The 3 layer tube mask was created when it was evident there were insufficient products on the market that would provide great protection against the transmission of viruses (COVID 19 in particular), were safe near airways, had proper testing, while being environmentally friendly.
The 3 layer tube mask is produced with ethical North American labour standards and European quality materials.
What makes this product unique and top of the line?
Rigorous laboratory and wash and wear performance testing was part of every decision; from materials, and fit to ease of laundering. The 3 layer tube mask went through 50 washes, 20 wash and wear tests, 6 filtration materials analyzed, inner and outer layer fabrics reviewed and even the elastic and drawcord locks tested.
Everything was considered: 8 different drawcord options were tested before the final decision was made and 10 different drawcord locks were reviewed (including testing wearing gloves and mittens to ensure outdoor/indoor products could be adjusted easily in cold weather while keeping fingers warm).
The important characteristics that we considered in relation to the 3 layer tube masks during research and development were:
Some of the wear testing included winter biking, taking a 5 hour flight, wearing it indoors and out, using it with ski helmets and goggles, inside an arena, with glasses on, on adults and children, before and after washing, in cold and warm weather (-21 to +22 degrees Celsius), on men and women, and with a multitude of material combinations.
We ran laboratory testing, and in the end, created one of the world’s best products on the market.
