If you are concerned about air quality and air pollution and want to make sure you are protected, the CYCL Pollution Scarf can help. The FaceGuard comes ready-to-use with an integrated and washable nanofiber filter that filters 99.5% of PM 0.1 and 99.9% of PM2.5 - airborne particulates such as pollen, smog and other allergens.
The FaceGuard has been designed with comfort, utility and everyday use in mind; it has an adjustable nose strip and elastic closure to provide minimal air leakage for any face shape. For use as a face covering while commuting, walking, cycling, using a scooter, whilst on an aeroplane or even as protection from hay-fever.
To achieve the best possible protection, the rectangular filter needs to fit over the nose and face to ensure inhaled air goes through the nanofiber membrane. To ensure a tight fit adjust both the tightness of the elastic band at the back of your head and the shape of the adjustable metal clip on your nose.

What are you protected from?
Can Face Guard Pollution Scarf protect me from influenza, coronaviruses or other highly contagious viruses?
The FaceGuard does not belong to the equipment for medical or professional use that would be certified by official standards, but it helps shield against airborne particles. Nanofiber filter masks usually belong to a one-time equipment category. Because its filter is covered by special textile layer, it is more durable in terms of wear and care and therefore is able to be washed.
The FaceGuard can provide guaranteed virus protection before washing. After washing, it will still protect you, but there will be some reduced effectiveness. For protection against viruses, it is necessary to wash the scarf after every single use. The filter should provide full protection up to 50 washes. After which, there will naturally be some decline in effectiveness. However, it will remain effective at filtering dangerous air particulates. Always hand wash without using aggressive substances like softener or bleach and refer to our care instructions found in the FAQs.
Following the lockdowns of global pandemic of Covid-19 and subsequent easing on lockdown measures, some governments are recommending using a face mask or face covering when in public spaces such as supermarkets, public transport or shops. FaceGuard can be used in this context when you want an extra layer of protection. The integrated nanofiber filter offers 99.5% protection from PM0.1 (dependent on frequency and type of use)
