Covid Masks

Covid Masks

You have found this page from a 3d barcode on a facemask.

We have produced some FFP2 facemasks for staff and clients showing this message:

I AM WEARING THIS FOR YOU

Why have we done this?

To be honest we do not feel that wearing a face mask is much of an impostion on personal freedom - but also that many that people are wearing masks that are pretty useless in their protection levels.

So, we have decided to provide something a bit better...

We feel that paper masks are a complete waste of time so wanted to provide safer ones to staff and clients. These masks are 3 layered, washable and offer the second highest level of protection - FFP2. (FFP3 being the highest)

We also feel that all of us have a duty to wear face masks to help protect those around us.

We hope you agree.

(if you would like one - get in touch - or if you would like to get some for you business go here)

 

FAQ's on Face masks

Smaller droplets, called aerosols, can stay in the air indoors for at least 5 minutes, and often much longer if there is no fresh air. Face coverings reduce the dispersion of these droplets, meaning if you're carrying the virus, you're less likely to spread it when you exhale.

For more information about three layer face masks - please see the WHO movide here: https://youtu.be/iYE0A-5wd14 

We understand that many people do not like being told what to do. We do appreciate that. 

However, we think that wearing a mask isn’t a major impingement on anyone’s personal freedoms, and let's face it, if by just wearing a mask in every setting you can, you will be doing society a service.

If you care about people around you; your family, friends, and neighbours you owe it to them to agree not to be part of the transmission problem.

We know that some people are completely against mask wearing and of course if you have a medical condition that means your breathing is already difficult then you should seek medical advice about wearing face masks.

Frankly, and of course this is just our opinion, there isn’t any excuse for anyone not to care about their fellow man, woman or child.

We urge you wear your masks in every setting.

Face coverings can help us protect each other and reduce the spread of the disease whether or not you are suffering from coronavirus.

Remember that you could be carrying the virus and spreading it around unwittingly. You can be a carrier and not show any symptoms.

Surely wearing a face mask wouldn’t too much of a problem?

Recent research evaluated the survival of the COVID-19 virus on different surfaces and reported that the virus can remain viable for up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel, up to four hours on copper, and up to 24 hours on cardboard.

Not very good news really.

In poorly ventilated rooms the amount of virus in the air can build up, increasing the risk of spreading COVID-19, especially if there are lots of infected people in the room. The virus can also remain in the air after an infected person has left.

By reducing the transmissible air borne particles and droplets you are making your environment safer for both you and for others.

Best bet? - Keep the air moving

Open the windows frequently, this helps refresh the air which maybe carrying Covid19 viruses. You will need at least two windows open so that the incoming fresh air can carry out the tainted air.

Ideally you need a HVAC system – you will have seen these large, suspended pipes in warehouses and supermarkets. These are expensive but very good at changing the air in rooms and spaces – often several times an hour. Research has shown that you need to completely change the air in a room 6 times in each hour to have any effect on airborne viruses.

Often though and certainly in our case our building is not suitable for these types of installations.

Why not ask your employer to invest in air filtration equipment. We have installed AeraMax Pureview (A reseller link is HERE – others are available, just do a search for Aeramax)
