3M 6000 Fullface Respirators : can I wear glasses with this?

6 posts in this topic

Well, I'm able to wear my glasses under the 6000 fullface respirator, although adjusting the straps to keep pressure off the bridge of my nose is a bit fiddly. If I'm doing the sort of work where the respirator is on and off me a lot, I usually resort to my half-face mask. -David

A heavy frame would be a problem for two reasons. One, the rim of shield would put pressure on the frame arms and put a possible point pressure on the sides of your head. Second, a tight seal around the shield would be broken negating the respirator protection. If the shield is to be used as a direct line particle protector as when grinding or wire brushing, then the respirator is being used as a face shield and small frame glasses like the Flex Frame could be used.
