Premium Face Masks for Coronavirus (Covid 19)
As a paramedic, on a daily basis I have been seeing firsthand our massive shortage of PPE, especially face masks. Many of the homemade face masks on the market either A) do not have enough layers to provide protection, or B) do not fit properly, or C) a combination of both. Working in the medical field and having an immunocompromised wife, I set out to make a mask that could be used on a daily basis, both at home and on the job
Through all of this, I have come up with my premium face masks.
There are 2 types of masks in 4 available sizes:
The Standard Mask is made with one layer of cotton fabric on the outside, two layers of a pressed fabric that function as filters, and the backing is felt which is also pressed not woven, so it is a more effective barrier. There is then a continuous piece of soft elastic fed through the mask, which creates a loop that sits on top of your, and then ties comfortably behind your neck. I designed the elastic to fit in this way so it takes the strain off of your ears, which can cause discomfort when wearing standard masks over time.
The Pocket Style Mask has all the same features as the Standard listed above, plus a convenient pocket made the user can add extra filtration if so desired; such as carbon filters, or even an N95 mask with some minor modifications. With an N95 within the Pocket Mask, my masks have been able to pass rigorous hospital level tests! The Pocket Masks now come with 1 free disposable N95 filter, that are custom made for my masks. Specifications on filtration qualities of the N95 are listed below; extra filters can be purchased as well.
We have also recently adding mask personalization! We can monogram your name on your mask, making sure no one ever mistakes your mask for theirs. We can also add designs like a heart or smile to the masks, truly making it something of your own design. Please contact us for special pricing details.
