Whether you have opened your doors already, or are planning to do so over the coming weeks, there will be numerous challenges ahead in keeping your staff and customers feeling safe and comfortable in this new socially distanced environment we find ourselves in.
Face masks are emerging as one of the most powerful weapons to fight Covid-19, with growing evidence that facial coverings help prevent transmission — even if an infected wearer is in close contact with others, plastic face shields do not seem to offer the same protection, as one Swiss hotel found out recently, according to an article in the Telegraph.
Fashionizer has reduced all of our high-quality, washable face masks by over 25% to £10 each for Hospitality and Catering News Readers when using the code 10FORH&C. Should you wish to order 50 or more masks, please contact us directly for samples, we may also be able to offer you a further bulk discount. We are also happy to discuss bespoke options.
Not all face masks are the same, and there is more than one reason to consider buying our attractive and cost-effective reusable masks:
- Disposable masks are more expensive in the long run – we may need to use these for quite a few months to come, until a vaccine is distributed. If you use our washable face masks, they are guaranteed to last at least 30 washes, this means that you will need only 5% of the quantity compared to disposable ones. Even though they cost more initially, they will end up saving you money.
- Disposable masks are not biodegradable, and it could take up to 500 years for face masks made of polypropylene to degrade. One study by UCL estimates that in the UK alone, if every person used a single-use face mask a day for a year, it would create an additional 66,000 tonnes of contaminated waste and 57,000 tonnes of plastic packaging.
- The “medical look” might be great in a hospital environment to give confidence to patients, but not necessarily the image you want to encourage people to feel comfortable in a hospitality establishment.
- Unlike disposable masks that are often scratchy and uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time, fabric face masks, are much more comfortable to wear, offering a combination of style and safety, and can be worn for 4 hours at a time. We have also tested their performance with Nelson Labs.
Our face masks are constructed for comfort, style and safety, based on W.H.O recommendations and have a nose wire to ensure good fit and to assist with fit when wearing glasses. We have many styles and colours in stock.
Here are some comments on our masks:
