Quantitative respiratory fit testing uses an instrument to measure the effectiveness of the respirator seal that is suitable for use on the following filtering facepiece respirator types:
A note on fit testing KN95 masks:
We will issue a fit test card and report for KN95 masks tested to pass the CSA protocol. The test report and the card show a fit factor at an acceptable level but not a certificate.
Quantitative fit testing does not rely on your sense of taste, smell, or irritation in order to detect the leakage.
Instead, the respirator fit testing equipment measures real-time fit while the user simultaneously performs a series of moving, breathing and talking exercises designed to simulate the same movements made in the field.
Every participant who successfully completes the fit test is provided with a wallet card indicating the respirator they were fitted with and its size.
Their employer will receive a record of training in the form of a fit test report that they can use for record keeping purposes.
Note for Fit Testing:
Clients must be clean shaven and bring their own half mask or full face mask to their fit testing appointment.
We have a limited number of medical N95 available, please make all reasonable attempts to bring one for your test from your school or employer.
