8 reasons I choose an X-Static Silverguard mask

23 Feb 2121

Dr Paul Freinkel uses X-Static masks
  • Most importantly they’re breathable and don’t MIST UP MY GLASSES. The masks have a nose-bridge seal that prevents fogging of spectacles, but is strong enough to hold the mask up over the bridge of the nose, even while I’m talking.
  • Secondly, they deflect water droplets, which is crucial if I’m around a patient who is sneezing and coughing, and may have Covid19.
  • They have an adjustable strap extender that ensures a comfortable, but snug fit over my nose and mouth, without squeezing my ears.
  • I think it’s amazing that they’re manufactured locally, and are eco-friendly!
  • These masks, and technology have been tried, tested and proven to extremes worldwide. The Xstatic technology is registered as an antimicrobial with the US EPA also received OEKO-TEX Standard 100 accreditation which certifies that it supports human ecology through bio-compatibility and the absence of harmful substances in the manufacturing process.
  • I can wear mine comfortably for long periods, which is really handy when I have a day full of seeing patients, up close.
  • They are used in many SA hospitals.
  • The X-STATIC technology eliminates odour and keeps the mask smelling fresher for longer. even after multiple wear cycles between washings.
  • Silverguard is made by permanently bonding 100% pure metallic silver to the surface of a fibre, and has active antimicrobial properties built in to inhibit growth of bacteria on the  fabric.

We believe in these masks so much that we’re making them available to our patients.
