It Should Not Be So Hard to Protect Children
One of the most troubling aspects of the Omicron variant surge has been the increasing number of children’s infections. Thousands of children have ended up in the hospital. In addition to COVID, parents have to worry about worsening flu and Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) season, which is presenting huge challenges to children’s respiratory health.
Parents and caregivers have struggled to find quality masks for children. The absence of regulatory guidelines and standards for Children’s masks from US governmental agencies has led to customers purchasing counterfeit, fakes and/or substandard products. Furthermore, companies are selling dubious quality overseas product due to a shortage of made in the USA, high-quality respiratory protection. It has resulted in parents paying high prices for masks that do not adequately protect their children.
Aegle to the Rescue
Aegle’s number one priority is to provide the safest, most reliable, and affordable kid’s masks, 100% made in the USA. A manufacturer of NIOSH approved N95 respirators, Aegle created AegleKids product line of kids masks to protect children. Made with the same attention and care as our NIOSH-approved N95 respirators, our kids masks use 5-layers structure with high protection filtration materials to ensure maximum safety and minimal infectious disease transmission.
Aegle is leading efforts to create a US standard for children’s face coverings focusing on filtration, fit, breathability and comfort. In collaboration with University of Maryland’s (UMD) Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices, AegleKids masks will be used for testing by National Children’s Hospital in DC.
Our ear loop style masks have two different designs – ear-loop flat fold and KF94 (sometimes called boat style) – and come in two sizes are designed to meet daily needs of kids. Your kids will be comfortable wearing these masks in the classroom, on the playground, or when visiting vulnerable loved ones.
Aegle’s patent pending Authentication & Traceability technology prevents counterfeiting, provides complete transparency on testing performance and ensures supply-chain security. Every product package has an embedded NFC (near field communication) chip providing parents with peace of mind.
The power in our masks
AegleKids mask consists of five layers of unique non-woven materials, providing ultimate comfort, high efficiency filtration, excellent breathability, and a perfect fit for kids' faces. These are the same five layers found in our NIOSH-approved N95 masks.
Bendable nose-wires and comfortable ear-loops also enhance our snug fit design to minimize leakage, and maximize protection against harmful airborne particles.
The five-layered structure of our masks makes them different from other kids masks as each layer offers a unique property allowing them to filter a broad range of airborne particles and provide ultimate comfort.
The inner layer of AegleKids masks is a soft and sustainable odor-fighting fabric with patent-pending Acteev Protect technology built in. Unlike other topical treatments and coatings, Acteev does not wash away or flake off. The mask includes an absorbent layer for optimum comfort, outer protective non-woven layer, two layers of meltblown filtration media layers, which filters out more than 95% of 0.3 micron or bigger airborne particles, similar to N95 and KN95 masks.
Pre-order your masks
AegleKids' masks will come in two sizes to suit all family needs: Small masks (ideal for 2-7 year olds) and Medium masks (ideal for 8-12 year olds but also compatible for adults with smaller facial structures).
As a small US mask manufacturer, our team at Aegle has been working day and night to bring the safest possible masks to you. We now need your backing to get new production lines up and running to make these kids masks. We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the required capital for product launch. Once our Kickstarter goal is reached, we will begin immediately making and delivering your masks to you as soon as possible.
