RIDGID has received inquiries about the filtration materials in our vacuum filters and vacuum filter bags.
Thank you for your inquiry about our products. The filter material used in the vacuum filters and vacuum filter bags is not intended for any purpose other than to protect the end user of the RIDGID products from particles or debris being expelled back into the ambient air during vac operations and store captured particles and debris. Our filter material, vacuum filters, and vacuum filter bags are not designed or intended to be used to directly protect humans’ faces, mouths or noses from bacteria, viruses or other pathogens. Therefore, we do not recommend that any vacuum filter materials, vacuum filters, or vacuum filter bags manufactured, sold, or distributed in the market by RIDGID be used as mask filtration material.
