The KOPLAP® is a “balaclava” type innovation is currently used as a precautionary respiratory protection “means and method”.
The KOPLAP® was innovated as a precautionary device to mitigate the inhalation of large particulate, dust and noxious vapours by miners working in confined spaces underground. The KOPLAP® can also be used in outdoor agricultural applications when ploughing and working in dusty silos and confined spaces where dust and particulate are generated.
The KOPLAP® is made from a novel fabric and meets the basic guidelines for use as a washable, reusable and “sanitisable” triple layer cloth face mask as recommended during the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest innovation is currently being developed to meet the Mine Health and Safety Association (MHSA) milestones for FFP1, 2 & 3 accreditation.
