Covid19 is getting more and more serious on a daily basis. Businesses are closing for an indeterminate period. Some, however, can’t. Consequently, the wearing of gloves, introduction of Perspex screens, and promotion of hand-hygiene is becoming common. At a comparatively early stage of the Covid19 pandemic, we started implementing rules for keeping our staff safe in the factory and offices. We developed masks that use multiple layers of our fabrics.They have two purposes:
- To catch any coughs or sneezes, and any other droplets that leave our mouths.
- To reduce hand to face contact.
Several local businesses got in touch about our masks, after seeing them. Then with the government’s call to do whatever it takes to help and make people’s lives better, we started selling them to both the public, and to businesses.
It is not an N95 mask. It won’t stop you getting Covid19, but it will reduce the risk of spreading it. If we protect everyone, we end up well protected ourselves.
It takes no resources away from our health services who depend on high quality PPE.
You’ll still need to wash your hands thoroughly and use sanitiser. But, when you find yourself unexpectedly in a crowd or having to work at closer quarters than you would like, a Washable Comfort mask brings some peace of mind. They fold and pop in your pocket or handbag ready for when you would like to use them.
The outer layer of the Masks are made of an Irish Linen fusion fabric that is colourful and durable. We have lined them with 100% pure Irish Linen. It is held in place by 2 elastic straps, so you can leave it around your neck, just lifting the top elastic to secure a neat fit when you need it.
Linen's natural properties give it an edge over other fabrics in these times. Linen is;
- Machine Washable
- Safe for the tumble drier
