to capture the precise moment when saliva is expelled from the mouth and launched into the air.

Sneezes also varied from person to person, the study found, because some people have more elastic saliva than others. For sneezers with the stickier saliva, expelled fluid tended to keep its stringy, filament shape longer, forming beads that in time became droplets.

All of this is important to help scientists “understand how the process of fluid breakup, or fluid fragmentation, happens,” Bourouiba said, and “the resulting prediction of the downstream range of contamination.”

She is currently setting up a special chamber in which she and medical research partners will be able to visualize sneezes, coughs and other methods of disease transmission.

“One of the important goals I have for the lab is to tackle cold and influenza,” Bourouiba said. “Sometimes the symptoms are difficult to distinguish. In the coming year, at different cold and influenza seasons, we will be recruiting human subjects whom we can work with to see them in infection and in health.”

The ultimate goal of the sneeze droplet research is to better predict and prevent the spread of disease.

“The way transmission routes are being quantified even today still rely on the traditional way that has prevailed for hundreds of years, which is talking to people to survey who they talked to, where did they go, etc.,” Bourouiba said.

“There are clear limits to the accuracy of the data acquired via this process, and we are trying to have more precise measures of contamination and ranges to root disease control and prevention strategies in the physical sciences,” she explained.

The study was published in the journal Experimental Fluids.

It is important to know that STYLE SEAL, PENUMBRA and UMBRA are not medical devices and do not claim to prevent the spread or eliminate the risk of disease or illness. Use at your own risk.

Also, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the USA:

“Health studies have shown a significant association between exposure to fine particles and premature death from heart or lung disease.

Fine particles can aggravate heart and lung diseases and have been linked to effects such as: cardiovascular symptoms; cardiac arrhythmias; heart attacks; respiratory symptoms; asthma attacks; and bronchitis. These effects can result in increased hospital admissions, emergency room visits, absences from school or work, and restricted activity days. Individuals that may be particularly sensitive to fine particle exposure include people with heart or lung disease, older adults, and children”

http://www.epa.gov/airquality/particlepollution/designations/basicinfo.htm

Air Quality Can Change Rapidly – Be Prepared

Particles less than 10 micrometers in diameter (PM10) pose a health concern because they can be inhaled into and accumulate in the respiratory system. Particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter (PM2.5) are referred to as “fine” particles and are believed to pose the greatest health risks. Because of their small size (approximately 1/30th the average width of a human hair), fine particles can lodge deeply into the lungs.

Air quality can change rapidly from changes in the environment like in beautiful Singapore where fires in Indonesia can quickly pollute the air or dust storms in the Middle East and many other areas of the world.

  • Those in high pollution areas should always be prepared with adequate STYLE SEAL Personal Air Filters on hand.
  • Protect yourself and those nearby when threatening conditions exist.
  • We all have an umbrella for when it rains, we all should have a STYLE SEAL Personal Air Filter when bacteria or pollution put us at risk.
Which Style Seal PAF Is Right For You?

Our Style Seal Models offer a variety of stylish colors, patterns and fabrics to complement your wardrobe. All our STYLE SEAL PAF’s are affordable since the filters are replaceable. This also allows you the ability to have multiple styles to meet the diversity of your wardrobe and activities.

STYLE SEAL Personal Air Filters offer common sense affordable solutions for your personal air quality and protection. All STYLE SEAL models provide the utmost in protection, comfort, convenience and fashion. Based on the filter level you select our STYLE SEAL filters can guard you against up to 99% of all airborne pollutants and other contaminants, most of which you cannot see!

STYLE SEAL offers a wealth of superior features to protect you, while being stylish and comfortable such as:

  • Choose from a variety of styles, colours and fabrics to complement your wardrobe
  • Colour-coded replaceable filters in multiple filtration levels enabling you to match your level of protection to the hazard in your environment and control costs. Optional filter additives offer enhanced chemical and bacteria protection.
  • Multiple sizes, adjustable ear straps and a strong nose piece ensure that you get that all important secure face seal with the utmost in comfort.
  • An optional scented air freshener can enhance your fresh air experience.
  • An optional exhalation vent is also available to ease the exhalation of the air, making the inside of the mask feel cooler and easier to breathe.

All STYLE SEAL models include replaceable filters so you can match your protection requirement to your current hazard level. There are many benefits to replaceable filters such as cost savings, multiple filter levels, no guess work in when to change, allows for frequent changes daily if needed and no wear-and-tear in cleaning. No filter will work if it doesn’t properly fit and seal, as is the case with many masks now on sale elsewhere. A mask that doesn’t fit, seal or filter is virtually useless. Some other masks are merely made of cloth and offer no filtration at all!! All STYLE SEAL models fit snugly to the wearer’s facial structure, so that no air can bypass the filter, yet still allowing comfortable, normal breathing.

What Size PAF Do I Need?

A proper fit is critical to achieve a tight seal guaranteeing the effectiveness of your STYLE SEAL PAF. Current respirators and surgical masks are typically one-size-fits-all, so it is not surprising that they perform poorly, even if the filter is of good quality.

We manufacture our STYLE SEAL PAF’s in multiple sizes to insure you get the quality fit that you need for, men, women and children of all sizes: Extra Large (XL), Large (L), Medium (M), Small (S). Additionally, we have adjustable ear loops to help you further customize your personal fit.

There are several methods to determine the size you need, either by FACE MEASUREMENT, EAR to EAR MEASUREMENT, WEIGHT or by TEMPLATE.  Unless you have an unusually large or small head most people could wear either of two sizes closest to their fit by adjusting the ear loops and nose piece.  You can compare the results of a couple of these methods to help confirm the correct size for you.

FACE MEASUREMENT SIZING

The table below gives you dimensions you can relate to your facial coverage to give you an idea of which size PAF may be right for you.

Width – Measure across your face and nose to approximately midway between your mouth and ear, just past your cheek bones as shown in the sketch.

Height – Measure from the bridge of your nose where the PAF should end to just under your chin as shown in the sketch.

Mask Size Width (CM) Height (CM)
S 16 12
M 18 13
L 20 14
XL 22 16

EAR TO EAR MEASUREMENT SIZING

The table below gives you dimensions you can relate to the distance around your ears along the perimeter of the PAF to give you another idea of which size PAF may be right for you.

Measure around both ears, across the bridge of your nose and at the chin as shown in the photo below.   Your measurement should fall within the table below.

TEMPLATE SIZING

Or print, cut out and use these handy templates (click on link below) and follow the instructions to determine what size STYLE SEAL PAF is right for you.

Instructions:

  1. Print the size you think may be right for you.
  2. After printing check the dimension printed on the template to insure it printed to the correct size.
  3. Cut along the dotted lines.
  4. Fold along the center line and tape the nose and chin flaps together.
  5. Hold to you face to evaluate fit.
  6. Try smaller or larger if needed.

Unless you have an unusually large of small head most people could where either of two sizes closest to their fit by adjusting the ear loops and nose piece.  Some people prefer covering more and some less of their face.  

If you will be using an exhalation valve we would recommend using the larger of the two possible sizes.
