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.

No. Glasses may fit inside the mask, as mine do, but the earpieces break the seal so the respirator lets unfiltered air in. Best respirator I've used, though.
