How much does a complete Tiki mask weigh?

A complete mask weighs a mere 360g.

 

How is the positive pressure in the mask created?

Through a fan the airflow speed is adjusted, based on the user’s breathing curve. This individual adjustment leads to longer battery and use time, and to lower consumption of filters.

 

What’s the mask made of?

The actual mask is made of PET and TPE plastics.

 

What’s the filter made of?

ABS plastics and HEPA glass fibre media.

 

What does the filter protect against?

All kinds of particulate pollution (P3). For instance quartz dust, asbestos, or bacteria. See a longer list of substances here.

 

How often do you need to change the filter?

It depends wholly on the environment where the mask is used, and the density of particles in the air. As an example, a craftsman who uses the mask a few times a week, would normally have to change the filter every 20 to 120 days. Whereas with sandblasting it needs to be changed from every other day, to every five days.

  

How often does the mask need changing?

Just like with the filter, it depends on the working environment, and the degree of contamination. Please contact us for more information.

 

How long is the battery time?

Up to 2.5 hours with the built-in battery, and up to 10 hours with the external battery (accessory).

 

What kind of battery is it?

Li–Po (lithium polymer)

 

Is long-time storage suitable for Tiki?

Yes. Thanks to Li–Po batteries’ superior capacity, the mask can be stored for a long time for purposes of military readiness, for instance. Please contact us about how you best maintenance- charge your batteries. Tiki doesn’t take up a lot of room: several hundred masks can be stored in a one-cubic-metre space.

 

How’s the battery charged?

Either with the complimentary battery charger for the mains (220/110V). Or with a 12V charger (accessory) that fits into the socket of a car cigarette lighter.

 

What is the kind of lighting used?

2 LED lamps (8.5 lumen each)

 

What are the mask’s kind of warning systems?

Tiki has three built-in warning systems:

1) When the particle filter needs changing or is clogged.

2) When the battery is running low and needs charging.

3) If the mask isn’t airtight/leaks.

 

Where does the manufacturing of Tiki take place?

At our facility at Tiki Safety AB, in Upplands Bro, outside Stockholm, Sweden.

 

Where can I find technical specifications?

In the instruction manual which you can find and download here (Link to all manuals in several languages).

 

What size mask should I choose?

The mask comes in three sizes – Small, Medium, and Large. To find out what size is right for you, please consult our size guide here (PDF in English).
