The irritant smoke tubes sold by Grainger are an easy and economical way to provide required respirator fit testing for our employees. The ease of ordering online and then having a choice of either delivering my product or picking it up at the nearest retail outlet make shopping simple.

Does Grainger ever offer a Respirator try on day?

Where people could try on different makes, models and sizes of multiple air purifying respirators at the same time/location. Sort of like the mobile safety shoe van that comes to a client facility. This could be offered instead at a Grainger outlet store.

Pursuant to the OSHA Respiratory Protection standard, (29 CFR 1910.134 (d)(1)(iv), The employer shall select respirators from a sufficient number of respirator models and sizes so that the respirator is acceptable to, and correctly fits, the user.

Moisture proof respirator

I sweat profusely and need to use a respirator when working around pollins. The respirator that I have now clogs up from sweat and I can't breath at all. Can you put me on to a respirator that works well for pollens and doesn't clog up with sweat? Thank you
Field of Industry:: Outdoor work
A good full-face respirator with an appropriate cartridge and a P-100 designation will provide you with adequate respiratory protection.

If you have trouble with excessive sweating and the face piece fogging up, then you might consider upgrading to a positive pressure respirator instead. An SCBA, a PAPR or airline supplied system, with the air blasting into your face should minimize fogging and actually cool your face a little as well. The cost is greater, but these systems can work miracles.

What products do you have in respirators for small facial featured people?

I am looking for a North FF respirator, 1/2 face, and N95 for a co-worker needing to be respirator trained.

I have found that the North full face respirator fits well on people with smaller and also with larger faces. In my experience, the MSA brand does better on people with average size faces.

Where is the facepiece size located on a North full face?

The face piece size, on the North, Model 5400 full-face respirator, is located just above the plexi glass face piece on the forehead gasket. In the grey-colored rubber part.
