Venus – These are industrial grade masks that work well to filter out gases, odour and particles.  Three different options are available at varying efficiencies:

Green – FFP2 (N95 equivalent) – 94% efficient at removing PM2.5 and with carbon filter for traffic fumes, gases and odours.

White – FFP2 (N95 equivalent) – 94% efficient at removing PM2.5 .

Yellow – FFP1 (N93 equivalent) – 87% efficient at removing PM2.5
