Where to buy N95, P2 and KN95 face masks online in New Zealand

If you're looking for a mask that has a higher level of filtration, these online retailers can help.

Some of the most effective face masks to stop the spread of coronavirus include P2, N95 and KN95, due to the higher level of particle filtration.

These types of masks can sometimes look very similar, but are identified by the international regulatory standard that they comply with.

  • P2 is the Australia/New Zealand respiratory standard.
  • N95 is the United States respiratory standard.
  • KN95 is the Chinese respiratory standard.
  • FFP2 is the European respiratory standard

If you’re looking to stock up on masks for your family or workplace, buying in bulk can often be most cost-effective. Keep scrolling to find out where you can purchase these types of face masks online and be prepared for a virus outbreak in your community.

    What's the difference between a P2, FFP2, KN95 and N95 face mask?

    Depending on your location, different face mask types are more widely used. For example, in the United States and Canada, N95 are common; in Australia and New Zealand you'll see P2 masks more often; in China, KN95 is the standard. Mask manufacturer 3M, which specialises in filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) masks, offers the following explanation of the main differences between each mask type.

    When should or shouldn’t I use a P2, N95 or KN95 face mask in New Zealand?

    The advice about face mask use in New Zealand can change at any time depending on whether we have community spread of the virus. You can find the most up-to-date information for Kiwis on the Ministry of Health website.

    Masks are most effective when used in combination with social distancing, frequent hand washing and use of an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
