Radians Inc., a top-tier manufacturer and supplier of quality personal protective equipment, has added particulate respirators to the company’s product mix.

These disposable respirators are ideal for job sites where sanding, grinding, blasting or landscaping occur or in warehouses where dust and allergens cause respiratory irritation.
The RADN95V is packaged with 10 respirators per box while the RADN95 has 20 respirators per box. Both styles feature a soft liner, a nose clip and two comfort straps for a secure fit. The RADN95V is engineered with the Arctic Valve that quickly dispels heat, improving comfort and wearability.
