McDAVID Sport Face Mask (Swirl)
McDavid’s Sports Face Mask helps protect athletes from the spread of COVID-19 and give people the confidence they need to step back on the field. Using Sports Face Masks helps to flatten the curve while still reserving medical-grade masks for first-responders and those in the medical field. Research shows that cloth masks can diminish the dispersement of nasal and saliva droplets.
The resuable Sports Face Mask is made of high quality polyester lycra for a soft and comfortable fit. It feels ultra-soft against the skin and offers an ergonomic, comfortable fit thanks to the stretch lycra band around the head instead of ears. Reusable and washable: Wash these masks in the washing machine at 60 degrees to sanitise for the next wear.
< Why wear masks during sports? >
A joint study by the KU Leuven (Belgium) and the TU Eindhoven (The Netherlands) confirmed that droplets remain in a cloud behind runners, walkers, cyclists, etc. The risk of contamination is the biggest when people are just behind each other, in each other’s slipstream. A safe distance is further than the 1-2 meter as prescribed in different countries. Scientists advise 4-5 meter, for running and slow biking it should be 10 meters and more, depending on speed. When this is not possible in many sports, using the McDavid Sport Face Mask can reduce the risk of spread.
< Innovative 3 Layer System >
The breathable, universal protective Sport Face Mask consists of a three-layer system at the mouth/nose. The inner lining layer is antimicrobial for added protection and hygiene. The middle layer is an antimicrobial silver PET filter which is 96.6% effective to pneumonia. The upper layer (shell) is water resistant, dust-proof, and breathable.
Recycled PET Textile
The middle layer filter is an antimicrobial PET-fabric containing AgPURE™ nano silver. Recycled PET textile is an eco-friendly fabric made of recycled PET bottles. The fabric has a coating that is water-repellant, waterproof and breathable. The coating is non-toxic and Azo-free, cold and oil resistant. The fabric was tested* to check bacterial growth. After 100 washing cycles, the filter still show significant antimicrobial activity and reduced 99% or more bacteria of the test strain (s.aureus & k.pneumoniae)
*Tested by the German Hohenstein Institute during the joint research project “Feldstudie Antimikrobielle Textilien”.
