Be safe and be heard

Our large custom filters allow greater air flow, which optimizes acoustic resonance so that your voice will be heard loud and clear while your face will remain cool and comfortable.

Elastomeric face seal for maximum safety and comfort

We believe that safety should not come at the cost of comfort, and have created a mask that fits the needs and faces of care providers. A recent study showed that after one month of using reusable masks, 0 out of 2000 healthcare providers chose to return to using disposable N95 masks!
