Product Description

ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  WE CAN NOT ACCEPT RETURNS ON THIS ITEM.

We also have stock of US-made PHG NIOSH N95's (item # 11165). For BAL Supply NIOSH N99's see item # 11158, and for BAL Supply valved NIOSH N99's see item # 11155.

A Harvard University professor recently called for everyone to wear N95 masks which could virtually halt transmission of even the new more highly transmissible variants of the coronavirus. CNN has called N95's "the face mask that could end the pandemic". 

As authorized BAL Supply Inc distributors, we are able to bring these masks to the general public at a no-nonsense pre-pandemic price, and with a host of features that make them the best NIOSH-approved N95 value for the money, hands down:

  • No metal nosepiece means fewer nose fatigue and fit issues. Instead, the mask has an ergonomic design to match the nose and the upper seal on the mask is made with a soft, broad fabric flap which increases comfort and makes for a better fit with no need to constantly bend a metal strip between uses.
  • No headband staples. The connections to the head bands are fusion welded for greater comfort.
  • Stretchy elasticized fabric head bands instead of exposed elastics.
  • The inside layer is a softer fabric for a more comfortable fit.

BAL Supply 05144 advanced particulate filtering N95 dust masks are NIOSH-approved (approval number 84A-7719) and are designed to protect the wearer against non-oil-based particles as small as 0.3 microns, while still allowing the user full, deep breaths of clean, fresh air. Each has a flexible, adjustable metal nose piece that can be bent or shaped to ideally fit the user's face. The flexible head strap allows the user to don and remove the mask with ease. These are readily compatible with other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, goggles, earmuffs, and hardhats and the straps are latex-free.

These masks are ideal for protection against small particulates such as saw dust, metal shavings, pollen, allergens, fiberglass, and more. They are ideal for activities such as woodworking or painting at home as well as by professional carpenters, contractors, or lawn care specialists.  N95 filtering respirators filter at least 95% of airborne particles. These are not resistant to oil.  NIOSH has a convenient discussion of particulate filtering respirator classifications on their web site. 

Technical Note 1: Respirators with KN designations such as KN95 are not NIOSH-approved. While the US FDA has issued an Emergency Use Authorization for unapproved respirators under certain conditions, the market for KN95's is fraught with substandard and counterfeit products and  should be considered only when approved alternatives are unavailable. A recent study by ECRI determined that up up to 70% of  imported non-NIOSH certified respirators exhibit filtration performance "significantly inferior" to NIOSH-certified N95's.

Technical Note 2:  These masks are manufactured by Taiwan-based Jinfuyu Industrial Co, Ltd which holds the NIOSH approval and has factories in both China and Vietnam. These masks have a three shelf life and come with a dates of manufacture/expiration on them. We promise to ship masks that have at least two years remaining before expiration. These masks are identical to the Bielcor B201 N95 we previously offered - only the box and printing on the masks is different.

Tax tip! The Internal Revenue Service has stated that the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes, for the primary purpose of preventing the spread of coronavirus are deductible medical expenses.  They are also eligible for reimbursement under health flexible spending accounts such as FSA's and HSA's.

Case dimensions: 27" x 17" x 12" (68.6 x 43.2 x 30.5 cm), 15 lb (6.8 kg).

  1. affordable, cup style, not adjustable 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 21st 2021

    They fit me ok but they are cup style, not adjustable, the nose bridge is molded in with a foam cover rather than having the bendable metal strip some masks have. These are definitely economy masks but I'm able to get a decent seal. I don't have a good way to test filtration right now. Straps are welded on and are more solidly attached than they are on some other masks I've had, where they break off and I've been fixing them with hot glue. They come 20 in a box and they are stacked/nested inside a plastic bag in the box. They are not individually wrapped which is slightly disappointing. I'm an average sized male and I can't promise they'll fit everyone. I will be giving them out to family members and see how that goes.

  2. Perfect fit test 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 9th 2020

    I'm a registered nurse. These masks gave a perfect fit test. And I’d actually prefer this mask over any other that I’ve worn because it’s comfortable and has a large amount of breathing area
