 Good face masks for dust filtering

Anyone found a good brand of face mask for filtering air when the dust is flying? I bought these el-cheapo paper masks at the hardware store but they just don't fit well and leak. I have a respirator but that's sort of overkill for dust. Gemplers sells a bunch of different kinds but I'm sort of interested in what others are using and what features and brands are liked best.

We use the cheap fabric sand-blasting hoods that go over a standard hard-hat. They work very well and as long as it's not too hot they are very comfortable. As an aside, they're pretty good defence against bees and mossies too.

Best of luck.

Not a bad way to go Murf. I really should be wearing a hard hat in the woods anyway. You never know when a limb will break loose and the JD cap probably doesn't offer much protection Smile

It's not much of a stretch for us since most sites require either FOPS or hard-hats or both anyways.

They do affect vision a little, but it beats coughing up the ground you just graded.

Best of luck.

A dual filter respirator is the 100% solution but these work well in leu of a respirator and are not any more bulky or cause an impact more than a mask. They kinda look like a horse's feed bag but they work.

After seeing what those sandblaster hoods look like I'm sure they would cut down on visibility a fair amount. Plus, on sunny days they look like they'd get hot - heck, on those days I sweat like a pig without a hood. Gempler's sells a sampler pack of 12 disposable masks from different manufacturers for $40. I was thinking of ordering a set and see which works best. Chief, they don't sell the AOSafety Pleats Plus masks you pointed out. Do you use those? Do you buy them direct?

Ken, I'm not sure what hoods you were looking at, the ones we use are made of a light (white) fabric like what a cheap T-shirt would be made of.

Best of luck.

Murf, I didn't search a long time with google but I looked at three hits and they all looked essentially like this one. Do you have a brand name or supplier you use?

DOOOHHHH, my mistake Ken, they are not sandblasting hoods, they are for when you are spray-painting.

They are meant to keep the overspray off you, the regular ventilator mask goes underneath. According to the boys at the shop they come from our local auto parts supplier.

Close but no cigar.

Best of luck.

Murf, that brings up some items that look a little more appropriate! Here's one that is dirt cheap, $7 for a dozen. You mean something like this?
