Waire™ P2 Respirator

Complies With AS/NZS 1716:2012 Standard 


A Class P2 particulate respirator is used for protection against both mechanically and thermally generated particulates (dust, mists, and fumes). It is the responsibility of the user to ensure the suitability of this respirator for the application
The WAIRE™ P2 respirator mask must be fitted and adjusted correctly to your face to provide the intended protection
  • WAIRE™ P2 can also be used in certain applications against some bio-aerosols. such as COVID and FLU virus. Helps protect against airborne biological particles - Fluid resistant (120 mm Hg synthetic blood resistance)

  • Lightweight construction for added comfort that may increase wearer time. Has a 4-point head harness for a secure and comfortable fit

  • Nose wire allows the wearer to shape to nose giving a better fit which will also reduce eyewear fogging and form a better seal

  • Made from Lanaco HELIX™ Advanced Filter Material for effective filtration with low breathing resistance (104Pa @ 95l/m) 

  • Does not contain components made from natural rubber latex

  • Protects against hazards, such as dust, mists, smoke and fumes 

  • Complies with AS/NZS 1716:2012 standard and approved at P2 level

  • Exceeds 95% filtration efficiency in laboratory testing when tested at 95 L/min against a salt aerosol (VicLab Australia, INSPEC United Kingdom) 

  • Advanced wool hybrid electrostatic filter media – low breathing resistance, moisture-wicking and naturally bacteriostatic


Lanaco WAIRE™ AS/NZ 1716 P2

Designed to help protect the wearer from exposure to airborne particles (e.g. Dust, mist, fumes, fibres, and bioaerosols, such viruses and bacteria



Designed to fit tightly to the face and create a seal between the user’s face and the respirator



Meets AS/NZ1716 P2 requirements for a minimum 94% filtration efficiency against solid and liquid aerosols that do not contain oil

Not made with natural rubber latex


Fluid Resistant - Meets ASTM Test Method F1862 “Resistance of Medical Face Masks to Penetration by Synthetic Blood” which determines the mask’s resistance to synthetic blood directed at it under varying high pressures.

Read all warnings and instructions prior to using this mask. Fit the respirator correctly before entering the contaminated area. When fitted properly, this respirator helps to protect the user against certain particles in certain environments. The user must be trained and follow all instructions and local government regulations on the use of respirators, including this product. Misuse of this product can result in sickness, injury, or death.

DO NOT use these respirators:
•     For protection against gases, vapours or radioactive contaminants, or for concentrations of contaminants that exceed ten (10) times the Exposure Standard.
•     In environments with an oxygen concentration below 19.5%, as this respirator does not supply oxygen.
•     When they are modified or damaged.
•     With any conditions that prevent a good seal between the face and sealing edge of the respirator, including but not limited to beards or other facial hair.
