Cheap KN95 masks at Bunnings
Plenty of stock at my locals
Oof…prices have fallen hard…
Still along way to go to. Was $11 for 20 one year ago.
Pre world wide COVID ☹️
no kidding :-)
Note the old masks have a vent, which is frowned upon nowadays. So I wear a surgical mask over the top, or at least I will if we ever get covid loose in WA again.
But hey, with increased economies of scale, we should eventually expect to see prices lower than pre-covid.
@manic: It may spike again as Europe goes into their second wave. Some countries ate close to running out like Belgium.

Come on OP, N95 != KN95
Haha my bad, mods please update to KN95 :)
Still cheap though!
Done. For future reference, you can edit your deal after posting. Thanks.
I'm sure OP knows how ;)
Exhibit: A, B, C
Thanks for pointing it out
Care to let the rest of us in on the difference with regards to covid protection.
Do not buy the other kn95 brand available (Wellcare) on the Bunnings website if you have a normal to large sized face:
The Wellcare brand has verrrry short elastic strap length, and doesn't fit my face at all.
These ones have a short elastic strap too. Bought a pack a while back when they were $19 or something ridiculous like that and have not used them because they dig into my ears and start to hurt after a few minutes.
Yeah same, these Sojo branded masks hurt my ears after a while also.
The Wellcare brand is way worse.
Cheap though, I paid $15 about 2-3 weeks ago for these ones.
So better for the kids then?
Yeah I'd say so, I mean it's $5 so worth a try.
These are glorified surgical masks due to fit and construction as per a wide sample of fit testing.
I don't trust KN95 much either compared to P2 or N95, but relatively speaking I trust them way more than those washable reusable masks that cost $10 the price with bs marketing names for bacteria stopping fabric.
Correct. Just saying, these will be similar effectiveness to a surgical mask. Which is more effective than most washable masks out there.
If handled and worn correctly, and disposed of appropriately once soiled.
Just realised these are "respirators" as compared with masks.
Would these be good for woodworking/sanding?
Wouldn’t provide a tight seal on your face, if that is what you are after.
Better off going to Total Tools if that's what you're after. They have a (somewhat more expensive) much larger selection of higher quality certified P2/N95. Don't risk your lungs.
Single packs are a buck instore too
These things are going to cause a lot of problems with landfill. Reusable is better
What’s the problem with landfill? We‘ll all be there soon enough.
One day Wall-E will go through the landfill, neatly sort all the masks, and they'll be used for something else, using some machine we haven't invented yet.
Thanks for posting! I bought the willcare ones 5 for $19 a few months ago and they're great!! The ear things are a bit tight though.
Just bought 50 masks as I'm sure Melbourne will be back in lockdown around January/Feb.
Thanks OP! Stocking up for the third wave!
Scumbags were charging $25 for these at the start, profiteering pricks
I work at Bunnings and thought they were expensive so out of curiosity I went to write one off to see how much it costs us. Surprisingly we were selling them at cost at the original price. ( If the write off price was accurate).
Hey, how much authority do store managers have to buy food for their workers using company money, and how often?
I'm not in that position so I'm afraid I can't answer.
