PPE shipping: how we can help

We are working with businesses across the UK to ship the PPE they need to operate safely, including but not limited to:

Filtering face piece class 3 (FFP3) respirators
This type of face respirator is one of the most widely available and effective forms on the market, filtering at least 99% of airborne particles. They protect against small airborne particles that may carry the coronavirus.

Filtering face piece class 2 (FFP2) respirators
Filtering at least 94% of airborne particles, this facemask can be used as an alternative if the FFP3 mask is unavailable.

N95 respirators
The N95 respirator filters at least 95% of airborne particles and can be used as an alternative if the FFP3 mask is unavailable.

Fluid-resistant (Type IIR) surgical masks (FRSM)
A FRSM provides an effective barrier against respiratory droplets reaching the mouth and nose of the wearer. These are designed to be used in a single session before being safely discarded.

Disposable aprons and gowns
Disposable aprons and gowns are single-use PPE, providing protection to staff uniforms or clothing from contamination.

Disposable gloves
A disposable pair of gloves are a single-use PPE item, helping to provide protection against blood or body fluids that may carry a risk of infection.
