We know there isn't a cure for COVID-19 yet, but we wanted to source a face mask for you that we felt confident would be comfortable to wear, whist offering the protection that you need against transmission of virus and bacteria, especially as face masks have become compulsory in the UK.
Here we have given you a little more information about the AirGill Mask for any questions that you may have. We have them available to Purchase by Clicking HERE
We work closely with our Swedish friends at Polygiene who have created a fantastic treatment for fabric with antiviral properties called ViralOff.
Polygiene ViralOff is a brand for a treatment of textiles and other products that reduces viruses by 99% in two hours*
Polygiene started in the care segment during the fight against SARS in 2004. Thanks to their background, they have already gone through the necessary techniques, skills, methods, and processes needed to launch ViralOff® which we are pleased to offer in mask form.
What are the benefits?
ViralOff has a 99% reduction of viruses, in a textile or material, over two hours, according to a standard ISO18184:2019 test.
Does it work against COVID-19?
The simple answer is yes, it does.
It has been tested the active ingredient against Influenza A, BirdFlu, Norovirus and Corona (SARS) over the years, and in all cases, has achieved 99% levels of reduction.
How long does it last?
