What is a Type IIR disposable, medical mask?

  • Type II (or type-2) is a 3-ply construction made up of spunbond & meltblown materials.
  • 98% BFE, or Bacterial Filtration Efficiency, meaning these masks will filter out 98% of harmful particles.
  • “R” refers to ‘fluid resistance’ and so will provide additional protection to the user.

In addition to high quality Type IIR disposable, medical masks manufactured in Northern Ireland, Paragon also offer custom-branding of boxes on larger orders.

Paragon Branded Boxes

This allows customers in healthcare, transportation, retail & hospitality to have custom safety messages or branding for their customers.

We’re glad to be helping in the PPE supply to protect the public and healthcare workers against Covid-19.
