Like it or not, face masks are here to stay for at least the foreseeable future. Companies are making face masks more stylish, but it's not so much about style as it is about safety. With the vaccine rollout slowly making the world a bit safer and more open for entertaining and travel, it's important that you don't let your guard down. Whether you're feeling more comfortable about going out to eat or you're finally ready to make that cross-country trip to see your parents, SureWay Health's Patriot Mask will help ensure you're doing so safely, while supporting American business.
The Patriot Mask is an N95 respirator that is 100% manufactured and distributed in the United States. At the start of the pandemic, LED lighting manufacturer ALG wanted to contribute to the effort, so it converted its manufacturing lines to start making personal protective gear (PPE). SureWay Health, meanwhile, pivoted from distributing consumer electronics to sending millions of masks, gloves, gowns, and other PPE all over the country. Now, the two companies have joined forces to manufacture and distribute the Patriot Mask. The mask is manufactured in Ohio and distributed nationwide from Michigan, making it an indelible symbol of American pluck in the face of a crisis, all while creating high-paying jobs across the midwest.
The Patriot Mask has been approved to exceed CDC and NIOSH inhalation and exhalation resistance testing requirements, helping to protect wearers from airborne bacteria. The mask performs at 99% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) and 99.7% Particle Filter Efficiency according to studies by ICS Laboratories and SGS IBR Laboratories, making it a stalwart defense while traveling, eating out, or shopping.
The Patriot Mask is also designed for comfort. The cup-shaped mask is available in both small and regular sizes and has ultra-elastic nylon headbands that form a secure seal on any face. Plus, an adjustable galvanized iron-nose clip wraps gently around your nose to form a more custom and secure fit while the inner spandex foam sponge bar adds to your comfort.
Every Patriot Mask box comes with 25 masks to keep you and your family geared up for a sustainable amount of time. If you're looking to stay safe while supporting American businesses, look no further than the Patriot Mask. Learn how you can support the initiative here.
