Made to Order
If you can wait an additional 1-2 weeks, we have fabric available to make the following masks "to order".
During this crisis, N95 masks must be reserved for healthcare professionals who need to protect against COVID-19 while in close contact with patients.
Our protective masks provide a significant level of effectiveness compared to many "homemade" masks. They were developed in consultation with surgeons who are actively managing COVID-19 issues, and who now wear Spunky Masks when not in their hospital setting.
Throughout our design process we have made every effort to reduce the risk of spreading the virus and to balance maximizing your protection with providing the breathability and comfort required for most day-to-day activities.
Our masks’ protective features are outlined below to allow you to make an informed choice. Note that Inclusive by Design Inc. (IBDI) cannot guarantee the level of protection offered by Spunky Masks. Please read the instructions (below) for proper use of the masks.
Similarities to N-95 protective masks:
While they do not achieve the same level of filtration as N95 masks, Spunky Masks have a number of similar features.
|Fully covers nose and mouth.|
|Fitted design for a snug fit between the mask and face.|
|Mask can be molded at the top for a customized fit (nosepiece is not visible on the IBDI mask).|
|Shell and lining are both interfaced with a non-woven layer.|
|Provides room around mouth and nose to allow comfortable breathing and minimize moisture.|
|Pocket for adding extra layers of protections as required|
|e.g., disposable filters or washable Spunky Filters can easily be fitted into the sleeve and removed before the mask is laundered.|
|Lightweight fabric, 100% cotton (comfort and protection) lined with non-woven material (protection).|
|Internal elastic helps ensure a snug fit against each side of the face.|
|Elastic straps are adjustable to ensure a snug, yet comfortable, fit.|
|Machine wash/dry. (The nosepiece does not need to be removed.)|
|The mask must cover both the nose and mouth and should fit snugly all around the face.|
|Check for a proper seal - hold mask, exhale and note if air escapes around edges. Adjust the mask as necessary:|
|The top of the mask is pliable - the nosepiece can be shaped around the top of the nose;|
|Each of the straps is adjustable and should be tightened/loosened as needed;|
|Note that a hat or facial hair may interfere with a proper seal and may need to be removed to achieve a seal;|
|Do not continue to use the mask if it is wet or dirty.|
|Launder or hand-wash after each use, using soap or detergent. (High temperatures will eventually compromise the elastic components.)|
|Note that rinsing or soaking in hot water will not effectively eliminate the COVID-19 virus, but soaps and detergents are very effective, regardless of water temperature.|
|Wash hands after handling a used mask.|
|For additional protection, spread a filter media in the inside pocket (e.g., one or two Spunky Filters) before putting on the mask.|
|To maximize the benefit of the extra layer(s), spread it across as much of the mask as possible so that air goes through, rather than around, it.|
|Washing: launder or hand-wash using detergent (gentle cycle only for Spunky Filters).|
|Drying: machine or air dry Spunky Masks; air dry Spunky Filters.|
|Do not use bleach.|
|Iron shell/lining if desired; do not allow iron to touch elastic headstraps. Do not iron Spunky Filters.|
|The easiest way to achieve best-looking results is to smooth out washed masks and filters while wet, and set them out to air dry.|
|Note: avoid high wash/dry temperatures to preserve the life of elastic components.|
