After all the “new normals” we were forced to get used to this year and the daily confrontation of airborne “enemies” our global situation needs no introduction.
In South Africa, the pandemic has not only exposed our healthcare-based vulnerabilities but also threatened our fragile business and employment situation. This combination of disease and close-to-home liabilities sparked the merger of businesses, investors, and technology suppliers to take a leap of faith and invest in the local manufacturing and production of respirator face masks.
This is how Siyakholwa and Team came to life of survivors and victims !
The effectiveness of masks as the first line of defense has been widely documented and advised. Yet, while such a simple piece of equipment can provide significant protection, many are still left without it including teachers, old-age homes, medical workers,vulnerable families, frontline workers and many more.
Our masks that we are distributing
According to local regulations and FFP2 standards.
What makes the FFP2 face mask better than a normal loose-fitting face mask?
- Well, respirators like the FFP2 are tight-fitting masks designed to create a facial seal with non-valved respirators providing two-way protection filtering the inflow and outflow of air.
- With a maximum leakage of 8% and a minimum of 94% of inflow air filtered these types of masks are designed to protect the wearer (when worn properly).
Who should wear a respirator? In short, anyone who wants to protect themselves and in particular healthcare workers and caregivers who work in high-risk transmission areas.
