Bates Designs Medical Mask Donation

Please assist us in supplying our first responders, healthcare professionals, essential workers and our vulnerable citizens with PPE mask during this time of economic crisis. The Bates Foundation has been blessed to receive some fabric donations from local vendors. The remainder of the cost is being funded primarily by the Barbara Bates Foundation, family and friends. It is our desire to operate 3 shifts per day so we can distribute1000 mask daily. We can achieve this goal together! Please donate so we can replenish the Foundation funds and continue to give out mask at no cost to the people on the front lines. 

Barbara Bates is constructing PPE mask using high-efficiency material technology made in the USA. Nanofiber technology creates a very fine, continuous, resilient fiber that mechanically filters pollutants, maintaining its initial MERV 13 efficiency rating through multiple washes. N95 mask are so named because they are capable of filtering out 95% of large and small particles, including certain types of bacteria. 

Our goal is to provide our health care professionals, first responders, essential workers and at risk individuals with the most efficient, effective, and affordable constructed protective washable masks. The beauty of the washable fabric is that you can wash it as needed at your convenience. After multiple washes the fabric maintains its MERV Rating of 13 and continues to filter bacteria along with dust, lint, pollen, mold, pet dander, smoke, fumes, odors and viruses.

Bates mission is to provide PPE supplies of the highest quality, with unmatched and immediate delivery performance. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value developed by the ASHRAE. MERV ratings range from 1 to 16. The higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the air filter will be in trapping airborne contaminants and particles. For instance, a MERV 13 rating traps smaller airborne particles than a MERV 8. The material used by Bates has a MERV 13 rating and is the most efficient washable filter material on the market. These N95 mask will serve as a great help on the front line as they help to protect users by filtering out 95% of large and small particles, viruses, including certain types of bacteria.
