How to make your RZ Mask more effective
Do you already own or are you considering purchasing an RZ Mesh Respirator Mask? As you probably realized, these high-quality reusable masks have valves. While these masks are extremely effective at protecting the wearer, the valves make them ineffective at preventing the spread of virus-carrying particles because they allow droplets to escape the mask that can put others nearby at risk. A growing number of counties, states, and airlines are banning these masks because they are not effective at preventing the spread.
The RZ Mask Exhalation Valve Caps are the answer to this restriction. These caps do not allow any air to pass through the valves and force your exhaled breath back through the mask filter. This design helps prevent airborne particulates and germs from escaping the mask so that your RZ mask is effective at preventing the spread.
