Gill™ Mask PRO

What is the difference between Gill™ Mask and Gill™ Mask PRO?

Gill™ Mask PRO is designed for users who want to protect themselves from airborne contaminants for longer period of time, and/or in the outdoor setting.

The first key difference between Gill™ Mask and Gill™ Mask PRO is in its filter/ cartridge design. Gill™ Mask PRO now offers a filter cartridge that has 2.5 times more filter surface area than original Gill™ Mask. What that means is that Gill™ Mask PRO offers higher breathability due to its enlarged filter area to allow more air flowing in and out.

Secondly, Gill™ Mask PRO has an updated autoclave ready strap, made of silicone. This upgrade allows the users (especially those work in higher risk environment) to be able to sterilize the entire Gill™ Mask PRO respirator in their autoclave equipment (high temperature, high pressure). Gill™ Mask strap, on the other hand, was made of nylon and is not suitable for autoclave treatment.

Lastly, the door cover of Gill™ Mask PRO has a different design to enable users to be able to differentiate externally between Gill™ Mask and Gill™ Mask PRO.

  • Gill™ Mask and Gill™ Mask PRO share the same biocompatible silicone facepiece, uses the same polypropylene material for its door cover, casing and cartridge holder. Both respirators use the filter that are made of the same high-quality melt blown material that has a particulate filtration efficiency (PFE) over 95% or bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) over 98%.
