Locally-produced, environmentally-friendly and comfortable filter face masks

Healing the nation with #Masks4All

An eco-friendly solution to the current global crisis

Brits D15™ Filter Face Mask Kits have been specifically-designed toslow the spread of COVID-19. The masks go above and beyond the DTIC guidelines of 75% holdout for particles above 5μm, utilising a purpose-built filter system that traps 90% of particles that may be carrying the disease.

The mask system is comfortable and reusable, providing a cost-effective solution to flattening the curve.

The Reusable, Eco-Friendly Principle

These masks consist of a outer mask fabric profile, a built-in D15™ Filter and an inner soft mesh fabric. Together, these form a reusable mask (up to 90 washes) which can be sterilised on a daily basis. Our masks are made from up to 80% recycled raw material, and are 100% recyclable.

Brits Nonwoven D15™ DIY Mask Kit

The D15™ Filter Face Mask Kit has been designed to allow you to make your own face masks. Whether you are a small or informal business with sewing capabilities, or an individual looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to protect yourself and those around you, the D15™ DIY Face Mask Kit is the ideal solution. When used correctly, the masks meet all government and hygiene requirements for maximum safety.

The mask kits comprise a 3-layer design and a built-in D15™ Filter. The design includes the outer polyester fabric, the D15™ Filter, and an inner soft mesh lining. The innovative design has a beak shape that covers the nose, mouth and chin, leaving enough space around your mouth to ensure optimal comfort and breathability.

Modes of Transmission of the COVID-19 Virus

Respiratory infections can be transmitted through droplets of different sizes. When droplet particles are >5-10µm in diameter, they are referred to as respiratory droplets, and droplet nuclei when <5µm in diameter. According to current evidence, COVID-19 in the public domain is primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets. Droplet nuclei mainly occur in hospitals, where they have specialised masks. The primary mode of infection for the public is therefore respiratory droplets >5µm in size, which are generated by talking, coughing and sneezing.

A key to reducing the rate of infection is to disrupt this transport system for the virus by controlling respiratory droplets.

The filter system for masks that we have created is designed to do exactly that, trapping any particle 5µm and above. The mask (filter + envelope fabrics) actually traps many smaller particles as well, but the real holdout is targeted to be 90% for particles above 5µm.

Since the introduction of the D15™ Filter system, much work has been done to develop minimum requirements for COVID-19 protective masks for the public, resulting in the DTIC Recommended Guidelines for Fabric Face Masks.

D15™ Filter SANAS Performance Test Results

The D15™ Filter complies with the filter requirements as stated in the DTIC Fabric Face Mask Guidelines as published on 24 April 2020. The filter rating scores a 4 as per the industry requirements. Testing was performed against the Brits Nonwoven Private specifications, the DTIC Guidelines and the newly introduced rating system for filters and fabrics to be used for public face masks.

These guidelines set out a 75% minimum holdout for 5µm particles; see below for the rating scale and test results for the D15™ Filter.

Results for the D15™ Filter were as follows:
