Mask leak/fit testers (MLFTs) are used to perform fit testing of respirator face pieces to determine the quality of face-to-mask seals. They are used to ensure that respirator seals provide a safe barrier to a contaminated environment for the user, and that each user knows how to properly don the respirator.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Mask Leak/Fit Testers are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
