What is an air-purifying respirator?

Air-purifying respirators (APRs) provide respiratory protection by removing contaminants in the air you breathe. APRs filter particulates from the atmosphere including dusts, mists, aerosols, fumes, fibres and other particles.

APRs come in half-mask and full face versions and can also remove gases and vapours by attaching the appropriate chemical cartridge. Read our Respiratory Protection 101 post to learn more.
