WOOD magazine review

Breathe a sigh of relief and clean air with QuickLatch

Review Summary

We all know we should avoid breathing wood dust and overspray from wood finishes, but those annoying paper masks are uncomfortable and usually of little good. That’s why I think the QuickLatch Pro is a great value: It combines ultrafine filtration with all-day comfort. The QuickLatch Pro features dual filters that trap particles down to 0.035 microns—that’s dust, solvents, finishes, paint, mold, and pesticides—allowing only clean, breathable air through the mask.
The QuickLatch Pro slipped over my head easily, covering my nose and mouth. I pulled the straps tight behind my neck for a good seal. The hinge-like latch releases the respirator quickly, allowing it to drop below my chin, and then just as quickly tightens it up—all with one hand. —Tested by Pat Lowry

Respirator

Review Summary

I've used this unit for well over a year when exposed to dust from my workshop (primarily saw dust with a little paint spraying). This unit is affordable, effective and highly recommended . Just remember it does not take the place of a combined approach of collecting the dust at production and cleaning the air escaping from the former. Don't forget all that clings to clothing when you leave the shop...... and keep not only you but you're wife, as well happy!
We can produce a lot of irritants that have an additive effect over the years (as I have learned).
