ELIPSE masks

The Elipse® range of face masks, designed, developed and made in the UK by GVS, represent a major advance in mask design. As one of
the lightest on the market in its class, its ergonomic shape provides maximum visibility to wearers, can safely be worn with goggles, helmets and hearing protection, and the ability to replace filters extends the mask’s overall working life.These compact profile masks are made of hypo-allergenic materials and the replaceable filters offer a minimum efficiency of 99,95% or higher at 0,3 microns particle size.


Range of extremely lightweight masks that fit perfectly to the face, without hindering the user. The compact profile of the body and filters allows all Elipse® range masks to perfectly seal to the face and ensure the greatest possible field of vision during use, without interfering with other eye or ear protections which users choose to wear. Elipse® come in 2 sizes.


Unique comfort, thanks to the flexible and soft characteristics of the TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer), used in the Elipse® masks, making them very comfortable even for extended use. The materials that make up the mask are odourless and hypo-allergenic, “FDA” compatible, latex and silicone free. Conforms to ISO 109903-10:2010 skin irritation test of facemask.


High Efficiency Synthetic Particulate Air-filter is a technology used in all Elipse® range that enables the patented "encapsulation" production process. The 7 layers combined filter media is using exclusively mechanical filtration technology, giving the filter guarantee that the efficiency stay above 99,95% during the usage. Those filters are also water-repellent thanks to the nature of those media.


GVS Elipse P3 particulate filters protect against nano particulates, and have been tested down to 40 nanometers (0.04 microns) still giving an efficiency of >99.95%.


Indications for the choice of respiratory protection devices are based on current knowledge. Before each use of the Elipse® respirator device, the buyer and user must ensure that the masks and filtersused are those specified for the type of pollutant and its concentrations.The ultimate responsibility concerning selection and use of products lies solely with the buyer and user.


Dust filters are able to retain airborne particulates and are offered in various constructions, which enhance the filter’s characteristics with use of various types of filter material with different thickness, porosity and surfaces, to protect against particulates, gases and nuisance odours. Cartridge filters contain specific activated carbon, which retain certain gases and vapours by adsorption, while combined filters can remove both gases, vapours and particulates.


There are various types of particulate dust filters which have different filtration efficiency. Depending on which you choose, you can have the most suitable means of protection again environmental pollution conditions. The airborne particles are retained by the filter by means of mechanical and/or electrostatic action.

In the case of gas filters, substances are retained by the chemical -physical action of the activated carbon contained in the filter, able to adsorb and neutralise contaminants. It is assumed that the efficiency of gas and vapour interception on adsorbent material is 100%, atleast until the completion of the capacity of the filter material. For gas filters, we refer to ; time to completion or, rather, the period beyond which the filter is saturated and the pollutant begins to pass through the filter. This ‘breakthrough’ time depends on the quantity and quality of the adsorbent material used, on the active area of the cartridge, on its filtration capacity against the pollutant and on environmental concentrations and conditions.
