Ziano di Fiemme – At the end of the testing phase, La Sportiva focuses on the industrialization and marketing of the Stratos Mask, revealing all the details of the eco-sustainable generic, hygienic protection mask for daily use.
“Stratos Mask is the mask that La Sportiva has designed for daily use in the coexistence phase with the COVID 19 virus. – Says company CEO Lorenzo Delladio – To contain the spread of coronavirus as much as possible, in fact, each of us must wear these protective devices to avoid inadvertently transmitting the virus to other people. The Stratos Mask ergonomically wraps the wearer’s face, avoiding the dispersion of saliva droplets that could potentially contain the virus. Comfort, stability and breathability are the elements that have challenged our research and development team."
The Stratos Mask is a safe, ergonomic and comfortable product. It is made of breathable 3D Mesh fabric and soft Lycra with the Viraloff™ by Polygiene® antibacterial treatment for maximum hygiene and enhanced breathability. Inside the mask there is a single layer, certified bacterial filter, easily replaceable. It allows to filter about 99% of bacteria and viruses emitted by the mouth exactly as required for surgical masks according to EN ISO 14683:2019. The filter will need to be replaced daily or even more frequently depending on the intensity of use of the mask.
Focus on sustainability: the use of a washable and reusable mask compared to the single-use ones contributes to the protection of the environment: the smaller surface of the filter compared to that needed to produce sanitary masks limits waste material and is therefore a more sustainable solution. Stratos Mask is now shopable trough the official La Sportiva e-commerce. Given the considerable demand and limited production capacity, priority of order fulfillment will see primarily entities, groups, associations and companies in the Trentino area as well as the possibility of online purchasing. The sale price is set at 19 euros and includes the washable and reusable mask plus 30 disposable filters. It will of course also be possible to purchase the filters separately with refills of 90 single filters at the price of 9,90 euro.
