In response to the shortage of P2 masks experienced by the resources sector throughout the COVID pandemic, a South Australian manufacturer called Detmold has worked with industry to design a P2 mask suitable for open-cut and underground mining operations and certified to Australian standards.
Detmold has advised that it expects Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approval on Friday 12 June 2020. Detmold will be ready to manufacture masks following this approval.
Information regarding Detmold and the masks is below. Should you have issues with supply of P2s suitable for open-cut and underground operations, please contact Detmold who can arrange samples for fit testing and inspection.
If you would like to receive a sample pack for inspection and/or testing, or wish to obtain further information on costs, ordering and manufacture timeframes, please contact:
