Where to buy KN95 masks online in South Africa

If you’re looking for industry-standard KN95 masks, we’ve rounded up the retailers that will ship them right to your door.

KN95 respirators are particulate-filtering masks that have been performance-standard tested in China. Similar to the P2 mask, KN95 masks are used to filter out around 95% of airborne particulates and are often used to help stop the spread of disease.

With the current outbreak of COVID-19, many people are now looking to invest in filtration masks; however, it is important to know when to use one. The World Health Organisation recommends that masks should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible, to help stop the spread of coronavirus. Also know when to dispose of the mask – recent studies have shown that KN95 masks may only be reused a few times depending on decontamination method used.

If you’re planning to go into public areas or to events where social distancing is not possible, you’ll find a range of KN95 masks available at the following retailers. Plus see which ones offer free shipping to boot.
