Face covers are the talk of the town right now.
In an effort to help fight the spread of COVID-19 and protect medical professionals, first responders, and the general public during this time of crisis, Platatac is adapting our business by temporarily refocusing and dedicating a number of our sales team and manufacturing capability to support the fight against this pandemic so we can get back to normal.
Here at Platatac we have the capability to produce quality, made right here in Melbourne, Australia, face covers to do our bit for public safety. With every purchase of the PLATATAC Face Mask, you're not only doing the righty by protecting yourself, but you're also not going jack on everyone else. You'll achieve this by preventing the spread of potential COVID-19 aerosol or droplets and allowing Law Enforcement members to do their jobs and focus on crime, rather than fining you for not following the rules. You will also be environmentally conscious by cutting down on land fill and litter by using a reusable and sustainable mask rather than a single use mask. Because of your support, we are able to keep Australians in work during these trying times.
The materials used to make these two layer non-medical grade masks are reusable, comfortable, machine washable and ergonomically designed. The liner material reduces moisture build-up. Colours will vary based on availability, the construction will vary between nylon cotton or polyester cotton blend, also based on material availability.
These face masks are not a replacement for medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and should not be used in circumstances where medical-grade PPE is recommended. These masks have not been certified as a medical device (or similar), nor has it been approved for any specific use by TGA or other regulating entity… but it is better than a folded tea towel or a cut up sock.
The face mask must be washed before initial use. Wash your hands before donning and doffing. Wash after each use with soap and hot water.
