BarriAire Gold Particulate Mask with Neck Gaiter


Comfortable, easy to don and easy to maintain, BarriAire Gold Particulate Masks are the ideal solution for EMS, non‑structural firefighting, brush, wildland and urban interface incidents. A high performance particulate mask with neck gaiter that blocks smoke, soot and airborne hazards. The sleek, innovative design incorporates an adjustable, replaceable nose bridge that fits snugly to your face while accommodating goggles, glasses and head gear. Washable, reusable and no need for replacement cartridges means this might be the only face mask you'll ever need.

Fabric Description:

Quilted composite with PFAS-free durable water resistant finish on the exterior layer and a dual-technology antimicrobial and anti-odor finish on the inside layer with Nomex® Nano Flex between layers for excellent stretch, recovery and odor control. Averages 96% particulate efficiency for particulates between 0.1 and 1.0 microns. PGI quilted BarriAire composite fabrics recently achieved Viral Filtration Efficiency (VFE) Rating of 96.8% and Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) Rating of 97.9% (as conducted by Nelson Labs, U.S.A.). NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Category 4.


Sizing Guide ThumbnailHold your head straight, with chin level to the ground, wrap flexible tape measurer around your head, starting at the base of your head and continue under your ears to the bridge of your nose. Continue around entire head for a circumference measurement. If your head circumference is 22", both sizes will fit you, there just will be more or less overlap in the hook and loop for adjustment.

High Magnification Fiber Comparison

Nomex® Nano Flex material consists of nonwoven, submicron, continuous nano-fibers and is inherently flame resistant. It is thinner and lighter weight than typical nonwoven materials. Nomex® Nano Flex is highly breathable and combines exceptional elasticity with superior particulate blocking performance.


BarriAire Gold Burn Tests

The flame protection of PGI's BarriAire Gold Rib Knit and 3-Ply Composite is tested at over 2000° F — the results speak for themselves.

Particulate Protection

BarriAire Particulate Barrier Technology products offer more protection, comfort and value. BarriAire particulate products combine two layers of proven flame resistant fabric and a middle layer of ultra-lightweight DuPont Nomex® Nano Flex fabric which blocks penetration of 96% (BarriAire Gold quilted composite) to 98.8% (BarriAire Silver laminated composite) of harmful submicron size particulates. BarriAire Gold quilted composite fabrics recently achieved Viral Filtration Efficiency (VFE) Rating of 96.8% and Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) Rating of 97.9%. BarriAire Silver laminated composite fabrics recently achieved VFE Rating of 99.7% and BFE Rating of 99.9% (VFE and BFE testing as conducted by Nelson Labs, U.S.A.).
