The year of 2020 has been quite different than what many of us had expected. With New Year’s wishes seeming like another lifetime, wearing masks, having our temperature checked, and getting our meals to-go have become a norm. However, even with the normalcy of our current situation, there is still much unknown about our future: whether we will continue to move closer to normal life, or we will have to go back into quarantine. Regardless, thankfully, there are materials available to help protect us during these uncertain times.

Virus Guard Mask Material is a fabric-like material that also has filtering capabilities. It can be made into a mask — no other fabric materials needed — sewn and manipulated like any other type of fabric. Masks made from this material can be hand-washed (machine washing isn’t advisable) multiple times for many uses. Instead of searching “masks for sale” or “where to buy masks” make your own!

Filters For Fabric Masks

Virus Guard Fabric Mask Inserts is a mesh like fabric that can be cut to fit into any mask. Filters can be hand-washed (do not put them in the washer) and can be re-worn for several uses.

Allergy Guard a window screen mesh material can be placed within partition frames to create a means of filtering between work spaces and other areas. This can be helpful for office buildings, medical facilities, and any other place that could benefit from partitions. Allergy Guard is a see-through, talk-through material that can provide air filtration protection in a variety of situations.

HVAC Filters

HVAC systems can make stopping the spread of COVID-19 difficult. That is why we suggest installing Allergy Guard window screen within vents to catch the virus from circulating through hospitals and other medical facilities, office buildings, homes, and anywhere else that has a central heating and cooling system. Help stop the spread of coronavirus and other allergens with Allergy Guard.

Window Screens
