Enhanced Protection with Silver-Infused Nanofiber Membrane
The gaiter incorporates a nanofiber membrane that contains Nanosilver® nanoparticles. This utilization of Nanosilver® inhibits the growth and propagation of microorganisms within the structure of the gaiter. The membrane is sewn into the nose and mouth area, as depicted in the picture.
How the Nanofiber Membrane Technology in the FFP2 Nanofiber Neck Warmer Works"
The nanofiber membrane technology in the FFP2 Nanofiber Neck Warmer works by using nanofibers that are spun into a very dense mesh or filter. This membrane has microscopic holes that are so small that air molecules can pass through, but viruses, bacteria, and allergens are trapped with 97-99% efficiency. The nanofiber membrane from PARDAM NANO4FIBERS has been tested to trap particles between 0.1-0.3 um (100-300 nanometers), which includes the sizes of most bacteria (200-1000 nanometers) and viruses (20-400 nanometers).
In addition, the membrane's ability to trap particles is not limited to the sizes that have been tested. The nanoscale of the fibers allows for atomic forces to come into play, making particles smaller than 200-300 nm even easier to trap. This is because smaller particles are affected by Van der Waals forces, while larger particles, like bacteria and viruses, are often attached to other aerosol or dust particles in the air. The FFP2 Nanofiber Neck Warmer also contains silver nanoparticles, adding an extra layer of protection against microorganisms.
What Distinguishes the Nanofiber Membrane in the Gaiter from that of Its Competitors?
The nanofiber membrane utilized in the nanoSPACE gaiter is renowned for its durability and damage resistance. Our team conducted assessments on all membrane variations available on the European market, and discovered that, aside from the membrane we employed, other membranes from competitors failed to endure washing (with the efficiency of competing membranes decreasing from 99% to 10% following a single wash). Our membrane retains a 95% efficacy rate even after undergoing 15 gentle washing cycles.
We advise disinfecting it on a daily basis and washing it once per week. Additionally, our membrane contains silver nanoparticles, which counteract microorganism proliferation within the membrane.
Protect Yourself from More than just Epidemics:
With smog linked to over 5.5 million deaths annually, it's important to protect ourselves from polluted air. The effects of inhaling smog for extended periods of time can lead to serious health issues such as headaches, skin irritation, eye irritation, liver failure, asthma, and even cancer. That's why a neck gaiter can serve as a versatile solution for not just epidemics and pollen season, but for shielding against polluted air as well. Here are some of the key scenarios where wearing a neck gaiter can make a difference:
- In smog-ridden cities, particularly during outdoor activities and exercise
- During allergy season for those with allergies and asthma
- When traveling, especially to highly polluted Asian cities like Bangkok
- During outdoor sports where airways are fully open and vulnerable to absorption of harmful particles
- In public transportation where the risk of transmitting infections and viruses is high
- In various outdoor activities where protection from external factors is necessary (fishing, shooting, climbing, motorcycling, etc.).
What is the Rationale behind Using Micro-Mesh® to Create Gaiters?
The reason behind using Italian Micro-Mesh® to produce gaiters is due to its unique properties. It is an elastic knit composed of 90% polyester and 10% elastane, with a weight of 115 g/m-2. The material is made using microfiber on fine knitting machines, resulting in a knit with 42 stitches per inch (2.54 cm). This creates a soft and comfortable material that conforms to the curves of the face. Additionally, the micro-holes provide excellent breathability, making it ideal for use in the warm summer months.
How to Properly Wear the FFP2 Nanofiber Neck Gaiter for Optimal Protection
- Start with Clean Hands: Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or use an antibacterial gel before putting on the gaiter. Repeat after removing it.
- Roll and Slip Over Head: Roll the gaiter up and carefully pull it over your head.
- Secure Nose Clip: Press the nose clip to the root of the nose and shape it gently.
- Adjust Fit: Use the adjustable elastic cord at the back to tighten the gaiter, ensuring a secure and snug fit.
Instructions for removing the FFP2 Nanofiber Neck Gaiter:
- Start by loosening the nose clip and elastic cord to gently remove the gaiter.
- Ensure to wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.
- Properly clean or sterilize the gaiter.
Note: FFP2 Nanofiber Neck Gaiter should fit properly without covering the ears for adults. Avoid folding the nose clip while wearing, maintaining or storing the gaiter.

Instructions for Caring for the nanoSPACE Nanofiber Neck Gaiter
To maintain the effectiveness of the Nanofiber Neck Gaiter, it's essential to follow proper care instructions.
- Wash: Clean the gaiter using a chlorine and phosphorus-free washing gel or powder, core soap is recommended. Avoid tumble drying and opt for hand washing or a gentle cycle in the washing machine.
- Disinfect: After each use, sterilize the gaiter with a disinfectant suitable for nanofiber products.
- Drying: Allow the washed gaiter to air dry for 12 to 24 hours, spreading it out on a drying rack or on a heater. Avoid using clothespins in the filter area.
- Caution: Do not use bleach, fabric softeners or other harsh products, and avoid ironing or tumble drying the gaiter.
- Replacement: Over time, the nanofiber filter in the gaiter may lose its effectiveness and the entire neck warmer will need to be replaced.
Environment protection is a top priority at our company, which is why we have decided to invest in a more eco-friendly packaging solution. Our neck gaiters come in boxes made of grass paper, sourced from unused agricultural compensation areas. This paper is produced mechanically using grass pellets and recovered paper, and no fertilisers or chemicals are used in the process.

This product is manufactured by nanoSPACE s.r.o. located at Rohova 98, Domažlice 344 01. It falls under the category of FFP2 neck gaiters.
The Czech company nanoSPACE has been operating on the market since 2012 and focuses primarily on products where nanofiber textiles are used. In 2012, it became the first manufacturer to use a nanofibrous membrane in barrier covers for allergy sufferers. Since then, it has expanded its portfolio to include nano duvets and nano pillows, which are especially suitable for people with dust allergies.
In 2016, it was the first in the world to present functional bed linen that can fully replace barrier coatings. This product line, which bears the name Nanocotton®, was able to combine the functionality of the material with organic cotton and is suitable not only for allergy sufferers, but also for atopic patients.
During the coronavirus epidemic in 2020, nanoSPACE used its long-term knowledge in the field of nanofiber materials and started the production of anti-virus neck gaiters and protective masks made of nanofiber. From 2021, it also produces designer washable nano masks.
In 2021, the nanoSPACE company founded the subsidiary nanoSPACE Technology, which is dedicated to development, research and innovation in the field of nanofiber textiles.
