Abstract : The invention relates to diffusion type protective enclosures for protecting human beings or animals from the effects of atmospheric pollution in the form of gases, aerosols, smokes, or bacteria. The authors have devised a protector operating on a different principle, namely diffusion. Utilized is a relatively thin fibrous material of such area that the removal of carbon dioxide and its replacement by oxygen takes place by diffusion with no necessity for a net flow of air through the filter. Thus, infants or animals can simply be placed in the protector and need exert no more effort than is involved in normal breathing.
