Final Product Design

Design Brief

To get a product that was comfortable to wear everyday, for extended periods of time, yet could prevent the user from breathing in airborne droplets caused by people sneezing and coughing in public. Reusable design to ensure minimal environmental impact.

Design of Mask Body

The Dartex material that we used is designed as a medical grade fabric to come into contact with human skin without causing an allergic reaction. It has a double sided construction which ensures a soft fabric surface against the skin whilst outside it is a wipe down polymer surface. It has a good degree of elasticity and is lightweight.

The elastic nature of the Dartex type material allows for a nose bridge piece to be incorporated into the top section of the mask. It is essential that each time the mask is worn that the

Design of Replaceable Filter

The filtration system was designed around a specially made filter material which is manufactured by blending, pressing, fulling and drying, to produce a non-woven homogeneous mat of fiber. This material is processed to ensure the perfect thickness and overall shape to fit inside our purpose made injection molded filter housing.

To ensure that the user could get enough air when taking a deep breath it was deemed necessary to have a twin filter design. Extensive testing proved the size and shape of the required filters and housing to ensure ease of replacement at the same time as offering a comfortable user experience.

The two filter housings push fit into a purpose made, soft polyurethane injection molded receptacle.

Easy to Clean / Disinfect

All of the materials used in the construction of the mask are able to be readily disinfected to ensure continued protection from airborne infections. It is recommended that the mask body and filter housing are cleaned with an anti-bacterial spray daily when the filters are removed, binned, and replaced.

Helps Reduce Spread

The design using a twin filter inlet ensures that the main facial area of the mask remains uncontaminated. This means that when the user touches their facial area they are not helping to spread the contamination. This is especially evident with children, who are used to putting fingers in their mouths etc.
