UYN Community Mask
BREAK THE CHAIN
It could be that you are infected with Covid-19 but are not showing any symptoms. You don’t know you’re infected, so you could pass the new coronavirus on to others unnoticed.
In order to protect others from infection, you have to wear a face mask. The recommendation is for as many people as possible to wear a face mask, because this at least enables droplets and particles of mucus to be caught to some extent. The chain of infection is broken.
When sneezing, virus droplets can reach a speed of around 45 metres per second without a face mask and fly quite a long way. Generally speaking, people are infected if an infected person speaks, sneezes or coughs in their vicinity. The virus then passes through the air directly onto the mucous membranes of the other person.
Due to worldwide supply bottlenecks of medical and FFP masks and the increasing prices being charged for such masks, it is important to ensure they are primarily made available to medical personnel. This is because the recommended safety distance can rarely be maintained by those working in hospitals, homes or retirement homes.
This is why UYN® has decided to take action. Break the chain with us. Unleash your nature.
“NOT A MEDICAL PRODUCT – NOT A PIECE OF PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT”
The Community Mask is not a medical product and does not provide protection from infection. By wearing it, it is possible to reduce the speed of respiratory flow and saliva/mucus droplet ejection, thereby helping to reduce the further spread of Covid-19. However, the Community Mask has not been shown to have any protective effect in a medical sense.
The required distance of one to two metres and regular hand washing is still the best protection from infection.
The three-dimensional knitted structure is more densely knitted in the mouth and nose area: this reduces the speed of respiratory flow and saliva/mucus droplet ejection. But the UYN® Community Mask still allows you to breathe easily, so the mask can be worn during sports activities, too.
Thanks to processing with Texlyte Nano, the UYN® Community Mask is moisture-repellent. The water-repellent property of the yarn is permanent and is not affected by repeated washing. Texlyte Nano does not store moisture but dries very quickly. For pleasant wear comfort.
The UYN® Community Mask fits perfectly around mouth and nose, sealing nicely at the edges and interrupting the airflow. The ergonomic three-dimensional shape allows you to breathe comfortably without feeling boxed in.
Its fit makes the Community Mask the new darling among mask wearers because its ergonomic design and anatomically shaped mouth section are combined with a tight-fitting but elastic neck section. As a result, the Community Mask stays firmly in position and provides protection for others while at the same time allowing freedom of movement.
- Highly elastic ergonomic nose shape
- Flex Ribs for a perfect fit
- Flexible and soft ear loops
- Breathable 3D breathing ribs let the skin breathe
- Particularly densely knitted mouth and nose sections
- Highly elastic band at the neck for optimum wear comfort
The result is a face mask recommended for use during sporting activity and everyday life in the community. It is not a disposable product, but can be washed at 60° and used again and again, without altering its properties. The refined design, availability of plenty of different sizes for children and adults (four sizes, from XS to L) and different colours allowing the wearer to feel at ease, so the mask doesn’t feel like a foreign body.
