At long last, BGH has finally found a respirator that is designed specifically for the pest control products our customers are using and that exceeds our satisfaction in terms of price, protection, quality and ease of use. When we learned what our customers were using to "protect" themselves we knew we had a find them a better solution, and we did. BGH has done all the research so you don't have to.
Most growers simply run to their nearest hardware superstore for a respirator when they start using pesticides. This is a BIG mistake! Sure, they are $20-30 cheaper but what are your lungs worth to you? Those less expensive masks (yes, this includes the 3M masks most growers end up using) are great at protecting you from dust and paint fumes, BUT NOT PESTICIDES. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on a great investment that will outlast any of those other masks.
We've even taken it a step further and come up with a complete protection solution for you. We find that when growers are lacking proper protection they tend to not do as good of a job spraying their plants. In other words, because they want to get in and out as quickly as possible they miss some of the most important areas - plants at the back of the room where it's hard to reach, the undersides of the leaves, etc. No wonder those spider mites and powdery midew keep coming back! Here's what we recommend. Start with a Sundstrom Pro Pack and and Protective Hood, both of which you can purchase here at BGH. Then, take a trip to the hardware store and pickup two things: Tyvek coveralls and long cuff gloves. Now, when you enter the room and start spraying you will feel so comfortable and well-protected that you will do the best job ever!
Sundstrom’s comfortable half mask respirator lets you work longer with less effort and better protection, and at less cost. One Pro Pack includes everything you need.
The masks you buy at the hardware store typically come with a P95 filter, meaning they eliminate up to 95% of particles. Sundstrom’s P100 filter eliminates 99.997% of particles. NIOSH only requires 99.97% efficiency. That means our P100 filter is 10 X more effective, providing 10 X better protection.
Greater Comfort and Less Breathing Resistance
Our flexible Silcone mask fits great. Sundstrom’s unique design significantly cuts inhalation and exhalation resistance making the mask twice as easy to breathe through. This increases comfort and lengthens use time.
250% More Air Flow
Our half mask respirator and P100 filter allows breathing rates of more than 250 liters per minute as compared to most competitive products which generally allow only 95 lpm. This means the Sundstrom user can handle much heavier work loads.
The SR 100 half mask respirator can be used with our P100 filter and / or a range of chemical cartridges which can be “piggy-backed” together. The Pro Kit comes prepackaged with the chemical cartridge specifically designed for agricultural pesticides.
Far Less Cost Over Time
The SR 100 is an easy to maintain, clean and disinfect reusable mask. Our distinct pre-filter system prevents premature clogging of the particulate filter and extends filter life up to 5 times longer than competitive products.
