Rockledge, FL: Blinds Of All Kinds, a window treatment and custom drapery company, announced today that they are partnering with Health First in producing covers for N95 masks.
After hearing about University of Florida Health’s Department of Anesthesiology’s research using a two-ply spun polypropylene material already found in hospitals and medical facilities, Health First, reached out to ask Blinds of All Kinds to manufacture covers for the N95 masks. The two-ply material is normally used to surround surgical instrument trays before they pass through gas sterilization or an autoclave. Health First has supplied Blinds Of All Kinds with the material and prototype templates to mass produce thousands of masks.
“When we found out the impact Covid-19 could potentially have on our community we immediately realized we could help by turning our drapery workroom into a mask making assembly line.” says Valerie Rauha, General Manager at Blinds of All Kinds.
“Due to our long-standing partnership with Health First we knew we wanted to offer our services to them to support our community and front-line medical teams through this time of uncertainty.” says Christine Brown, Sales Manager at Blinds Of All Kinds.
