In times of global pandemic, all governments all around the world said that is mandatory to wear a facemask. This creates a big problem with trash, also many people believe that a simple surgical mask doesn’t really work. UM System comes with the idea of building and producing facemask with changeable filters and UV-C technology that is purifying the air all day long.
How does it work?
When you breathe air is sended thru a filter and two purifiers that are killing the bacteria and filtering the air. The company states that this technlology provides high protection from dust, tobacco, and other particles that might hurt our lungs. This device can work up to 6 hours and filter the air. What is the best that this avoids misting glasses and you don’t feel any discomfort while using.
A great feature of this mask is that you can customize the design of this device. You can change the color of the front shells. Also, it can be very cheap to wear this mask, the company states that the average cost of using normal disposable surgical masks is over $500 per year. UVMask year use costs are only $100, for me it is a great deal.
What about health and protection certificates?
“UVMask has been tested by SGS to be completely safe according to UL1598 CRD (dated 2020-6-29), meaning the fully light sealed design guarantees UV light will not leak out from the Sterile-Vortex.”
“The CE-FFP2 (EU Standards N95 equivalent) passive air filter has been tested according to the EN 149-2001+A1-2009 standards.”
Those tests prove that this relatively new technology works and performs great.
This idea at Kickstarter found 14,404 backers that pledged $3,019,833. It proves that people need this sort of idea. Many people working all day long in facemasks are struggling with a comfortable and efficient way to protect themselves. This company saw a demand and came up with this solution. I think that it’s a great project, in the future we will see how it will perform.
