New in UK – Safe & Reusable Masks for Non-medical Workplaces .. Ideal for laundries?

SaferMask Group is a new UK company that has been formed to conquer the rise of the Coronavirus and protect workers in non-medical workplaces, social and urban situations, such as laundries. The company was partly established out of personal experience from a close relative’s frustration, as one of the UK’s leading oncologists, and their lack of PPE in the frontline.

The Group claims to have reached an exclusive distribution agreement with a leading textile manufacturing company to market their protective, community face masks throughout the UK. The three-layer masks have been extensively tested and accredited by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) for Anti-Bacterial Performance and Water Repellency and by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for Bacterial Filtration and Differential Pressure.

The masks are also stated to be ideal for laundries, because they are reusable and fully washable. Each of the two masks that comprise one pack are designed to be worn for 30 days and washed daily. The wash / wear cycle between the two masks means that a pack of two will therefore last 60 days reducing the cost to less than half the price of a typical single use mask.
